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the event but mostly looking outdated when people look at the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.
