Being responsible for your wedding day makeup can be an intimidating task. But many brides are choosing the DIY method when it comes to their makeup. DIY-ing your makeup will save you time and money since you already know what looks the best on you. We have gathered some of the best makeup secrets to help you look radiant on your big day.

Perfect Look

When it comes to creating your perfect wedding day look it is always a good idea to keep it simple. Often times brides get too excited on their wedding day and will try out a new look. Doing this is not a good idea. You want to look like the best version of yourself on your big day. Which is why you should not choose to try out a new look.

Home Trail

Do a makeup trial a couple months before your wedding. This will ensure that you are able to achieve the look you want. Wearing the look for a day will let you know how the products will wear on your skin and if you will need any touch-ups throughout the day. Make sure that you take a picture of your look in different types of lighting. This will ensure that you are picking out the makeup that works the best in all types of lighting.

Long-lasting and Waterproof

Look for makeup products that are long-lasting and waterproof. Choosing these types of products will ensure that your face looks good all day long. Plus wearing waterproof mascara or eyeliner will mean that you can tear up without worrying about your makeup running.

Skin Prep

Many times brides will overlook their skincare preparations. You will want to create the best canvas for your makeup. To achieve the perfect skin glow get a facial before your wedding day. Then make sure that you moisturize your skin before you apply any makeup on your big day. This will help prevent your makeup from settling into your fine lines and wrinkles.

Stay Away from Certain Products

Many products out on the market are made to be anti-aging, high-definition or SPF. But reaching for these makeup products on your big day can be a mistake. Makeup that has SPF can cause your skin to look white in pictures that were taken with a flash. While anti-aging or HD makeup works great in small amounts, it can be easy to overdo it. This can cause the makeup particles to act like little mirrors in your picture, that can create a ghostly pale face.

Give Yourself Time to Do your Makeup

Rushing through your makeup on your wedding day is the last thing you should do. In fact, you should anticipate your makeup routine to take longer than it normally does. Scheduling extra time for makeup will ensure that you are able to achieve your best makeup look without feeling rushed.

Prevent Shiny Face

There is nothing worse than having a shiny face in all your wedding pictures. To avoid this use a translucent powder on your T-zone. This powder should be applied with a fluffy brush after you have finished your makeup.

Tie Everything Together

To finish off your wedding day look, use a makeup setting spray. This will make sure that your makeup is able to last throughout the entire day with minimal touchups.
