What can be as important as a wedding dress for brides? The perfect makeup of course, oh yes and the groom right after!
When planning a wedding this must be at the top of the list along with all of the bride’s accessories. I strongly recommend that you get a very good professional for this task. Your makeup can enhance your beauty and make you look incredible.
If you want an impeccable photo album, a professional is necessary as they should know the right makeup tones and brands that will make your skin flawless. If you have a wedding planner see if she/he can make a good referral for your makeup artist. If you’re planning the wedding yourself, research for the best names in your town and make an appointment to talk to him/her personally. Ask for their references and discuss a perfect makeup look for you.
Now if your budget is small and you’ll be applying your own makeup, I suggest you practice your look over and over beforehand. Choose the right makeup tones picking a romantic and fresh makeup look if your theme match’s that.
Tips to do yourself:
Before applying your makeup, make sure your skin is clean and moisturized – then depending on your skin apply a good primer and/or foundation.
Using eye shadows that will match your dress and bouquet is always a great idea, for example if your dress is white but your bouquet or dress detail is lilac – pick a cream based eye shadow in pearl/white/light pink depending on your skin tone and smoke it with a light lilac matte tone and a little bit of 1 shade lighter lilac shimmer.
A good mascara and eyeliner can make or break this look so make sure they’re waterproof and long lasting and applied perfectly.
For your cheeks and lips keep it more natural with a little bit of light pink blush (again depending on your skin tone) over your cheek bones and a nice gloss of the same shade.
Whatever makeup look you’re going for, whether you are applying it yourself or hiring a professional – I wish you look the best this day. It’s your day and you deserve to be gorgeous and the center of attention.
