The wedding makeup, Mansfield wedding industry experts say, is one of the most important concerns of would-be brides. You want to look fresh, natural, stunning—not necessarily perfect, but simply the best version of yourself.
Here are top five tips on achieving the right wedding-day look through makeup, Mansfield experts reveal:
- Start with clean, clear and healthy skin.
Zits sprouting because of pre-wedding stress? Stop them in their tracks. Remember, makeup should only work to highlight your beauty, so make sure your skin looks fabulous even before you put on any cosmetics.
This is the time to boost your skincare protocol. Invest in regular facials a few weeks before the big day. Try the Intense Recovery Facial, to revitalise and hydrate your complexion. It also comes with a relaxing massage for a total package. The result: Glowing, supple skin. Or, why not go for a couple’s session with the Classic Facial for Him and Her? They’re customised according to what your skin exactly needs for the wedding. Plus, it’s a great excuse to catch up on some bonding time with the fiancé in between the busy preparations.
- Try it out.
Your wedding day may be full of surprises, but it shouldn’t include what your makeup should look like. Schedule a wedding makeup trial session with your chosen makeup artist. After the demo, don’t clean your face yet. Try to schedule other activities such as dining out or dancing with the girls to see how the makeup really looks after a full-packed day, which is what your wedding is expected to be.
- Don’t try to be someone else.
It’s a good idea to show your makeup artist some references so your glam team will have a more accurate idea of the theme that you’re going for. But don’t expect to be looking exactly like the other girls in your research. The best look for a bride is simply the polished, best version of herself. You want people (and your groom) to appreciate your beauty, not your lipstick or eyeshadow.
- Be a girl scout.
Pack a small retouch kit and have one of the ladies in your entourage hold it for you. The kit should contain at least the following: pressed powder, lipstick, lip balm, facial tissue, and maybe a blusher and an eyeliner to use until the evening reception.
- Relax and have fun!
The best tool in your beauty arsenal is your genuine, heartfelt smile. Wedding jitters are normal, but make sure you are filled with positive vibes and good energy—as a bride, that will be your gift to yourself, to your groom and to all the people who are sending you their best wishes during that special day.
