Getting Married soon? Six Makeup Tips for the Bride
Like all major events in our lives some need a bit more planning than others. We all know that getting married is one of the biggest events in a woman’s life. The worse thing you would want is your eye makeup not holding up, wearing too much or not enough, doesn’t work with your dress etc. Note not everyone wears white when they get married these days.
Here are a few tips to think about when planning your wedding eye makeup.
Once you have picked out your dress, is now the time to decide on how you are doing to do your makeup. You can have a makeup professional do it which can be costly, especially if you are paying for yourself and as well as your bridesmaids, and your mom to name a few. Or to save yourself money you can do it yourself which is something lots of brides are doing.
Remember most of all your makeup is meant to be subtle, and unobtrusive, not overdone and in a few years look really outdated. ( Look at your mom’s wedding photos to see why.) Also think about the time of year your wedding is going to be held, summer makeup is not the same as indoor’s winter makeup would be.
Your makeup can’t be something you decide last minute, it really needs to be planned as far as ahead as getting your dress does, deciding what color your bridesmaids dresses will be etc.
First thing to do is to look through all the bride’s magazines and beauty magazines to find a look that you like. You will want to choose a set of eye shadows in colors that enhances your eyes in the shades that will go with your dress as well as works with your skin-tone.
For your eyes neutral eye shadow colors are the best choices to go with. Especially since neutral eye shadows will work pretty much with anyone skin-tone. Now is not the time to try the latest bold, outgoing eye shadows when you want your eye makeup to complete your whole look not take away from it.
Choose three eye shadows shades in neutral browns to bring out your eyes. Stay away from applying liquid or gel eyeliner unless you are well practiced at it. Using pencil eyeliner that can be smudged at the eyelash base will look more natural as well as enhance the look of your eyelashes. You may also want to look into eyelash extensions if you can afford them, if not Magic Lash is a great product to enhance your lashes. Magic Lash is really easy to apply and affordable. Or you can go with false lashes if you know what you are doing with them. Best thing to do is to experiment with a few different ways to see what you like best.
When you apply your mascara, unless you really need it do not apply it on your bottom lashes. It can smudge through the day with the tears of joy that might happen. Even though you maybe not wear water-proof mascara, your wedding day might be a day to do so. If you do decide to wear mascara on your bottom lashes, run a Q-Tip over the tips to remove any excess mascara.
There is just a few eye makeup tips that with planning can help make your wedding the best day of your life.
