3 Bridal make-up tips no one tells you!

You’ve probably scanned Pinterest about a million times by now, looking for the perfect make-up look for you Wedding day. Let’s not even start with the endless search for the perfect make-up artist!

I have compiled a list of 3 life changing make-up tips for your wedding day (That no one tells you…..)

Whether you are doing your own make-up or you have a professional make-up artist, these are great tips to keep in mind.

  1. SPF

It’s very important that you DON’T wear any foundation with a SPF on you wedding day!

You might be thinking what is she talking about? We all know it’s important to wear a daily SPF and most of us have a foundation with a SPF in it, right?

For daily use this is great because the SPF protects you from harmful UVB rays, however the SPF will bounce the light off a flashing camera at night.

This is why you might appear pale in photographs at night. It doesn’t mean you don’t have the right colour foundation, you probably do! It’s simply just the light bouncing off the SPF.

*Make sure your Make-up artist is using stage make-up, they usually don’t have a SPF in them. (This makes sense because of the stage lights) Kryolan is one of the products I would recommend.

*Remember: When you touch-up your own make-up, to use a powder with no SPF in it.

2. Lashes

When it comes to false lashes and lash extensions, I am probably the biggest advocate, especially on you wedding day!

It’s important to ask you Make-up artist if they include lashes in the overall price. There are some make-up artists that charge extra for the lashes.

On you wedding day you want to feel the most beautiful you have ever felt in your life, right? However, you still want your groom to recognise the person walking down the aisle. Whether you’re doing permanent or on the day lashes it’s important that they are individual, it will look more natural, but still give you that WOW factor.

3. Don’t stick with a trend!

Your wedding pictures will be something you cherish forever, and at the end of the day, it will be the only thing you are left with (and your husband I guess ;) ).

Don’t try a trend out on your wedding day, rather go for more neutral colours.

Blue eyeshadow, over contouring and out of control browns is a no-no!

You can still be very glam or more natural with neutral colour palette.
