bridal-makeup
On your wedding day, you definitely want to look perfect. Not only will all eyes be on you during the ceremony and after, there are also wedding pictures to worry about. So you would really want to have the best make up to be applied on your face. Before people will speculate on your wedding gowns, shoes and all, they would certainly look at you first with all your make up on. So here’s some tips that we could share our MUAs during the make up session or the wedding preparation. Remember, you make-up has to last through hours of tears, kisses, dancing, champagne drinking, and more.

  • A good way to ensure make-up stays put is to use both cream and powder versions of everything.
  • Spend time applying foundation. If you have an oily skin, always look for an oil-free foundation or one that says ‘non-comedogenic’ on the label.
  • For maximum staying power and glamour, go with a liquid liner, dot liquid liner between your lashes and smudge with a small brush to blend—the technique adds definition without hardness—’then cover liner with a matching powder eye shadow to set the look.
  • To keep the eyebrows up and up, once you’ve added color, comb your brows into place with a clear eyebrow gel or mascara-style brush spritzed with hair spray.
  • Eye shadow colours must suit the skin colour, so daring colours like blue and green must not be used for bride make ups. They tend to give a weird look to the face.
  • If you’ve applied liquid or cream foundation, start with a cream blush, dusting it with translucent powder, then brush on a powder blush.
  • To look naturally flushed—not clownish—choose a blush that’s the color of your chest, palms, or fingertips.
  • Smoothen a bit of foundation on the edges of the lips before adding any color, which also prevents feathering around fine lines.
  • Line and fill in your lips with pencil. Brush on your lipstick and blot with tissue, then reapply
  • .

  • Avoid wearing bright lip colors as they smudge the most. Some reds, for example, bleed a lot more than soft peaches and pinks. It’s just the pigment formulation.

And lastly, feel good. This is your day so take all those worries away!

Choosing the Best Lipstick Shade For Your Skin Tone

lipsticks  for your skin tone

Don’t just go and grab lipstick with whatever color, choose one that would best compliment our skin tones. Sometimes, we are too excited in experimenting different shades of lipstick and we end up frustrated seeing the color mismatch with our complexion.

It is of course important that us, women know the perfect shade of lipstick for our skin color. In order to know the flattering lipstick shade for us, bring your bottom lip down and look at the color. Your lipstick should be a shade that is as close as possible to that color. This is the color that will look best with your complexion.

If you are fair skinned, most likely, plum reds, berry, wine reds with a blue undertone look best for you. Browns -light medium browns or beige’s with pink undertones flatter fair skins. Pink undertone lipsticks compliment fair skin very nicely. However, stay away from those bright, loud pink lipsticks.

The Chinese and those oriental girls with Olive/Yellow skin should choose rich, deep brown reds and deep, dark berry shades. Stay away from orange/reds and pink/reds, they can bring out the yellow undertones in your skin. Try to avoid pink lipstick at all costs.

Meanwhile, medium skin should use rich, deep pinks, deep reds, rich caramel shades, medium brown with yellow or pink undertones, and creamy coffee colored brown lipsticks. Stay away from browns that are very pale. They can make medium skins look ashy and washed out.

Dark skin on the other hand, should try reds with blue undertones. Also, mahogany, deep plums, wine reds, almost any shade of brown, rich, dark, coffee browns flatter the skin. Avoid orange undertones in lipsticks
