Wedding anniversaries are indeed a very special day in one’s life and now is the time for you to add a spark to your married life. Not sure of how to do so? We’re here to help. It’s time to steal the show and surprise your spouse with your anniversary makeup look. Yes, of course, you want to look the best and creating your 1-year anniversary makeup look might sound overwhelming but it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Here are some marriage anniversary makeup looks that you can excel with ease.
Cleanse and moisturise well. Then, use a primer to visibly reduce large pores and get a smooth and even base. To nail the no-makeup makeup look, keep your marriage anniversary makeup look very natural, and let the texture of your skin shine through. For a quick and simple anniversary makeup look, we recommend skipping the foundation and going in straight with the concealer. This will help to cover up blemishes and brighten up your complexion. Next, lock your base, control oil, shine, and sebum on your face with setting powder. Not sure of your ideal concealer and powder shade? Head on to the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool to find a match that suits your skin tone and undertone in just a few clicks. Further, give your skin a naturally flushed look by adding the tiniest amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Go easy on the eyes, keep them simple and almost bare. Fill in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil and colour your eyelids with a nude eyeshadow. Coat your lashes with waterproof mascara. Complete your wedding anniversary makeup look by applying a tinted lip balm to enhance the natural colour of your lips.
To achieve this wedding anniversary makeup look, apply your base makeup well, including the full coverage foundation. Using foundation will help you get an even complexion and smooth texture. You can now find your foundation shade match on the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool. Next, sculpt your face and define your features by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. Create an effect of shadow and light to add sharpness to your marriage anniversary makeup look. Bring out your glow and add a spotlight to your face with a highlighter. Give a dramatic effect to your eyes by creating the cut crease eyeshadow look. Apply brown eyeshadow to the crease of your eyes and smudge it well. Then, use a brightening concealer across the lid and cut your crease in a fine semi-circle. Set it using white eyeshadow. Finish off your eye makeup by using eyeliner and creating the winged eyeliner look. For the lips, use maroon lipstick. If you are not sure of the lipstick shade that will suit you the best, try the Maybelline Lipstick Finder tool to pick a shade that matches your anniversary makeup mood.
3. Contrasting makeup look
If you have a quirky personality and want to try something new, then contrasting makeup look might work well for you. Begin this look by using the primer, foundation, concealer, and some loose powder as usual. Then, add a pop of colour to your face with a pink blush. Amp up your wedding anniversary makeup look by using an illuminating highlighter on your cheekbones, bridge and tip of your nose and your cupid’s bow. This will add a dazzling shine and glow to your skin. Take your eye makeup up a notch by colouring your eyelids using green eyeshadow and further, pair it with a blue eyeliner to elevate your lower lash line. Define and enhance the beauty of your eyes with kajal. Start your lip makeup by using a lip balm to nourish, soothe and protect your lips. Layer it on with fuchsia lipstick to have fun with contrasting colours.
