Makeup. I used to hate it but now I kind of like it in small doses. Until recently, I never understood the mothers who ran after their soon-to-be-married daughters with an attache case full of cosmetics, screaming, “Just a little more foundation! Please! I’ll do anything!”
While weddings are a time of joy, new beginnings, and fellowship, they are often first and foremost a time of many photographs. These photographs are meant to be timeless…to show future generations how stunning the bride and groom looked on their special day. Which is why matrimonial makeup is so often designed to look as natural as possible, like so:
Avoid glittery or dewy looks – these are not very receptive for photographs and you may come out looking greasy.
For your makeup to look good in your photos, it must be completely matte and in neutral tones, brides usually prefer a little color. Pastels look soft and pretty, but avoid glitter, shimmer and frosted eyeshadows.
Don’t apply white or black eye shadow.
If you are doing your own makeup, see a beauty consultant and purchase your make up at least 3 months in advance. Then practice until you’ve got the perfect makeup.
