5 Useful makeup tips before your wedding

Makeup is something amazing, you can for example transform, beautify, hide, conceal, cover and bring out whatever you want in your face. Makeup for your wedding is a very important part, its purpose is to make you look like a more beautiful version of yourself. Even if you never wear makeup I think every bride should use a little bit to enhance their beauty and to match the choice of the dress and hairstyle, also for the photos it does look a lot better, remember they’re photos you’ll be looking at for the rest of your life 🙂

Here are 5 great tips when  considering  your wedding makeup.

1, Hire a professional to do your makeup – You might be great at doing your own  makeup, but when your wedding day arrives, Its really nice to sit down and relax with perhaps a glass of champagne instead of being stressed and worrying your makeup is going to be perfect. Also a professional has the products to insure that your makeup lasts all day and night, she/he  also has the experience to know what will suit best with your hairstyle and dress for the big day. Make sure to book a consultation 1 month or closer to the wedding date to match the skin tone you will likely have at your wedding. If you have a certain makeup style in mind its great to bring along a picture for your makeup stylist.

2,Get your lashes tinted and brows tinted and shaped 1 week before your wedding – Doing this means you don’t need as much mascara on your wedding day, and especially important is to have nice eyebrows as they really frame your face. Its never a good idea to pluck your eyebrows on your wedding day as it might irritate the skin and make it red. If you find it hard to know what shape will suit you best, let a professional help you.

3, Try not to stress and keep hydrated – Lack of sleep and stress including not drinking enough water shows immediately on your skin. Its great if you can avoid this as much as you can before the wedding day.

4, Do a face peeling a couple of days before the wedding day – This will help the skin looking extra smooth and glowing. You can make your own peeling by mixing a nice olive or almond oil with sugar  and gently massage it over your face and neck.

5, Consider wearing fake lashes – I use false lashes on 99% of my brides and they have all been really happy with the result. It really makes your eyes “pop” and they’re great for photos, you can either go for the full strip ones or just a few individual ones. Definitely try it out at your makeup consultation.
