3 Bridal Makeup Looks for Colorado Brides with Michael Moore | Little White Dress Part of 5280 Bridal Shoot

We were so pleased to be a part of this photo shoot with 5280 Magazine. We already posted the beautiful photos from the original article, but we thought brides would benefit from these make up tips from Michael Moore too. Reposted from 5280 Magazine

With 22 years of experience, Michael Moore has become the go-to makeup artist for Denver brides. His philosophy—that makeup doesn’t need to be complicated to be beautiful—helps Moore keep brides from going overboard with makeup on their wedding day. To get the complete look of each theme, watch Moore’s video tutorial below.

Classic: Think of a timeless beauty like Grace Kelly. To get the flawless yet natural complexion, spray on ERA FACE Foundation (it even covers blemishes and tattoos). Next, create a soft, smoky eye using a mushroom-colored mineral eye shadow on the lid and under the eye, then line with black for definition.

Modern: Think edgy but beautiful. Start with a spray-on foundation, and use a mineral-powder illuminating concealer for a perfect finish. For a sexy, smoky eye, apply silver on the lids, blending up to the crease, and fill in the corner to accentuate the shape of the lid. Finally, line both the top and bottom lash lines.

Mountain: A Colorado mountain wedding calls for a look that is both pretty and natural. Cheeks should always look as if you’ve been exercising, so find a cream or powder blush that will add brightness. Gloss is a nice way to keep the lips kissable and moist, so go for a sheer lip in a natural tone. Simply Moore Holographic Lip Gloss, $22, simply-moore.com.
