Ready for your big day?
Wedding season is fast approaching and if you thinking about doing your own makeup for special occasion with the added pressure of been the bride then you want to be with knowledge ahead of your day.
Here are some makeup tips that you need to know.
BE SMOOTH :
Exfoliate ones or twice per week, especially near to your big day to ensure smooth skin for your big day. Dermalogica, Emma Hardie, SIsley, Body shop aloe gentle exfoliate my preference.
IGNORE THE TRENDS :
Go with a look that enhances your natural beauty rather then trend inspired.
Go for matte foundation on your wedding day (unless you have a very dry skin) that will prevent shine for the pictures.
Giorgio Armani-face fabric
Clarins- ever matte skin
Stila- oil free foundation
Mac -oil free foundation
Maybelline- Dream Matte mouse
Conceal the inner corners of your eyes then blend so it doesn’t look too heavy.
If you prefer natural look go for the lipstick that is a few shades darker then you natural lip colour.
Many lipstick shades are available to all skin tone.
EASY ON THE SHIMMERY EYE SHADOWS
Think about the texture- be strategic with shimmer and shine as it could look too much for the picture. You can mix matte with shimmery colours to tone down the shimmer.
POWDER YOUR NOSE:
Translucent powder is more efficient at hiding shine then blotting paper , but taking both with you is essential especially if you have very oily skin.
Mac powder prep and prime
CRY-PROOF MAKEUP :
Worried about crying? Apply waterproof mascara to upper lashes only and waterproof eyeliner on the lower lashes softly on waterline and blend to define.
YSL – waterproof eyeliner
Dior – waterproof mascara
Sisley- waterproof eye pencil
BROW HOW-TO :
Subtly fill your brows with powder and groom them with a brow brush to give your overall look finish and definition. Chose the brow powder like your hair on the brow.
BALANCE YOUR LOOK:
You need a little more makeup to show in the picture , but you want to look amazing in real life you need to strike a happy balance .

I had a chance to be working for editorial and video yesterday so I would like to share the day and products that I used for lovely model. She was only 16 years old and very beautiful lovely girl. Here is Isabelle from models 1 pretty gorgeous and required very little in terms of prep.
I did do a good face massage to get the circulation going and drain any puffiness. I wanted to keep skin light and clear, to keep the focus on the eyes.
Here’s how she looks after makeup. I will point out that I spent more time doing soft smokey eyes than the other parts of the face.
Here is the products that I used to create the look.
Mac cosmetics lipstick
What do you think? I love how pure and simple this look is it.
I think it’s lovely look and very wearable even day time. Proud that model liked so much that didn’t took off, she was ready for her dinner out…
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.
