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?

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.

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!

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??

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!!
