Wedding Makeup Do’s and Don'ts
This year, so far, had been tough on everything wedding related, from the actual wedding ceremony to the venues, florist and caterers, photographs and makeup artists.
But, with some good news on the horizon, ( the Danish Government announced that there will present a plan for how to hold weddings, confirmations etc. when phase three begins, on the 9th of June), I thought we might talk about some wedding makeup Do’s and Don'ts.
The wedding day is one of the most important days in a woman life, and the planning of it starts early with finding the perfect venue, deciding on the invitations and fine tuning the guest list, selecting the gorgeous gown, picking the flowers and tasting wedding cakes,
It is also important to take the time to plan out and trial your wedding hair and makeup.
In my experience over the years, working with a lot of different brides, I put together a list of wedding makeup Do’s and Don'ts that I think you will find useful.
1. DO have a makeup/hairstyle trial, but no sooner that 4-5 weeks before the big day.
A trial is the best opportunity for the bride and her artist to get to know one another, to fine tune the entire look, test out the longevity of the hair and makeup and to match the timing and mood of the big day.
2. DO wear a white blouse or T-shirt to the makeup trial (or the same color as your dress)
This way you can see how the makeup looks against the color and take away a possible source of stress, as you will know exactly the look you are getting ahead of the special day.
After the look is done, step into natural light, and take some pictures with and without flash. If your makeup looks great in natural light, it will look great anywhere.
3. DO go for a natural makeup that enhances your features
Your wedding day photo album will be with you for years and years, and you want to look back on one of the most significant days in your life, and feel like yourself, so chose a look that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful, matches your style and personality.
1. DO NOT change your skin care routine to close to the big day
A few days before your wedding is not the time to experiment with skin treatments, peels, or products you are unfamiliar with.
If you're prone to breakouts, best thing you can do is to keep your routine consistent and hydrate in the morning and night. Also do not be tempted to pile on the products to preempt pimples in the days leading up to your wedding.
2. DO NOT get caught up in beauty trends
Trends don’t last forever so choose a classic look that will never date. You want to look back on this day, ten years from now, and still look modern and relevant. Natural lighting accentuates your natural beauty, so keep it light and fresh.
3. DO NOT get a spray tan too close to the wedding
Don't book your tanning session the day before the wedding, instead, build color gradually over several sessions in the weeks leading up to the big day. This way you can test whether or not you like it, and you can control the evenness of the tan better.
If you get it done the day before, you run the risk of it bleeding onto your gown.
4. DO NOT let the makeup artist take over
Although the makeup artist is the expert and can offer some good advice, don’t let them completely take over. Make sure you know what you like and what you don't, and do not be afraid to speak up. After all you know your face more than anyone so you will know what makes you comfortable.
