5 Things To Consider For Your Wedding Makeup
Planning for a wedding is both an exciting and exhausting process. This is especially true for the bride who gets to try out different wedding gowns, pick out her bridal party line up and compare a variety of floral arrangements. However, one of the most important things for a bride-to-be is making the right choice for her bridal makeup. The right wedding makeup pays off very well when it comes to glamorous wedding photos.
Everything else about your wedding could be perfect; the sun-kissed beach, the perfect sunset, the breath-taking décor or the lovely bridesmaid gowns but have you taken time to think about your wedding makeup? Bridal makeup adds a much needed magical effect to the wedding. Photos are more colourful and smiles are brighter with the right bridal makeup.
While some brides-to-be might be beauty queens in their own respect and prefer to do their own makeup, some may need the help of a professional makeup artist. It is important to note that bridal makeup is not only important for the bride-to-be but also her bridesmaids. Here are 5 things to consider for your wedding makeup.
Do Your Research
Get online and research on everything makeup to find out how to DIY (do it yourself) and what works best for you. Similarly, do proper research on your shortlisted makeup artists before signing them on.
Choose Your Makeup Brands
Find makeup brands that work with your skin and that will give you a long lasting effect that does not require a touch-up on your wedding day. Check out MAC, Estee Lauder, Sleek, Maybelline or Lancome for some of the best pro-longwear products.
Pre-Wedding Makeup Trial
A few weeks before the wedding, make sure to have your shortlisted makeup artists carry out a tutorial on you. This will help you pick the right shades and see what works best for your skin tone. Remember to wear a plain t-shirt matching your wedding gown colour to ensure you get the right comparison.
Natural Is Always Better
When selecting a theme for your wedding makeup it is better to go with a more natural look versus a plastered look. But remember that you need enough colour on you because you will most probably be wearing a white dress.
Cover Visible Spots
Although your face is the most important part of the wedding makeup routine, make sure to slightly touch up your neck, shoulders and chest especially, if you are wearing a low cut dress.
