Every woman aspires to be the most beautiful bride on her wedding day, and this naturally requires time and planning to make sure you appear absolutely flawless. Once you’ve chosen your dream wedding dress and matching accessories, select a makeup style that reflects your own personal sense of style. Keep in mind it’s going to be a long day and you need to plan accordingly. Rather than retouching your makeup every hour, choose products that will last from when you walk down the aisle right up until you wave farewell to your guests. Here are five helpful tips to ensure your makeup is a hit on your big day.
1) Select Flattering Shades
For women with neutral skin tones, choose pink or warm brown and cream or cool lilac. For cooler skin tones, excellent picks include plum, lilac or pink. And if you have a warm/olive skin tone, light pink, muted brown and dazzling beige are best. These color palettes are a good guideline for selecting lipstick, blushers, and eye shadows that will look most striking on you.
2) Long-lasting Lips
Make sure you do your research and selecting a lip color that will not fade throughout the day. Trusted brands such as Maybelline and Revlon will make sure you look picture perfect all day, plus it won’t smudge all over your groom’s face when you lean in for that special kiss.
3) All About Angles
During the wedding ceremony, the right side of your face is often visible to your guests when you’re standing at the altar. Make sure you’re not hiding your glowing face with sweeping hair or a distracting headpiece. Your guests and photographers want to see every emotion on your pretty face as you exchange vows with your groom.
4) Less Is More
Try to avoid choosing a makeup look that makes you unrecognizable. Although it may be tempting to follow all the latest dramatic make up trends, you should try and keep it simple. Your makeup style should complement your overall wedding look, not steal the show. A good rule of thumb is to accentuate either your lips or eyes for understated elegance.
5) Luscious Lashes
Finish off your bridal look with good quality waterproof mascara. There’s bound to be a few tears shed on your special day, and even if you’re not one to let your emotions overcome you, thick, creamy mascara will give you fuller and longer-looking lashes that will last all day long.
Whether your hiring a makeup artist or planning to do your own, make sure you consider these simple failproof makeup tips for a ravishing bridal look that will take everyone’s breath away.
