Since we are in the “Wedding Season” I thought it was appropriate to discuss Bridal Make Up. Because weddings are one of the most important events in a woman’s life, no matter her age, this topic becomes relevant. It is always a necessity to look good during any special occasion, this special day makes it especially true. Your make up should be long lasting and it also should have a classic look. That is not to say boring, but it should bring out your ethereal beauty. When you put your picures in your wedding album and come back years later, you really don’t want to have that “What was I thinking feeling”” – Would you? And so, with that in mind, here are some tips that will make your bridal look special and so fabulously chic!
WEDDING MAKE UP TIPS
1. Define Your Features
Make up should only enhance your best assets not hide you completly. For weddings, it’s better to go natural instead of bold. Choose neutral colors and a beautiful lipstick. If you want your lipstick to last longer, you line your lips with a lip pencil first. Then you use short feathering strokes to fill in your lips. You next step is to put on your lipstick as usual. Blot, lightly dust your lips with powder. Then you add your final coat of lipstick and then blot. Voila, your smile is kissable for hours.
2. Your Make Up Should Glow, Not Shine
A perfect balance always seals the deal. The first thing you need to do is consider your skin type. It is important that you choose the correct foundation for your skin type. You should use a matte fininish if you have oily skin and a dewy finish if your skin is dry. And it is a must that you use powder to set your foundation. If your skin is especially oily, you may need a product like an oil mattifier to help you tone your shine down.
3. Practice Makes Perfection
If you have your make up done by a professional, or you’re just doing it by yourself, it is always recommended that you need to “try on” you look first. That way, you will be know which look is right for you and you can test the durability of your perfect make up look. After all, how many times during the ceremony and reception have you seen a bride run out to adjust her make up?
4. Go For Long Lasting Make Up
You wouldn’t want your make up to look all unattractive after a few hours. Make sure that your skin is fully prepped. Applying a foundation rimer before putting on your foundation can definitely help make it last longer. Also, before you start with your make up, cleanse well and moisturize first. That way your “cavas” is completely ready.
5. Bring Your Emergency Kit With You
It’s better to be safe than sorry. Pack in a few basic essential items that might come in handy when the unexpected happens. Bring along some extra bobby pins, blotting papers and other emergency materials.
