Many brides ask me how to incorporate pink into their bridal makeup. ‘Farmhouse Weddings’ became extremely popular in the last few years and soft rose shades accompanies the farmhouse style very well! It gives every wedding a touch of romantic and reflects beautifully in pictures! Today I will show you how easy it is to work pink shades into the makeup of your BIG day!

April Holder’s wedding (above in the picture) was one lovely winter wedding, taking place on December 6,2014.She wanted the makeup to be elegant, feminine and romantic to compliment her wedding colors blush pink and gold.

Her fairy skin tone works very well with warm colors like light brown and soft pink shades. For her eye makeup I applied pink onto her lid that gradually blended into a cashmere tone in the crease. I also highlighted her brow bone with my Carmina-Cristina highlighter to brighten and open her eyes. Finishing up the eye makeup, I used a light brown eyeliner to give her eye more definition. On her cheeks I applied a rose blush and for her lips I picked a pretty glossy nude tone to compliment her flowers.

This is how April describes her wedding-day vision:

I knew I wanted our wedding to be all about romance. I envisioned feminine accents with a little bit of glamour. Pale blush and glitzy gold were the perfect colors to compliment this theme. Carmina asked me about my vision for the big day and worked with me to give me the perfect wedding makeup. It was soft, feminine, and beautiful- flowing perfectly with the rest of our wedding details. The best part was I felt and looked like myself- just enhanced! My makeup lasted all day. I didn’t have to worry about reapplying, so I could really enjoy myself as the bride. Looking back at pictures, I am so happy I went with Carmina for my fairytale wedding!” ~April Holder
