EXCLUSIVE: The Scoop on Carrie Underwood's Wedding Makeup

07/15/2010 at 12:00 PM ET

When Carrie Underwood walked down the aisle on July 10 with her Canadian hockey player beau Mike Fisher, she looked the part of a fairy princess, from her Monique Lhuillier gown and sparkling tiara, to the final piece of the puzzle–her perfect makeup. “It was the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever been to–and I’ve been to a lot of weddings,” the country star’s makeup artist (and bridesmaid!) Melissa Schleicher tells PEOPLE. “Everywhere you looked there was sparkle.” To balance out the shimmer, Schleicher went with a neutral palette, explaining, “Usually on award shows, we really vamp it up, and Carrie looks beautiful but [we] toned down a little bit. We just took it down a notch.” Getting the look flawless despite the sweltering Georgia weather began with creating a base using the Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System. “It was so hot there that [many] foundation[s] would melt off, and airbrush is really great for heat,” she explains. To define Carrie’s eyes, Schleicher used colors from Too Faced’s Eye Kit. “It’s amazing. It has all the colors you need. And I wet it to get that shimmery look and to get the golds to pop out and it makes it stay put.” She then made Carrie into the proverbial blushing bride with one of the star’s favorite products, M.A.C blush in Pink Swoon, “It’s just a beautiful bride blush–it gives that beautiful pinky color.” To get Carrie’s lips ready for her first legally-married kiss, Melissa went with Barely Legal Glamour Gloss by Too Faced over M.A.C lipstick in soft pink Hue. Tell us: What do you think of Carrie’s bridal look? What is your favorite wedding makeup style?

Bubbles on

I think Carrie is so Beautiful, She doesn’t need any make up. Look at Her Picture from when She first appeared on American Idol till now, as She matured, She became more Beautiful. And She has a Beautiful sense in Fashion. I have yet to See a picture of Her, where She didn’t look good, and She looks good in everything She wears. Carrie is a very Beautiful Person, inside and out. The first time She won the Top Female Country Singer, and there was all the bull with Faith. Carrie without hesitation, forgave what Faith called a misunderstanding, where some Stars would of held a grudge. Carrie is not a stuck up Diva. She is a beautiful Person. I remember when She First won on the American Idol, and Her Mother made a statement, I just hope they don’t change
‘CARRIE” She is a beautiful Girl. Now We all know what She meant. Congratulations, Carrie and Mike.

Denise on

She is a truly beautiful girl that’s for sure, but it also helps that the both of them have big bucks. I wish for them a very blessed and happy marraige for years to come.

belle start on

Of course she looks flawless, she always has on two lbs of makeup, ten lbs of fake hair and of course the orange tan. Can’t stand her screaming instead of singing. Hope she retires soon.

It really is SCORCHING! I don’t know how she kept that on! My make-up melts off everyday… I guess I’ll try these pointers.

Erica on

Mahala…you are an idiot! Why would you post such a snide comment? Carrie is a beautiful you woman with loads of talent..you’re dumb!

Cecilia DeAngelis on

I want to know what Eyeliner she used!! Please!!!

Kelly Barnes on

The bride is a natural beauty – yes = and her make up stylist does AWESOME work!… Melissa Schleicher finds a way to enhance Carrie’s natural beauty and beautiful features without over-shadowing them. Very pretty look for a bride. Simply gorgeous!

Tyler on

Carrie and Mike i am so happy for both of you. CONGRAGULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! Love you both. Hope you guys have a great life together…xo

Andie on

Money can make anyone look good. Have you seen Carrie without makeup!! At that, she married a hunter-someone who kills innocent animals for no reason. It’s not like he’s starving. Also, how does that exactly mesh with her love for animals??

Charu Vig on

Oh she looks divine !

GetALife on

she’s a vegetarian because she chooses to be she doesn’t preach to those who eat meat, she respects everyone’s choices it’s not like she works for “PETA” everyone in her family eat meat and when she goes home she brings her own food because they serve meat for dinner…you can’t help who you fall in love with,she accepts him the way he is and his decisions…on those days he goes hunting she just wont go, he is who he is and she loves him. hunting doesnt define mike, his heart and beliefs do.

miranda lambert also loves to hunt, does that mean carrie should cut her friendship with her i dont think so!!

There are definitely a number of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to carry up. I offer the ideas above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you carry up the place the most important factor can be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
