Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to Kanye West has been a huge story and following this past weekend.  Finally the wedding photos have been released and all have seen the bride in her gown and her gorgeous bridal look.  Her longtime makeup artist and friend Mario Dedivanovic is spilling his tips on creating her look for the wedding in Florence.

Mario saw the dress and took inspiration about her look from it. “I didn’t want to make too much of a statement with her makeup. We decided to go with something natural and timeless. I wanted to go with something clean and classic and I wanted her to look almost angelic.”

Talking to Australia’s Channel Nine breakfast show Mornings, Mario confirmed that Kim wanted her signature contoured makeup for the wedding, before explaining how he defined her cheekbones. “Contouring frames the face and chisels the cheeks. So basically it’s putting a little bit of bronzer on the hairline and jawline and on the hollows of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. It thins out the face and gives warmth to the face. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes, sometimes an hour. The most important [tip] is to blend, blend, blend.”

On her skin he went with a radiant, dewy look. For her eyes he went with warm tones and a liquid eyeliner on the lids. Of course he enhanced her lashes with individual false lashes by Kardashian Beauty and Urban Decay Perversion mascara and made them pop as they always seem to do in photos of the star. For the ceremony her lips was a peachy pink and then at the reception they switched it for a classic nude lip using L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Nude Ballet.

Bridal Makeup Trends always come from a number of factors,  Fashion Week, Celebrities, Red Carpet and the “it” colors.  Based off of these categories there are some certain trends that you will see on the bridal magazine covers and in photos trending.

Bridal Fashion Week had three of the most notable trends.

Cat Eye:  While this is not a new trend it is one that is here to stay.   A vintage retro look that works with many styles of brides looks and the cat eye can be subtle or dramatic based on the preference.

Pink Lips:  Carolina Herrera Bridal Show showcased the pink lip and rosy cheeks.  A romantic and fresh look that are flattering, easy to wear, and reapplying is super easy when it comes to touch ups.

Luminous Skin:  Diane Von Furstenburg‘s runway show had the best example of flawless luminous skin.  Gorgeous skin is always on trend and it looks like perfection in photos.  While everyone is not blessed with amazing skin, there are ways to achieve luminous skin using products.

Celebrities can create a trend with just one photo.  Think Jennifer Lopez and her amazing sun kissed Glow.

Jessica Alba set a trend when she walked the red carpet of the People Choice Awards this year.  A silver and grey smokey eye with a pink lip.

Taylor Swift is one gal that really does show a great face.  Her typical style is a red lip, matte foundation and a lighter eye so as not to compete with that lip.  A classic Hollywood glamour look that is gorgeous.

The ‘it” color of the year is chosen and for 2014 it is Radiant Orchid.  The color of the year will be used in bridesmaids gowns, color and decor themes and covers of the magazines.  The way you can translate it into bridal makeup is by purple hues of eye shadows.  It is a great color shadow for many, which makes this years “it” color a great makeup option.

While it is all about your style and what you feel comfortable wearing.  We all want gorgeous photos and you may need to wear a little more makeup than you are used to it is a balance.  A great makeup artist can help you find that balance and achieve a stunning look for your big day.
