What should you Avoid for Your Makeup?
I like to say that there are no rules when it comes to bridal makeup, but there are definitely some guidelines that I recommend all of my bridal clients follow.
First – don’t go looking for something that you normally wouldn’t do. A good example is airbrush makeup! So many brides come in for their trial and want to try out airbrush because they have read that airbrush is the way to go for their wedding day. The truth is that airbrush gives a very specific look and it really isn’t for everyone. I usually recommend a bride try out a makeup that is an enhanced version of what they would wear out when going to a party or an event. At the end of the day, they will feel comfortable and not have any ‘makeup regrets’ when they look back at their wedding photos 20 years down the line.
Second – stay away from any overly obvious makeup trends of the moment. A good example is the 70’s brides who all wore bright blue eye-shadow on their eyelids. As soon as you see their wedding pics you can immediately pin point the time based on the style of their makeup.
The last tip I give my brides is to avoid wearing a heavy pair of false lashes. When lashes are super dense and dark it makes for a very unnatural look, not to mention the heaviness and how uncomfortable they can be to wear all day and night! I like to apply false lash styles that are more natural, they taper just as your own lashes do and they have spacing between them so that they aren’t a solid band of black lashes. These kinds of lash styles look good both in person and in photographs.
