Your wedding day should be the best and most beautiful day of your life. If you do not have money available for a professional makeup artist, there is no need to panic! With these top tips, you can achieve the perfect look at home:
Take A Trip To The Beauty Department
It is likely that your makeup kit will contain tried and tested favorites. For your wedding day, you can combine these with some new products to help you achieve the dream result. Ask an expert about shades and products to complement your skin tone and try some samples. If you are not confident about applying your own wedding makeup, why not book a lesson? Your makeup artist can show you which products to use and how to use them to get the best outcome. You could also invite your maid of honor along, so that they can help out on the day. Wedding makeup can be tricky to master because it needs to last all day. You may also have to think about the weather and the light when you are having your photographs taken.
Match Your Makeup To Your Dress
It is important that your makeup complements your dress. If you have a romantic vintage lace dress, you should opt for a natural look. Heavy eyes or a dramatic lip will steal attention from the dress. If you are having a themed wedding, you may be able to take more risks and be more adventurous with your look. For black tie events, you may wish to channel old Hollywood glamour with voluminous lashes and a classic red lip. For festival style celebrations, team rosy cheeks and a swipe of bronze along the forehead with a flower crown and loose waves.
Lay The Foundations
On your big day, you will probably be up for at least twelve hours, so your makeup needs to last. It is essential to prime your skin and to use a good foundation. You want to look natural, but you need something that will stay the course. Once you have primed, apply concealer and then foundation. Your base may feel a little heavier than normal. Once your foundation is set, you can apply your bronzer or blush. Add a touch of color to your cheeks to define your cheekbones and give you a healthy looking complexion. Opt for a shade, which brings your eyes out and go easy with the liner. It is a good idea to ask one of your bridesmaids to carry a small pot of your foundation in their bag, so you can retouch during the day.
Set Your Makeup
RCMA’s hit powder will ensure your makeup enhances your natural beauty from dawn until dusk. Apply a thin layer of powder over your foundation to create a stunning matte finish.
Take Care With Highlighter
Usually, a higlighter is a must for gorgeous glowing skin. However, with camera flashes, highlighter and sparkly products can make you look shiny. If you do want to inject a subtle glimmer, use a very small amount and ensure you blend thoroughly.
