Your wedding is one of the most important days in your life. Looking perfect on your special day begins with expertly applying your makeup.
Waterproof Your Lashes
Waterproof mascara has staying power. Waterproof mascara will hold up under the pressure of a long day of happy emotions and tears. If you prefer to wear your regular mascara, apply it as normal, and then, apply a light coat of waterproof mascara to keep you looking amazing all day long. This tip will ensure you look your best and is one we picked up on a Francesca and Lily’s website BMK, two girls that provide wedding makeup in London.
When it comes to eyeliner, choose charcoal, mahogany or navy rather than brown or black. Brown and black eyeliner can look too severe at a wedding. This is especially true if your wedding is outdoor or earlier in the day.
Applying a highlighter can lighten up and brighten up your entire face. Apply the highlighter to your brow bone. Choose a white eye shadow if you have light skin. If you have warmer skin tones, choose a light peach or vanilla eye shadow.
Contouring Your Eyes
When contouring your eyes, avoid using too deep of a color because it can be a distraction. Instead, choose a color that is a shade or two darker than the color you use on your lids. Here are some contouring tips.
Defining Your Brows
A brow pencil can help you define your brows. When choosing a shade, choose one that matches the color of your hair.
Eye Drops Can Be Your Friend
If you are tired and have red eyes, use your favorite eye drops to help get rid of the red and brighten your eyes.
The correct shade of blush can give you an instant facelift. When choosing a blush color, choose a pink tone if you have fair skin. If you have darker skin, choose a rosy color.
Blemishes often occur when you are stressed. If a blemish appears right before your big day, keep your hands off your face. If the blemish is swollen or cannot easily be covered, ask your dermatologist for a cortisone injection. Cortisone will instantly shrink the pimple.
The Importance of Blending
Blend your makeup and blend it again. This is especially important around your eyes. You want your photographs to look amazing; so blend, blend, blend.
Natural light is the best choice for makeup application. If you are unable to apply your makeup in natural light, choose a room with super bright lighting. The best lights are halogens.
If someone else is applying your makeup, sit in a high bar stool or tall chair. This will help ensure the makeup artist can see your full face without any shadows.
Keep It Even
When you apply makeup, don’t forget about your chest and neck. Sweep a little bronzing powder on these areas to give it a sun kissed glow.
