Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life, and your bridal makeup plays a huge part in making you look your best. To ensure that your wedding makeup puts you in the best light on the big day, avoid these three mishaps.
1. Not having a trial run
We're all for being brave and taking risks, but winging it shouldn't apply to your bridal makeup. A trial makeup session is a must; you want to make sure that you'll get what you want on your wedding. The trial session allows you to voice out concerns and preferences, so that your makeup artist can make adjustments for you. This will also allow your makeup artist to work faster on your wedding, since she or he already knows what you've agreed on.
2. Not being ready for wedding makeup touch-ups
You don't have to shell out big bucks for your wedding makeup, but do invest in a powder and lipstick in the same shades used by your makeup artist. You'll eventually need touch-ups as the day progresses; otherwise, you'll look washed out in photos by the time the reception rolls in. If you want to be a step ahead, invest in waterproof or long-wearing makeup formulas.
3. Not looking like you
It's understandable that you want to try something new on your wedding, but don't ask your makeup artist to go crazy with experimentation. Have one indulgence--like a bright red lipstick or fake eyelashes-and then keep the rest simple. On the big day, you should still look like you--only more glammed up than usual. Asking for changes that are too drastic will make your groom and guests unable to recognize you.
