Wedding Day Make-up Tips from a Spa Professional

Most women consider their wedding day to be the single most important day of their lives. They want to look beautiful. Even women who rarely wear makeup plan to use it on their big day. The problem that many women run into is that they don’t know how they’re supposed to apply the makeup.

The first thing you need to remember when it comes to your wedding day makeup is that no one should be able to tell you’re wearing it. It needs to be applied in a way that it draws attention to your natural beauty. It shouldn’t look like you’ve applied a heavy layer of war paint. When applying your eye makeup, remember less will always be better than too much. Use a light hand.

Yes, your wedding day will be happy, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry about your eye makeup running. There’s bound to be a few moment that move you to tears. You need to make sure you’re wearing makeup that won’t run when you cry.

Don’t assume that once you’ve applied your makeup, you won’t have to worry about it. It’s going to get smudged and sweated on. Keep extra in your bridal bag so you can frequently touch it up.

Don’t wait until the last minute to think about your wedding makeup. It’s every bit as important as your hair, and it deserves the same amount of forethought. In addition to carefully choosing the most flattering shades, you should also practice applying it a few times before your big day.

Sometimes the image you see reflected in the mirror, isn’t the same as what the camera picks up. Enlist the help of one of your girlfriends and have them take a few snap shots of you wearing your makeup. Some brides choose to do this during bridal gown fittings, others simply make sure their wearing a shirt that’s the same color. You should also snap some shots in a variety of lighting situations so you can get the full effect.

If the idea of applying your own makeup seems to daunting, or you just want to kick back and relax, that’s okay. You don’t have to handle it yourself. Many brides have opted to spend the morning of their wedding day in a spa where they’re pampered while there hair gets done up and a professional applies the makeup. It’s not at all unusual for the entire bridal party to share the spa  at the same time. It’s a great way to bond.

If you decide to have your wedding makeup done at the spa, you do want to have the beautician show either you or a trusted girlfriend how to touch up the makeup so you look beautiful through the entire day.
