A wedding day is long. It is a tough obstacle to manage in terms of hydration, makeup, dressing, energy and more. You change venue multiple times, the weather is uncertain and emotions are running high. All of these things can create a disaster for your makeup as the evening continues. Here are six tips for long-lasting makeup for that special day.
Your skin must be in good condition for the big day, so start your face care weeks in advance. You can’t have dry skin on your wedding day as it will cause your makeup to crack and fall apart. Keep your skin moisturized and well hydrated leading up to your wedding day to ensure you are ready.
Some people skip the primer. Let me put it bluntly: If you skip the primer on your wedding day, you are a fool. A primer will seal your moisturizer and create an even and smooth area for you to apply makeup. It is the foundation for great success.
While we are talking about primer, let me quickly highlighted the most neglected and one of the most important areas. Eyeshadow. Please add a primer to your eyelids to ensure they glisten all day long.
On long days such as your wedding, a high-quality foundation is the one big difference between constant touch-ups and no touch-ups at all. Make the right choice.
The last thing you want is for your face to be shiny on every photo. Use loose powder to keep your flawless skin shine-free.
Setting spray is my secret final ingredient. It provides a light barrier and keeps everything in place. This is the final touch you need to ensure you are ready to battle the elements and emotions on your wedding day.
