So it is 24 weeks and 3 days until I get married to my soul mate,
and you know how it is for a beauty obsessed person, I have been trying to perfect my
So I thought I’d dedicate a post every Wednesday until my big day to
wedding makeup, and hopefully you will enjoy the posts!
Bridal makeup tips:
1- Consider your climate when you are getting married. If you are getting married
in somewhere hot, make sure you get oil free makeup, and keep
oil free blotting sheets available.
2- Consider applying a bit more makeup then usual. There is mixed opinions on this one.
Some people say that the camera will wash out your makeup,
so apply more, some people think differently, I think, when you practice your makeup,
always take a photo. That way you will know whether it is the right amount or not.
3 – Make sure to use a primer, you should already use one,
but really do make sure you do when you do your wedding makeup.
4 – Always apply makeup with sponge or brush. I usually apply my makeup with my fingers.
However, you will want to avoid touching your face as much as possible
when you do your wedding makeup.
5 – Put concealer on after your foundation. Again, this is something you
should really be doing anyway.
6 – Use different types of concealers if needed. You will need something
a little bit more peachy for under your eyes.
7 – Use an eye shadow primer, once again, this is something
you should be doing anyway, but it is vital for your wedding makeup.
8 – Try a cream blush for a more natural look.
9 – Smile when you apply your blush and apply to the apples of your cheeks.
10 – Use an eyebrow pencil. Always go a shade or two lighter than your natural
11 – Use eye enhancing techniques.
12 – Always use waterproof makeup.
13 – Put lip balm on your lips before applying anything else.
14 – Carry a few touch up items in a makeup bag.
15 – Play it safe, don’t do anything too drastic.
