Top 7 Steps To Long-Lasting Makeup
- Face Mask The Night Before
Hydration is pretty much key in life, but especially when it comes to your skin. You should always moisturize it and shower in face masks, especially when getting ready for some bigger events. This time remember to apply your face mask the night before your wedding, and also make sure to exfoliate your skin.
Use any kind which suits your skin type, and make sure it feels nourishing. Also, go for something which you’ve used in the past, and what you know won’t break you out.
- Use The Right Kind Of Primer
The day of your wedding follow your typical skincare morning routine. After that prep and prime your skin.
Women who have dry skin type should use a hydrating, nourishing, and radiant boosting primer. Women who have oily skin should use something mattifying since this will keep their oils in place.
Apply your favorite product with your fingertips and dab it in. Don’t make swiping motions since this will partially remove the product.
After it sinks into your pores proceed further with your makeup application.
- Medium Buildable Foundation
Foundation is very important since it needs to photograph well. And the best choice should be something which has medium-buildable coverage.
Sheer foundations will look uneven, too natural, and they may look a bit unflattering on some skin types, especially if you are trying to cover up some redness or discoloration.
On the other hand, heavy and full coverage can feel too thick on the skin. It can also look too cakey at one point during the day.
This is why it is crucial to stick with something medium, and only add up on top if and where needed.
- Loads Of Setting Powder
Once your foundation is blended now is time to set it in place. The best way to do this is by applying your favorite loose powder on top. It can be any kind, as long as you are satisfied with its finish.
Many women prefer a matte outcome since it looks best when taking pictures.
A smooth matte finish will allow you to smile, take pictures, and it won’t crease.
You can also leave a bit of powder to some places in order to bake.
Once it bakes your oils will be under control, and your makeup will stay in place.
- Subtle Eyeshadow
Sometimes less is more, and this rule should apply to your wedding makeup. Doing a simple neutral brown eye with some glitter pearls is a definite win!
You can also do a smoked out brown eyeliner since a big and thick winged liner won’t look right.
Stay away from black eyeshadow, and don’t do smokey eye since it isn’t really ”bridal friendly”.
Finish off the look by adding white to your waterline, as well as some light brown on your lower lash line.
- Lash Extensions Instead Of Glue-On Lashes
Go for lash extensions since these are way more sturdy than your glue-on lashes. These can look great in the pictures, and are suitable for every eye shape! You can get them done at a certified salon, and you can ask for a simpler or more voluminous version.
Lash extensions won’t glue off at any given point, and they will survive even if you shed a tear!
The best part is that you don’t need to apply any mascara on top of them. Lash extensions are voluminous and pitch-black on their own, ideal for taking pictures!
Oh and also, they can last for up to 3 weeks! This means that they will cover the entire length of your honeymoon.
- Liquid Lipstick
Lastly, finish off your makeup look by going for a liquid matte lipstick. This lipstick has way more coverage than your sheer, satin or regular matte lipsticks do.
You should go for nude, light peach, light brown, or pink – based on your preference.
Make sure you moisturize and exfoliate your lips before you apply your lipstick since it will look a lot better once dried down. There won’t be those fine lines or wrinkles in the lips, and they will look a lot plumper.
You will easily eat, kiss, sing, and drink throughout the entire night, without the need to redo the application!
