- People can get emotional on weddings and so can you. To prepare for this moment, it is a good idea to use waterproof mascara. It does not only last longer but can also withstand tears. If you are not comfortable with the feel or look of the waterproof mascara, you can apply one coat of the mascara you typically use at first, and then you can just follow it up with an application of a light coat of the waterproof mascara.
- So that you can be sure that your makeup will stay on throughout your wedding, use a good eye primer and a foundation.
- You must set the foundation by applying loose powder as it will take the shine out of your skin and it will give a soft finish on the foundation.
- Although you use a mixture of lip colors when you apply your makeup, it is best to bring along with you your favorite lipstick on the day of your wedding for touch-ups.
- Choose a somewhat bright lip color since brown or pale nude colors don’t look good in pictures, particularly if you are wearing white.
- When you put on your makeup make sure you will look at lot better but not different that your groom might not recognize you anymore. In short, do not experiment when it comes to your eye color, lip color, etc. Wear what is more appropriate for the occasion and not to surprise everyone with a somewhat more daring look.
- If your veil covers your entire face, never wear a lip gloss since it works like a magnet attracting the fabric, so your veil will stick to it the moment you wear it. There is no doubt that the lipstick and gloss on your lips will leave an unpleasant mark on your veil. Another thing to avoid aside from lip gloss is using foundation on the décolletage since it can also stain your wedding gown.
- Apply bronzing powder in the neck and chest areas so that your skin tone is balanced. This will not only make your skin look more luminous but will make the skin tone of your face look just the same as the skin tone of your body.
- Put some lovely shade on your cheeks to give you a face-lift look. Rosier hues are appropriate for deeper skin tones, while pink hues go well with fairer skin tones.
- You can define your eyebrows with the use of a shadow or pencil that has the same color as your hair.
- For deeper complexions, vanilla or light peach shade will be great to highlight the brow bone. For lighter skin, white shade will do just fine.
