It may be one of the last things you think of as a bride when you're planning your wedding day. There is so much to do and your mind is a whirlwind of wedding favors, decorations, and flowers; it can make you spin! Your wedding is the most important day of your life, so of course you will want to look absolutely stunning and fabulous, like a princess or queen!
So, a big question you need to ask yourself is - should you do your own wedding makeup, or hire a professional makeup artist to do it? It really depends on how proficient you feel in applying makeup, especially to yourself. If you wear it regularly, and are skilled in applying it, then there's no reason why you can't do your own wedding makeup. Just make sure you do a trial run. Go with shades that bring out and enhance your features. There are no specific rules; just choose a shade that is flattering.
Neutral tones of brown, gold, and beige can be used for accomplishing a stunning effect. You can apply shimmer shades for your eyes and a frosted beige to the brow bone and eyelid - this will open up the eye and enhance the color. Beware and try to avoid shimmer dewy looks or your face may end up looking sweaty in the photos!
Clear glowing skin is a must for any bride and is achieved by consistently using a good skincare routine. This is quite simple, nothing complicated - just a good cleanser, toner, and moisturizer used on a daily basis, plus exfoliation twice a week - will help you maintain nice skin. So keep these products in the bathroom where you'll remember to use them. They are pointless if they're just sitting on your dresser looking pretty and gathering dust! If you have skin problems, you can consult with a beauty therapist, who can do a skin analysis, offer advice, and give you personalized recommendations to improve your skin's condition.
As your wedding day approaches, you may start feeling like you aren't able to deal with the stress of doing your own make up - especially on the morning of your big day. If this is the case then seriously consider calling in the professionals. Of course there are benefits in having someone else do the makeup for you. You can get up in the morning, take a rejuvenating bath or shower, then just sit back and relax until it's time to go. And you'll know that you're in the hands of a skilled professional with experience; hopefully this can put your mind to rest and create that stunning look you've always dreamed of. Remember the wedding cake topper may be a keepsake you want to have for years to come, but so are your wedding photos. So make sure you look spectacular for you pictures.
On your wedding morning, try to wake up early and eat some breakfast. Take time to enjoy your preparations; whether you are doing them yourself or having someone else do them for you. The most important thing is - don't worry about flowers wilting or bridesmaids stumbling and falling - this day is about you getting married to the man you love. Everything else is just details!
