How To Have Flawless Skin At Your Wedding

October 19, 2016 by Katelyn Holland

If there’s one day of your life that you want to look completely flawless, it’s your wedding day. Everyone is going to be looking at you, so it’s important to make sure that your makeup is on point. Whether you are getting your makeup professionally done or doing it yourself, you want to take the following steps to guarantee your makeup lasts all day and your skin looks flawless.

Always book a makeup trail before the big day. If your doing your own makeup, test out the products you want to use in advance. This way you can wear the foundation around and get a feel for how it looks and how long it will last. You are paying the makeup artist, so don’t hesitate to be vocal about what you want. Keep in mind, if you are getting a spray tan before the big day, you are going to want to make sure your foundation matches your body.

If it’s an option, splurge on getting airbrush foundation. Airbrush foundation is a light-weight makeup that is applied through an air gun machine. A professional makeup artist can create the perfect airbrush foundation match for you. The result is a thin, even layer of foundation that create a flawless completion. According to Wedding Wire, the benefit of airbrush foundation is that your true skin tone shows through the fine mist, which makes the foundation look more natural and less cakey. Airbrush foundation is also waterproof and last longer than traditional foundations. It also tends to look better in pictures, which is great for your wedding day.

Recently, I was in a bridal party where half the girls opted for airbrush foundation and the other half stuck with traditional liquid foundation. There wasn’t a huge noticeable different between the two in photographs. However, those who opt for airbrush foundation did have longer-lasting results.  It worked best for the girls with oily skin, because the finish was matte. The girls who opted for liquid foundation had it applied with a damp beauty blender. A beauty blender helps disperse the a light, even layer of foundation across your skin. Applying foundation this way is a great alternative to airbrushing. Liquid foundation is also easier to touch-up than airbrush foundation.

Not matter what, you want to make sure you start with a primer. This will help ensure your makeup lasts as long as possible. Also, always use waterproof formulas. Sure, you say you’re not going to cry, but go with waterproof option just in case. The last you want is a tear streak running down your foundation. Top off your makeup with a setting spray, which will help seal in the face products you use and prevent you from looking shiny.

Whatever you do, don’t cake on foundation because you think it will look better in photos. This is almost never the case. Heavy foundation tends to look unnatural, as does too much highlighter. Remember, there’s a fine line between being glowy and looking shiny and sweaty. Also, avoid foundations that have SPF. This will result in a white cast in photos.

It’s also important to pack a makeup touch-up kit. Have a bridesmaid carry around the kit all day. You’ll want to have it for the ceremony, pictures, and the reception. The kit should include blotting paper, extra refreshing spray, translucent powder, blush and bronzer. This way you have a little bit of everything the makeup artist used. This what you are prepared for anything.
