Summer time is a difficult time for the bride with the oily skin. Spending excess time in the summer sun (not to mention humidity) can wreck havoc on your makeup. Even the bride with a more normal to dry skin type can have difficulty keeping their wedding day look together. Below we’ve assembled some tips for you on keeping your look from melting away.
If you tend to have oily eyelids, be sure to use concealer all over the entire lid and immediately below.
For dry lids be sure to moisturize with a non-greasy formula. Cover the entire lid and immediately below.
If you have oily skin, apply an anti-shine foundation over the entire face. Use a foundation brush or your own (very clean) fingers. For other skin types use a matte foundation and or spot treat with a concealer.
Cover the entire face in loose powder, pay specific attention to the “T-zone area” and over the eyelids.
Steer clear of anything cream based whether that be eye-shadows or blush. Your best option is to choose a powder formula for the eyes and a stain or powder for your cheeks.
Always set your eye-shadow and blush with a loose matte finish powder.
To line your eyes opt for liquid liner. The liquid dries faster and is less likely to smudge or run when wet. If you don’t feel comfortable with a liquid brush, there are cream based eyeliners that come with a brush and sealer to use.
Of course you will want to use your favorite waterproof mascara. Don’t forget to curl your lashes first!
To keep your lipstick smudge-proof apply concealer over the entire lip prior to color application. To seal the color let the lipstick settle for a minute and then apply a clear non-sticky gloss to finish.
Lastly, don’t forget to have pack an emergency kit to give to your maid of honor. The kit should include at least the following: facial blotting papers, tissues, lip gloss, loose powder and a large brush.
With these tips you are sure to make your day stress free and have beautiful pictures to look at for years to come.
