Natural wedding make-up is about as far away as possible from wearing cosmetics. Don’t let the words “natural” fool you – this type of make up is as near as your natural make up can be. You will find no glitter, no weird colours or anything that’s not part of your everyday make up. Natural make up is about subtle improving your facial features – think show instead of conceal, which are exactly what your natural make up should be.
There are plenty of reasons why natural wedding make up might be better for you. For one thing, there’s the fact that it’s so much easier to apply. No sharpening creams or eye lash glue. Just simple liquid and powder with a little sponge and you’re in business. It is, however, perhaps an extension of your own beauty, and your taste for your big day may mean that your natural makeup is different to everyone else’s, so here are some tips on what to wear:
So how do you know if your natural wedding makeup artist is the best version for you? Well, first of all, they will know your skin well enough to make any kind of colour work for you; they’ll know if your complexion is a little on the dry side, or if you have very sensitive skin. They will also be able to recommend products for your big day that will make your whole look come together. There is nothing worse than buying specialised products only for them not to work for your skin, so take your time when you’re making your big day preparations.
One of the most important things to keep in mind if you want to have a natural wedding makeup look is that, unlike your normal everyday make-up, you should really only use your best skincare products for your big day. For instance, you definitely won’t want to be putting eyeliner on your bottom eyelids or lipstick on your top lip, so keep these things tucked away in the back of your bag or in the drawer! And don’t be tempted to skip your moisturiser either; even your favourite lip pencils and mascara will not do your skin any good if they are not nourished. If you can, choose one brand or two of each product that you will be using on your big day, and then buy a high quality moisturiser to use as a night cream.
One great tip for natural wedding makeup is to keep your skin well hydrated! The biggest mistakes that brides make is that they neglect to drink enough water on the wedding day, and this is a big mistake. As well as helping your skin to retain hydration, drinking plenty of water will also help to keep you healthy. Your hydration levels will also help to regulate your hormone levels and improve your immune system. You’ll look better and feel better too!
Another important ingredient in natural wedding makeup is a quality foundation. It is probably the most overlooked product, but a poor quality foundation can really turn your natural look into a horror show. You need a good foundation with at least a SPF15 and you need it right shade base. Too many brides start applying foundation and end up with too heavy or dark looking make up, and they often cover their faces in white or yellow. If you want to stay looking natural all day long, it is worth investing in a quality foundation.
