5 Bridal Makeup Tips

What every future bride must know!


Feeling beautiful on your wedding day is every bride's well-deserved right. Whether you're hiring a makeup artist or watching DIY YouTube videos, figuring out which makeup look to choose so it looks great all day and throughout the years is a necessity. To help make that happen, here are 5 helpful bridal makeup tips for future brides!


1. Save the trends and experiments for another day.

Trust me, weddings are not the day you want to get too trendy. Save the fun new lip colour or trying out a new makeup style for your honeymoon! If a bright pink lip is one of your favourite looks then go for it, but if you’re not sure about it then this is probably not the day to experiment. Try to not let anyone talk you into something radically different or too far out of your comfort zone. It’s worth bearing in mind that you’ll have to live with photos from your wedding for the rest of your life, so it’s best to opt for something classic or natural.


2. Never neglect the eyebrows.


As most of you know, I also specialize in eyebrow shaping and I truly believe that eyebrows are the focal point of your face. A little tint and grooming will go a long way! It will make your makeup look more polished and it will add definition to your face. You can schedule your eyebrow artistry and lift appointment here.


Make sure to schedule your appointment in advance as I am usually 2-3 weeks pre-booked.

3. Stay moisturized!


If you can only do one thing for your skin, keep it hydrated! Stay moisturized, don’t neglect hydrating facials, and drink a tonne of water. Any blemishes or wrinkles you might have will be easier to cover up if your skin is moisturized. Makeup is a magical thing but it can only do so much. You’re going to need to put in some work too to make sure your skin is looking its very best.


4. Avoid too glossy or too matte lipsticks.


My recommendation is to avoid lipsticks at either end of the texture scale. Super glossy lipsticks will only last five minutes while too much matte may leave your lips looking dry and cakey. A moisturizing, satin-y finish lipstick is best for a wedding! It will keep your lips looking their best and will wear off in the most even way. I always provide touch-up kits for my brides so even if your lipstick wears off you can always re-apply it easily!

5. Never try new skincare or makeup the night before!


While you may be tempted to treat your skin to new, high-end products the night before your wedding, I recommend sticking to your trusted facial routine. New products mean new ingredients that your skin isn’t used to, which could potentially cause irritation. The night before the wedding day isn’t the best time to experiment!
