Bridal Beauty: Makeup Tips for Your Special Day

To create a flawless and impeccable complexion for a bride, professional makeup artists prepare the bride’s skin before applying makeup. They also use high quality and long-lasting supplies, taking into consideration that the brides will have a day full of emotions and pictures.

Here are some tips on how to prepare your skin, and a list of must-have items to have on hand to create your wedding day look:

Brows. Go to a professional to get them shaped before your wedding day. You can fill them out and give them a little definition with a matte taupe tone brow powder or pencil.

Exfoliate. Be sure to exfoliate your face and neck a day before or on the morning of your wedding. This process will eliminate any dead skin cells that may cause flakiness which could make the foundation or concealer look cakey. If you are having some skin issues, consult an esthetician on what treatments to follow months prior to the big day.

Moisturize. Use moisturizer on your face and neck. Even if you have combination-to-oily skin, don’t skip this step! An oil-free moisturizer will tell your skin to stop producing excess oils. If you have dry skin, this is step is necessary so your skin is not stealing the hydration from your foundation.

Prime. Eye and skin primers are very important for wedding day makeup. They serve as a magnet for your eyeshadows and foundation. Primer will help you avoid any creasing or melting on hot days.

Conceal. If you have dark under-eye circles , get a salmon tone concealer to cancel out the blue-tones. If you have blemishes, get a concealer that is of the same shade as your skin tone to spot-treat those areas. Avoid getting a lighter shade for this process since it will only highlight where you have these issues.

Highlight. This is what will give you that most wanted bridal glow! Apply highlighter above your cheekbones, inside the corners of your eyes, and above your lip’s cupid bow.

Waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara. Even if you don’t think you’ll cry, you still need to be ready to deal with the sweat! This is not the day for smudging, running eyeliner, or flaky mascara.

Take it with you to blot the oils on the forehead, nose, and chin throughout the day when necessary.

Make sure you practice, practice, practice before the big day! Give yourself at least an hour to get your desired results.
