You have dreamed and fantasised of your big day for a long time. Every single item has been planned down to the smallest detail. What about your own beautiful self? With the dress, accessories, hairstyle and makeup for wedding locked in, you are sure to be the most ravishing bride. Okay, here are some of top wedding makeup tips in mind and have the dream wedding you always wanted.
Top 1. More is good
Your wedding is the one time that we will encourage more makeup than you would usually apply. The camera tends to tone down the look.
Top 2. Stay oil-free
Remember to use oil-free products to prevent a shine from building up on your face. Better, keep oil-free blotting sheets handy. Never wipe, but gently blot if you feel your face getting oily.
Top 3. Primer for the eyes
Use a primer on your eyes before the eyeshadow. This will keep the shadow from smudging.
Top 4. The natural look
If you don’t want to look made up and prefer the natural look, we suggest a cream blush. It will make you look healthy and fresh. Dust some translucent powder over it for longer staying power.
Top 5. Eyebrows
Use aneyebrow pencil to fill in eyebrows. Select a colour one or two shades lighter than your natural colour.
Top 6. Getting the eyeshadow right
Start with darkest shade on the outside and get lighter as you move in. If you make a mistake, don’t use a wipe to repair it. You will remove the foundation and concealer too. Use an earbud with a little makeup remover.
Top 7. Fake it
No bride is complete without fake eyelashes. They’ll make your eyes look larger and more mesmerising. Use the full lash only if you’re going for the sexy look. For a more subtle play, use individual lashes. Curl your natural lashes and apply mascara before attaching the fake ones. After the glue has dried, curl these lashes and apply mascara again.
Top 8. No tears makeup
Waterproof your wedding – makeup, mascara and even the glue for the fake eyelashes.
Top 9. Soft lips
Make sure lips are not dry and flaky when you apply lipstick. Use a balm to soften them first. Outline your lips and use a pencil to fill them in. Then apply the coat of lipstick. This will keep the lipstick from disappearing faster. If your lips are thin, dab on a little shimmer to the middle of the lower lip to give a feeling of fullness.
Top 10. Your makeup kit
Carry a bag with makeup essentials with you – lipstick, oil-blotting sheets, translucent powder and earbuds to remove any makeup build-up in the corner of your eyes
