2. Opt for your wedding makeup artist beforehand
If you want a wedding makeup artist to do your makeup on that day of your life which you can say is ‘The Most Important’ day then you must do a thorough research before your wedding day arrives. It’s because the MUA should understand your vision perfectly that you’ve for your bridal look. And, it needs time to let that happen!
So, give him or her that time to recreate your expectations accurately. Also, don’t forget to decide on a backup wedding makeup artist even to be prepared for any kind of emergency.
3. Schedule a trial makeup session
Nowadays most of the bridal packages come with a free trial makeup session! But, even if yours doesn’t offer anything like this then you must ask your makeup artist to do a similar look for any other event that you are likely to attend. It would help you to know how it looks on you quite well in advance. Also, it will certainly help you to suggest any tweak to him or her that you want in your makeup.
4. Keep multiple options open
You should keep a couple of makeup looks accessible for you as there should be always a backup plan if the initial look doesn’t turn out as it is planned. But, if it tempts you to go all out and try every possible trend then wait! It is not the correct approach.
It’s because your wedding day is definitely a special day for you and you should stick to what has always worked for you. It’s the best option! So, decide on such eyeliners and shadows that have always worked for you just in case you end up in a need for some reliable fall-back options.
5. Consider the weather
Yes! The ambience and the weather where you are getting married matters a lot when it comes to the wedding makeup. For example, if you’re having a beach wedding then you should always avoid heavy duty makeup which would otherwise look garish or smudged. And, in such a scenario, don’t forget a lot of setting spray to hold the look as it is!
However, if you are getting married during the winter then you should take care of the fact that you’re doubling up on the moisturizer. Also, you must go for a dewy look so that it doesn’t look too parched and dull at the end of the day.
