Makeup Your Wedding Lips

Makeup, then Kiss...
Did you know that the darker your skin tone, the darker you can go with your lip color on your wedding day? Burgundy and blackberry are beautiful on dark skin. Women with medium skin tones look pretty in currant or red, and those with light skin look best in low-voltage neutrals and glosses. If your bottom lip is paler than your top lip, you can even them out by applying a sheer, dark lipstick to your lower lip as a base, then sweeping the same lipstick over both lips.

If you want to have very full lips that don't require too much enhancement, avoid bright, attention-getting colors and stick to quiet, flattering shades instead, like caramel and soft brown. Perfect for kissing the groom!

Why Lash Out on Your Wedding Day

Why Lash Out?
Far beyond what a mere mascara wand can accomplish, false eyelashes add length and fullness to the tiny hairs that frame your peepers. When applied correctly, they can look really natural. They also minimize the need for heavy mascara or eye makeup, if you're into a more natural look. 

 Lashes aren't just a statement; they're practical, too. "They open up the eye and make a dramatic difference in photographs.  And if they're applied correctly, you don't even notice the lashes, but you can see that the eyes look stronger, brighter, and more defined."

Your Wedding Day Updo

When it comes to a wedding, your hairstyle is one of the most important accessories.  Elegant updos are often sleek hairstyles in which the hair is swept up and sometime off the face.   Simply select a style that best matches your personality, dress and veil. Whatever you choose, make sure you do a test run prior to the wedding date.

These wedding hairstyles suit long hair with either long layers or no layering at all...

Lasting Bridal Makeup

Your Wedding Day Makeup: For lasting wedding makeup use water-resistant liquid liner and mascara to define your eyes. It'll prevent those raccoon-like smudges that occur when crying or sweating.  Try a cheek stain for a long-lasting, natural looking flush.

Also, choose a long wearing lipstick that has a decent moisture content, so it won't dry your lips out. If you'd prefer to use regular lipstick, apply a thin layer over your lip liner with a lip brush and blot with a tissue; then apply a second layer.

Your Bridal Best Friend (BBF)

Your Wedding Day Makeup:  Do you have your BBF (bride's best friend) your Makeup Artist? Yes, finding a makeup artist is always a difficult task because you want to look absolutely perfect on your special day. 
Here are some tips on finding your BBF:

1. Go through some magazines and collect at least three looks you may want to try for your wedding. Make sure it's a classic look that you will admire when you look back in 30 years -- nothing trendy and nothing over the top. You want to look like you but better.


2. Take a picture of your dress and your bridesmaids' dresses so you have a canvas to work from. Your dress may have a colored sash or beading that's important for the makeup artist to see.


3. At the trial, be vocal and tell the makeup artist what you like and don't like. She is there to make you feel like the stunning bride you will be. Make sure she tells you what products she's using. Should you decide to book her, make sure it's at least two hours before your big "I do" moment. You don't want to feel rushed and must allow time for other important things like getting into your dress!

Moisturizing After Primer On Your Wedding Day

Your Wedding Day Makeup: Use just a very light coating of moisturizer after  primer. You want to keep makeup from caking in fine lines, but you do not want to create a greasy or slippery surface on your face.
