Say “I do” with your most glamorous self
There are so many things to organise for your wedding and a list as long as your arm is quickly forming. It will be one of the most photographed days of your life, so here are some expert tips to make sure you look picture perfect.
Find a good artist – Not only will they help you choose a look that suits, they’ll have the knowledge of products and application to make certain your makeup lasts for hours, photographs beautifully and looks stunning in person. Always check out the artist’s portfolio of recent brides prior to booking.
Have a trial – Make sure you have a full makeup application done (including lashes if you desire) and wear it for the day. Take pictures in natural light and with flash to see how it photographs. Follow up with your makeup artist and let them know of any changes that need to be made.
Avoid makeup trends – These images will be cherished for a lifetime so try to avoid statement looks. Stick with classic shapes and neutral colours that suit your skin tone. Aim to be the most glamorous version of yourself. Consider the theme of the day and how you usually like to wear your makeup. More dramatic bridal looks can be a great choice too, such as a red lip and winged liner for a vintage wedding.
Skin prep is important – Start a good skin care regime at least three months prior to your wedding day. Know your skin type and use appropriate products. Perhaps consider a facial or even two. Also, wear sunscreen daily on your face, neck and chest to avoid pigmentation and suntan lines from developing.
Touch up – Have one of your bridesmaids carry blotting papers, powder compact and lipstick in her bag so you can freshen up your makeup.
