Legendary MUA Bobbi Brown Shares Her Secret to Perfect Wedding Makeup

Hint: it’s a color you’d never expect.

When we caught up with legendary makeup artist to the stars and inspiration to the entire world of beauty, Bobbi Brown, we knew she’d have a few beauty tricks up her sleeve — but we had no idea her secret to perfect wedding makeup was based on a color most would never consider for their wedding day and eating a super healthy diet of kale and avocados (you’re officially free to scoop some guac out after your avocado proposals).

While loading up on kale and avocado seems like a rational response from the arguable boss of realistic beauty and justBobbi.com, a modern lifestyle platform full of wellness and beauty wisdom, the idea that all women can benefit from a yellow-toned foundation on their wedding day blew us away.

“You want to look like yourself, at your best, on your wedding day — so enhance your favorite features,” Bobbi told BridalPulse exclusively. Make sure to use long-wear eye products in case there are tears, and use a yellow-toned foundation that blends seamlessly into your skin.”

It turns out yellow-tinged foundations offer your natural face a slightly-warmer-than-natural glow, which is everything you could ever dream of on camera. It’s a secret that celebrity makeup artists like Bobbi have been using for decades to give red carpet stunners their most photogenic faces.

“Apply a sheer powder, especially onto your t-zone, so you don’t look shiny in pictures. A pretty, pink cheek will always stand the test of time.”

Bobbi, who is also opening an impossibly chic boutique hotel, The George Montclair, in New Jersey, says this near-magical beauty combination works for most skintones and results in long-lasting, perfect wedding makeup that you’ll want to recreate time and time again.
