Bridal Makeup Tips

Bridal Makeup Tips

Weddings are one of the most photographed events of a person's life. Besides seating arrangements and music, there are so many other things you want to make sure are done perfectly on the big day. It's natural that some aspects of planning unexpectedly fall to the wayside, including your wedding day makeup.


Let's bring your bridal beauty look back to the forefront! Today we’re sharing some of our top tips for ensuring your makeup stays flawless throughout your big day:


Establish Your Vision With a Mood Board 

You should get familiar with Pinterest if you haven't already. A variety of makeup inspiration images can be compiled digitally on the platform. Using visuals helps you decide what and how you want to look on your big day! A professional makeup artist will also find it helpful if you work with one. You can better articulate what you want when you have a reference. 


Consider Your Wedding Season 

For her wedding, a bride should tailor her foundation selection to the environment she will be in. The foundation you choose should not look too dry or flat in winter. In the summer, you don't want anything that gets too shiny too quickly. Choose something long-lasting if your wedding takes place during the day and at night. 



Make Your Skin the Best It Can Be by Pampering It 

You should prepare your skin for your wedding day by hydrating and glowing it before applying makeup. It's time to start a skin-care routine if you haven't already! Luminous makeup looks best on healthy, glowing skin. It is important to get regular facials to prepare your skin for your wedding day, but avoid invasive facials as close as possible. 


The Key To Long-lasting Makeup? Primer 

Weddings are usually long days, so your makeup needs to last through every photo, dance, and toast. That's why primer is so important! Go for something that can work with a variety of water-based and cream products to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Anything that provides a sticky base is a great choice as well! 


A Makeup Trial Is A Good Idea 

A bridal trial is usually offered separately from the actual wedding day by most freelance makeup artists. It is so important for both you and the makeup artist to do the trial. On the day, you will feel confident and happy in the knowledge that what you are wearing is right for you and will last because you have tried different looks. And if you’re doing your own makeup, it helps to do a trial to get comfortable with the products and style you’re going for! 


Use Waterproof Makeup 

Make sure that all of your makeup products are waterproof! This will add an extra layer of protection to keep your makeup in place throughout the day. You can also use a beauty blender to blot your tears if you get a little weepy. Instead of leaving streaks or wiping the product away, this will press the product into the skin. 


Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute To Use Your Setting Spray 

When you're wearing your dream makeup, nothing compares to the mental and physical security of a setting spray. To keep each layer intact, use this throughout and after the makeup application process!
