Wedding season is right around the corner. Whether you are the bride, mother of the bride, bridesmaid, guest, or the makeup artist, you may be in need of tips on how to get the perfect wedding makeup look. Shannon, one of our beauty therapists and wedding make-up specialist at Medi-Cosmetic, shares her best wedding makeup tips.
“My best wedding day makeup advice is to look like you, just enhanced. If you don’t normally wear a lot of makeup I would suggest staying light on your wedding day as well. You want your husband to recognize you and you want to be happy when you look back at photos. Waterproof and highly water resistant makeup is a must! You want to look your best even through tears (happy tears, of course)! I always tend to lean toward the pressed powder when doing wedding makeup as it has a more matte finish. Brides get nervous and hot…you want them to look fresh in photos and not shiny. False lashes look beautiful on your wedding day, but I would advise doing a pre-wedding trial first so that you can see if you like them and get used to them. I always suggest wearing a little more blush than normal on your wedding day, as wearing all white can tend to make you look washed-out in photos. Always purchase the lip color or gloss you will be wearing on your wedding day so that you can use it for touchups throughout the night. I always advise keeping blotting papers on hand as well. Eye Highlighter Pencil is a must for highlighting! I usually use the highlighter pencil under the brows, on the inner corner of the eyes, along the cheekbone, and right above the Cupid’s bow of the lips!”
