1. A little more goes a long way.
- Put a little more makeup on your wedding day than what you usually put everyday.
On your wedding day, you can scrap the line “less is more”. Why? On your big day, the camera will be following you everywhere you go and might blow you out in photos. This is why putting on a little more makeup will do you more good than harm. The camera, plus the lights, will do a number on your makeup. You don’t want to look washed out in your photos, ladies, so don’t be afraid to put on that full face.
2. Prep your face properly.
- Prep the face properly before applying any kind of makeup.
Again, your wedding day will be a day-long event and your makeup should be able to last until the last minute of the celebration. Hence, prepping your face before applying makeup is crucial to the lasting effect of your look. Use a face primer, an eyeshadow primer and a lip primer (you can’t be too safe on your wedding day!). Not only will primers help your makeup last longer, they’ll also smooth your face out by filling in fine lines and pores.
3. Use the appropriate concealers.
- Use the right concealer for the area you want to conceal.
Your skin and makeup should look flawless and photo-ready on your big day, which is why you need to use the right concealers for whatever it is that you want to hide. (We’ve all seen these trauma-inducing makeup blunders.) Aside from just covering, you must also color correct any uneven patches of skin. If you’re concealing a blemish or red spots, use a concealer with a yellow hint. If you’re covering dark under eye circles, use a concealer with a salmon peach hint.
4. Blush your apples.
- Blush the apples of your cheeks
Forget what others are saying about blush application for this moment. If you want your cheeks to have that natural flush look all day, you must apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks. Blushes with pink tones are always best for wedding makeup because they look more natural.
5. Go with lip stains instead.
- Lip stains tend to last longer on the lips.
The problem with using lipstick is that even though the pigment is great, you will find yourself frequently retouching your lips every so often. You’ll be kissing your soon-to-be husband a lot of times and you might also give some kisses to your friends and relatives, so using lipstick isn’t such a good idea. Instead, use a lip stain because it sticks to the lips better and stays longer too. Lip stains do not come off easily, so keep that in mind when the celebration is over and it’s just you and your now-husband. To bring your lip stain to life, add some lipstick and gloss on top.
6. Perfect eyebrows.
- Get your eyebrows on point
If there was ever a day that required perfect eyebrow game, this is it, girl! Shape and fill them in to the tee. Your eyebrows must be on point. This will frame your face and make you look even more polished in your photos. Further, avoid darker shades on your wedding day. You want a more natural look and dark shades are just too harsh.
7. Keep it waterproof.
- Use waterproof makeup on your wedding day.
Even if the weather forecasts tell you that it will be a sunny day on your big day, going waterproof with your makeup is the best way to go. Not only are you averting a potential makeup disaster when the sky starts to pour (heaven forbid that happen), you are also protecting your makeup from humidity and sweat (remember, you will be dancing a lot too!). And of course, the tears of joy shouldn’t ruin the mascara as well.
