Although it's one of the best days of your life, your wedding day can also be one of the longest. In many cases you wake up at the crack of dawn, get your hair and makeup done - and it's go-go-go until you crash in the wee hours of the morning. Glo Skin Beauty's wedding makeup tips will make your bridal makeup last all day as well as help you transition from a day look for the ceremony to a night look for the reception.
The most important step for wedding makeup that lasts is prepping your skin. Skin that is properly hydrated and moisturized will stay more balanced throughout the day, plus mineral makeup adheres more easily to hydrated skin. Prep your lips with a nourishing balm and use a daily moisturizer over your face, neck and décolleté - giving your skin at least 15 minutes to absorb the product before applying makeup.
Don’t forget a light layer of face primer. Primer will even the skin’s surface, helping to smooth over texture and pores while also filling in fine lines. Foundation that is applied right the first time is much easier to touch up and will keep you from looking “cakey” later in the day.
If your skin becomes oily, gently blot away the shine with blotting papers by lightly pressing the sheets against your skin, being careful not to rub or drag away your foundation. If your skin is dry, spritz your face with a facial mist to rehydrate and give your skin a boost.
Many brides like to wear a different wedding dress to the ceremony and reception, but a much more affordable option for changing up your look is to switch up your makeup. Taking your look from day to night is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
