How to avoid the 10 most common makeup mistakes on your Wedding Day!

All eyes will be on you. Make sure every inch is worthy of close-up attention.

1. USE PROPER SKIN CARE
Give nature a helping hand by starting a basic skin care program at least 2-3 months prior to your wedding. Daily care, a morning and evening regimen primes your face for the sheer makeup look brides love!


2. USE WATERPROOF MASCARA

Undoubtedly, this is one of the happiest moments of your life and you may shed a few tears of joy. The last thing you want to happen is the photographer taking a picture of your makeup leaving your face before you leave the altar.

3. USE LIPLINER AND LIPSTICK

The ultimate in kissable lips…Select a lipstick rich in moisturizers and emollients. Line first, use a brush to apply color and reapply for staying power. Add a touch of gloss for shine. Avoid frosted lip color.

4. USE TRANSLUCENT FACE POWDER

Sets makeup and provides a matte finish. Helps control oil break-through and shine. Always select powder in a shade closes to your natural skin tone. Pressed powder is portable so use it throughout the day to pat away shine. Shake applicator after each use to prevent a

5. WEAR THE CORRECT FOUNDATION SHADE

Gives skin a smooth even-toned finish as it guards against environmental elements. Apply with fingers or sponge using sweeping strokes, blending well, especially along the jaw line and hairline. Do not select a foundation shade to match the back of your hand. Select one that closely blends along the jaw line.

6. USE COLOR HARMONY

Color is the variable that adds sparkly to your bridal look. To harmonize, simply choose makeup and wardrobe attire with a single undertone either vibrantly cool or radiantly warm. Make sure you harmonize lip color, cheek color and nail color.

7. BLUSH APPLICATION

Blush should provide a soft glow, never streaked or blotchy. For sheer and even application, use a blush blending brush. Begin applying at the base of the hairline near the ear and blend forward using up and down feathery strokes. Wherever you lay the blending brush first, deposits the most color. Lightly dust face powder over blush to tone.

8. WEAR A FRAGRANCE

A woman’s fragrance is her most intimate trademark, the invisible part of herself that makes a lasting impression on other people’s senses. The scents you select are your own personal signatures. Never overdo your aroma. Make sure your fragrance doesn’t arrive before you do! Use fragrance- layering techniques to apply body creams, dusting powders, and colognes. The scent you select will either be silent and suggestive, feverish and magical or romantic and sensual.

9. WEAR MAKEUP

Use tricks of the beauty trade to accentuate, enhance and define your most excellent features. Glamour can be applied to compliment any face shape and complexion, regardless of facial contours or bone structure. Minor imperfections and blemishes may be neatly corrected by using a concealer. The catchwords are experiment prior to your wedding date.

10. USE A PROFESSIONAL

Beautiful skin care and glamour isn’t just something you buy – it’s something you learn. Through personal instruction learn the right beauty regimen customized for your skin type and proper glamour application. It’s your Wedding Day guarantee!
