You always want your makeup to be perfect. I mean who doesn’t? Not to mention if it’s your own wedding day. If you’re a bride in the making, then keep reading!
It’s regarded as one of the most important days of a woman’s life, the day when she is a bride. All eyes would be on you as you walk down the aisle and people will be taking photos nonstop – photos that would probably have you on all, if not majority of them.
Keep reading to know my bridal beauty tips for your wedding day.
- Try and try until you achieve the perfect look. A pre-wedding makeup trial should be done before the wedding to prevent any stressful or nasty surprises. If you have access to your wedding dress/gown, do a complete dress rehearsal along with the makeup trial for a fuss-free wedding day. As for the hairstyle, it’s not necessary to do it fully during the trial, but dress it in a similar way.
- If you get puffy eyes from lack of sleep the night before the wedding, let a spoon sit in the freezer for 2-5 minutes. Quickly apply the spoon on your eyelids for a while until the puffiness subsides.
- A wedding is usually an emotional event, so make sure to use waterproof mascara.
- If you wake up on your wedding day with new pimples on your face, don’t pop any of it or else it might just get worse. Hold ice over the area for about 30 seconds and then apply some toothpaste on it. The longer you repeat the process, the better. And don’t forget to use concealer.
- A make-up primer should be applied before foundation to help your makeup last all day and night.
- Apply your makeup in a room with natural light to make sure your foundation matches your skin tone.
- To avoid looking washed out in photos, apply a good blush on your cheeks and pop some highlighter on the areas of your face that usually catch light.
- False eyelashes will surely help your eyes make a statement and make your eyes look bolder and awake, especially in wide angle photography. If you’re not comfortable wearing falsies, go for two generous coats of black mascara for the same effect.
- Stick to natural shades when it comes to eyeshadows. Remember that your wedding photos are to last a lifetime, and your husband will look at your natural beauty for the rest of your lives, so stick a timeless, natural look. Apply some glimmer or white eyeshadow in the middle of your eyelids to make your eyes pop more in photos.
- Prepare a wedding day touch up kit. You’ll most likely end up eating, drinking, and hugging and kissing a lot of family and friends at your party, so keep a small makeup kit handy. Include lipstick, pressed powder and brush, a tiny mirror, bobby pins, and even safety pins in case of a wardrobe malfunction. You can’t be too prepared on the most important day of your life!
