Makeup Tips for Your Wedding Day
Your every blush, smile and kiss will be recorded on film, so your bridal makeup needs to be picture perfect. It should cover any imperfections and highlight your features, while appearing subtle and pretty.
Venue and event time play key roles; you'll want to adjust your makeup for day or evening and for indoor or outdoor lighting.
- Flip through bridal magazines and search for pictures that capture your ideal bridal look. Keep these pictures on hand for guidance.
- Consider having your makeup done professionally. If you decide to do it yourself, have a free professional makeover before the wedding and ask for detailed instructions on how to achieve your desired look.
- Choose the most lightweight foundation possible while still getting the coverage you need because heavier foundations will look more obvious.
- Wear waterproof eye makeup so that tears of joy or the heat of summer don't make for streaks or smears.
- Use various shades of shadow to add definition to your eyes, then add a hit of liner for drama. Resist the temptation to go for bold lines, bright colors or glitter, unless that's your usual look.
- Curl lashes for length and definition but skip the false eyelashes. You don't want to risk having them peel off or rotate throughout the day.
- Stick to a soft and delicate tone for lipstick, as bold or dark colors might be overpowering. Remember to match the hues in your blush to those in your lipstick.
- Contour your face with blush or bronzer, even if it's not part of your daily routine. It will give your skin a healthy glow and subtly define your features.
- Pluck your eyebrows or have them waxed the day before your wedding. If you or a makeup artist play with them the morning of the wedding, they might appear red or blotchy in your pictures.
- Consider a lipstick that has staying power. All those kisses and sips of Champagne will leave you little time to reapply.
- Opt for a foundation that contains sunscreen if you plan to have an outdoor wedding.
