Your wedding day is likely to be the most important and memorable day of your life. Like most brides, you've probably spent countless hours planning every aspect of it, from the big-ticket items right down to the tiniest little detail. Looking your absolute best on your wedding day is one of the most important aspects, and for this reason, most modern brides use the services of a professional makeup artist to make them wedding-ready on the big day.
Wedding makeup differs slightly from regular, everyday makeup. One of the key differences is that it's designed and applied to not only look amazing in the flesh but to also photograph perfectly for your treasured wedding memories. Here are two makeup application ideas that can ensure that you and your wedding photographs are as perfect as you'd like them to be.
1. Airbrush foundation
Foundation is, by both name and definition, the all-important base that the rest of your makeup look is framed by. Creamy, blemish free and radiant foundation is important for every style of bridal look, from earthy and natural to super glam. One of the biggest current trends in wedding foundation is airbrushing.
Airbrushing is a technique that uses a small, electric pump to allow the foundation to be applied in a thin but perfectly even layer on the skin. It's a technique that is commonly used in TV, films, and fashion photography. It provides a smooth and flawless finish that doesn't feel cloying or layered on like a traditional foundation.
Because of the cost of equipment and training, most makeup artists will charge a little extra for airbrush foundation. It's a small extra cost that's well worth paying, especially when you see how absolutely gorgeous you look.
2. False lashes
Not so long ago, false lashes were beauty items that were only worn by stage actresses or models in photo shoots. However, these days, they're a popular and stunning essential for a beautiful, special occasion look. Modern false lashes look natural and luscious and make your eyes the focal point of your makeup look.
False lashes come in a wide variety of shapes, lengths, and styles. They are applied to your lash line using a skin-friendly adhesive and can be peeled off easily at the end of the night. False lashes can achieve a look that even multiple layers of mascara couldn't hope for, and you won't run the risk of the panda eyes look if you get a little tearful as you exchange your vows.
