Keep your bridal makeup natural as you want your makeup in photographs to look timeless for years to come. Focus on enhancing your natural features rather than elaborate makeup that could go out of style.
When planning your makeup trials here are a few of our favourite tips we recommend you consider.
If you get these basic factors right the rest of your make-up will work well together. Put your focus on the most important elements of your look, such as beautifully glowing skin, softly groomed brows and feathery lashes. A good makeup artist will emphasise your eyes by brightening any darkness under them with corrector and concealer. Go for lip shades that are one or two shades darker than what you normally wear. Makeup artists suggest that brides use pinks and reds in various shading to offer excellent contrast in photos.
Bring references to your make-up trial. Start looking for images of make-up that you really like and bring them with you on the day. Try to identify what it is you like about the make-up in the image this will help guide your makeup artist when doing your trails. Be sure to wear a plain white T-shirt. You’ll be able to see just how strong the makeup appears against a pale color, and it will give you the best idea of how it’ll look on the actual day in your bridal gown.
Foundations are generally categorised into two types: pink and yellow. A bride’s skin tone will suit one or the other so be sure and test out all possible options if you don’t already know. This will allow you to see how different foundations appear on the skin. Match any liquid foundation with its loose mineral foundation for the perfect finish. While it is important to wear the foundation tone that suits your skin tone, many wedding professionals believe that yellow undertones work best with flash photography.
It is not true that your make-up has to be plastered on for the photographs. Lots of wedding photography is done in natural light, and if your make up is heavy it will look obvious.
Remember, your fiancé and your guests love you for who you are! Keep it natural and simple and you will be a beautiful radiant bride.
