A Closer Look with MudSA

Hair and Makeup is an integral part of the finished look for your wedding day! We chatted to Brenda, industry front runner and owner of MudSA for the inside scoop on bridal beauty.

With MudSA you get high quality products in radiant colours and a team of professionals specializing in Bridal Makeup.

What are the current trends in bridal hair and makeup?

We found it strangely differs in each Region, brides are also more comfortable with more heavy bridal makeup compared to your typical soft pastel bridal look, more bold lips are chosen and more messy Boho up-dos. 

How do you help a bride select her hair and makeup style for her big day?

We assist by recommending colours, styles and based on their personal facial features, skin-hair and eye color for best complimentary styles.  It is of utmost importance to remember that reference images are welcome however you are not the person in the image and therefore will never be able to be 100% replicated as we are all created unique.

Which MUD products are your favourite and tell us why you can’t live without them.

I personally love the HD Air Foundation from MUD.  You can use this without your airbrush and apply with a MUD Latex sponge, building it to preferred coverage.  Why do I love it?  It has a built-in fixative that works as a double sided tape – keeping your makeup in place and no need for over powdering your skin dehydrating it.

Do you have any handy tips for our bride-to-be preparing for their big day?

It is important to have a proper and regular skin regime, keep the skin hydrated by drinking enough water, have a healthy lifestyle with enough sleep. No amount of makeup will cover up years of neglect and abuse we put our bodies through.
