With this topic, the focus this year is on the self-confident, radiant woman. Puristic features, clear lines and lightness emphasise the young brideʼs natural beauty. Dress, make-up and styling are all inspired by the motto “less is more”.
No matter whether barefoot on the beach, in breaht-taking ballrooms or very relaxed in the garden – the modern bride enchants every location and her look embodies personality and glamour matching the ambience. Modern, individual, authentic, simple and, at the same time, unique, this is what the couture bridal label Annika Maria stands for. In her studio in Cologne, every dress is made with love and by hand, and makes “The Shining Bride” float on cloud nine!
The foundation of this bridal make-up is smooth and fine. This makes the complexion look fresh and natural. Impurities and redness are covered so that the skin appears flawless. Circles under the eyes are covered and make the eyes look more alert. In order to give the face shape and colour, it is gently contoured and given a warm tone with a bronzer. For a natural blush, rose-coloured rouge is applied to the cheeks. The highlights are placed specifically on the highest parts of the face and are blended well.
The eyebrows are combed and fixed, and uneven areas repaired. The first step for radiant eyes is the priming of the eyelids. A medium brown is used in the crease of the eyelid to give the eye a gentle depth, which is then combined with a bronze tone on the entire movable eyelid. This bronze tone is used for the lower lash line as well and thus creates a connection between the upper lid and the lower lash line. A luminous point is then set in the inner corner of the eye. The eyelashes are strongly accentuated at the top and bottom, however, separated and structured.
A rose-coloured lipstick is applied to the lips, filling and accentuating the lips. In order to make the whole look perfect and to make the lips look fuller, a slightly sparkling gloss is used.
