When makeup is concerned, brides often think of wearing a lot of makeup because the day is so special. But hold on! Don’t make that mistake! Loading your face with makeup can make you unidentifiable! You may look prettier than ever, but what if your would-be significant one doesn’t recognize you? He might even get an impression that my wife doesn’t really look that pretty, when she doesn’t wear makeup. So, remember that while wearing makeup for your wedding, you should keep in mind that you should look like yourself and not some fairy, landed on the earth from the heavens! You should just have to enhance your looks with the makeup. Take the examples of Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian. The former is inclined to soft makeup, while the later is a makeup junkie! But both of them looked like themselves on their respective weddings, because they took the aid of makeup just to enhance their looks and not overdo than usual. Having said that, let me tell you what can you consider to enhance your looks on the nuptial.

Your Skin – the Most Important Component of Your Face

So, you should give utmost importance to your skin health and tone. You need not be distressed thinking that your skin is not good. Even big celebrities need to remove flaws in their skin regularly. This is because pollutants, allergens, wrong eating habits, stress and many such factors affect our skin continuously. Here are some quick tips to hide the skin flaws if there are any. Apply a moisturizer or primer before you apply foundation. Also apply a concealer before foundation. Regarding foundation, apply “full foundation cover” ONLY IF NECESSARY; otherwise, avoid it and apply only where necessary. While applying foundation, blend it properly. Choose an appropriate color.

Either Eyes or Mouth

Do Use A Highlighter Pen

Apply it a little under the eyes, above brows, in the creases along nose and under chin. Pat softly with your finger. Here’s a master tip – while applying it, look in the mirror with the chin down.

Blotting Sheets – Great for Skin Oils

Taking the help of a professional is always good for correct makeup tips. Instead of applying your own ideas, which may not be correct, better to go as per the advice of professionals and look really the best on your big day.
