There is no reason why the mother of the bride can’t glow on her daughter’s wedding day too! I work on mothers almost every week and most moms (there are those exceptions but we won’t get into that today…) love having their makeup done and being part of their daughter’s wedding morning of beauty. I always tell my mother of the brides who are skeptical of having their makeup done that although everyone’s eyes are on the bride most of the day, people notice the mother of the bride as well. It’s a fact. Mothers are often the last ones to sit down before the ceremony beings and are often the ones everyone rushes to after the ceremony to congratulate. Like it or not, MOB get noticed.
When it comes to makeup on mature skin, the rule is ‘less is more.’ I believe this and also practice it but I also feel that in today’s world of Botox and skin serums women aren’t looking their age anymore. The way women over 50 take care of their skin in 2015 is far better than even 10 years ago! I often meet mom’s now who can rock a smokey eye and a more dramatic look. It’s all in how you balance the features and enhance their natural beauty. Here are some of Vicki’s favourite makeup ideas for mothers of the bride. Enjoy!
If you’re a mother of the bride, accept the fact you will get noticed on your daughter’s wedding day. Get your makeup done professionally and strut your gorgeous self down the aisle feeling fabulous on your daughter’s big day!
