Shimmer isn’t great for wedding makeup because flash photography makes it appear bright and reflective.  Sometimes I feel like it even washes one out, hence why a lot of the time they tell you to darken your makeup a tad for photos. It depends on your photographer I guess.  I always use a highlight colour under the browbone on brides, and my favourite to use on mostly any bride is Vanilla pigment by MAC. It has a bit of a “shimmer” to it, but nothing overly glittery.

I think a matte colour for the outer V/crease looks the best though.  But by all means, I love experimenting with colour for brides. Especially those who aren’t afraid to have some fun with makeup!

If you want a natural look that will do well with photography and flash, try airbrush. It sounds kind of intimidating but it’s really great! The artist can control the amount of coverage and it seriously feels like you are wearing nothing at all! So light and soft.

MAC is really great, too, and it also helps to use a good primer for before you put on makeup, like Smashbox.

I am going to use a shimmery pencil on my lower eyelid rims and on the inner corner of my eyes, but everything else is matte or verrrrrry lightly shimmered.
