Bridal make-up tips and tricks *mini post*

Hey lovelies...
If you are lucky enough to be getting hitched soon then keep reading...
I just thought i would share with you some quick tips about bridal make-up, the do's and more importantly the dont's!!!

Before the big day do's

  • Try to get a consultation with a few make-up artists before the big day,some artists charge an extra fee for this,some might do it for free.
  • If you are hiring a make-up artist take along images of looks that you would like on the day,she should look through them and come up with a style tailored to suit you personally based on these images.
  • Also take your own make-up bag with you so that the artist can get an idea of what your everyday make-up style is.
  • If you and your make-up artist have different ideas (this does sometimes happen!) suggest to her/him that they do half a face your way half a face theirs have them explain their ideas to you,a decent MUA will listen, and a really good artist will more than likely suggest this to you first.

Before the big day Donts

  • Remember that you will be pulling your wedding day photo's out time and time again for many years to come.Unless you have a themed wedding,it is a good idea not to go for any kind of fashion trend as a wedding make-up look as it will become dated,try and keep the look as close to how you look day to day with a little more structure on lips (lipliner,deeper shades),cheeks and eyes (lashes,liner).The look should be timeless.
  • Don't be dominated by your make-up artist,a good artist will listen and offer advice,not push her own tastes and style onto you.
  • Don't forget that when choosing your MUA,a reccomendation from someone you trust (and whose wedding pics look beautiful!!) is a fantastic way to pick your MUA.
  • Don't go for a dewy base unless you are prepared to touch it up alot! As much as dewy looks beautiful it will move throughout the day,think of sun,bright lights,hot reception :/ but again it's up to you and if you are prepared to keep touching up then i say go for it ( i actually think i would want a dewy base!!)

  1. I am quite sure I will learn plenty of new stuff right here. It is important to keep all Bridal Party Makeup Great for light to medium skin tones, it really highlights the browbone nicely and this matte shade applies very smooth but it's a miracle worker for your complexion. Many thanks for the important information I got from your web site.

  2. Nice post! I love the tips! I didn't realize that. Thanks...

  3. For long lasting of your brushes clean them as often as possible. Spray some alcohol on a paper towel and sweep your brush lightly over it. If the brushes are of natural hair it is advisable to shampoo and condition it once in a week.
