Start pampering your skin weeks before your wedding. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and book regular facials at a reputable salon. Your salon stylist will provide the regimen and products your skin needs, giving you the foundation for flawless wedding make-up.

2. Experiment and Document

Book a test run with a makeup artist, and document every makeup look. This lets you see how different kinds of makeup work on your face and it allows you to recreate the perfect makeup on your wedding day.

3. Play Up Your Eyes or Your Lips

This classic beauty rule holds especially true for bridal makeup. Too much makeup will make you look harsh or washed out in photos. Wedding make-up should enhance your natural beauty. Your makeup artist can guide you and make suggestions based on your features, face shape, and skin tone.

4. Take Your Skin Into Consideration

If you have oily skin, definitely apply primer and finishing powder before you walk down the aisle. Your makeup artist will be able to suggest the ideal finishing powder for your skin type, and can probably toss in some valuable recommendations for blotting papers, too.

If you have dry skin, moisturize and apply primer. Primer fills in fine lines and brightens dull, dry spots. Consult a professional makeup artist for suggestions on a good regimen.

5. Get a Manicure (And Pedicure)

Nothing polishes off a wedding day look like neat, beautiful nails. Book regular appointment with a professional make-up artist and take good care of your nails in the meantime.

6. Look Like Yourself – Just Polished

Get professional make-up in tones, colors, and styles that make you feel comfortable. After all, the goal of bridal makeup is to make you look and feel absolutely stunning. Since you’re already beautiful, emphasize and accentuate your natural beauty.

7. Cream Eye Shadow and Blush Are Essential

Cream eye shadow colours stay clean, vibrant, and smudge-free for hours. Cream blush is similarly long-lasting and easier to blend, which makes it easier to achieve a natural, radiant look.

8. Reconsider Lipstick and Lip Gloss

Lip gloss glares under flashing lights, and it fades fast. Lipstick can look very harsh in photos, and it rubs off easily. The solution? A good lip stain. Lip stains provide beautiful colour that doesn’t rub off or fade.

9. Sheer Foundations Look Better in Photographs

Sheer foundations look gorgeously natural in photographs and in person. Unlike heavy foundations which tend to look flat and pale under a camera flash, or airbrush makeup which is difficult to touch up, sheer foundations beautify, brighten and perfect your complexion while letting your natural beauty shine through in photos, on video, and in person.

10. Invest in Body Makeup

Body makeup keeps shoulders, throat, chest and back look as flawless as your face. It ties your look together in person and in photos.
