If you’ve never had any makeup done by a professional, be prepared for a wonderful experience that will make you look your absolute best on your wedding day. There’s some magic in makeup that can transform any woman’s look.
However, applying makeup can turn out to be disastrous. We’ve seen it all the time. Because we don’t want you to look like a clown on your wedding day, we are giving you a few tips to help you maintain great makeup all day long. It’s ok. You’ll thank us later.
Don’t apply any makeup for the first time on your wedding day. You need to call your makeup artist and have trials done several weeks before the wedding day. This gives you and your makeup artist time to know what works for your skin, facial features and style.
Keep your skin hydrated
You need great skin to look good with makeup so start drinking plenty of water every day and avoid the sun because it only dehydrates your skin further. Even if you don’t like applying makeup, use a moisturizer and lip balm to prevent dryness.
Avoid harsh treatments
If you’ve been using harsh skin treatments and chemicals that contain bleaching ingredients, now is the time to stop. These chemicals tend to interfere with the state of your skin causing issues when you start applying makeup.
Start experimenting with makeup
Wearing makeup weeks before your wedding day will help you to understand what reacts with your skin and avoid it. Remember that you know your skin better than anyone else. Not even a professional can recommend the best skin product for you if you don’t observe your skin.
Go for regular facials
If you don’t go for facials regularly, you need to start taking these skin treatments months leading up to the wedding. Don’t start going for facials a month to the wedding because it rarely helps. Avoid touching your facing all the time because you are only transferring germs that cause infections.
Before you begin to apply any makeup, start by applying a moisturizer at least 20 minutes before. This will help to reduce slide when you start doing the makeup. Wedding makeup should not be very bold so try not to apply too much foundation or face powder. Choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type.
The above makeup tips are just some basics that will help you to look amazing on your big day.
