9 New Bridal Makeup Tips: Bridal Makeup Articles
your wedding day, you want to look fabulous-but remain true to yourself. You
don't want to look like a stranger in your wedding photos.
1.Don't usually wear makeup? Bend your rule just a little. At the very least,
your skin should look flawless and glowing.
2.Take a tip from the film industry: before applying foundation, apply a
transparent gel or "primer." It forms a barrier between your skin and makeup, so
makeup stays on and colors stay true. It also keeps makeup out of your pores.
3.Define your eyes, aiming for a natural look:
>Shape eyes softly with eyeliner - smudgeable powder liner works best. Avoid
a harsh line.
>Curl your lashes. Hold the curler against dry lashes for five seconds, then
apply 2-3 layers of mascara (waterproof, of course).
>Working with a professional? Have her add individual false lashes in the
outside corners for impact.
4.Choose your eye shadow carefully!
>Avoid trendy colors. (Although blue is in right now, photos will look dated
>Avoid bright colors-they scream out of photos.
>Stay away from gray; it makes skin look ashy.
>Choose a true color. Neutrals are best.
5.Make the most of your lips:
>Lip liner frames your lips and holds color in. But choose a natural color -
nothing too dark.
>For best results, brush your lipstick on. Add a small amount of gloss,
applied to the center of your bottom lip, for a special glow.
>Avoid pale, pale colors-your lips will fade into your dress.
>Keep a balance between your lips and your eyes.
6.Love to tan? Go easy-too much tanning looks artificial and harsh in
7.Have your wedding makeup professionally applied. The difference in front
of the camera is startling.
8.Take a few days off from makeup before the wedding-give your skin a rest.
9.Sleep, sleep, sleep (if you can)! Nothing helps your skin more
