3 Tips for Choosing Wedding Makeup for Your Big Day

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! There are so many decisions to make when it comes to a wedding that planning one can take months, often years! However, when you finally do arrive at the big day, you don’t want to look like planning the wedding took years off your life. Instead, you want to look attractive and feeling your best. If your wedding is coming up and you are unsure of your wedding makeup skills, we have a few tips that can help ensure your wedding makeup is perfect for your wedding day.

1. Practice with a Professional. If you have never hired a makeup professional, now is the time! More importantly however, is to have your makeup artist do a trial run before the wedding so you’ll be able to decide the look you want and see exactly how it will look on your wedding day. Additionally, a test run will allow you to make sure you don’t have any allergic reactions to the makeup being used.

2. Prime and Prep. While wedding makeup professionals can work makeup wonders on brides and wedding parties, results will be the best if you prepare your skin for your wedding makeup several months before the wedding. Stay properly hydrated, practice diligent recommended skin care, and avoid picking at any pimples that might pop up. Quality makeup primer on the actual day is an absolute must!

3. Layers. When you have an all-day event like a wedding, the secret to getting your makeup to stay put is by applying thin and even layers of it — all of it. Carefully layering everything from foundation to lipstick gives your wedding makeup great staying power.
