It is your special day and no one can take the attention from you! The dress is set, the shoes are ready and all that you have to do is get the makeup set. But makeup for D-day has to be anything but ordinary.
There is a long list of do’s and don’ts to follow and you are all confused about how to go about it! So here’s a little guide on getting the makeup right for your wedding day.
Make Up Tips For Wedding
Go For Trials
Like your bridal gown, the makeup for the wedding cannot be perfected in just a day. Trial and error is the key here to don that perfect blush of a bride. So keep a few weeks, if not months in hand, to try out different makeup styles. Most makeup experts and professionals call you for a free trial, prior to the wedding day.
So approach the selected professionals that you like the best and ask them for a demo. Usually, it is free of cost, but even if you pay a token amount, it surely is worth it! You really don’t want to pull of some ugly eye shadow shades on your special day?
Choose Branded Products
Of all the days in your life, this is not the time to be miserly. Make sure that you choose the best quality products for this and let your makeup expert know the same. Your salon expert might suggest some brands, but if you have preferences like Chanel, Loreal, Mac, etc. or whatever suits your skin, do insist on sticking to it.
Update The Professional About Skin Problems
Most brides don’t do this, but it is best to update and let your makeup professional or artist know about your skin problems. Your wedding might be over in a day, but the honeymoon won’t and you certainly don’t want to be covered in acne or rashes post the ceremony. Also, if you have sensitive skin or are allergic to something, then it can be avoided.
Wedding Venue And Time
This is very important because the wedding makeup would be done to suit the theme of the wedding. If the wedding is outdoors like a beach wedding, then your makeup would be humidity proof. If you are getting married in the winter, then you need makeup that is moisturizing rather than oil-free.
Also, the time of the wedding is important. During the day, something that is natural and subtle works best. For the evening, you can also opt for a more stark combination.
Make sure that the makeup artist or experts sticks around for a few hours. If he or she is not available, then ask their assistant to wait by. If you sweat a lot or the wedding is outdoors, then makeup would wear off easily. A touch up is must in such occasions. Ask a friend or cousin to learn the touch up procedure, so they can help you with it. You can also opt for another look or makeup style for the reception.
And lastly, don’t forget to relax. No makeup would be complete without that gorgeous smile of yours!
