Wedding Makeup - Latest Fashion Beauty Tips

Wedding Makeup:

Every bride wants to look her very best on her wedding day. From hair and makeup to the gown and accessories, there are many details to consider when it comes to the big day. Many brides opt to hire a professional makeup artist to make them look radiant and glowing as they walk down the aisle.

Whether you choose to do your own or prefer to hire someone, there are many things to consider when it comes to wedding makeup. The time of day you chose for your ceremony can make a big difference in the bride’s appearance. Keeping the makeup simple is the best way to allow the bride’s beauty to shine through. Most wedding-makeup experts recommend a more natural look for the wedding day.

Many brides may opt for a facial to prepare to look their best on the big day. It is recommended that any facials be done at least 2 weeks prior to the ceremony. This will help avoid any breakouts on your wedding day. There are a few more things that should be done before the wedding day as you prepare your look.

Eyebrows should be shaped about a week before the big day. Choosing the right makeup and lipstick is important to the bride’s overall look so she can stay fresh for pictures as the day progresses. Once wedding makeup is applied, it’s important to let it set and don’t reapply throughout the day. Good makeup will last throughout the day and allow the bride to look natural.

You might choose waterproof mascara for the ceremony to avoid any misty-eyed mishaps. Stay out of the sun prior to the ceremony to avoid an unhealthy look and you should be all set for your big day. From the ceremony to the reception, it’s easy to keep the bride looking fresh and radiant by applying simple and natural looking makeup.

Did you know the time you are getting married should dictate how your makeup is applied? The different types of lighting throughout the day should determine your makeup style. Of course if the ceremony and reception are at two different times, you can alter your makeup in between.

Morning Wedding And Makeup:

The light is at it’s softest level in the morning so you want to go with a natural makeup. Choose a lightweight foundation or a tinted moisturizer. Anything heavy or extremely matte will look very artificial in the morning light, so a light hand is essential for the morning bridal look. Choose soft blushes, natural eye makeup shades and a muted lipstick. If you want to play up the drama of your eyes, individual false lashes are a great way to go.

Afternoon Wedding And Makeup:

Afternoon light is much has her than morning light, so you can be a bit more strong in your color choices. You can use a semi-matte foundation and your skin will still look natural. Eye makeup can be a little more dramatic in the morning, but still be in the natural tones. Brown eyeliner, taupe shadows and a black-brown mascara will create a beautiful look for an afternoon bride. A half-set of lashes can really enhance your eyes.

Evening Wedding And Makeup:

Evening weddings can be all about the drama, or you can add more makeup if your reception is in the evening. Smoky eyes can look very dramatic, but make sure you choose flattering colors (not just gray and black). You can wear a very matte foundation and powder and it will still look like skin and that might be a good idea if you are planning on doing a lot of dancing! Bright lips can also be very pretty, but you will be kissing a lot of guests, the groom plus hopefully enjoying the food, so it might be a waste. You can add a full set of dramatic lashes to give your eyes the extra oomph you are looking for.

No matter what time of day you are getting married, make sure you choose colors to suit your coloring, highlight your eyes and that you feel comfortable in. Every bride is a beautiful bride.
