Getting married is supposed to be the best time of your life, but it can quickly turn into something of an organizational nightmare without Wedding Makeup Tips & proper skincare prep. Every single bride deserves to look and feel gorgeous on her wedding day, but having this process is definitely a marathon and not a sprint race. To make this makeup process easier, we have created a list of all of the must-know makeup-related tips and tricks that every bride needs to know!
Skin Prep Should Start Early
If you haven’t been diligent about your skin-care routine, now’s the time to begin. Getting regular facials makes a big difference in your skin’s texture and helps you have the best base for makeup. You should schedule monthly treatments (at least three) that will illuminate and firm your complexion and hydrate your skin, leaving it glowy, beautiful, and makeup-ready. To prevent any last-minute irritation, you should skip any extractions the month before your big day.
Choose a Lipstick You Feel Comfortable In
The lip is very important, even though it is often overlooked. Every future bride should pick her own perfect shade, actually buy that lipstick and then try it out before the wedding.
Why? A lot of brides choose their eye look as the focal point of their makeup look, but the lipstick is actually the game-changer. During your wedding day, you are going to talk, kiss, sing and eat, and you need to find a lipstick that is going to be able to take all of that without the constant need for fixing and reapplying. Your wedding day should definitely not be the first time you try on your wedding lipstick; you need to take it for a trial ride.
The Night Before the Wedding Is Not the Time to Try New Products
You might feel tempted to treat your skin to new, high-end products the night before your wedding; we would sticking to your daily cleansing regime. New products are very likely to contain new ingredients that your skin is not used to, which could potentially irritate it and make some huge problems you don’t want to deal with on your wedding day. The best choice is to stick to your normal cleanser followed by a gentle night cream and do not complicate it.
Wear a Shirt in a Similar Color to Your Dress
Before you go to your wedding makeup trial in a beauty salon or a store (which every bride should do), you should make sure to wear a t-shirt in a similar color to your dress. This is going to allow you to see how the make-up looks against it and take a picture of yourself in daylight (with no flash) to see how it is actually going to look on your wedding day.
