Varied Collection to Choose your Ideal Wedding Makeup




Wedding makeup is one of the many decisions that you must do before your big day. Natural, bold, vintage, classic, glamorous, boho, edgy – there are many different looks to choose from, but how do you choose? Like most wedding-related decisions, there isn’t one correct answer.




As a general rule, you’ll want to wear more makeup than you normally do. Sweat, tears, and hugs are all hard on your makeup, so you’ll want to make sure you start off by wearing enough. This will also emphasize your features in photos and ensure that your bridal beauty will shine through even in bad lighting and during ugly cries.




1. CHOOSE YOUR MAKEUP ACCORDING TO A STYLE (PIN IT)

If choosing makeup for your big day overwhelms you, start by finding looks that you gravitate towards. Search Pinterest or Google for “bridal makeup” and pin or keep track of looks you like best. Once you’ve collected at least 30 images, examine the entire collection and see what connects them – dewy skin? posy pink blush? long and luscious lashes? Whatever it is, hone in on those commonalities and you’ll eventually uncover your inspiration.

2. CHOOSE YOUR MAKEUP BASED ON YOUR VENUE & THEME

If you already have your venue and/or theme, consider building your beauty look around it. Whether it’s a beach or a backyard, your venue can give you cues on what type of beauty you naturally gravitate towards.

3. CHOOSE YOUR MAKEUP BASED ON YOUR DRESS

One of the most common ways to choose your bridal beauty is to base it around the overall style of your dress. If your dress features lace and flowing material, consider a soft, romantic look; a slinky, sexy dress calls for a smouldering smokey eye; and bold eyeshadow perfectly complements a non-traditional dress.

4. CHOOSE YOUR MAKEUP BASED ON YOUR SIGNATURE LOOK

If you’re lucky enough to have a signature beauty look, simply step it up a notch on your wedding day. Go a little stronger and bolder with all of your makeup to make sure it shows up in photos and lasts all day.

5. ASK A PRO

If you’ve hired a makeup artist for your wedding day, don’t be afraid to ask for their advice. After all, they’re the expert. Most makeup artists offer a consultation and/or a trial session, so this is the perfect opportunity to find out what looks best on you.
