This is a post for the mother of the bride.
I was first inspired to write this post after the wedding day of my client Naomi in February this year. Naomi’s mother Susan was a total knockout, along with her beautiful daughter, with her creamy skin and bold red lip.
So often as mothers of the bride, and mothers in general, you like to slink off in to the back ground, or get just a ‘quick touch-up’ rather than book yourself in for full make-up session with the make-up artist.
The wedding day is not doubt about the bride; she is an angelic vision and the princess for the day. But YOU, beautiful mama, are the Queen, and the reason she has so wisely chosen such a fabulous man! You also deserve full pampering and honoring on this special day.
I was so impressed by Susan, and that she made no apologies in having this classic 1940’s ‘Screen-Queen’ look and bright lip, that I decided to do a post on make-up for beautiful strong women.
Below are some of my favorite strong women (and also mothers) who know how to rock a bold make-up and an amazing attitude. Shine on!
HELEN MIRREN – Helen always looks sexy and perfectly understated. Her make-up and styling is always on-point!
SUSAN SARANDON – Susan Sarandon is just plain hot and not afraid to show it! She can do creamy neutrals or French screen siren and still look classy.
JERRY HALL – Jerry may have been a supermodel, but this woman is aging gracefully and still walks a red carpet with beautiful confidence and style.
MERYL STREEP – Always classy, AND beautiful with either a red lip, or a soft smokey eye.
