Wedding Makeup works hard for you on this day that is unlike any other in your life. You will be the centre of attention, from every direction, with hardly a minute to yourself, and you'll want to feel that you look your best no matter where someone is looking at you from. We have compiled this collection of wedding makeup tips to help you.
Plan your makeup for the right look- and plan early! If you have a preference for any particular brands of beauty products, note these well in advance, and remember to trial these during the same season as your wedding is in, ideally about 4-6 weeks prior to the day. The subtle changes in skin properties- texture and composition- mean that the same products will have different effect at different times of of the year. See an important reference to products on our questions and answers about wedding makeup page.
Don't throw caution to the wind and try something radically new with your wedding makeup on the day. If you're considering testing a new look, speak with your makeup artist about this, and trial it before the day. Our makeup trials are an ideal opprtunity to preview the entire look- we can prepare you, complete with hair styling- and you can try your wedding gown on to get a complete picture of the final presentation.
If there are problem areas which annoy you- skin conditions, a general lacklustre or visible open pores to name a few- attend to these early. Speak with your beautician or health care professional about a course of treatment which will eliminate obstacles to achieving your perfect flawless look.
