Wedding Makeup

There are some many things to arrange when you're planning your wedding, from the flowers, cake and catering to the dress, hair and shoes. You want everything to be perfect and, of course, you want to look truly amazing on the day.

Even if you're a dab hand with the lippy you might like to consider booking a professional makeup service. For one thing, it takes away the stress of doing it yourself. It will also make you feel more pampered on your big day.

Whilst your DIY makeup may be just fine for everyday wear you're going to want something really gorgeous for your wedding. You also need it to continue looking that good all day and probably into the night. Professional makeup artists have the right products and techniques to ensure this happens.

Changing Styles

Throughout the ages, women have put extra time and effort into doing their hair and makeup on their wedding day. However, you'll be amazed how much the styles have changed over the years.

There are also many cultural differences. For example, in Japan, the tradition used to be that brides had to paint their faces white. In Renaissance Italy, women stained their lips and cheeks red and often used a lead-based paint on their faces.

By the 1930s, lipstick, blush and nail polish were more readily available and wedding makeup was beautifully applied. Hairstyles became more elaborate, too. Ever since then wedding makeup has been a crucial part of the big day.

Professional Wedding Makeup

One thing's for sure, don't pick your wedding day to experiment with a new look or new products unless you are a professional makeup artist. Things can go horribly wrong. The aim is to look totally gorgeous whilst still feeling comfortable with the colours and style. You still want to look like you.

Many brides use pictures of celebs as a guide for their wedding day look. This is fine so long as you remember that you are not that person. Your face shape and skin tone is probably completely different for starters, so the products won't look the same on you.

Many celeb photographs are shot using studio lights, or perhaps they were taken at night. Either way, it changes the way the makeup looks.

Do a Trial Run

The best option is to use a professional makeup service for your big day and book well in advance. Arrange to go in for a chat about your ideas, colour scheme and dress. The best wedding makeup artists will ask also ask about the venue, to get an idea of lighting. If your wedding is taking place outdoors then a completely different approach is needed.

It's a great idea to do a trial run. That way there's plenty of time to make changes if you don't like the look. Try and wear the same colour as your wedding dress.

Makeup artists have lots of tricks up their sleeves to ensure you look amazing. For example, they may recommend using a lip stain rather than lipstick. There's likely to be a lot of kissing on the day and you want your look to last.

Less is More

When it comes to your eyes the best wedding makeup is a softer, sultrier look. Whilst it may be tempting to go for something really dramatic, less is more. Grays, browns and even navy work well. Just don't overdo the smudging as this will give you tired looking eyes in your photographs.

If you're thinking of getting eyelash extensions for your wedding, you'll definitely want to do a trial run. Whilst unlikely it is possible that you could have an allergic reaction to the product, which would ruin your big day.

Again, don't go too dramatic. Barbie lashes will definitely have an impact but perhaps not the kind you wanted. Remember, you could always opt for false eyelashes as an alternative to extensions.

Top off your look with perfect brows. Decide in advance whether you are going to get them waxed or threaded and make sure they are well defined on the day. You'll find wedding makeup services in your locality by searching Bookwell.
