Spring Wedding Makeup Tutorial & Wedding Makeup Must-Haves

If your calendar is any indication, the spring wedding season is officially upon us. Taking advantage of longer days and warm sunlight, spring weddings can feel especially romantic — and usually call for style and beauty to match, whether you’re a guest or the bride to be. So, while spring wedding makeup look has all the usual steps you might expect for a big event, such as foundation and lip colour, there are other factors to consider. For instance, you might want to reflect a certain colour palette with your makeup look, or steer away from a dramatic, moody smokey eye.

What ultimately sets it apart from your typical wedding makeup tutorial is that it leans more natural, from a lit-from-within flush to neutral eye makeup. With that in mind, here’s how to create the best spring wedding makeup — and the products and tools you may need on-hand to get the look for yourself.

Prep Your Skin

A clean canvas is key to a fresh makeup look, which is why it’s best to start with your skin.

Begin with a fresh face

A glowing complexion starts with healthy skin, which is why proper skincare is essential before you apply your makeup. Not only will this create a smooth, even canvas on which to apply your makeup, but it can offer long-term results, too, in the form of more radiant skin over time. Begin by cleansing, then lightly exfoliate with the Refining Crème Polish; it gently buffs away dead skin cells to even out texture and tone, and, better yet, works for all skin types. Follow with a lightweight moisturiser, such as The Perfect Crème, which hydrates skin and provides antioxidants.

  • Prime before your foundation

    The secret to spring bridal makeup that doesn’t simply slide off? Makeup primer. For the unfamiliar, makeup primers work to extend the wear of your foundation and concealer, as well as create a smooth canvas for a more seamless application. How to use primer for wedding makeup: Immediately following your skincare routine, dispense a dime-sized amount of primer onto your fingertips and massage it into skin.

    Perfect Your Complexion

    Layering your base products — think foundation, concealer, and powder — creates an even, flawless backdrop for the rest of your makeup.

    Apply a sheer foundation

    A sheer foundation application for weddings sets the tone for the rest of your spring wedding makeup look. Lightweight foundation makeup, such as the Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Foundation, offers the right amount of coverage to even out skin tone while still looking effortlessly natural. (Plus, it offers 12 hours of fade-proof and humidity-proof wear, allowing you to go the day without touch-ups.)

    How to apply foundation makeup for a wedding look: Apply a single pump of the foundation and blend it into skin using the Real Flawless Foundation Brush, which buffs it into skin for a sheer, natural finish. Apply it only where you need it and blend well. (If needed, blend below the jawline to create harmony between the face and neck. You’ll be in the spotlight and photographed from all angles, so making sure there are no visible lines or streaks is key.

  • Conceal and camouflage

    How to apply concealer for wedding looks? Simple: If you begin with a sheer foundation as your base, a few dabs of concealer will seamlessly blend into skin. When it comes to concealer, a little goes a long way, so start light with concealer, applying it only where needed — typically beneath the eyes, around the nose (to conceal redness), and over any blemishes or dark spots.

    For the under-eyes, consider Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Concealer, which conceals dark circles without creasing. Then, set the concealer with Secret Brightening Powder For Under Eyes, which also brightens the area.

    For everywhere else, the Secret Camouflage Concealer features two shades, which allows you to customize the colour to get the perfect match to hide any visible imperfection you’re trying to cover. Using your hand as a palette, start with the shade that most closely aligns with your skin tone, then add in the second shade; blend until you have the right match.

  • Set your complexion

    Few makeup products work harder than translucent powder, especially when it comes to extending the wear of your makeup. To keep foundation and concealer from budging, set makeup with a translucent powder. Consider the Translucent Loose Setting Powder, which blurs and leaves skin with a soft-focus finish, controls shine for 24 hours, and offers 16-hour wear.

    Not sure how to apply translucent powder? The Velour Puff makes it especially easy: Press it into the powder, and then fold it and rub the two halves together to saturate the puff and tap to remove excess powder. Then, using a rolling motion to apply the powder to skin all over, being extra careful to cover areas prone to shine, like the forehead and cheeks.
