The Guide: To Summer Wedding Makeup

The Guide: To Summer Wedding Makeup

It’s wedding season! If you’re the lucky bride-to-be, bridesmaid, or a dear friend to the bride, you’re aware of how stressful planning for a wedding can be. Here at Mented we’ve taken a vow to always have your back. So we've created a step-by-step guide to make your perfect summer bridal look simple.



Soft and Glowy Bridal Look

Step 1: Light Foundation & Concealer

Like always make sure to properly moisturize and prime your face before applying your base. This will smooth the surface of your skin for a flawless application. When choosing a foundation it’s ultimately up to your preference. We recommend a satin or matte finish for a natural look that will last all day long.


Step 2: Bronzer
Lightly apply bronzer to add warmth and dimension to your face.


Step 3: Lightly Fill Brows
Using a brow pencil or powder fill in your eyebrows following your natural eyebrow shape. 


Step 4: Soft Shimmer Eyeshadow
For your lids apply a soft shimmer eyeshadow of your choice. Our bride is wearing a champagne shade and a soft brown in her crease to add depth to her eyes.  


Step 5: A Touch of Highlighter
Glow inside and out on your wedding day by applying highlighter above your cheekbones. For those with light to medium skin tones use a champagne color. If you have a deep to dark skin tone use a rose gold or bronze highlighter to look lit-from-within.  


Step 6: Mascara
Go in liberally with your favorite mascara to add volume and length to your lashes.


Step 7: A Gorgeous Nude Lip
Go in with a gorgeous nude lipstick that will complement your soft and glowy makeup effortlessly. Our model is wearing our lipstick in Peach Please.



Glam and Glowy Bridal Look

Picking up where we left off with the soft and glowy bridal look, we're adding a little drama for those brides that live for glamour!

Step: 1 Bronzer
Deepen that bronzer to chisel out your cheekbones and add more definition to your face.


Step 2: Soft Smoky Eye
What’s a glam look without a smoky eye? Go in with a chocolate brown on your outer crease to add dimension. Make sure to blend well for a soft transition from your shimmer shadow.


Step 3: Lashes!
Apply wispy lashes to add a little drama to your look.


Step 4: Under Eye Shadow
Take a small eyeshadow brush and run a soft brown eyeshadow under your lower lash line from tear duct to outer corner.


Step 5: Apply Eyeliner to your Waterline With a white or peach colored eyeliner lightly line your waterline. This will help your eyes pop and make you look more awake.


Step 6: Soft Blush
Don’t be afraid to add blush underneath your cheekbones! This will add warmth to your face.


Step 7: Add Highlighter
For a glam look can you really have too much highlighter?


Step 8: A Gorgeous Nude Lip
For this look our model is wearing our soft tan, Brand Nude.
