Read This Before You Do Your Own Bridal Makeup

Natural wedding makeup means different things to different brides.

For some brides, this means they get sharp eyeliner and lashes; for others, it is the slightest bit of neutral shadow and a clear lip balm. While a lot of brides book a professional makeup artist, there’s nothing wrong with doing your own makeup. We’re here to help you figure out what works best for you based on your looks and preferences.

Crucial Tips For DIY Natural Makeup

If you want radiant, long-lasting makeup on your wedding day, start planning early.

Get A Skincare Routine

Make sure that you stick to a skincare routine to ensure that your skin is in tip-top shape. You should moisturize, exfoliate, and wear sunscreen. Try to develop a solid day and night routine and stick to it.  Something else you can do to improve your skin is regular facials.

Figure Out What Look You’re Going For

Two of the most important questions you'll have to answer are what tones you want to utilize and what kind of cosmetic look you want to achieve. Do you want a minimal look, something fresh, or barely-there makeup? Or would you like a toned-down version of a hard glam look?

Plan A Color Scheme 

You should research what colors and tones work best with your skin color and undertones. Something else you should consider is your eye color. The colors that make brown eyes pop are different from the colors that work for brown, blue, green, or hazel eyes. Test what colors work for you.

Different cultures also have different makeup trends, so you can do some research on making trends for Asian or Indian weddings, for example.

Pick Your Products

The next step is choosing your products. Look for "long-wear," "long-lasting," and "waterproof" items. Brides often begin getting ready in the early morning and must remain camera-ready until the very end of the day. While you should use SPF as part of your skincare routine, you should avoid using SPF-based products on your wedding day to avoid having a white cast in your photos.
