Do I have to have trials for all of my bridesmaids or bridal party?
With so many different makeup looks to consider it can feeling like an overwhelming task choosing a bridal makeup look that is right for you.
To help make things a little easier, I’ve put together some helpful tips and things to consider when choosing a makeup look for your wedding day.
Pick a look you're comfortable with....
Wedding makeup is one area of beauty that’s not particularly trend-led so don’t feel you have to buy into all the latest beauty looks just because they’re the style of the moment.
“Wedding makeup is about choosing a look that you are comfortable with and that enhances your features rather than being overly concerned about being 'on-trend',”
Drink Lots of Water Before the Big Day.....
This beauty tip is one to follow all year round, but it's even more important as your wedding day approaches. "Hydrated skin will allow for the best application of makeup," Miglino says.
Doing your own wedding makeup can add an extra element of stress to your day, so if you feel you’ll be in a flap, we’d recommend calling in a professional.
Hiring a pro will take away a potential stress on the day. Have you ever tried applying liquid liner with shaking hands? Not recommended.
“If you are able to hand the job over to someone you trust and you like their work and you can also afford it, I definitely recommend doing so.''
“Having your make-up done is a perk. Enjoy it! It adds a special occasion feel as it’s not something you do every day.”
Arrange a trial makeup session with them. Not only will this help you to decide exactly how you want your wedding makeup, it’s also a chance to check that you gel with the MUA you’ve chosen. They’ll be with you on one of the biggest days of your life, so you want to get on well and feel comfortable around them. We suggest holding your makeup trial around three months before your wedding – before things get really hectic, but hopefully once you’ve got your outfit and hair planned, so you know all three work together.
Go to your makeup trial prepared with ideas of how you want to look so your MUA has an idea of your wedding makeup vision. Take a photo of your outfit too, so they can work out your overall vibe for the day.
