|Here are some great Make-up tips for any brides to be.
Start off by applying a good primer which works as a base for your foundation. It forms a barrier between your skin and make-up so that the make-up stays out of your pores and the colors stay on longer. A good Primer would be M·A·C Primer, which is essentially a skin conditioner; it evens out your skin before the application of foundation and concealer. Apply a water-based foundation over it as it is light and does not feel like your face is being caked with make-up. Dab some loose powder on it to ensure it stays. If you want to conceal any dark spots or blemishes, blend some concealer onto the spot before applying foundation.
Eyes, they say are the windows to your soul so pay extra attention to accentuate them on your big day. To start out with shape your eyes softly with eyeliner, avoid very harsh lines; instead opt for a natural look. Curl your lashes, by holding a curl lasher over them for about five seconds and then apply two coats of good Mascara like L’Oreal’s Double Extension Carbon Black mascara. This will ensure that your lashes look longer and will open your eyes out giving them more depth. If you like, you could get artificial lashes attached for the ceremony to ensure that you peepers look great.
When choosing an eye shadow, avoid using trendy colors, which are in now, they may look great but are just going to scream outdated ten years down the line in pictures. Similarly avoid very bright colors, opt for the classic neutrals and pastel hues which not only look great in photographs but are extremely elegant in person as well. Keep the eye make-up simple by taking a shadow in three compatible colors. Apply the lightest just below your brow bone, and the medium shade over the rest of the lid. Blend with your fingers where the two colors meet. Now apply the darker color in the crease of your eye and gently blend to give your eye some depth and definition.
Choose a natural color for your lips, nothing too dark and flashy. Use a lip liner if your lips need the definition. If you wish to make your face appear slimmer, avoid the liner as it makes your lips look narrow. Fuller lips on the other hand make the face look slimmer. Make sure that your lipstick and eye shadow are compatible. Don’t overdo on the glossy bit of the lipstick.
