Bridal How-to: Old Hollywood Makeup Tutorial


Hello, beautiful brides-to-be! Are you dreaming of channeling the timeless elegance and glamour of Old Hollywood on your wedding day? Look no further! In this blog post, I’ll walk you through a step-by-step tutorial on achieving an Old Hollywood-inspired bridal makeup look that will have you feeling like a true Hollywood starlet.

  1. Preparation: Start with a clean and well-hydrated face. Apply a moisturizer and a primer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup.
  2. Foundation and Concealer: For a flawless complexion, choose a foundation that matches your skin tone precisely. Use a brush or a beauty sponge to blend it evenly. Cover any imperfections with a concealer that is one shade lighter than your foundation.
  3. Contour and Highlight: Add definition to your face with a contour palette. Use the darker shades to sculpt your cheekbones, jawline, and nose. Then, bring back the glow with a highlighter on the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow.
  4. Blush: Dab a rosy blush on the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush. Opt for a shade that complements your wedding dress and overall look.
  5. Eye makeup: Create a classic smoky eye using neutral shades like browns and greys. Start with a light base color on the entire lid. Then, build the intensity by adding a darker shade in the crease and along the lash line. Finish with a coat of mascara to lengthen and volumize your lashes.
  6. Eyeliner: Define your eyes with a thin winged eyeliner. You can use a liquid or gel liner for a precise line. Make sure to extend the wing slightly for that classic Old Hollywood look.
  7. Lipstick: Choose a bold red lipstick to make a statement. Line your lips with a matching lip liner to ensure a precise application and prevent the color from bleeding.
  8. Finishing Touches: Set your makeup with a setting spray to keep it in place throughout the day. Add a touch of sparkle to your eyes or décolletage with a shimmery highlighter.
    Remember, the key to achieving an Old Hollywood makeup look is to keep it elegant and timeless. Each step should be applied with precision and finesse. Take your time and have fun with the process. You’re about to become a Hollywood bride!
