Many brides don't realize they need more makeup than their everyday routine. Even natural makeup needs to be amped up to avoid looking washed out in photos. Celebrity and Bridal Makeup Artist, Danika Lamb, offers her tips on how to look your beautiful best on your wedding day.
Do a full trial run of your hair and makeup before the big day.
Take pictures with and without flash, indoors and out,
to ensure you like your look in all elements.
Set up your makeup station in an area with natural sunlight
—avoid artificial lighting to get a true color representation
of your makeup shades.
Exfoliate with a gentle scrub the night before or morning
of the wedding; this will allow makeup to go on nice and smooth,
resulting in that sought after "bridal glow.” Moisturize and
then apply BASE Smooth & Matte Primer to help keep your
makeup in place from ceremony to reception.
For less mess, apply foundation AFTER your eye makeup.
Eye shadow, liner, smudging and blending could make your
foundation look messy. Eyeshadow base and waterproof
mascara are secret weapons on your big day.
Add a couple individual lashes on the outer corner of each eye.
This will make your eyes pop, but still look natural.
To camouflage undereye circles and brighten eyes,
apply Undereye Concealer before AIRpod Foundation.
BUILD THE COVERAGE
For best results with AIRpod makeup, apply with a light touch
and slowly build your coverage. You can always touch up if needed.
Apply AIRpod blush on the apples of your cheeks
and sweep towards the temple for a natural flush.
Apply highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones, under the
brow bone and on the inner corner of the eyes for subtle
shimmer and that unforgettable bridal glow.
If you’re worried about shine, set your makeup with Invisible Difference Finishing Powder, but be careful not to overdo it. Apply powder with a large fluffy brush (tap off any excess) paying special attention to the t-zone.
