Bridal Makeup Tips #2

Leave a Comment

You've got the hair sorted, the dress and the accessories, now its time to think about your makeup! 

If you read my previous blog post, you will already know some of the do's and don'ts when it comes to bridal makeup. As we are now well into wedding season, I have a few more tips to share to make sure you are extra ready for your special day...

1. Bare in mind your colour scheme. This is really important as you want your eyeshadow colour to compliment your dress and flowers. It only has to be subtle, if you are wearing purple don't go overloading your eyes with bright purple! Just a subtle lilac in your crease would work perfectly.

2. Take care of your skin. If you have a year until your wedding and think you have loads of time..think again! When it comes to your skin you need to act now. Makeup will cover small imperfections of course, but you want your skin to be as good as perfect when the day comes around so.. do your research! Go see a specialist who can tell you all about your skins needs, invest in a good moisturiser or go for regular facials, all of these things take time to show the benefits but when they do, it will all be worth it.

3. Think about the time of year. This is extremely important as it all makes a difference to the makeup you are going to wear. If you are having a summer wedding, you need to go for long wearing products that have the ultimate stay power and wont 'melt' off your face. If you are having a winter wedding or a wedding in the evening, you could think about having brightening makeup or using a highlighter because chances are it wont be too bright outside and you will want the extra glow. 

4. Groom your brows. Nicely groomed brows can make a big difference to your overall makeup look. Make sure they are waxed/plucked ready for your big day and maybe think about having them dyed if they are quite sparse as a tint can make them appear more full. If you are going to do any of these I fully recommend doing this a few days before your wedding so any redness or irritation has time to go down.

5. Wear a primer. I would recommend a primer in all seasons simply because you are going to be wearing your makeup from really early that morning to most likely really like that night. A primer is a base for your makeup that will keep it put for hours on end and create a more flawless finish. I would recommend something like Porefessional from Benefit available at Boots.
