Bridal make-up: tips and secrets for not making mistakes
The wedding day is a special and unforgettable day, and bridal make-up plays a crucial role in giving the bride a look that makes her feel beautiful and comfortable at all times. In this article I will offer you some valuable tips to avoid common mistakes and achieve a dreamy look for the big day.
My tips for your bridal make-up
- Test your make-up in advance: one of the first golden rules is to plan a bridal make-up test well in advance. This will give you the opportunity to experiment with styles and colours to find the perfect combination for your face and dress.
- Know your facial features: every face is unique. Know your features, face shape and the characteristics you wish to emphasise. This will help you work with your make-up artist to create a customised look.
- Choose quality products: use high-quality make-up products for a long-lasting, flawless result. Your make-up artist of choice can advise you on reliable brands.
- Pay attention to the face make-up: a flawless base is essential. Make sure your skin is well moisturised, use a primer and choose a base that suits your skin type.
- Highlight the eyes: the eyes are the centrepiece of bridal make-up. Well-defined eyeliner, eye shadows that match your eye colour and false eyelashes can make all the difference and make your eyes look magnetic.
- Perfect lips: for the lips, choose a colour that matches the dress and use a lip pencil to define the contour. Apply lipstick carefully and consider using a make-up fixer.
- Fix your make-up: especially if the wedding is outdoors or during the summer, make sure your make-up is waterproof to avoid smudging and to make it last all day.
- Avoid excess: a common mistake is going overboard with make-up. A natural, delicate look is often more suitable for a wedding.
- Add a touch of glow: a light illuminant can give your face a radiant look. Apply illuminant to the cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and the inner corner of the eyes.
