Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos
With your wedding just around the corner, you need to get everything prepared. You’ve found the dress, booked the venue and invited all the guests and now it’s time to take care of wedding beauty. Bridal makeup is just as essential as the rest of the wedding elements and every bride should be perfect on her big day; especially if she wants mesmerizing wedding photos. Thus, here are several tips for your flawless makeup and wedding photos.
Primer is essential
Firstly, by applying it you can have perfect makeup with little products. Secondly, it will help your makeup last throughout the whole wedding. Primer’s purpose is to smoothen your face, no matter how rough it is and it will help the rest of the makeup adhere better and blend in perfectly. Everything looks better with a primer and you will avoid having shiny areas on your face on your wedding photos and you won’t have to rush to the bathroom to fix your makeup every now and then.
Use a concealer
Since planning a wedding takes time and can be stressful, you probably won’t get too much sleep. This will result in dark circles under your eyes that need to go away on your big day. That’s why you should rely on a concealer. However, you should avoid using concealer five shades lighter than the rest of the makeup and your skin tone. Remember, less is more so spread it out evenly and modestly so you don’t end up with white circles under your eyes.
Emphasize your eyes
Don’t forget to make the eye makeup a bit darker, because you need to compensate for the whiteness of your dress and accessories. Also, pay attention to your lashes. Most women have never worn fake eyelashes but on your big day you can try them out. However, you need to be careful and rely on a professional to apply them; otherwise they could be your worst nightmare. You can also use individual eyelashes which can make your lashes more rich and natural. Nevertheless, you should emphasize your eyes, since they can get lost in the photos; but this way you will look beautiful in all of them.
Don’t forget your lips
Since your whole bridal look is rather white and light, you shouldn’t ignore your lips. They will need some colour as well in order to avoid looking too pale. You can opt for your favourite lipsticks or lip glosses in complementary colours, or rely on good old chapstick. If you leave your lips bare and dry, cracks will show up on camera and that could ruin your whole look.
Find a good photographer
To look good in your wedding photos you will also need a good photographer. Depending on your budget, you can hire a professional or ask a friend to take photos and videos. However, rely on friends only if they know what they’re doing and if that’s their passion. Otherwise the photos might not be as satisfying. If you decide to hire a professional, you should even have a trial photo session. Wear your makeup and ask your photographer to snap a few photos so you can see how the makeup looks. Many professionals, like those from Perfect Moment Photography, will gladly have a trial with you in order to make sure you are completely stunning and satisfied.
Have a trial
Before applying the final makeup for your big day, make sure you have a trial with your makeup artist. Give them your ideas and desires and wear a white shirt so you can see how the makeup looks on a white outfit. Trials are essential, because you don’t want any mishaps on your wedding day and so you can know for sure what makeup look is the best for your wedding.
There you have it; the most essential tips for your bridal makeup. Follow these tips and there is no doubt that you will look stunning on your wedding day and in your photos.
