Who wouldn’t like to look their best on their wedding day? Well, elegance isn’t a choice for the brides! They must get that angelic look by all means.
While the majority prefers to hire makeup artists, a few would rather apply DIY techniques to achieve a flawless wedding makeup. Whichever method you select, you should ensure that you get a stunning look!
However, you should be careful not to ruin your skin. In fact, you should only choose DIY if you’re confident about all the ingredients required for a perfect look.
To further simplify it for you, this article is listing all the factors that you should consider during your DIY makeup session.
Have your Blank Canvas Ready
There is nothing as astounding as a natural skin that radiates with beauty. Thus, you should be careful not to over-apply makeup during your wedding day.
Instead, you should adopt a consistent skincare routine 6 months before your big day. Ensure that you keep your skin hydrated, get sufficient sleep, and exfoliate regularly. This is the surest way to achieve healthy skin that will require minimal makeup to glow.
Know What You Want
If you choose DIY makeup techniques, you should be very clear about what you want. To achieve this, you should start reading beauty magazines several months ahead and then select a specific look that would be ideal for your wedding day.
Once you’ve identified your perfect look, you should learn various methods to achieve it. You can use avenues such as YouTube to get application tips.
Only Use Long-Lasting Makeup
You should research on various DIY makeup techniques that will result in long-lasting makeup. It’s basic knowledge that the bride may cry during the wedding. It would be unfair if all your makeup was going to be washed away by tears!
Always Use a Primer
Primers come in two variants- one that is meant for the eyes and the other for the face. While many people underestimate the importance of primers, you should never listen to any advice on skipping it, especially if you have oily skin.
Ensure a Facial Glow
Never allow anything to put you down on your wedding day. If you’ve had stressful times and you cannot achieve a natural glow, you have to fake it!
You’ll achieve this by using a glowy base mixed into your makeup foundation and highlighters on the conspicuous parts of your face (forehead, cheeks, and the nose).
Always Use a Concealer
Concealers will help you hide all skin’s imperfections. You should have at least 2 of them before your wedding day is due.
Set your Makeup
Setting your makeup ensures that it will not easily be washed away by tears or water. All you need is to add some translucent powder after you are done with your foundation and the concealer. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then remove it.
After you’ve applied your makeup, you should seal it by applying some setting spray.
Avoid Silicon-Based Products
During your wedding, you’re likely to have multiple photos shot, aren’t you? Well, any silicon-based product will spoil your photo moments, especially if flash is involved.
Never Be Afraid of Bold Colours
Whatever makes you glow, just go for it. It’s your big day after all. However, you should have somebody to advise you against overdoing the makeup.
