Looking Your Best on Your Big Day: Makeup Tips

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Here are some tips for brides of all ages…

  1. Don’t overdo black or dark eyeliner unless your eyes are huge. Black liner makes your eyes look small.
  2. Don’t be afraid to put on a little extra blush. Brides wear white or cream, usually, and that washes you out.
  3. If you are getting married outside, adjust the amount of moisture you put on your face. You may not need any moisturizer. Consider using airbrush makeup which stays put all day.
  4. Nude Lips: Can make your lips disappear. A little color is always better, especially when you wear write or cream as a bride.
  5. You don’t have to be tan as a bride; pale can be beautiful with highlighting powder!
  6. Airbrush or traditional makeup: Your makeup artist should know which is better for you.
  7. Avoid loud, trendy colors in your wedding makeup or something totally new. (Think of what you are spending on your photos!)
  8. Get plenty of sleep the night before your wedding! You will need less makeup to cover under eye circles!
  9. Consider trying out a makeup artist for your engagement photos. It will be a good test for the big day and how you will look in photos.
  10. Find a makeup artist who makes you feel comfortable in your makeup. That is why a trial appointment is necessary: to discuss your look as a bride.
