I recently got an email from a bride asking me for advice on what to ask makeup artists before she chooses one. So I got to thinking and came up with a list of five things you absolutely must ask a makeup artist before hiring them.
I created this board to give brides an idea of what they should do if their Valimah outfit (or wedding outfit, you modern brides!) is blue. My sister-in-law had a gorgeous red outfit with deep blue accents, and we had an incredible time picking decor. Since most brides these days tend to not want to focus so much on the “red” (way overdone) I created an inspiration board around this particular lengha that plays around with the blue and cream hues more.
Whereas the dress does not have a hint of white, I think it’s perfectly OK to place cream or champagne colored accents on the cake, depending on your embroidery. I think where most brides go wrong is where they try to mimic the teal or almost pastel shade of their blue outfit in their makeup. It’s absolutely not necessary to have teal colored eyeshadow, what you can do is play up your gorgeous almond-shaped Pakistani eyes and use this silvery smokey eye makeup (find details on my Pinterest).
I also love that hydrangeas can be found in blue if you must have blue centerpieces! You can mix your flowers with shades of deep purple and cream or gold colored flowers if you want to.
What colors do you struggle finding wedding inspiration for?
