Every bride wants her wedding day to be magical. If you are planning your own wedding, you will feel the same. You will want every aspect of your wedding day to be magnificent, which includes your makeup and hair. Since this is the most important day of your life, everyone will be looking at you. Therefore, to help you make the right decisions so you look elegant and natural, consider some of these most commonly asked questions.
What is the right type of makeup to wear?
Most importantly, do not get carried away with too much makeup and try to stay away from trends. If you will be getting married during daytime hours, the lighting will show every flaw. For this reason, you want to pay close attention to your foundation, concealer, and powder. If your wedding is at night, the lighting will be more forgiving. Regardless of the time of day, try to stay as natural as possible. Use soft, warm colors, just a touch of liner and shadow, and soft, sensuous lip color. Be sure to wear oil-based foundation and waterproof mascara so you stay looking fresh and beautiful when the tears flow.
Is there a type of foundation better than another type?
Again, choose an oil-based foundation that is sheer and choose a color that is one shade lighter than your natural skin tone. This will help your face appear healthy and radiant, which is perfect for photographs. If you use a concealer, choose a cream style, and the same for your powder.
Are there any special tips for helping makeup to last throughout the wedding and reception?
In fact, there is. After you have applied all your makeup, including foundation, eyes, and lips, take a powder puff and smooth it across pressed powder. Then press it down firmly onto your skin. Wait about one minute and then use a brush in loose powder, tapping off the excess, and dust it over your entire face. This sets your makeup, making it last.
What should every bride bring with her for possible touchups?
Before you head o your wedding ceremony, put a small emergency kit together. At minimum, you want to include extra pressed and loose powder to help eliminate shine, some concealer, and soft, plum or mauve lipstick and gloss.
What is the best option for hairstyles and veils or headpieces?
You should choose your hairstyle before you choose your headpiece or veil. The reason is that you want a style that makes you look glamorous and comfortable, and then have the headpiece or veil incorporated into that style. Once you know the style for your hair, choose a headpiece or veil that will enhance both. Be sure to take the headpiece or veil to your hairdresser several weeks before the wedding so he or she can do a practice run.
Are there any hairstyles better than other styles?
The goal of most brides is to have a polished hairstyle that looks well groomed. The style will depend on your face shape, color, and budget. Typically, the bride will wear her hair up, with or without a few small strands framing the face to create a romantic look. The main thing to remember is any cutting or coloring should be done weeks before the wedding just in case things do not go as expected. You should also wash your hair the day before you have your hair styled and not the day of. This is because squeaky-clean hair is too sleek and actually harder to style. Meet with a reputable stylist to discuss all your options.
