Sophisticated beauty

The 2017 glam bride make-up style

At Marylise we care for our brides! Not only should your bridal dress match all your wishes, we want every one of our brides to look stunning and ​to ​ make sure she blows her audience away.

We’ve asked ​Ines Borgonjon, the Senior Makeup Artist from M.A.C for some tips and tricks. Matching her make up expertise with our passion to design beautiful and unique easy ​chic dresses, we ​have ​created the ultimate temporary wedding look for future Marylise brides called ‘Sophisticated beauty’.

Sophisticated beauty is a sensual powerful look for a lovable ​‘femme fatale’​, which matches perfectly with the romantic touch of our Marylise dresses. Not only is this look sophisticated, it also focuses on the inner beauty by keeping the overall look natural. Add a touch of ​​Hush ​C​ream ​C​olour to highlight your cheekbones and your groom will be head over heels ​with​ this sensual look!

‘We want our brides to shine until the very last minute of their wedding.’

Ines: ‘We want our brides to shine until the very last minute of their wedding. Therefore, we start the day with an extensive clean​s​ing with our ‘Lightful C’ marine-bright formula (softening lotion)! After cleans​ing, it’s time to hydrate the skin with our ​S​tudio ​M​oisture ​C​ream for the face and ​mineralized charged water moisture cream for the eyes. Indispensable for a bridal look is a lip conditioner because there is obviously a lot of kissing involved on a wedding day! To further build on the look we use the ​S​tudio ​W​aterweight ​Foundation.

​Once the bas​e​ is ​ready, we start to build up the ultimate Marylise look;


  • Selected cheer powder (to make sure you don’t shimmer too much)
  • Hush: ​Cream ​Colour Base to highlight your cheek bones
  • Studio ​Sculpt Defining Powder to fin​ish



  • Base: ​Paint ​Pot ​Camel coat
  • Eye shadow: combination of ​grain, scene, nylon and carbon eye shadow (to really create that intense look!)
  • In Extreme ​Dimension ​Waterproof Mascara (so important: waterproof!)
  • Phone number pencil to add a little drama to the eyes
  • Brow ​Set ​Gel​ in​ clear to make sure your brows ​stay​ in place the entire day



  • Prep + Prime Lip primer as a base (will make sure your lipstick lasts forever)
  • Liptensity Doe lipstick
