Turkish Bridal Make-up

For a bride who appreciates her natural beauty, but wants to add something extra on her wedding day, natural or soft glam bridal makeup can be an ideal choice. This is typically a light to medium natural foundation base to give you enough coverage to last hours, while still highlighting your natural beauty.  There are a few different ways you can put this look together, but usually, it means focusing your glam in one area of your face, with natural bases to complement these features. That could mean a lighter base with a corner smokey eye to make your eyes pop. Or you could choose to keep your eyes softer and go for a bolder medium foundation with a contour to emphasize your cheekbones. Natural glam is a perfect middle ground if “no makeup” makeup is too subtle for your big day, but full glam with a strong contour, bold lips, and glitter everywhere isn’t your style. It’s all about looking effortless while being a slightly more glamorous and put-together version of your natural self.
