Turning yourself into an exquisite masterpiece: Tips for Wedding Makeup San Diego at Valente Hair & Co
1) Waterproof Makeup
You will be doing a lot of crying at your wedding. You don’t want to have eyeliner or mascara that turns runny from your tears. Try using eyeliner and mascara that is waterproof instead. This will prevent it from turning runny and causing you to have those nasty raccoon-looking eyes.
2) Natural Beauty Enhancement
Unless you are having a certain theme for your wedding, you should stick with basic makeup that brings your natural beauty to the forefront. Don’t experiment with exotic colors or looks at your wedding. You can leave the blush and purple lipstick at home. Just use makeup which highlights the beauty you already possess. This is important for your wedding day because your partner needs to appreciate this beauty for what it is. They will be living with it for a very long time.
3) Setting Spray
Wedding days last for hours and run well into the night. This means you will be wearing makeup for a very long time. To make sure it holds strong on your face for the entire time, use a setting spray on your makeup to help it last longer. It may even last well into the night while you’re on your honeymoon.
4) Makeup Bag or Kit
You might want to keep a makeup bag or kit nearby for emergency purposes. You never know when your makeup might get accidentally ruined from food, drink, or weather conditions. A few simple items like lip stain and blotting powder should do the trick in a time of makeup crisis. If you don’t want to carry the bag around, have one of your family members or bridesmaids hold onto it for you.
