Choose the Right Wedding Makeup for Your Big Day

All brides want to look beautiful on their wedding day. Having your wedding makeup give you the right look is just as important as wearing the perfect dress and having your hair done just right.

On this day, so many eyes will be on YOU. You will be photographed more on this day than on any other day in your life. It’s a day that you’ll remember forever. It’s a day on which your new husband will see you in a new light. You’ll be the center of attention. You want to look breath-taking!

Because you will be so busy, anxious, and probably a little nervous on your wedding day, it’s a good idea to let a professional handle the task of applying your wedding makeup. You might have those wedding day jitters and shaky hands to go along with them! A professional makeup artist will be able to apply your makeup for you while you sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered.

In addition, a professional makeup artist knows how to bring out your best features and hide your flaws. A professional will know what colors to use to best suit you, and what application techniques to use to really make you look the best you possibly can.

Be sure that your makeup artist knows what your wedding colors are and exactly what color your wedding dress is—whether it’s white, off white, cream, ivory, etc.

The makeup artist will need to know this so that he or she can plan accordingly when applying color to your face such as blush and eye shadow. A good professional makeup artist will know how to bring your colors together while complementing your skin tone and your features.

It is a good idea to start a skin care regimen a few months before your wedding. Now is the time to get your skin in good condition for the big day. Use quality cleanser, toner, and moisturizer every day and consider a weekly facial treatment.

Be sure to invest in good quality skincare products—your skin will thank you for it and your beautiful skin will be evident on your wedding day. Also, makeup tends to look more natural on skin that is well taken care of.

Don’t wait until a few days before the wedding to try new skin products or makeup. You might end up having an allergic reaction to a wedding makeup product, and you’ll want plenty of time to recover and find something that you can use and that is safe for your skin.

If you choose to do your wedding makeup yourself, make sure you do several “trial runs” before the wedding day. You’ll need to take the time to find what looks best on you. Do not try something new or over the top.

Keep the look natural with some depth of color. Use brushes and sponges when applying makeup, not your fingers. This will help make sure that you apply the makeup evenly and blend thoroughly.

It is a good idea to do several practice applications once you find what works for you so that you will have had some “run-throughs” before the wedding day.

Have fun and remember—this is the day when you should look the most beautiful you have ever looked! Relax, keep it simple and natural, and take care of your skin. You will be glowing and look stunning on your wedding day!
