DNA Royal Wedding - The Beautiful Bride

Every bride strives to look flawless on their special day and with great reason! Not only do you want to impress your husband-to-be but your wedding is probably the most photographed event in your life. If you’re having a professional makeup artist do your makeup on your big day I highly suggest using an artist you’ve used in the past. Using a trusted artist guarantees that they understand your skin type and preferences. If you’re using someone for the first time, book a trial! Don’t let a full face of glam go to waste and coordinate a mini session with your photographer to take photos to celebrate your engagement or even a boudoir shoot.

For my daughter's wedding we hired the amazing Claudia Betancur! She has done makeup for some of the biggest celebrities and we trusted her completely for the special event.

LOREN'S TIP: Purchase a compact palette for touch-ups!

If you’re doing your own glam make sure you practice a few times beforehand to test how long your makeup lasts. I love the "I Do" palette because it’s easy to use and perfect to keep on hand for touchups throughout your event.

Motives® Mavens I Do Palette x Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jackie Gomez

“I created this palette for the makeup artist that wants a go-to palette with the perfect colors for everyone, and for the bride to touch up and/or do her own makeup for the special day.” - Jackie Gomez



  1. Start the look by applying Motives I Do Palette in Dance to the crease
  2. Blend Motives I Do Palette in Rings on the lid and inner corner of the eye
  3. Use Motives I Do Palette in Toast to blend the top of the crease
  4. Highlight under the brow brown with Motives I Do Palette in Lace
  5. Use the Motives I Do Palette Kohl Eyeliner in brown to line to top lid
  6. Line the bottom lash line with Motives I Do Palette in Dance and finish the look with Motives All Day Liquid Stick in Love Bites

LOREN'S TIP: Wear a matte lipstick for your ceremony and touch up with gloss throughout the rest of the night!

LOREN'S TIPS: Wear waterproof makeup!

If you know you’re going to be an emotional wreck at your wedding I highly suggest choosing waterproof makeup products! Even if you’re not one to get emotional, this will help prevent natural running from mascara and eyeliner.
