5 Essentials for Wedding Makeup

Posted by Rebecca Harper on

On your wedding day, you’ll want to look like the most gorgeous version of yourself. Whilst we love a glam bridal moment, a soft, natural look is timeless, allowing your best features to shine through. The beauty of natural wedding makeup is that it will suit every type of celebration and every type of dress, whether you’ve chosen to go boho, glitzy, or something more silky and sophisticated.

The key to soft bridal makeup is to use the best natural makeup products. As experts in simple but beautiful and luxurious makeup, Kjaer Weis has the perfect products for your wedding look.

Perfect bridal makeup needs the perfect makeup base – that’s where The Beautiful Primer comes in.

Suitable for all skin tones, our primer hydrates, smooths and luminizes, giving you soft, glowing skin. Not only will it create an even base for your makeup, but it will also continue to hydrate and improve your skin overtime, thanks to the certified organic ingredients.

Lavender Water soothes skin, reducing redness for a more even skin tone. There’s also Cold-pressed Olive Oil, a lightweight moisturizer that’s high in antioxidants to protect and repair the skin. Amcella Spilanthes Flower Extract, known as nature’s Botox, leaves skin plumper and firmer, minimizing the look of wrinkles.

The Beautiful Primer leaves skin radiant, boosting your natural luminosity under foundation. For an added glow on your wedding day, use a touch by itself on your décolleté.

For soft, natural wedding makeup, you’ll want a buildable, velvety foundation, to conceal without caking. Our Cream Foundation has been formulated like skincare, nourishing your skin from the outside in. Certified organic ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Seed Oil, and Sunflower Seed Oil work to soothe, moisturize and protect the skin. The result is a sumptuous semi-matte finish, with satin-soft hydrated skin.

As a buildable foundation, you can use as much or as little as you like to create your perfect natural bridal look. We recommend using the warmth of your fingers to blend a layer of cream foundation across your face or use a Blush makeup brush to target specific areas that may need some more coverage. You’ll want to ensure the foundation is well blended for a gorgeous even tone – this will keep your complexion pristine and prevent the camera from picking up any rogue patches.

The mascara you use for your soft wedding day makeup should amplify your natural lashes, building volume and definition for a wide-eyed look that doesn’t look fake. Our Im-Possible Mascara is certified organic, using sustainably sourced Beeswax, Carnauba Wax and Acacia Gum to create maximum volume for your lashes whilst still looking natural. The ultra-nourishing formula also includes Raspberry Fruit Water and Sunflower Seed Oil to repair, condition, and protect your lashes, encouraging healthy lash growth.

The creamy formula won’t clump, smudge, or flake throughout the day, ensuring your lashes stay silky soft and luscious all day long. We recommend starting with the curved side of the brush to coat lashes from the base to the tip, building up the volume. Then turn the brush to the flat side to define, extend and add extra lift.

For a classic romantic look on your wedding day, use a Cream Blush. Our cream blush creates a soft, natural flush with a dewy finish that will seamlessly melt into the skin. Our formula is buildable, so you can find the perfect rosy glow for your complexion, whether you prefer a sheer blush or something bolder.

As with our other beauty products, our cream blush uses carefully selected organic ingredients that also have skincare benefits, such as Sweet Almond Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil which deeply moisturize and improve skin’s elasticity. It also features Gardenia Florida Extract, which protects against damage from free-radicals and photoaging. Together, they‘ll leave you with a fresh, nourished glow for that perfect “blushing bride” look.

Our Cream Blush can be used on the cheeks, lips, and eyes, to bring together your natural, radiant complexion on your wedding day.

Don’t shy away from a lip color for your natural wedding day makeup. The right shade will accentuate your lips, and add to the timeless, classic look. Our Nude, Naturally Lipsticks come in eight flattering shades, so you can find that perfect nude to enhance the natural color of your lips. Our hydrating and creamy formula results in a true “your lips but better” effect, easily gliding onto your lips without tugging for beautiful, seamless color.

Our Nude, Naturally Lipsticks are made with certified organic and sustainably sourced Shea Butter and Beeswax, for a smooth and weightless feel that nourishes with wear. Create a sheer, diffused lip with a small dab or build-up color to make more of a statement. Apply easily directly from the tube or use a Lip Brush for more definition.
