It’s essential that you have a trial of makeup at least two weeks before the wedding. Test the makeup you’d like to wear during daytime in order to see whether it will look too flashy or just perfect. It’s imperative that you use high quality foundation so that it can stay and look flawless on your skin all day long. However, don’t think that applying thicker layers of foundation will make it last longer. It will only make you look unnatural and unflattering. Instead, create a perfect base for the foundation with a primer that is suitable for your skin tone. Later apply the foundation with a foundation brush by making circular strokes until the entire face is covered. Don’t forget to even the neckline, so that the colour of the face and neck are the same.
Feel free to apply a bit more blush than usual so that you don’t look washed up on photographs. What’s more, the best way to look perfect in photographs is to apply and blend three different shades. Use bronzing powder to brush the hollows of your cheeks. Next, accentuate the apples with a bright poppy colour, and finish with a light peachy pink shade over the previous two, and blend gently.
Avoid heavy eye makeup for the wedding day, and forget about your favourite smoky eye look. The best way to make your eyes “pop” is to use a really good mascara and apply false lashes. However, don’t go for false lashes if you’ve never tried them out before. They’re not easy to get used to, so you may feel uncomfortable wearing them. The last thing you need on your wedding day is that everybody thinks you’re winking at them.
Furthermore, if you want your eyes to look larger, a white liner applied on the bottom inside rims of the eyes will do the trick. Go for the natural shades of eyeshadow, especially if you opt for a bold shade of lipstick. Your face needs a balance of colour, so if one area is too emphasized another has to be toned down as much as possible.
When it comes to lips, besides the shade, the biggest dilemma can go around the formula of the lipstick. Should you wear a gloss or a matte lipstick? If you ask professionals they’ll say neither. In fact, wedding videography experts say that you should opt for a lipstick with satin finish so that your lips can look flawless in pictures. Matte lipsticks tend to leave the lips dry and cakey, while gloss doesn’t last long enough. Therefore, a satin finish lipstick will be hydrating enough and wear off evenly and naturally.
Don’t use the lipstick that looks too natural on your lips, because you will look washed up due to the white gown. In order to give the colour a lift, if you usually use pale lip colours, this time apply them as base and add rose or pink tones over it. Additionally, the wedding day is not the day you should experiment with makeup. Therefore, if you have never used a bold lipstick colour, you should not try it now.
