Time Of Day Affect Makeup Color Choices For Bride, Bridesmaids
Posted by ulrch on July 28th, 2018
Morning Bride(you can also check out our website on 3d mink eyelash extensions , which reviews and chose the best style of 3d mink eyelash to lengthen your lashes.)
If you're planning a morning wedding, your makeup look should appear soft and pretty to match the cool, soft morning light. Mornings are perfect for the natural girl, because it's the time of day when a bride should wear the least amount of makeup. If you are getting married inside, the photographer will be taking advantage of the natural light coming through windows rather than a lot of artificial light for the photographs.
Though a matte foundation is always perfect for photographs, a morning bride can choose to wear a foundation with a slight sheen or dewiness to it, because the light is so soft. Make sure that your skin is a nice, even tone.
If your skin tends to break out, I would not choose this time of day for your wedding, because you are going to want to wear as little foundation and concealer as possible due to the softer natural light.
Go light on the powder so your face retains its natural appearance. You want your skin to appear matte, but it does not take a lot of power to achieve this. Heavy powder can appear artificial, especially in the morning light.
Do not make bold eyeshadow color choices for your eyes if you are having a morning wedding. Choose warmer, soft shades that complement your eye color. This is the one time you will want to wear less eyeshadow because the lighting will accentuate any harsh colors or lack of blending. Make sure to definite your eyes really well at the lashes to help them stand out.(Check our website [olaylashes] for the full version of our all 100 styles of 3d mink lashes)
If you choose to wear eyeliner, make sure to keep it subtle and soft. You do not want anything too dark (no black) or too harsh (not too thick--keep it really close to the lashes) at this time of day.
Lip color should always be soft and natural -- nothing too bold at this time of day. If it is too bold, it will be all you see in the photos.
Everything will photograph darker than it appears to the eye, because the light is so soft, so go with the softer shade choices.
Bridesmaids' dresses should be in a soft color, and bridesmaids should also wear softer makeup shades.
If you're planning a wedding in the middle of the day, be aware that the midday sun can cast shadows on your ace, which can make a difference if you're taking outdoor photos. This is the harshest light to be photographed in. Since natural light is directly above you at this time, you'll want to follow these tips to make sure you are "picture perfect"
Do not wear foundation with a sheen or dewiness to it. If there is any sheen to the face, it will look too shiny and reflective in the photographs. This is a time when you will want to wear the least amount of foundation possible, because it will show the most. A lightweight foundation and a matte powder finish will photograph beautifully.
Make sure your blush has a more matte finish, too. If it has too much shimmer, it will look too shiny in the photos.
A creme blush is a great choice for this time of day. It will absorb into your skin and look more natural. Keep in mind that cremeblush does not well on oily skin -- stick with a powder blush if you fall into this category.
Due to the midday lighting, if your eye makeup is too dark, your eyes will look like two dark holes in your photographs. Your highlight shade is the most important shadow choice at this time of day. Use a highlight with shimmer (not frost) to open up the eyes. The light-reflective participles in the shimmer will help prevent the "black hole effect." Make sure that your midtone and/or contour shade has a matte finish -- you never want to use three shades with shimmer, because the eye will look too shiny in the photographs.
If you want to wear eyeliner, keep it as close to the lashline as possible. If it is too thick, it could darken the lid more then you want, creating the dreaded "black hole effect"
Long beautiful lashes really help define your eyes without depending on heavy eyeliner.
Since the sunlight grows stronger as midday approaches, every makeup line becomes more visible. Make sure to blend your foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and powder very well. At this time of day, there is no such thing as over blending.
Late Afternoon Bride
The golden light of late afternoon is the most beautiful light you can be photographed in. Late afternoon is when the sun is starting to set in the sky, creating a beautiful warm glow. Since the light is so beautiful and forgiving, you can add a little more drama to your makeup look. The light is growing softer and warmer, so you can wear more eyeshadow and have more shade options.
If your skin is less than perfect, late afternoon is a great time to get married. The light is softer and more forgiving, so you can use a little more foundation and concealer to cover your flaws, and your skin will appear completely natural looking in photographs. Don't forget to powder -- remember that matte skin always photographs better than shiny skin.
As evening comes, your photographer will have to use a flash, so make sure you add color to your face. A flash shoots a bright burst of light at your face, which can make you appear washed out. Even if you do not normally wear blush on a daily basis, you need to wear at least a little color on your cheeks.
It's fine for your blush to have shimmer in it, because it will look beautiful in this light, thought it is also perfectly fine if you want to use a shade that is matte.
You can make richer color choices because of the forgiving lighting. Feel free to apply more dramatic eyeshadow shades.
A shimmery (not frosted) eyeshadow will look beautiful at this time of day. Make sure that your midtone and/or contour shade has a matte finish. You never want to use three shades with shimmer, because the eye will look too shiny in photographs.
Want to add a little more glamour? Try false mink lashes. This is the perfect time of day for this beauty trick, and lashes help define your eyes better than anything else you could do.
Later afternoon brides get the green light to wear a richer lip color. The light allows you to wear richer colors, since they won't show up in photos as too intense.
An evening wedding allows you to go for a more dramatic makeup look. You can play with color and wear more makeup than at any other time and still photograph beautifully. This is the time of day for the bride who wants to be a glamour queen. Remember that every photograph will be taken with a flash, which definitely makes a difference in your choices
If you have less than perfect skin, this is a great time for you. You can wear more foundation and powder and still look natural.
Make sure to bronze generously to give your skin a glow. One that that helps is "sculpting" your face, because it will add color so the flash will not wash your skin out, and it adds dimension. Dimension is important because the flash can also flatten everything out in a photograph.
Everything should be more defined -- from your lips to your eyes to your cheekbones -- because the camera's flash can wash you. Defined does not necessarily mean darker. You may just need a little color in your cheek. Make sure to give your lips a nice defined edge by lining.
Shimmery eyeshadow will photograph well for evening, but you should wear absolutely no frosted shadows for this time of night. Frosted eyeshadow will look too shiny in photos especially when a flash is used! A shimmery shadow always looks soft and pretty. Make sure that at least one of your three shades of shadow is matte. You never want all three shades to shimmer, because the eye will look too shiny in your photos.
In my opinion, false mink lashes are a must for a nighttime wedding, because they help define the eyes really well. Just remember that every picture will be taken with a flash, and the more definition you have at your lashes the better you will photograph.
Make sure you have lip color and powder on at all times.(more 3d mink eyelashes related products, visit http://www.olaylashes.com)
