The Top 3 Wedding Make-Up Tips to Prepare You for Your Big Day

So, he finally popped the question, and you couldn’t be more excited about your Big Day. In fact, you’ve been waiting for this moment since you were a little girl prancing around the house in your mother’s heels. But now reality has kicked in and it’s time to start getting your wedding make-up style right. While you may have bought your dress and booked the hall, DJ, catering, and church, you still have one more very important thing to do, which is to get the style of your wedding make-up right. At Face to Face Beauty & Make-up Design School, we believe that every bride deserves to look flawless on her wedding day, and with that said, we’ve put together a few important tips to get your prepared for your Big Day.

#1 Go for a Pre-Wedding Facial a Few Days before Your Big Day

If you’ve not been looking after your skin, now is the time start. You want your skin to glow, and look smooth and healthy. One way to get this right is to book a facial at least a week before your Big Day. Getting a facial can make a huge difference to your skin’s texture, and it can also greatly help you create the best canvas for your wedding make-up. While we’re on the subject of looking after your skin, get your teeth whitened too. Once you’ve had a good cleaning, try to avoid coffee, red wine, or anything that will leave your teeth stained before your “I dos”.

#2 The Style of Your Make-Up Should Complement Your Personality

It’s all very well to sport bold orange lips, high arches, and smokey eyes because you saw it on the runways, but one of the most important things that most brides overlook is that they should look like the best version of themselves. It’s important to keep in mind that just because the model looked drop-dead gorgeous wearing a cocktail of colours, it does not mean that it’s going to look the same on you.

#3 Have a Pre-Wedding Make-Up Trial with a Professional Make-Up Artist

While it may feel good keeping up with all the latest bridal runway trends, your wedding day is not the day to experiment with new looks and styles. Just like having a pre-wedding shoot to test out your photographer, it’s of vital importance to do the exact same for your wedding make-up and hair. This is one of the most stressful and exciting days of your life, so you want to know that on your wedding day, your make-up and hair is going to look flawless.

Whether your look is edgy, boho, natural, or somewhere in between, the trick to turning heads is to go for a pre-wedding facial, schedule a trial make-up run or two, get your teeth whitened, and sport a style that brings out the best version of you.
