Your wedding day is going to be something you remember for the rest of your life. You want to be sure when you look back through wedding photos your make-up looks flawless and compliments your stunning dress.
Lucky for you, we have some cannot-be-missed tips and tricks to make sure you look like a goddess for your biggest day!
What Type of Makeup Should You Use?
Our biggest tip is to use waterproof makeup. One of our designers says, "you cannot underestimate how messy makeup can get over the day, and the last thing that needs makeup on it is your made-to-measure dream wedding dress!"
Using a primer and setter will also help keep your look perfect for much longer. Products such as cream eyeshadow and blush also set and stay on better than powders. If you have a spray tan for your big day, make sure you balance this with some bronzer on your nose, décolletage, and cheekbones.
Ask Your Wedding Planner
If you are using a wedding planner, their job is to make sure every aspect of your day goes smoothly. They will have no problem recommending a professional makeup artist they know is professional, dependable and will do a great job. They will have worked with them for other weddings and have first-hand experience before they put their own reputation on the line!
Have A Trial Run!
The worst thing you can do when preparing for your wedding is to leave things to the last minute and hope for the best. Whether you use a professional or choose to do your own makeup, having a trial run before the day is an absolutely essential step in planning a wedding.
If you are planning to have a spray tan before the day, be sure to schedule the makeup trial after so you can see how your makeup looks with the different skin tone. Make sure you take pictures so you can work out if you like the look in photos, and work out changes. The photos will be on display for a very long time, so you want your look to be picture perfect!
Be Comfortable With Your Wedding Day Look
If you are not used to wearing bright red lipstick, your wedding day might not be the right time to try and get used to it! We all want our wedding pictures to look flawless but not at the expense of feeling comfortable or being unrecognizable!
Your look should also balance - if you have dark, smoky eyes, opt for light-colored lipstick or gloss and vice versa, so it does not look overdone.
Must-Have Purse Products For The Bride!
To keep your look flawless throughout the day, make sure you have a few items in your purse, or have your bridesmaid's keep them handy for you! Your waterproof makeup and long-wear lipstick might need a few touch-ups before photos so keep your lipstick and blush in reach.
If you get a bit teary in special moments or the room is a little warm, blotting paper will help take the shine off without removing makeup with it. These small items won't take up much room but can make all the difference to perfect pictures!
