Bridal Makeup Tips from Mally Beauty

PS: stay tuned for today's giveaway launching this afternoon for great Mally Beauty products

Celebrity make-up artist Mally Roncal of Mally Beauty is known for perfecting long-lasting makeup techniques for on-stage performances and 8-hour photo shoots. When a professional stylist isn't in the budget, Mally has the tips and products brides can use on their own. "Try out your entire look about a month in advance so you can do follow-up trials to perfect the look," suggests Mally. Below is a sampling of her advice:

BROWS
According to Mally, eyebrows are the finishing touch that literally frame the face. She suggests brides start grooming their brows 6 months before the big day. For the day of, ensure perfectly set brows with a long-wearing eyebrow kit such as the Mally Beauty 24/7 Brow Shaping System ($38) Whether eyebrows are length impaired or sad little bald spots are still lingering, the search for THE most fabulous eyebrow product is over!

BRIGHT EYES
Let's face it, wedding planning is exhausting! Don't let dark circles and tired eyes get you down, Mally Beauty's Lightwand Eye Brightener ($25) is the perfect trick for awakening the face. Just a dab of the illuminating powder in the inside corner of the eyes is all a bride needs!

FACE
The red carpet-worthy handmade formula of Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation ($45) provides full-coverage while giving skin a breathable, natural look.

Set the foundation with one of Mally's newest products – Poreless Perfection Skin Finisher ($45), an invisible, matte finisher made with light diffusing, crushed quartz for a shine-free finish.

Mally suggests testing out the perfect foundation color and application a week before the wedding by taking photos in outdoor and indoor light to ensure that the face, body and neck match PERFECTLY.
