You found THE dress! Now, all you need is the gorgeous glow to go with it. Choosing your makeup look for your special day can be a tricky task.
1. Consider the season and time of year.
Are you having a winter wedding or a summer soiree? If it's the middle of winter, you can get away with deep plum lips and a matte powdered face. But, if you're getting married in July, you'll want to lighten your look up a bit.
2. Think about the atmosphere and feel of the venue.
Are you getting married in a ballroom or at the beach? A ballroom calls for sophistication and glamour. A bride at the beach can get away with lip gloss and bronzer.
3. Think about what look suits you on a typical night out.
Do you usually go for a bold lip or smokey eyes? If you normally choose Chapstick and lots of black mascara, go for a similar feel but bump it up a notch with a glossy lip and faux lashes. It's important that you feel comfortable as you walk down the aisle and still look like you.
4. Lastly, acknowledge your fiancé's preference.
Does your groom love when you wear red lipstick or does he think you are prettiest when you wake up in the morning au naturel? Ask him how he envisions you as you walk down the aisle to meet him. After all, your wedding day is about both of you!
