Wedding Day Makeup Tips
Every bride deserves to look absolutely flawless on her wedding day. It’s a day where you get to glam up and be the best you that you can be. Wedding day makeup doesn’t have to be a chore. Even if you rarely wear makeup, indulge a little to enhance that sassy, vixen bride you were born to be.
Start with booking some time for facials and massages before the big day. Your complexion will thank you and your skin will be the perfect texture and base for makeup.
If you’re using a Pro do to your makeup, schedule a few trial runs to find the look you love the best. Even if you’re doing your own, it doesn’t hurt to play around with different styles. If you feel like a goddess when you’re done, you’ve found your look.
Make sure the products you’re using will last and stay put. Most everyday makeup isn’t cut out to endure a marathon, and that’s exactly what your wedding day is. Tears, sweat, laughter, selfie, repeat. A proper primer and even, thin layers are essential.
Remember that translucent powder is your friend and keep it handy. A luminous healthy shine is ethereal in photos, but under the strobe lights of the dance floor it can look like a hot mess. A sheer dusting across the t-zone helps keep you looking naturally radiant.
Waterproof masacara is non-negotiable. Enough said.
Finally, make sure you have enough time. Don’t rush your makeup on your wedding day. However long you think it will take, add another 30 minutes to be sure.
