Getting married is supposed to be the best time of your romantic life, but without proper prep it can be something of an organizational nightmare. Every bride deserves to look flawless on their wedding day, whether you’re enlisting the pros or going the DIY route
Before your big day, be sure to cleanse and exfoliate your skin. You want to get rid of any dead skin or flakiness that could make your makeup appear dry or cakey. A smooth base is best to ensure your makeup doesn’t cling to any dry spots.
Soothe dry spots and let your makeup glide over your skin by moisturizing. Dryness will cause your makeup to cake-up or cling to those spots so by moisturizing your reduce the look of obvious dry spots.
To keep your skin from getting dry throughout the day, have lots of water!
A primer will help smooth your skin out, and also will help prolong the wear of your foundation and concealer. Use a primer on your face, and an eye-primer before using your eyeshadows.
If you’re getting married in the summer, then try out your foundation before your big day to see how it wears in that kind of weather. You may notice it fades, gets cakey, or oxidizes throughout the day – in which case, you may want to find a different foundation to wear.
Whilethere are specific skin types (identified from 1-6) for dermatological purposes, makeup companies use their own terminology to describe their makeup colors along the continuum of skin tone. And they aren’t particularly consistent at that. For example, one company might call its lightest foundation “ivory” while another calls the same color “fair.” Thus, in thinking about colors that match your skin tone, it’s best to first think broadly in terms of the range from “fair” to “medium” to “deep.”
