You would have to be slightly crazy to get married at this time of the year, here in Melbourne anyhow.
But, if you are ahead of the game and are planning to wed in the coming months or have a friend who is planning to do so, there is some good makeup advice we must share.
Although the dress is a clear and crucial priority, your makeup is equally important.
To ensure you still look like you and are happy with your finished look, remember to do the following.
1. Book a makeup trial.
Skipping out on scheduling a trial with your makeup artist will mean that you may not be on the same page.
When it comes to your big day, you should look like the best version of yourself, simply accentuated with makeup, so that your groom recognises you when you’re walking down the aisle.
2. Don’t keep your makeup and your bridesmaids uniform and don’t cake on the foundation.
You should stand out on your day and even the slightest tweak to your look will make a world of difference.
However, do ensure not to cake on the foundation as no one looks better in photos with more base makeup on.
You’re far better off using a perspiration resistant formula, than looking as though you have theatre makeup on.
3. Use a lip stain and don’t over do the highlighter.
If you use of our Lip Bomb Lacquer Stains, than you have this area covered, but if not, do take the time to try a lip stain, you may love lipsticks but the last thing you want is to get it all over your face.
You want a glowing finish on your big day, but you don’t want to over do it. Be sure to apply highlighter on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and on the inner corners of your eyes only.
4. Don’t try false lashes and fake tan for the first time.
As you may have guessed, your big day isn’t the right time to try something new when it comes to beauty.
If you are set on fake lashes, try them out when you do your makeup trial.
When it comes to fake tan, there is a lot of trial and error.
Spray tans are almost impossible to remove and you definitely don’t want to have to deal with the aftermath of a botched job on the big day.
So, if you’ve never gotten a spray tan before or haven’t in a long time, schedule a trial run for a month before your date.
So, with the above beauty advice, we hope you make the most of your big day!!!
