Waterproof your makeup.
As a matter of fact, while you have this idea in mind already, you might as well make sure that you go out of your way to make everything else in your makeup kit waterproof as well. The reason behind this is pretty simple and practical. You might end up sweating and getting your makeup watered down from the humidity during the day of the wedding. You need to know for sure that your makeup will really be able to last it for an entire day without touch-ups as much as possible. Although there will be times wherein you will need to touch up that makeup and although there is an absolute need for this especially when it comes to the lipstick, the thing is, you will end up faring so much better if you have waterproof makeup to begin with. There are a lot of makeup lines that capitalize off of their waterproofing abilities and this is something that you ought to try to research or find out about as much as possible. You want to look seamless and look almost perfect when your wedding photographer Essex aims that camera at you and the kind of makeup choices you make will turn out to be heavily dependent on that.
Give your makeup enough time to set.
You can’t rush through the prepping process. The bridal makeup and getting ready session should be taken in stride and should be taken with a flourish. It would be next to impossible for you to go ahead and get that done if you only have roughly around an hour or so to prep for it when it all comes down to it. You need to give yourself at least roughly around a couple of hours or so to get this prepped up the right way. You need to take this seriously as much as you possibly can. This is not the type of thing that you would want to just take off handedly. Take as much time as you need. Beauty is not the type of thing that can be rushed at any point in time and the earlier you get that figured out, the better it will turn out to be for you so far.
Say no to over tanning.
Tanning is great and can be great for you on any other regular day but it will turn out to be a really bad idea during the main wedding day. You need to understand this and you need to prep for this as much as possible. If you want to have that gentle beachy glow, then a little bit of bronzer on the side should be more than enough to get the trick done. Don’t over tan. Remember the fact that it tends to get darker over time and that it can end up with you looking like an orange lump and that is never a great bridal look on you or on anyone, for that matter. Your wedding photographer Essex will highly advise you against this and so will your makeup artist.
Don’t do the mono tan.
Contouring is the best way to go. If there are certain parts of your face and your body that you would like to conceal or minimize the exposure for, go for a darker shade and highlight those that you would like to showcase. It really is something as simple as that.
