Wedding season is finally upon us! Certainly weddings are one of the most important events in the life of a lady, so preparing for them needs proper care and serious consideration. When choosing a dress, we can travel to the other end of the world, while creating the perfect menu we may taste tens of different dishes, and you’re definitely going to have to visit a lot of parties, so you can choose which is the perfect restaurant for your occasion. Makeup is no different! You have to take it very seriously and think about each and every detail!

Make sure your cosmetics crew is with you the whole day of the celebration, this way you won’t have to worry about anything, since you can leave it to the professionals. On the eve of the big day it’s crucial that you don’t fill yourself up with liquids (like alcohol and even tea), this way you can ensure that your face won’t have any early morning swelling when you wake up (sometimes even patches aren’t able to help with it). Stay away from facial peels, tanning salons and any experimental cosmetics on the day prior to your wedding, you never know what can cause an allergic reaction, so it’s always better to prepare in advance! It’s recommended that you visit a professional cosmetologist so they can beauty up your face with a mask, moisturize and energize it, as well as do a light lift if needed. Before you chose your final makeup with a professional, always make sure to do a trial one with them prior, even a place with great reviews can sometime just not fit in well in the big picture, so making sure you know how it’s going to look and you’re satisfied with it before the big day is important. While you’re trying out your planned big day look, you can also see what else might make your day even brighter.

A bride’s makeup needs to have a natural look to it, as well as a persistence to not come off while the wedding procession is in action. A silicone base and a fixing powder are going to come in handy for the natural look part, as well as a super durable water-resistant tonal cream that should help as well. There is this type of applied makeup type that’s called AERO. The tonal components are applied with a special spray pen, which gives it a light, natural and a spotless view, while particles of silicone, which are already in the mix, make sure your look stays durable throughout the day. When choosing eye liner, you need to understand that that bride can’t have a nighttime makeup on, while at the same time her eyes need to be highlighted and looking gorgeous since there is going to be a lot of photos shot and even more videos taken of the huge event. False lashes or individual lashes are both great on emphasizing the look of your eyes, just make sure that they look as natural as possible. You have to take into account the possibility that your lipstick is literally going to evaporate, since the amount of wedding toasts you’re going to be a part of will be insurmountable. I’m going to recommend using durable lipsticks or pigments. I’d also recommend not using glossy shines or bright colored lipstick, since your groom won’t be able to keep up with you! A wedding is truly one of the brightest and most touching moments in life, don’t forget to cherish it! I hope that my advice was helpful and eases your preparation for this wonderful celebration!
