Bridemaids Makeup Tips

When people talk about a wedding, the main topics are the bride, groom and wedding party; but how about the bridesmaids? They are an important part of the wedding as well, right? As a bridesmaid you have to work really hard, do whatever the bride asks you to do and be by her side in almost every moment of the wedding; it’s not easy.

It’s tough being a bridesmaid and having to wear a dress chosen by another person just because it compliments the décor, but when that same dress or color is used by other bridesmaids it just gets nasty (and trust me when I say that it is impossible for 3-5 women to look incredible wearing the same type of dress).
So, what’s left for a bridesmaid to do on that wedding day so she can show off her personality? You guessed it, the makeup. Even if a bride asks all her bridesmaids to have the same type of look, that doesn’t mean that each and everyone will use the same makeup products and techniques.

This being said, let’s offer all the bridesmaids out there some quick tips on how to look gorgeous with the help of just a little bit of makeup.

The first question you should ask yourself is what type of makeup you are looking for? bridesmaid makeup

There are thousands of options and if you are not confident in yourself, the decision will end up seeming overwhelming.  There are three main categories of makeup that will help you decide a bit faster. Are you looking for a natural look, one that puts an accent on your eyes and makes them bold or one that will make a statement and emphasizes your lips and eyes?
Never forget that no matter what style you choose, a bridesmaid makeup has to bring out your true personality so don’t go over the top with tons of foundation on your skin.
If you decide to do the makeup yourself, you must use only your own products because you have bought them especially for your skin type and tone and also your skin is used with them. You will be sure to avoid a disaster on that day.

It is possible that your eyes seem a little bit irritated or dry, but just because of the past sleepless nights or the stress accumulated due to the wedding. It is highly recommended to use moisturizing eye drops. Just a drop every couple of hours will make your eyes look sparkling and fresh.

One of the most interesting pieces of advice out there regarding makeup is that a bridesmaid should take into consideration the season in which the wedding takes place. For example, if the wedding is in the summer, think about glowing ethereal colors and rich caramel during the autumn. If it takes place during the winter, try the dramatic effect of the jewels and the pastel colors during the spring.

The last and not least when it comes to makeup advice is that a bridesmaid must always carry in her clutch a tiny army of touch up tools such as mascara, lipstick, foundation and whatever other products she might have used during her makeup session.

Is Your Skin Wedding Day Ready?

skinThere are not many things that can make a woman feel a mixture of emotions and frustration all combined in just one event. An event that she will remember her entire life and that will be the start of a new life. Yes, you guessed it, the big wedding day.

Each of us imagine our wedding day in a certain way and some of us even start planning it years before we even get engaged (stupid, right?); that’s how important a wedding day is for a woman. For that special day, a bride will go over the top to make sure her dress fits perfect, her hair and makeup make her stand out and look like a princess. A lot of work is needed for just a day, but all that could go down the drains if her skin is not perfect.

We can’t start thinking about this problem just a few days before the wedding. Most experts say that a bride needs at least 3 months in advance to start fixing certain aspects of the skin and should follow a few easy steps that will ensure a perfect face for those wedding day pictures.

Here are some tricks that will help any future bride conquer the world on her special day:

1. Create a routine for your skin (cleanse – exfoliate – moisturize)

Each morning and each night you have to clean your face. You would be surprised to see how dirty your skin is each time you clean it. The dust in the air and bacteria will slowly affect you pores.
An exfoliation can be done either daily or weekly; it generally depends on the type of product you use, if it’s gentle or a little bit rough. No matter what, get rid of those nasty dead skin cells.

Each and every morning you must use a moisturizer that has a SPF of at least 15 and it is better to use an oil-free cream.

2. Professional assistance

Each month, at least until the wedding, go to a professional clinic and ask for a full skin treatment. It relaxes the face skin but also provides other forms of treatment.

3. Identify your skin problems

It doesn’t matter what those problems are, but you have to be aware of them and try to fix them. For example, if around your eyes you have some wrinkles, it makes no sense using wrinkle cream all over your face. The same goes for acne or dark spots.

4. Do’s and Don’ts before the wedding

A bride should get a professional facial treatment a few days before the wedding and on the morning of the big day she has to put on a mask to moisturize and to remove the bags under your eyes. All this will help you have a bright and healthy skin complexion.

Never use a new product with just a few days of the wedding (it almost always goes wrong).

Any bride’s worst nightmare is waking up on the wedding day with a huge zit on her face. Never even think of picking it, leave it alone because you will cause even more inflammation. A great makeup artist has the products needed to hide it very well.

5. Wedding night solutions

On that special day you will have tons of makeup on your face. The makeup artist will apply it, a few hours later she will reapply it and during the party you will obviously go a few times to check you makeup and fix some issues.

Professional makeup artist recommend that you use cleansing oil just before you start using your day to day cleanser. It will help you remove all the unnecessary makeup products from your face.

So you see, as a bride, there is no time to rest if you want a perfect day. It all must come together like a puzzle, from your dress, hair, makeup and all the way to the party and the man you love.
