Wedding Day Fashion


Go with classic looks rather than trends for hair and make up and also wedding day fashion. You don’t want to look back on your wedding pictures 15 years from now and wonder what was I thinking.

Your make up should look as if you are going to a wedding and not a party. I have been to and seen many pre-wedding make-up sessions and sometimes the look that the bride prefers is one that is high fashion as if you were going out to the club. My advise, keep it classic and just highlight and accentuate what you already have naturally. He fell in love with your natural look why change that? Further you don’t want to deviate too much away from your natural features so that no one can recognize you.

    avoid the glitters on your face

    Avoid trends, as they will very soon look dated in pictures – peacock eyes, heavy fake eyelashes etc

    DO use a bronzing powder to warm your skin tone.

    Using a natural bristle brush, lightly apply color to the areas of the face where the sun would naturally hit: forehead, cheeks and the bridge of the nose.

    If needed, apply a light dusting on your neck and chest for even all-over color.

    DO give your foundation staying powder by using a gel foundation primer before you apply your makeup.

    Add a light dusting of loose powder to prevent any unwanted shine.

    Do select more golden-toned bases and concealers – these translate better for photography – whether on video or in pictures

    Do use more natural, lighter and “cleaner” colors.

    These flattering shades will not look washed out and the contrast will not be too great with your dress.

    Your natural radiance should be on display, not bright color. These more muted tones work best, not only for you, but for the wedding party as well.

    Don’t encourage any “make-up surprises” on your special day.

    Schedule a make-up consultation for yourself at least four weeks before the wedding for a trial run.

    Bring in a photo of your dress to the “trial” make-up.

    the makeup artist should take cues from your dress; is it understated and sophisticated, classic in the “Cinderella” tradition, or chic and sensuous?

    Don’t over-correct or over-camouflage under eye circles. If the concealer is too light, it’s the only thing you will see in the photos.

    Don’t use a traditional talc-based powder foundation.

    After touchups, it can oxidize and darken on the face, which can result in a “dirty” look as the day goes on.

    Don’t get carried away with shimmer highlighters or light-refractive makeup.
