Simply Elegant for the Big Day
Wedding days are meant to be perfect, the venue, decor, food, dress, shoes and last, but not least, make-up.
For that perfection, it is advised that you use a professional. They have their tricks like using the milk of magnesia to ensure that your look stays matte even if you have oily skin. When it comes to wedding make-up, sometimes individuals like to incorporate their bridal colours in their make-up, for example, in their eyeshadow, this is not necessarily a great idea. There are times that this works depending on the colour, but for the bridal party, the bride usually chooses bold, bright colours and for that special day your make-up is a less and more look.
For the wedding day, soft lighter tones around the eyes are recommended. Sometimes the darker you go, the more it ages you and on your special day, you want to be classy, chic and fresh, not aged.
The same goes for lip colour, but one colour trend that will never go out of style is the classic red. Red lips on that special day are a timeless look. Many women go for something subtle like a gloss that takes less effort to reapply and this also works because, truthfully, you can never go wrong with gloss.
Heavy contouring is also not necessary, but a good highlighter or bronzer is always a plus. It adds that glow to an already perfect face and look. Just a little goes a far way. Keep it simple and elegant. Ensure that your make-up artist sets that make-up with their favourite setting spray. That trick ensures that it is set for the entire day.
When the make-up artist is done and during the course of the day ensures that when the nerves or the heat get the best of you and you start sweating you pat dry and never wipe.
Your wedding day is going to be one of the best days of your life so ensure that the look you choose is a timeless one that you will also be proud of till death do you part.
