10 Bridal Makeup Mistakes to avoid on your Wedding day

1. Wrong color combination can ruin the fun 

Wrong color combination

Wearing the wrong color foundation is the worst mistake of them all. Going too light will make you look like you’ve painted your face. Going too bright will make you look even more exaggerated in photographs. The best way to deal with such a paradox would be to apply only a moderate amount of foundation, which we suppose your makeup artist knows very well.

2. Ditching waterproof mascara is unnecessary

Always use waterproof mascara on your wedding day. On this auspicious day of emotional celebrations, tears are bound to flow. To avoid mascara tears, a waterproof formula goes a long way. Otherwise, you would end up ruining your makeup and your photos will turn into disasters.

3. Don’t forget exfoliating before putting on lipstick

Whether it’s your lipstick or lip gloss, ensure exfoliation before applying. You can use a sugar scrub and a soft toothbrush to buff the dead skin away. Also, don't forget to wear a moisturizing mask on your lips and leave it overnight. This will get your lips soft enough to respond positively to the wedding makeup.

4. Don’t apply your blush like you’re a doll

Don’t use too much of rose color as it will ruin the look. Instead, ensure blending just enough. While applying blush to your cheeks, make sure you choose a shade that’s neither too dark nor too bright. If it seems viable, carry out an experimental makeup exercise to check out what suits you the best. And if it’s too late for experimentation, simply instruct your makeup artist about your preference.

5. Don’t put on your makeup without moisturizing first

Let’s be honest, you’re about to spend time and money on that perfect makeup. The only way to keep your makeup secure throughout the ceremony is to apply cosmetics to moisturized skin. Use a face mask three days before your marriage, and use some face oil the night before. On a grand day, apply some face lotion.

6. Always wear eyeshadow that belongs in the natural color scheme

We understand! You love that bright emerald green eyeshadow, but reserve it only for your upcoming girl’s night out. We recommend the smokey eye look, as it looks beautiful. On your wedding day, blend it only with colors that belong within a natural color scheme such as browns, tans, taupes, and creams.

7. Don’t hire a friend who’s great with makeup

Only hire a professional makeup artist for your wedding day. Your friend may be great with makeup during all your kitty parties, but your wedding is certainly not one of those parties. So, you should keep things serious, especially because it deals with enhancing your beauty. You deserve to look beautiful and applying makeup is no joke.

8. Pull a covering over your face while wearing your wedding dress

These days, most wedding dresses can be stepped into, however, in case you would be wearing a dress that needs to be put on from over your head, make sure you use a covering. This will help you to prevent the makeup from sticking on your dress.

9. Always keep oil blotting sheets close

Although the matte foundation is a go-to remedy to solve oily skin issues, make sure you have enough oil blotting sheets for touch-ups. They will come handy throughout the wedding day.

10. Don’t Skimp on concealer

Overusing the concealer might turn things unsavory, especially on your wedding day. But at the same time, don’t use too less of it. You don't want to take chances with the dark circles under your eyes. They will never look good in your wedding photos. So let an expert take care of the duty.

We believe our guide shall help you prevent mistakes from happening on your wedding day. We wish you a prosperous and happy life ahead!
