All eyes are on the bride on her wedding day and it is your time to shine. You are excited, you have been shopping for months now and waiting eagerly for your big day. But, even if you have bought the most expensive outfit and jewelry, if your makeup is not done properly, then everything will make no impact. Thus, the most important part of your big day is makeup.
However, there are some things that you must take care of so that your wedding makeup doesn’t destroy your whole bridal look. If you are not well prepared, there are quite a few things that can go wrong when it comes to Bridal Makeup. Planning ahead will help you to avoid these wedding makeup mistakes and make sure your look is flawless as you prepare for your big day:
It’s common for everyone to have a friend who is good at makeup and would definitely offer to do it for your wedding. But no matter how good your friend is at doing makeup you need to have a professional makeup artist so that your look is perfect with no mistakes at the last moment. Get in touch with Shweta Gaur, the Best Bridal Makeup Artist in Delhi to get an amazing makeup for your wedding.
Even if you have to mix three foundation colors to find the right match for your skin, make sure that your base is neither too dark nor too light. Because either way you do it, it will show up even more exaggerated in the wedding pictures. Going too light or too dark can make you look like you’ve painted your face, and either one shows up looking even more overstated in the wedding photos.
Start testing out foundations about 3 months before your wedding and continue testing based on if you’re spending more time in the sun or experimenting with new facial products that could affect the texture of your skin. Start testing on a daily basis and see what’s working for you.
Concealer is important and we all know that but overuse of concealer is also just as bad. Putting on the right amount of concealer is important under your eyes as well. Dark circles under your eyes look bad, especially in wedding photos. Therefore, make sure that you are putting on a suitable amount of concealer so that it conceals any blemishes if you have.
Eyes are the most important feature for any makeup look, and when it comes to your wedding day, it should be taken care of exceptionally. Also, do not forget to use enough amount of mascara that will enhance your overall look. The eye makeup look that is too smoky on a bride can cast a shadow around the eyes in photographs. Instead, opt for soft and subtle eyes. And be sure that you’re choosing shades that will enhance your eye color.
Exfoliation before application of the lipstick is very important whether you choose lipstick or lip gloss. Use a sugar scrub and your toothbrush to buff away dead skin and put a moisturizing mask on your lips overnight to make lips soft and smooth for application on the morning of your wedding.
This is one of the common mistakes that women make during their wedding. It is natural to get emotional during a wedding and tears are almost certain. Hence it becomes important to avoid mascara that tears with a waterproof formula. Do not forget to use waterproof mascara so that it enhances your eye makeup look and doesn’t smudge when the emotional part of a wedding comes in.
Don’t go too rosy and make sure you blend, blend, and blend. Apply a subtle hint of blush to your cheeks making sure the shade you choose isn’t too bright or even too dark.
Your wedding day isn’t the time to experiment with red lipstick or smoky eyes for the first time. Choose tones that you feel comfortable with and most like yourself. Best Bridal Makeup Artist in Noida, Shweta Gaur says that trying something new for your look on your wedding day is not a good idea as you don’t want to take chances, especially for your big day. Thus, be sure what you are putting on your face, discuss about it with your makeup artist in detail before the wedding and try it out before the wedding day to make sure how the final outcome will look like. This will avoid any chances of mistakes in your whole look.
A little shimmer or glitter on the cheeks looks dewy and fresh but if worn on the nose or forehead, it can look like your skin is greasy. One of the Best Bridal Makeup Experts, Celebrity Makeup artist Shweta Gaur says that a sheer gold shimmer along the tops of the cheekbones, on the Cupid’s bow of the lips, and just under the brows is more than enough. Even if you want to add, just take a little bit and do not add extra glitter or shimmer. This will exaggerate the whole makeup look where it will start looking bad at one point. Hence, keeping it minimal is the best thing you can do.
