Every bride wants to look her best on her much-anticipated wedding day. By taking special care to ensure that your makeup is a step above the ordinary, you can ensure that you are the glowing bride you have always dreamed of being. When it comes time to prepare your wedding makeup, don’t lose sleep over the process of makeup application, but instead consider some simple wedding beauty standards to create a take-your-breath-away wedding look.
Select a Copy-Worthy Look
Don’t know what you want to look like on your wedding day? Spend some time prior to the big event pursuing your favorite magazines and find a face worth mimicking. Clip your favorite pic and use it as a reference when you plan your look.
Seek Professional Help
Don’t go it alone. There is no better day to pamper yourself to style treatment than your wedding day. Pick a local salon and have a professional go to town on your face, transforming you into a ravaging beauty that will light up the aisle.
Experiment with Lip Tints
To ensure that you have the perfect pucker, try an assortment of different lip colors prior to your wedding day. Look for an all-day wear lip tint or other long-lasting pigment to ensure that your lips stay perfectly polished from the moment you first apply the hue to the last reception dance.
Don’t Overdo It
Just because it’s your wedding day doesn’t mean you have to cake up on the makeup. When it comes to wedding makeup, less is often more. Your groom picked you because of your effervescence and natural beauty–don’t hide it.
Pick the Proper Base
Make certain that your base matches your natural complexion. All eyes will be on you as you head down the aisle; you don’t want the eager wedding guests to see streaks or lines. The Knot recommends that brides to be pick their foundation in the daylight to ensure their perception of the match is correct.
Even if you are sure that you won’t shed a tear on your special day, you should still opt for waterproof makeup brands. From sweat to rain, anything liquid could wreak havoc on your look if you don’t take precautions. Play it safe with waterproof to ensure that you look ravishing no matter what moisture may try to wreck the look.
