In Top 10 bridal makeup don’ts we learned more about three of the main mistakes brides do when it comes to makeup. The first three mistakes were: skipping trial makeup, experimenting on your wedding day and applying too heavy foundation. Now, let’s learn more about the remaining seven bridal makeup don’ts.
4. SPF foundation
Wearing a foundation with SPF protection is not suitablefor a wedding. The ingredients in the SPF foundation will cause your face to look stark white in flash photography. So, apt for a traditional foundation on your wedding day. However, if you are having an outdoors wedding apply sunscreen underneath your foundation instead of on top.
5. Too dramatic eye makeup
The best eye makeup is a soft subtle one. Smoky eyes look good but they often cast a shadow around the eyes in photographs. Smoldering eyes also look good in person but not in photographs. Makeup experts advise you to apt for an eyeshadow shade that accentuates your eyecolor. Also you are advised to start your bridal eye makeup with a cream shadow as it will stay longer than powder. Makeup experts also advise you to keep black out of your bridal eye makeup and use it only in a mascara.
6. The eyebrows
Over plucked eyebrows or under plucked eyebrows have no place in a bridal look. Apt for a professional wax for your eyebrows to achieve a well-defined brow shape. Do not forget to wax your eyebrows a week before your wedding to prevent rash appearing on your wedding day. Also, use a brow powder that matches your hair color for a harmonious look.
7. The wrong type of makeup
For such an emotional day, you are advised to use waterproof makeup as an insurance policy if you could not hold back your tears. It is advisable, in case of of tearing, to dab and not wipe your tears. This is the best damage control to do to avoid ruining your makeup.
8. Lipstick and lipgloss
Makeup artists always prefer lip stain to lipstick or lipgloss specially if you are wearing a veil. Lipstick is too shiny for the pictures and lipgloss will stick in the veil and wear off easily.
9. Body color
It is important to even the skin tone of your body with your face by using some body makeup. This gets more and more important if you are wearing a revealing gown.
