Bridal makeup tips: Top 5 do’s and don’ts
On your special day you want to radiate and look your best and it can be difficult to choose the perfect dress, ideal location and put together a perfect look for the big day. The make-up you choose is very important, since it has to bring out your beauty effortlessly, fit the dress and the theme of the wedding and look amazing for the entire day and night.
Here are some tips for your bridal make-up and some things you will want to avoid:
- DO – Make-up testing before the wedding
Make sure you try out the make-up look prior to the wedding. Take your time to see what colors you would like to include, what you want to emphasize – lips, eyes or cheeks. Think of what the theme of the wedding will be and what your wedding dress style is and try to make them all work together, make-up included. Another preparation you need to do at least a few days before the wedding is getting a fake tan, as you need it to set and not risk staining your dress.
- DON’T – Don’t make foolish experiments on your wedding day
Trying to experiment with the make-up for your wedding day is not a great idea, there is a great chance you will later regret it. Stick with the colors and textures you already know look good on you. A natural looking make-up is recommended, in order to keep the focus on your face and not become the main attraction in itself. Don’t use your wedding day to show a trendy make-up that’s in vogue, it might look silly many years from now.
- DO – Test your bridal make up against white clothes
When trying out your make-up before the wedding, wear a white t-shirt and test how the make-up looks in natural light, but also how it behaves when photographed with and without a flashlight. Wearing a white shirt will help you see how the colors pop-out against a light color and how the dress will reflect on your face. Try on your bridal accessories as well to see if the final look is too overwhelming.
- DON’T – Don’t skip on skincare preparations
Even if the wedding preparations can be hectic and you will have to hurry up and get it all done in time, do not skip your skincare preparations on this day. In order for the make-up to look perfect, it needs to be applied on good looking, healthy skin. Before the wedding make sure you exfoliate gently and keep your skin moisturized. You want your skin to be glowing underneath your make-up and not be covered completely by it.
- DO – Invest in top-quality make-up products
This is a good time to invest money in your make-up, by buying professional products and/or hiring a make-up artist. This way, you will make sure your make-up will last the whole day and night and that it will look at its best after sweating, being agitated, being exposed to the outdoors and maybe crying. Hiring a make-up artist will help a lot, since they know how to dose the colors and textures in order to give the best result possible. They can also apply fake lashes and they have the experience to make them look natural and fabulous.They can offer advice and come up with ideas you didn’t think of, plus you won’t waste time doing your own wake-up on the big day.
These are some basic tips to take into consideration when preparing your bridal make-up, the key is to make sure your skin looks at its best, to choose the make-up carefully and not overdo it and you want it to last as much as possible, since you will be wearing it for many hours in different conditions.
Just make sure you will have a great time and eliminate all the worries for this beautiful day! Prepare your skin in advance, choose minerals makeup because it is made of organic ingredients, and make sensible choices when it comes to color combos. The above mentioned dos and don’ts should be of great assistance in helping you radiate when walking down the aisle.
