Bridal Makeup Tips
Brides must look fabulous but also natural for the
most important day in their lives but remain true to themselves;
otherwise they will look like a stranger in their own wedding photos...
So true and something you must take in mind if you are preparing your
own wedding with cherished attention in each and every detail, but you
have forgotten how important emphasizing the care of your skin and the
right makeup for your face can be.
A corrective, subtle makeup that enhances your best features and makes
you naturally radiant and beautiful is probably the best because the
first thing people will notice alongside your gown on your wedding day
is how stunning and radiant you look all overall, not exactly just the
makeup itself. But first, start preparing your skin with some months in
anticipation to your wedding. Program a regular series of weekly facials
to get all the impurities out, and drink two glasses of water every day
immediately after waking up in addition to the 8 daily glasses
suggested, even if your skin condition is good. Along with bridal makeup
an efficient skin hydration is important because the accumulative stress
of all those months getting ready for the event may be reflected on your
face THAT day when you want you donít want is to look tired or withered.
Have your eyebrows trimmed one day before your wedding and sleep well,
even a few more hours than usual, if you can! Nothing helps your skin
more than relaxing and sleep. In the morning of the big day, make sure
your skin is well moisturized about 10 minutes after having your hair
done and before applying your makeup and before applying foundation;
apply a transparent gel or "primer" to form a barrier between your skin
and the makeup. This film industry trick keeps makeup out of your pores
and make it stays longer on while keeping colors true for hours, but use
extreme care with the foundation considering the environment in which
the photographs will bet taken.
When defining your eyes always aim for a natural look shaping eyes
softly with an eyeliner or smudge able powder liner that works best.
Avoid harsh lines that look anti-natural. Curl your lashes gently by
holding the curler against dry lashes for five seconds, then apply 2 or
3 layers of water proof mascara and choose your eye shadow carefully
avoiding trendy colors such as blue, sometimes fashionable in the date
of the event but mostly looking outdated when people look at the photos
in the future.
In bridal makeup, bright and neon colors must be avoided... they simply
scream out of photos, but do not go to the opposite side. The bright day
of your wedding it is not proper to use gray. All the effort put in to
making your skin look radiant will go to the trashcan because gray makes
skin look ashy. The best bet for your makeup in the big day is to choose
a neutral or true color.
Emphasize and make the most of your lips, but once again, choose a
natural color avoiding those colors that too dark, especially dark red
or black although sounds bizarre, but either too pale colors in your
lips that will fade into your dress. To get the best results that last,
brush your lipstick on and add a small amount of gloss, applied to the
center of your bottom lip as a special bridal makeup glow.
Important! Keep a balance between your lips and your eyes, have you seen
those funny bridal pics with the bride with a lipstick so pale that
seems she has no mouth? Also, if you love tan leave it for your
honeymoon. Tanning looks artificial, and hardly matches any bridal
makeup chart and makes you look harsh in photos.
To conclude, your beauty routine make a quick check of your face and
powder before you leave for the ceremony. If you can have your bridal
makeup professionally applied, go for it and save stress. Besides, the
difference in front of the camera will be startling, speaking good of
you for the years to come.
