With these tips and easy instructions, you can create a wedding makeup look in no time. So read on as we take you through a wedding makeup model curated for anyone and everyone!
Step 1: Skincare
A flawless base application can only be achieved after a good skincare regime right before you dig into your makeup brush set and start applying products. So, begin by cleansing your face and neck with a mild face wash and follow-up with a toner to refresh your skin. Also, apply a generous coat of moisturiser and top it off with a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.
Based on your skin type and concerns, you can prepare your own regime and apply skincare products ten minutes before makeup. This will help the skin to absorb the goodness of the skincare products.
Step 2: Base Makeup
Now that you have reached the most vital part of this makeup, let’s take you through the very important step. Use a primer to create a smooth base so that you can set the rest of the makeup. Opt for one that minimises pores so that you can achieve a smooth-looking skin texture. Remember to apply the primer with your fingers for a natural finish.
Next, get the best foundation for your skin colour, coverage, and type. With the help of a long and flat foundation brush, spread the foundation evenly onto your face and neck. Next, grab hold of a good correcting concealer to even out pigmentation and blemishes. Now, to keep your makeup in place, apply loose powder over the face. Press it firmly into the skin with a round brush.
Step 3: Eye Makeup
Whether it is your wedding day or that of a close friend’s, some drama to your eyes is a must. You can achieve this by creating the perfect winged eyeliner. But first, apply a pop of colour to your eyelids. You could mix shades matching your bridal lehenga and apply them to the eyelids side-by-side to create an ombre finish. Or use a single or a combination of shimmery or metallic eyeshadows, creating a charming bridal look.
After eyeshadow application, line your waterline with a white kajal and curl up your lashes with an eyelash curler to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. For a finishing and volumising effect, make sure you layer on multiple coats of mascara or put on a pair of good quality false eyelashes.
Step 4: Cheek Makeup
Bring definition to your face by contouring your cheeks and jawline with a warm-toned bronzer. Apply the product to the apples of your cheeks, sweep your brush along your forehead’s hairline, and whirl back beneath your jawline for the perfect face shape. Next, add a liquid highlighter that glides on the skin like butter by tapping it on the highlights of your face. Finally, apply blush with a brush for a flattering and feminine look for the ceremony.
Step 5: Lip Makeup
The next stage is to beautify your lovely smile with some lip makeup. So, enhance the look of your lips by lining them with a nude-shade lip liner. Then, fill in the lips with a gorgeous lipstick shade. You can also top off your lipstick with a shiny gloss to give your lips a plump look.
Lastly, do not forget to spritz some setting spray from a distance to make your bridal makeup last all day or night.
