Makeup guides are giving us a lot of examples how we should look in the club or in the office but when it comes to a wedding it is a mess. Fashion designers scream that we should be bold and brave with colors, while fashion magazines encourage us to use earth tones and natural look. If you are going to be a bride this year, we will help you choose a wedding makeup without going insane. We know that wedding day is organized because of love and photos, especially because of photos, so every bride should look amazing in her dress and makeup.
Some magazines recommend skipping new things on your wedding day, but we completely disagree with this. Go wild and try new makeup at least because you probably don’t wear a long white dress every day. White is a gorgeous color but it can’t be easily combined with a lot of colors. Try to define what you want to be highlighted and what to be hidden. For example, if you want the attention to go from your nose to your lips, try darkening lipsticks. They are amazing by the way and you will see them all over in 2018.
Natural wedding makeup
If you really want to be with natural makeup on your wedding, go with it but don’t forget that on wedding photos it looks too plain. You can use pink for your cheeks and eyes. Rose blush looks fantastic on white cheeks and gives the expression that the bride is a little naïve girl. Of course, this is not for every once and you should try it at least once before. Another great shadow for brides is brown or champagne one. Additional advice is to swipe a little bronzer on your eyes and cheeks, too. If you want to add some dramatic look, add a lot of mascara or be bold and get longer eyelashes. They will make earth tones highlighted and your face will look sinless. If you choose this look, you have to combine it with natural lips. The lip line is allowed but transparent. Lipstick can be brown, beige or mauve.
Having the idea that wedding photos are what is left when the wedding day is over, it is completely normal to want to look gorgeous on them. On my wedding, we have a traditional photographer and photo booth service. In Singapore, it is pretty cool to have a photo booth at your event. We have hired Ubersnap photo booth and it was extremely fun. All the guests took at least 3, 4 photos in it and left them in a photo album for us. My GIF photos are wild and I will be proud to show them to my kids after years and explain that I was young and fun in the past. My makeup was more bold and aggressive.
Aggressive makeup looks better on photos.
It is totally up to you. I chose dark black shadows, dark lipstick and a lot of bronzers. Some people would say I have too much makeup but the reality was that I was glowing inside, so I have to glow outside, too. Peach blush is a popular choice, too if you don’t want to go with a bronzer. Actually, It doesn’t matter still you have to put something on hose cheeks or you will look too plain. Although this day is not in general about colors, they will define it as a good one or bad one so be careful. On the other hand, if you have ever wanted to have a wedding in blue color, be brave and add some blue feathers or blue pearls. Find a good blue wine and your photos will be remarkable.
