There’s a lot of pressure to look your best on the big day, but sometimes looking your best just means looking like yourself! If you don’t wear much (or any) makeup on a regular basis, taking control of your makeup application might make you feel more comfortable with bridal makeup. To create a look that feels like you, follow these DIY tips for applying your own makeup on your wedding day.
And lastly, practice your complete look. Once you have all of your products, do a trial run of your full face makeup, timing yourself to see how much time you need to schedule for makeup on your wedding day. Wear the makeup for a full day to see how it holds up and take pictures to make sure everything photographs true to color.
If the idea of DIY bridal makeup intimidates you more than hiring a makeup artist, you may want to give the professional route a try! You can always book a makeup trial a few weeks out from your date to explain to your artist the style you’re going for. Be sure to tell them about your skin type so they can create a customized look just for you.
