10 Makeup Tips for Brides on Their Wedding Day

I know how important it is for a bride to look her best on her wedding day. With all the planning and preparations that go into the big day, makeup is often an afterthought. However, makeup can make a huge difference in how a bride feels and looks on her special day.

Here are 10 makeup tips for brides that every bridal makeup artist should know:

Prep your skin: The key to flawless makeup is good skin. Start prepping your skin weeks before your wedding by drinking lots of water, eating healthy and using a good skincare routine. This will ensure that your skin looks glowing and healthy on the day of the wedding.

Choose the right foundation: When choosing a foundation, make sure to get a shade that matches your skin tone perfectly. The right foundation will even out your skin tone and provide a flawless base for the rest of your makeup.

Highlight your features: A bridal makeup artist knows how to highlight your best features. Whether it's your cheekbones, eyes, or lips, the right highlighting technique will make you look radiant and beautiful.

Use waterproof makeup: Weddings are emotional events, and you don't want your makeup to run or smudge. Use waterproof makeup products to ensure that your makeup stays put all day.

Don't forget the brows: Brows frame the face and can make a huge difference in how your makeup looks. Make sure to get your brows shaped and filled in by a professional bridal makeup artist.

Use false lashes: False lashes can add drama to your eyes and make them look bigger and brighter. They also photograph well and will make your eyes pop in your wedding photos.

Stick to neutral shades: When it comes to bridal makeup, less is often more. Stick to neutral shades that will enhance your natural beauty and complement your wedding dress.

Use setting spray: After applying your makeup, use a setting spray to lock it in place. This will ensure that your makeup stays put all day and night.

Blot away shine: Use blotting paper or powder to remove any excess shine from your skin throughout the day. This will ensure that your skin looks matte and fresh in your wedding photos.

Touch-up throughout the day: Finally, make sure to bring touch-up products with you throughout the day. Lipstick, powder, and blotting paper are essential for keeping your makeup looking fresh and flawless.

In conclusion, as a bridal makeup artist, I know that the right makeup can make a huge difference in how a bride looks and feels on her wedding day. By following these 10 makeup tips, you'll be sure to look and feel your best on your special day.
