Bridal Makeup Dos and Donts

Your wedding day is finally here, a day you've dreamed about your entire life. Both you and your parents have been long expecting this day so naturally, every little detail has to be perfect, after all, you're going to be the most gorgeous bride in the world! There is obviously a lot of preparation that goes into this day, from choosing the perfect gown to selecting your favorite location for the wedding, from hair and makeup to picking the most amazing menu possible. In this blog post we'll focus on what you should and should not do in terms of makeup for your big day.

A Balanced Diet To Complement Your Bridal Makeup

Before talking about actually applying the makeup, you must understand that your diet in the weeks preceding the wedding is going to play a big role. Maintain a proper balanced diet, comprising all the macro elements like carbs, proteins, fat (yes, a little bit of fat is also important); as well as the microelements like iron, iodine, zinc, copper, etc. A healthy diet should be coupled with abundant water intake as well, that will eventually help you flush out the toxins out of your system, giving you a healthy and glowing skin. No heavy makeup can bring that natural glow to your face like a good diet can.

Makeup Trial Sessions Are Important

If you want your makeup to be absolutely perfect on your wedding day, you must do at least one(if not several) trial sessions beforehand. During the trial sessions, analyze and discuss all the minute details of your look with your wedding makeup artist. Check whether the look you have imagined for yourself works with your wedding attire or not, whether the look is suiting your personality or going overboard. Your look for the day should be as perfect as possible, so you can never be too prepared. 

Waterproof  Makeup Is A Must

Naturally, this day will be hugely emotional, and even if you're not really the emotional type, small tears of joy and excitement can appear when you least expect them. That is why, waterproof makeup is a must to make sure everything stays intact throughout the day. 

Don't Neglect The Rest Of The Body
While you have applied a decent coat of makeup on you face, please don't neglect the neck region as well as hands and whatever parts are exposed. You're going for a balanced uniform look and only applying makeup to the face cand give an awkward look, and we definitely don't want that!

Of course, many of these issues will be discussed with your makeup artist, so make sure you're choosing a really good one. If you're unsure with what makeup artist to go, do separate trial sessions with different makeup artists to be certain you pick the right one for you. After all, this day is too important and no stone should be left unturned!
