Bridal Makeup Essential

Makeups and hairstyles are important parts in the whole planning procedure. No one would not like a delicate look. To capture a glowing look, brides always prepare months before. But the following tips will save brides more energy and lead to a more glamorous look.

1. Avoid using products that contain SPF
Products that contain SPF can photograph weird because of the zinc oxide found in many moisturizers and foundations. It causes that paled out face look that shows up in photographs, but not in person. So avoid products with SPF on your wedding day, but wear SPF on your honeymoon.

2. Go light on the shimmer
A highlight on cheekbones or brow bones is flattering, but too much shimmer doesn't photograph well. Try doing a complete run-through of your makeup before the wedding, and take pictures. If you see shiny or white streaks where you've applied a shimmer product, you know where to tone down.

3. Skip lip gloss 
If you're wearing a veil that comes down over your face
It's a magnet for the fabric and will make the veil stick to your lips the second you put it on. The gloss and any lipstick you're wearing will transfer to the veil, making for a messy situation.

4. Don't stray too far from your usual look
I've had minimalist makeup girls request a red lip vintage look for their trials and had brides who normally wore a lot of eyeliner ask for a natural look, but they usually don't feel right when it's done. I'm all for playing around with makeup, but this isn't the day to do it. If you want to try a smokey eye for the first time, save it for your bachelorette party!

5. Bring oil blotting sheets with you
I always include these in my bridal touchup kits. It's a long day and most people get a little shine, but these papers keep it at bay. I prefer them to powder because powder tends to cake up after multiple applications.

6. Consider using false lashes
For weddings, I prefer flares to full strip lashes. Because you can put on as few or as many as you want, you're able to control how natural or dramatic your look is.
