There is no greater challenge than doing bridal makeup. It’s the biggest day of a woman’s life, she wants to look both natural and beautiful, and the pictures she takes in that makeup are going to be viewed forever.
Here are a few tips on how to make the bride look and feel as beautiful as her new husband knows she is:
Incredible airbrushing options like Temptu Pro mimic the bride’s skin tone to create an extremely natural, yet polished, look. This technique takes a little while to perfect, so make sure you’ve practiced before you practice on a bride.
Apply Eye Makeup Before Foundation
This easy trick lets you avoid “fall out,” where eye shadow gets inadvertently sprinkled around the eye. Fall out is messy to clean up once it’s there, so avoid it in the first place by applying the foundation after you’ve finished the eyes.
Choose a Yellow Concealer
To hide unusually bright cheek color or unsightly red spots, use a yellow concealer instead of the typical green. That way, you’ll avoid an awkward green tint in photos. Make sure you re-apply the foundation after the concealer to blend the color into the skin.
Don’t Forget the Powder
Powder is essential for a wedding. The bride is going to be in that makeup for hours, and she wants to look just as fresh in the end of the reception photos as she does when she walks down the aisle. Erase shine and hold that makeup in place with a loose powdering when the final look is complete.
