Stop everything you’re doing because Ariana Grande just shared photographs from her intimate wedding ceremony and she looks beyond beautiful. She married Dalton Gomez, a luxury real estate agent, and her boyfriend for over a year in a tiny, twenty people function. She gave her fans a sneak peek through social media and everyone was super thrilled.
Ari wore a strapless, backless silk gown and a short veil with a ribbon bow. She also kept true to herself by wearing a bridal version of her signature hairstyle: a chic half-up ponytail that left soft and glossy curls cascading down her back.
While everything about this is picture-perfect, it’s the pop star’s makeup that we’re gawking at. It’s soft and subtle and just so soothing to the eyes. So, if you want to recreate Ari’s wedding day makeup, we have a step-by-step guide you can follow.
If you want your makeup to look gorgeous, you’ve gotta put in the effort of prepping your skin. Cleanse it with a gentle cleanser and then dab on some toner. You can then go in with moisturiser and primer to make your skin look dewy and radiant from within.
Here’s a pro tip: if you want your skin to have a glow then mix in some serum in your foundation and it’ll blur out your imperfections and give you a soft-focus effect. Put on this concoction on your face and blend it well using a damp sponge. Work in thin layers so that your makeup doesn’t cakey. Wherever you need extra coverage, you can go in with concealer and a lighter shade of concealer in your under-eye area to brighten it up. You can then lightly dust loose powder all over to avoid creasing.
For eye makeup like Ariana did, first start by priming your lids and setting them in place, this will create a smooth base for your shadows. Then use a neutral pink shade in your crease with a feather-light hand and a fluffy brush. Deepen the colour using another matte pink shade focussing on the outer V mostly. This will give you a more lifted and defined look. Finally, blend out all the edges and lightly dust a cream shadow over your lid to make it look coherent. Then, in true Ari style apply a thin winged liner and throw on a pair of wispy lashes.
If you want killer cheekbones and a sharp jawline like the 7 Rings singer then contour your face using a cream contour and then set it in place with a powder one. Make sure that blend it all well so that your makeup doesn’t look streaky and patchy. Then apply a cream blush in a parallel line with the contour for an even more lifted look. Finish it off with some champagne highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, your cupid’s bow and your brow bone.
To make your lipstick last longer always start by lining your lips and filling them in with a lip pencil. Then go in with a matte pinkish nude formula of your choice. You can even try a little hack of lightly placing a tissue on your lips and dabbing some translucent powder over it and then going in with another coat of lipstick. This will make it totally budge-proof.
Doesn’t Ari look angelic? We’re sending love to the happy couple! ❤️
