Wedding makeup is perhaps among the most significant aspects of the whole look, both for bride or groom and guests. It must withstand the challenge of time, tears of happiness, as well as possible dressings and movements. Well, and of course an energetic after-party dance! Below we will tell you how to create the look that will remain flawless all day, as well as solve other mysteries of makeup durability and tell you how to keep it fresh and beautiful throughout the whole celebration. Even if you plan to work with a makeup artist, you still need to pay attention to these important details.
Skin Prep is Key
We will not get tired of talking about it — skin preparation is the most significant stage that will determine the success of the makeup. For the long-lasting one, we advise you not to limit yourself to cleansing and moisturizing, but also to add exfoliation. In this way, liquid textures will lay down better on the skin. Besides, primer is another important step. Most importantly, pick the one that suits your skin type.
Many people mistakenly think that permanent makeup consists of a thick layer of foundation. But this is not the case at all! Your main assistant is a concealer. It is better to choose reliable and proven products for masking spot imperfections and limit yourself to a relatively light layer of a tried-and-tested foundation that suits your skin.
Setting is Crucial
A good powder is another important companion for a beautiful and lasting look. Try baking for under-eye areas and imperfections on the skin. Just make sure to use the right powder for your skin tone so you don't get any surprises in flash photos! Blend dry textures well including contouring for the same purpose. You can also further set everything with a setting spray.
Eyeshadow base is not a myth, it's actually a working product! It makes the shadows more durable and vivid. It is especially important to use a shadow base if you plan to wear shimmery textures. You can also replace the base with a good concealer.
Try a Tubing Mascara
This type of mascara is an amazing find. Its idea is that the mascara is not washed off with water or tears, but is removed in the form of tubes from your lashes under the action of warm water. An essential product for emotional events!
Use Lip Liner
Since long-lasting matte lipsticks are no longer in trend especially for a wedding look, we suggest replacing your regular base lip product with a long-lasting lip pencil. Any product can be applied on top: from gloss to tint.
Of course, it's impossible to lock in lip products or powder for the whole day. It's key to keep miniature products close by to maintain the look. A particularly useful product would be mattifying and oil-absorbing tissues, which will replace powder and speed up the process of makeup touch-ups and allow you to spend more time with your nearest and dearest!
