Are you an Acidic bride to be?

Achieving that perfect bridal glow and perfect skin tone is crucial to look best for one’s wedding. As a make up artist for 10 years now. I often encounter brides who have this skin concern. They tell me that they have acidic skin.

but what really is an acidic skin?

Our skin is usually coated by an acid mantle that protects our skin from irritants such as bacteria, fungi and such. It’s normal pH ( power of hydrogen) is naturally between 4.5 and 6.2.

Many factors can affect our natural skin pH like age, oiliness, moisture, humidity that causes a decrease in the skin pH making it more acidic (<4.5)

This decrease in the pH causes the make up to oxidize. It triggers oil production as well as a darker change in the foundation color.

Any bride wouldn’t want a tanned orangy face on their wedding day right?

But don’t you fret any skilled make up artist would easily determine if you are acidic or not with their trained eyes.

Just like our recent bride Ms. Dianne ❤️

She has a very nice skin and lovely facial feature but she voiced out her concern that she is acidic and that she wants to look naturally fresh , radiant and glowing on her big day.

For Acidic brides we usually adjust the skin foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her natural skin tone.

so even though the skin oxidizes. We can still achieve that natural skin and glowing tone that we want. ❤️

Such a lovely and radiant bride. ❤️

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” -Sophia Loren

I was ecstatic when Anna,our bride got in touched with us for her bridal make up. She is one of the prettiest faces in our batch which made me feel blessed that she gave her trust to us to do her bridal make up on her big day. Anna gave us her concern that she tends to become acidic when make up is applied on her. The application tends to darken or change in color. It has been her problem eversince. ( Acidity happens when there is a decrease in the skin’s pH. There is no exact etiology on how this happens or what causes this). As a make up artist we carefully mix and match the foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her skin tone so that when the acidity reacts we still  can achieve the natural,fresh and radiant glow that she wants for her day. As a make up artist it is very important for me that my bride is very confident on her look on her wedding day. As every bride glows on her big day Anna’s beauty radiates and reminds me of a Disney Princess. Happiness and love were beaming from Anna. Here’s the bridal make up look that our glam team made for Anna on her special day.
