How to Create White Dress Makeup Look?

For white dress makeup, it is important to ace your base makeup first, because the colour white brings out your complexion. I like to follow this step-by-step skin makeup routine.


  • Step 1: I begin with a CTM routine and then apply primer on my face and neck.

  • Step 2: The next step is a hydrating foundation. I dot it on my face and neck and then blend it with a brush.

  • Step 3: I need extra coverage on my under-eye area and on blemishes, so I apply concealer on these areas and blend it with a moist makeup sponge.

Eye Makeup for White Dress Step by Step


  • Step 1: First, I apply my eyeshadow of choice on my lids and blend it well.

  • Step 2: After eyeshadow, I always apply eyeliner or kajal on my lash lines.

  • Step 3: The final step is mascara because my eye makeup will look incomplete without it. I brush my lashes with the mascara wand to go for a second coat in case I need more volume.

I love this strobe cream because it blends so beautifully and does not enhance my skin texture. It has a smooth and shiny formula that does not have any chunky glitter finish.
