There will be hundreds of pictures taken and then seen again and again for generations to come. Especially when people are live streaming weddings now on social media channels. With such high stakes, you need to make sure that your makeup is perfect for the big day. To help you make the right decision, here are some amazing tips to help you out.
Make sure you don’t wait till your actual wedding day to see how the end result looks on you. You might be left disappointed and making such end moment changes or corrections will only bring stress on the big day.
Regardless if you are doing it yourself or you pick an artist to do it for you, make sure you try the complete look a few weeks in advance. This will help the makeup artist try different products to see which ones suit your skin best or things that you may be unaware of being allergic to and also experiment with a few trends or techniques. Trials will give you a chance to change the makeup or even the artist if you think it’s not the best fit for you. Carrying references of things you like or dislike are always helpful along with wearing a color similar to your bridal lehenga so you know the colors don’t clash.
After being completely satisfied and confident with your look, you are sure to breathe a sigh of relief and a major area of concern will be removed from the already large pile of things to be worried about on your special day.
The process of prepping your skin starts months before the wedding day. It is a way to make sure that your skin is at its absolute best when the big day arrives and you don’t have to make any changes to your pre-set makeup regimen.
Prepping includes products and facials that will help you gain radiant and glowing skin. However, start using these products and services months in advance and not on the day of your wedding as it not only fills your pores but may also create irritation or redness. Also, avoid waxing or other hair removal treatments close to the big day as they might have adverse effects. Make sure you steer away from using any products with SPF as they will not only make you look unnaturally white and cause flash photos of you to look highly flushed but will also cause your face to get oily or greasy very quickly.
A good prep routine will act as a shield between your skin and the heavy makeup that you will be wearing on the wedding day. Therefore, you should make sure you do not skip days and know what products work best for you.
The no-makeup look with emphasis on the eyes and lips has come to be an overall favorite for years now. It not only makes you look light but also prevents the makeup from overpowering the look.

Along with this, highlight your brow bone to give it that arch. This will make your look overall brighter. Use the highlighter and other shimmering products in a controlled manner as they often get messy after long periods of wearing them. Primers play a major role in covering any pigmentations and making the application process much smoother. They help the makeup last longer and also act as a barrier between the skin and the heavy layers of makeup. It is a must and should be applied at the beginning of the process on the face and eyelids both to give the look a better finish.
