Some DO’s and DON’Ts for your wedding day makeup from a Professional Makeup Artist

DO stay true to yourself – don’t try to look like someone else on your wedding day. A fake appearance is not how you want to be remembered on the most important day of your life. Instead aim to look like yourself but the very best version of yourself.

DON’T overdo foundation – less is more. Caked on foundation isn’t attractive and can age you and it will appear in photos as if you’re trying to hide something! Natural coverage is key.

DO use powder and blotting paper to control shine throughout the day but try not to pile too much powder on your face. Instead, alternate powder and blotting papers throughout the day and evening.

DON’T choose old fashioned or out of date makeup and hair styles instead choose timeless classic styles that will look stunning today and remain beautiful 10 years from now.

DO choose professional brand makeup products as they have longer staying power, are camera perfect and will give you the results you want on your wedding day.

DON’T choose retail brand makeup products. In many cases retail brand makeup isn’t meant to last all day on your skin. It’s how they keep bringing you back to buy more!!

DO whenever possible, use waterproof and/or water resistant makeup including foundation, mascara and eyeliner.

DON’T forget to bring additional lipstick, lip liner, lip gloss, powder and blotting papers for touch ups throughout the day and evening.

DO make certain your bridal party makeup and hair styles flow with your own bridal makeup and hair style – you want harmony in your wedding photographs not a hotchpotch of different styles.

DON’T wait until the last minute to organize your bridal beauty or you run the risk of not achieving the look you want.

DO use a primer on your eyes and your lips – this will help with creasing and longevity with your eyeshadow and help your lipstick from bleeding.
