Why it’s not a good idea too go to natural on your wedding day

I know that for you brides that don’t normally wear make up or you wear very little are afraid of going over board on your wedding day. I have been doing wedding make up for over 30 year and have seen all different extremes in make up trends and personal taste.

Mineral make up facts


  • Mineral makeup is lightweight, so it naturally blends to hide imperfections unlike traditional makeup which can be thick and heavy, making it harder to blend. Traditional makeup can also settle into the lines and wrinkles on your face, making your imperfections stand out.
  • Mineral makeup lacks moisture and other materials that cause bacteria to grow, so it can last 2 to 3 years. Traditional makeup has a shelf life of about 6 months.
  • Traditional makeup may contain some mineral ingredients, but it will also contain synthetic dyes, talc, oils, fragrances, and alcohols that can clog your pores, dry out your skin, and can cause allergic reactions.
  • Mineral makeup is based in a loose powder. Traditional makeup comes in a liquid or cream form.
  • Traditional makeup usually runs when it comes in contact with water. Mineral makeup is water-resistant and bonds to the skin, so it won’t smear or wash off.
  • Both types of makeup may contain bismuth oxychloride which can cause allergic reactions. However, since traditional makeup has a lower concentration of this ingredient than most mineral makeups do, it can be better for people with sensitive skin. Calla Lily's Natural mineral makeup does not contain any bismuth oxychloride

Timeless, Classic Beauty

I think of Audrey Hepburn when I think of a classic beauty her look is timeless. Calla Lily Cosmetics line of make up is build around the principle of Classic, Timeless Beauty. Colors are more natural and elegant,  chosen to provide the versatility to doll up like Kim Kardashian or simple and classic like Audrey Hepburn.

We chose minerals over talc powders wanting deeper pigmentation and lighter weight make up that is less irritating to the skin.

wedding Day Make Up

The Calla Lily suggests you

  • be yourself,
  • keep it classic
  • don’t go to trendy
  • go a little darker then you normally would
  • trust your make up artist


You are the star of the show, and your wedding is the stage. The people in the back row need to see you. The camera will wash you out if your make up is to light and you will look like you’re not wearing anything at all.

You want to play up your favorite feature(s), usually the eyes and lips. When your kids look back at your wedding pictures you want them to say, “mommy you look so pretty” not “mommy why are you wearing bright blue on your eyes” Keep your look timeless with a little of you mixed in.
