Bridal Beauty: Make up tips


  1. Choose mascara that is waterproof.  If you don’t like the feel, use one coat of regular and put a coat of waterproof over it.
  2. Use a charcoal, navy or mahogany is best options for eyeliner.   Black or brown may look to severe.
  3. Use a white shadow as a highlighter near your brows if you have light skin.  For darker complexions, use a light peach or vanilla.
  4. If your eyes look red or tired, use some eye drops.  Stick with a brand you have used before to avoid irritation.
  5. Use some blush to give your cheeks a pop of color.
  6. If you have a blemish or a breakout before the wedding, keep your hands away from your face.  The spot will heal better if you leave it alone.
  7. Make sure you blend your makeup well since the camera can pick up visible makeup lines.
  8. Natural makeup is best and if possible should be put on near a window using natural light.
  9. If you need to even out your skin tone, use a bronzing powder on your chest and neck.  Do be careful to not get the bronzer near the top of your gown so you don’t stain your dress.
  10.  Use a moisturizer that has SPF of 30 or more especially if your wedding is outdoors.  You may get more sun than you think and can look pink in the pictures.
  11.  Choose a lip color that is bright so you don’t look washed out.  You may also want to use an over the counter teeth whitener to complete your look.
