Wedding Makeup is one of those things that no amount of glamour can take away from. The last thing you want on your big day is stressing about your makeup, especially if it’s staying fresh, still nice, and still as beautiful after a day as this. Natural wedding makeup is perfect for achieving flawless all-day coverage, blending beautifully with your natural beauty and accentuating gentle, neutral tones. If you’re having your makeup done by a professional, you can rest assured that professionals know how to bring out the best in your skin, giving you a luminous, flawless glow that will make you feel both radiate and look like a million bucks. But what if you don’t have the time or the money to have your makeup done?
Fortunately, there are many sources of affordable, high-quality makeup artists who can help you look like a million bucks without breaking the bank! Consider asking your friends and other brides you know who may be planning a wedding and have a good idea of the kind of makeup they’ll be using. If none of them has anything in mind (besides a beautiful, elegant dress), start your own thread by asking other brides what they would suggest for their makeup. You’ll find that most of the tips for the right colors, shades, and finishes are quite similar no matter who you ask. Just keep in mind that most brides still aren’t committed to having a flawless natural look during their wedding, so try a few ideas and stay away from things like using expensive primers or highlighters.
Another great option for wedding makeup is to choose a product line and run some trial runs with it. As your wedding day approaches, you may already feel a little overwhelmed with the variety of products that are available to you, so taking the time to test out one brand before you buy it could mean the difference between a wonderful product that will make your skin look flawless and a headache that won’t go away. One brand that has really expanded is Maybelline, and their trial run for their new Intense Moisturizing Butter Lip Liner is already promising reviews of both its benefits and its hassle-free application. After all, how difficult is it to apply a lip liner that stays on and doesn’t slide off? Another great trial run of makeup might be your favorite makeup artist’s, especially if he or she specializes in highlighting and color correction. Look for a makeup artist who offers a variety of products to practice on, since different skin tones and blemishes require different solutions to make sure you get the results you want.
One of the most popular trends in wedding makeup these days is to use “sauce” as an on-site touch up after using a blush or lip liner. Sauce works as a temporary concealer, because it can be applied to almost any skin tone and instantly lifts the eye area to create a glamorous glow. While it’s a great option to have around, keep in mind that your own blush or lip liner will probably end up looking much better once you’ve had time to apply another coat of cosmetics to bring out the color or shade of your choice.
A final option for on-site touch-ups is to use eye shadow or mascara to create a smoky look for your eyes. Eyeshadow applied to the eyelids creates dramatic dark shades that can be worn with a slightly smoky eye makeup artist makeup to create a gorgeous look that will definitely earn you many admirers. If you prefer to keep things subtle, a bit of eye liner is a great way to pull off this look without having to reapply the eyeshadow. Mascara can also be used in the same manner, except that you may wish to line the base of the eyes with a soft shade of mascara to really draw attention to the eyelashes. You may even wear false eyelashes to create the appearance of longer lashes.
For your red lips, the easiest way to create the look is to simply use a bit of white lipstick. You’ll want to apply it in a thin layer and you’ll want it to dry fairly quickly so that any excess lip liner doesn’t show through. When your lips are completely dried, you may want to apply a glossy blush which is a neutral shade so that it doesn’t stand out in comparison. Finish your look with a beautiful handbag and heels. By simply being creative with your bridal makeup, you’ll be able to create an eye-catching look that will make you feel like a princess on your day!
