2016 Montana Bride Guide to Makeup and Skincare

Our girl Alexa is fierce. Not only is she our resident model, but she also happens to be a talented and stylish makeup artist. We're super lucky to have her expertise on hand at Montana Bride. You can check out her guide below or in this year's issue of Montana Bride Magazine.

Here are some pointers for a classically beautiful makeup look. Enjoy!
  • Start out with a clean and moisturized face, preferably A spf tinted moisturizer is a great option!
  • Apply under eye concealer to dark circles and cover-up to blemishes or problem areas. Tip: pinkish hued concealer works wonderfully to hide purple tones in under eye circles. Greenish hued concealers counteract redness caused by blemishes.
  • With a large powder brush dip into skin toned or sheer powder, tap off excess and apply to face in circular motions.  
  • Apply bronzer from the top of the ear toward the mouth, directly underneath cheekbones and blend downward towards jaw, also into temples and on hairline, and underneath the chin. 
  • Blush on the apples of the cheeks. 
  •  Lightly fill in eyebrow with brown or grey on a slanted brush starting from the middle of each eyebrow working outwards, brush out any excess powder 
  • Curl eyelashes and apply two coats of mascara and done! 
  •  To create a more dramatic look, supplement with liquid liner on the top lid, add a wing for a cat eye! Or add shadow to the lid crease. A bold lip can always add a pop of color- be sure lips are exfoliated and moisturized and always use a liner especially if using a red or bright pink! A bit of highlighter directly above the Cupid's bow accentuates lips! 
  •  Set your face with a sheer powder (favorite brand: mineral veil) or spray for a long lasting effect!
Remember, the most beautiful things about your face are your expression and the quality of your skin. Wear sunscreen, wash your face every night, stay moisturized (I recommend facial oils in this dry climate), hydrate, and most importantly smile! The most beautiful girl in the room is always the one who is laughing.

  1. Each one of us is beautiful. It’s the way we choose to define our beauty that makes all the difference. A wreath of dark kohl around the eyes may do the trick for you or just a hint of smoke on the lids. Wedding Makeup
