It is important that your makeup look its absolute best for your wedding day.
Whether you plan to marry on a beach at noon or at night under the stars,
you will look and feel great by keeping your makeup simple.
You don’t want to much, nor too little, a natural look is very important.
This is not the time to be experimenting with new looks.
Your makeup should enhance your beauty, not hide it.
Here are some tips to help you achieve your perfect bridal makeup:
• If you are having a facial done, make sure it is at least two weeks
prior to your wedding.
• If your skin is prone to breakouts, see your dermatologist
3 or 4 months before your wedding.
• Staying hydrated is important to keeping you looking refreshed.
Drinking lots of water will also flush out impurities from the skin.
• Eyebrows should be shaped 5-7 days before the wedding.
Be sure not to pluck on your wedding day because you could
end up with unattractive red bumps that are difficult to cover.
• On your wedding day blend your makeup well and let set.
• Choose a lipstick that lasts. Go easy on the lip liner.
Be sure to check that you don’t have lipstick on your teeth.
Line and fill mouth with a neutral pencil to make lipstick stay on longer.
• To lengthen wearing time of your lipstick, apply a light layer of powder
over your lipstick then apply another layer of lipstick.
• If you are doing your own makeup, see a beauty consultant and
purchase your make up at least 3 months in advance. Then practice
until you’ve got the perfect makeup.
• Waterproof mascara is a great idea just in case you get a little weepy.
• A very light application of facial powder will set your makeup.
• Keep your powder, mascara, and lipstick in your purse,
so you can freshen up at a moments notice.
• If you discover that dreaded pimple on your wedding day, do not squeeze it!
Just apply a drop of visene to get the red out, cover with concealer,
and apply foundation.
• When slipping into your gown put a towel over your face
so you don’t get makeup on your wedding dress.
• Avoid glittery or dewy looks – these are not very receptive for photographs
and you may come out looking greasy.
Water based foundation
looks most natural in photos.
• If your wedding is outside be sure to apply sunscreen first.
