Bridal Makeup Needs To Be Durable
Bridal makeup is one of the many decisions that a bride must make before her big day. Natural, bold, vintage, classic, glamorous, boho, edgy – there are many different looks to choose from, but how do you choose? like most wedding-related decisions, there isn’t one correct answer.
As a general rule, you’ll want to wear more makeup than you normally do.
Sweat, tears, and hugs are all hard on your makeup, so you’ll want to make sure you start off by wearing enough.
This will also emphasize your features in photos and ensure that your bridal beauty will shine through even in bad lighting and during ugly cries.
The thing to remember is your makeup has to look beautiful close up, it needs to look great at a distance. It has to look flawless in real life and in a photo.
That in it's self takes skill with your makeup application plus the fact that your makeup needs to last from early morning on your wedding day until you leave your wedding in the wee hours. This could be 18 hours of durability needed.
Wedding Makeup Trial Tips
You've found your wedding dress , had that Cinderella moment with the perfect shoes , and spent hours scrolling through Instagram, Pintrest, and brides searching for just the right hairstyle.
With almost every aspect of your bridal ensemble checked off your to-do list , all there's left to do is find some makeup inspiration that pulls it all together.
There are a few ways you can jump start a bridal beauty routine , but one of the best ways to figure out what you like (and what you don't like) for your day-of look is to gather inspiration in the form of photos to show your beauty pro.
When looking for inspiration photos – Our biggest tip is to find photos of faces that have similar features and colouring as you. If you have dark hair and eyes, find a similar looking face.
True story – We once had a pale blonde and blue eyed bride produce a photo of Halle Berry and ask for the same makeup as what was in the photo.
It turned out that she really liked the eye shadow colour in the photos.
but she had not taken into account her own skintone, hair colour and eye colour.
Makeup Trials Are Important
When doing a wedding makeup trial, be sure to look at your test makeup in natural daylight so you can really see what it looks like.
Also, it’s a good idea to wear a white top and have your hair in a similar style to the one you’ll wear for your wedding.
Doing these things will allow you to get a better idea of how your makeup will look on the big day.
It will help you see if you want to make any adjustments.
Get Professional Opinions
You might also want to ask for your stylist's recommendations too.
We are pro's for a reason!
After you've decided on a preferred wedding makeup look, we recommend that you do a trial run.
This will make sure you're going to be happy with the final results.
If you are planning on having a spray tan on your wedding day, please have spray tan on your trial day!
Spray tans will add depth to your skin tone. What works on a paler complexion is usually not enough on darker skin tones.
Don't After all, weddings can be stressful enough without any major makeup disasters on the day.
