Top 10 Bridal Makeup Tips You Must Know

It is true that your makeup on your wedding day will be handled by an expert, but you need to make sure that you do your homework before appointing a makeup artist. After all, you know what you want.

1. Match the makeup with your attire

Just take a look at your clothes as well as jewelry. Consult with your makeup artist beforehand about the looks which will go with the dress. Select the one which you want to do on the day. Do not go in for any last minute changes.

2. Choose the right foundation

Selecting the right foundation is very important as you don’t wish to look ghostly or darker than usual. The aim will be to choose a shade which properly matches your skin tone. Selecting a ton lighter than yours for your bridal makeup will create a wheatish effect on your face. Apply the foundation on other exposed parts of the skin like hands, neck, back as well as ears.

3. Use a highlighter

Use a quality highlighter instead of shimmer or glitter. The initial attempt should be to make your skin appear glowing. Highlight the bridge of the chin, the nose, the forehead and around the perimeter of the face.

4. Design your Vanity

The wedding is a really exciting time to shop for new products. Take your time in exploring various brands and diverse tools for applying makeup. Don’t be shy to take advice from your friends and experts. Shop for products that you are confident to use and indulge in some new shades of lipsticks and eyeshadow, just in case. Keep separate sets in your vanity for evening look and daytime look.

5. Check the weather

Having a wedding during summers, spring or the winter? Choose sheer and light makeup as these will be most appropriate when the weather is hot as well as humid. Another crucial factor to understand is the time. If you have the ceremonies during the day time, then keep makeup minimal and opt for a natural look. If you are going for night wedding, maintain the makeup thick and add more colors.

6. Choose the right lipstick

Choose a long-wearing lipstick for the D-day. You don’t wish to be applying it every single hour. Rather choose the right lipstick which stays for hours and does not require to

7. Use clean brushes

Whether you are applying the makeup yourself or a professional makeup artist is doing it, always use clean brushes and other applicators. You don’t wish to get infected by bacteria, right?

8. Eye makeup ready

Liquid and gel liners are both sturdy and provide an excellent finish. Pick the one you are more comfortable with as sometimes liquid liner can be very tricky to apply on the lower lid. To keep your eye makeup in a proper place, sweep a bit of translucent powder over it and under the eyes. This prevents the meltdown and raccoon eyes. The shimmer looks great but keeps it limited to only one part of the face. Either do a shimmery eye or shimmery lips.

9. Fake eyelashes

Want some false lashes?  Try them on several days before the wedding day to check if you are really comfortable with them. Also, use the dark colored lash glue so that it matches the skin tone.

10. Filling up the brows

Never use black color to fill in the brows. Use taupe shade or brown shade to fill up the brows. The right way to get a natural looking brow is to use powder instead of the pencils.
