Many brides dream of walking down the aisle with a perfect make-up look on their wedding day. However, most people are not makeup masters and would rather save money by doing their own makeup for this special occasion. Luckily, there is an easy way to do your own bridal makeup that will still allow you to be glamorous as ever! This blog post provides helpful tips for achieving beauty without going into deep debt or hiring someone else who doesn’t know how you want your face done– all while saving money in the process!
Explore for Your Looks
To get the best look, you should do your research beforehand. Search for inspiration and ideas on social media or Pinterest to find what works with both your style as well as that of the dress. Consult bridal makeup artists’ profiles on Delegate to see different styles in order to decide which would work best for you. Seeing various looks on other wedding-goers can also provide some helpful insight into deciding how much drama is required for a perfect day’s worth of glamour!
Perfection comes with Practice
The best way to get an idea of what you want your hair and makeup will be on the day is by practicing. If it’s done early enough, this can help make sure that everything goes as planned for when it’s time in just a few weeks! A lot of brides have their gown picked out before they start thinking about other aspects such as hairstyle or makeup; which means if there are any changes desired later on due to personal preference or facial shape then the chance could be missed completely. This also lets you see how different brands work with your skin tone and eye color so that you know who should do your look come wedding day.
Tutorials Can Save You
If you are just beginning to apply your makeup, watching tutorials will be vital. Tutorials can show the basic steps that need to be followed (from skin prep and primer), as well as offer helpful techniques for application. It’s important not only to watch what a technique should look like but also how it is used in practice so mistakes won’t happen when applying it on oneself!
It’s important to test your makeup before the big day so you know how it will look and last throughout the ceremony, as well as for a few hours after in case there are any cocktails or snacks. You can wear this on yourself while practicing what your final look should be; then when all is said and done (or during!), use blotting papers/powder to brush off excess oil that may have been caused by sweating from dancing at an event!
Try-on A Face Powder
The perfect way to keep your makeup looking fresh from the start of your wedding day until you take it off is by applying good face powder. A quality foundation lasts longer and helps maintain its natural look while reducing tackiness or excess shine that can come up after application. If you plan on wearing liquid foundation during your big day it’s best to apply at least one layer before any other type of makeup as this will prevent running as well help absorb oils which could make the rest of our workup go south!
Begin with your Eyes
Why start with your eyes? When you begin by applying eye makeup, it ensures that the delicate skin of your eyelids and the bone above them is protected from any streaks or smudges. It also provides a safe place to make mistakes without ruining anything else in this step-by-step beauty routine—especially if you’re not much of an artist!
Less (In This Case) Is More
Unless you’re absolutely set on a more full-bodied makeup, It is recommendable going for something lighter. This will make the application much easier while also looking better in pictures! Two common misconceptions often lead brides to wear too much of their face paint—thinking it should look like stage makeup because they’ll be under lights and in front of a crowd or thinking that heavier coverage is needed when cameras are pointed at them.
Maintain a Healthy Skincare Regimen
Your makeup will only look as good as the skin underneath it. If you aren’t taking care of your skin, the makeup will not sit on your face properly and this can cause breakouts during a stressful time like wedding planning! The healthier your skin is before the big day, however, fewer products are needed to do up our features because they’ll be reflected naturally in an imperfect way that’s perfect for any couple.
Reduce your Stress Levels to a Minimum
Stress will make your skin look dull and blotchy, so it’s important to be relaxed before the big day. You should avoid stressful situations as much as possible for at least a week ahead of time or engage in some calming activities like meditation. For makeup application, try taking slow breaths from deep within you while applying foundation or lipstick- this can help keep things calm on the surface!
Ask a Friend for Assistance if Necessary
Let your friend or someone with expertise in makeup help you out! They can make choosing the right products much easier- depending on your skin type, color, and desired look. Having a second eye is always helpful when it comes to picking foundations, so let them be there for moral support during this process. If they are able, ask if they’ll come over before the wedding day to walk through step by step of applying the products – maybe even lending an extra hand (if needed)!
