Do’s and Don’ts of Bridal Make-Up

By on January 14, 2015

To help you deal with the wedding day anxiety, we’ve gathered a list of several do’s and don’ts, when it comes to bridal make-up:

Do:

Arrange your trial make-up session at least three weeks before the big day. Experts also advise on having a test-run with the fake tan, if you intend on applying it on your wedding day – this will help the make-up artist see what your skin will look like tanned and chose the best color scheme to complement it.

Experiment with colors! The bridal make-up allows for brighter color scheme, as it needs to compensate for the whiteness of the dress. Also, bridal make-up tends to be very different from your normal everyday make-up in order to help you stand out.

There are several elements to your look and the first one is your skin. Make sure you have smooth and natural-looking skin. Accentuate your eyes with individual eyelashes, instead of a full strip – they look fuller and are far more subtle. You can also finish your look with a highlighter shade on the brow bone – this will make your eyes really stand out!

Don’t:

Be careful not to arrange your test trial in a place with fluorescent or unnatural lightning – it will make the color scheme and your face look differently. Also, if you have your make-up artist coming at your home, ensure it’s still light outside.

Stick with neutral colors. They look washed out in photos, so better chose a brighter color for your eyeshades and lip color. Don’t be afraid to experiment with red or pink! Plums and roses are indeed a classic choice for brides, as they look stylish, while being eye-catching at the same time.

Overdo your eyes. You can define them by applying colour in the crease, but don’t use too much eyeliner or too dark shade.

    Very good tips. I think makeup might be one of the least important things on the wedding day list, however I do feel that it does have a lot to do with how your look and how your magical day is going to go.

    The trial makeup session is a great idea! I am going to pass this along to a friend that is getting married in the fall.
