Makeup tips for bride
Go for a bright lip shade
Choosing a suitable lip shade is really important as your lips and eyes will be the highlighted features of your face. So if you choose a nude, pale or neutral lip shade then you will look dull in your wedding photographs which you obviously don’t want. You should choose a brighter lip shade to match with your bridal makeup.
Don’t forget to apply a primer
Primer is something which is the essence of your makeup and one of the base makeup products which are necessary for a flawless look. When you begin with your makeup first of all wash your face and moisturize it. Then apply a primer over the moisturizer. Doing it before the foundation will help you to hide your flaws or skin imperfections. It also help to hold your makeup for a long time and gives a fresh appearance throughout.
Choose low maintenance makeup products
On your wedding, you don’t want to keep checking that whether your mascara, eyeshadow or liner are still at their place or not. More than holding a mirror after every half an hour you would want to enjoy the most special moments of your life. Bridal eye makeup should look good consistently. So buy waterproof makeup products so that even if you feel emotional and cry a bit on your wedding your makeup doesn’t go away but continues to shine. Using a creamy eyeshadow will also be a good option.
Extend your makeup to the shoulders and neck
Your skin tone should look the same. If you apply makeup only on your face and your neck and shoulders reflect a different skin tone then it would give a bad appearance. So while getting your makeup done take care of applying some makeup to your neck and shoulders. Your skin tone should match to give a natural and smooth look.
Choose some already done makeup styles to use as reference
Choosing a makeup style for reference by using its image or video may help you get your desired look. This way you will know beforehand how to proceed and what exact look do you want.
Take a trial round
You don’t want to spoil your wedding makeup look, right? So if you are going for something trendy which you have never tried before than you should probably take a trial round before. This will ensure whether that particular style suits you or not. Also if there needs to be any correction then you can fix it. This will help you to know what exactly you need to do on your wedding day and will save you from any faux pas.
Choose your makeup artist with utmost care

Don’t use a foundation which contains SPF!
Although caring for your skin and protecting it from UV rays is must but technically on your wedding day you aren’t going to be under the sun for a long time.
