Makeup - Color Shades & Tips

When it comes to weddings, the bride and her bridal party want to look their best. This means wearing gowns that fit their specific body types, choosing hairstyles that complement, and having the right makeup that makes them look radiant, natural, and never overdone. To look your very best on your special day, we have put together some valuable tips.

Keep in mind that the most important thing you can do for yourself on your wedding day is to take good care of your skin. Make sure you start about six months out from your wedding day by getting on a skin care regimen. If you wait until just a few weeks before your wedding, you might experience a skin outbreak from new products or routines.

With weddings, the best advise is to keep your makeup looking natural. Rather than go overboard with too much color and drama, you want to look beautiful yet simple. To accomplish this, consider the following rules:
  • Choose blush in pink shades if you have light skin and peach or rosy for darker skin

  • A little bit of glimmer is fine but too much will look oily and unnatural in the photographs

  • Pink tones or light peaches are the best for making lips look sensual

  • For eye shadow, dark colors can create a hard look. Therefore, choose lighter colored shadows and then choose a charcoal gray for lining the eyes.

  • After applying eyeliner, always dap on powder to set the liner

  • Always wear waterproof mascara to help avoid black streaks caused by crying and perspiration
When it comes to choosing the best colors, you want to choose shades that complement your skin type, the time of day when the wedding will be held, and theme or formality of the wedding. Now, if you were to read most articles about weddings and makeup color, you would find that they say you can only wear this or that. In truth, you can wear whatever color you like. The key however is keeping it simple. To help accomplish this, consider the following:
  • Keep the tone of your makeup to your skin and not the color of your hair. The darker the skin-tone the deeper and more vibrant the colors should be.

  • Stay away from black and white shades, instead keeping to natural tones

  • If you are unsure of the colors you want to wear or should wear, you can always visit a professional makeup artist or experiment on your own.

  • Choose one base color and then one accent color. If you add too many colors, you will create a clownish appearance.
