There's no need to blow the blank when it comes to looking glamorous on your special day! Who says you need a high dollar on-location makeup artist? Take the beautification into your own hands with a few of the quick ideas and reminders listed below.
Are you feeling a little nervous about that berry-tinted lip shade sliding around? How will you eat and drink without constant reapplication? Moreover, how will you kiss? Keep lips firmly in place by outlining in lip liner. Next, swipe on your favorite lipstick, blot with a tissue and carefully tap a loose transparent powder on top. You're all set! Bonus tip: for a brighter and bolder pout, apply concealer to your lips before applying lipstick. The lighter base will help its color to truly pop!
It's no secret that some types of makeup simply reflect better on camera than others. On your wedding day, you'll feel like you're surrounded by paparazzi; ensure that everyone is capturing more queen than sheen by sticking to matte finishes! Skip any of the illuminating foundations and light-handed on highlighters. If you're dedicated to wearing a shimmery eye-shadow, test it out on camera before the big day to see how flattering it appears.
A fierce set of brows will draw your entire look together, not to mention, capture all of your heartwarming expressions on this special day. If your brows are a bit sparse, you may want to consider microblading to fill them out. This procedure is semi-permanent and creates a natural look that fits your facial structure. If this is what you want, consider booking an appointment with a professional several weeks in advance to make sure you get it looking exactly right, and your brows have time to heal properly.
Look, sometimes getting everything prepped and prepared for a wedding can be a little stressful. Did butterflies in your stomach keep you from a good night's sleep? No worries! Target under-eye bags with a relaxing under-eye mask the morning of your wedding. Don't have any? Craft a spontaneous fix by popping two metal spoons into the freezer until cold; press them under your eyes for one minute to reduce swelling of the blood vessels.
Your look is nothing without good skin underneath! Be certain to get into a good habit of moisturizing daily and exfoliating weekly to ensure skin that's glowing, radiant, and ready to astonish. If you feel like your skin is struggling, invest in a moisturizing mask and make sure you are getting enough water and sleep every day.
You want your wedding photos to look perfect and stand the test of time, so use these makeup hacks to look your best. You should also make sure you practice your look a couple of times leading up to the actual day, so you don’t have to panic last minute.
