If you have a wedding coming up or any other special occasion in which you want to look your absolute best in your makeup, there are things you can do to make that happen. No one knows what steps to take better than professional makeup artists, and the following beauty tips are from the pros:
Take excellent care of your skin, which means that you should exfoliate weekly and moisturize daily. Your powder and foundation will both look better on healthy skin, as opposed to flaky, dry skin. Here’s a tip to help your lips look their luscious best: apply lip balm every night before going to bed.
If you have any problematic blemishes or issues that you deal with regarding your facial skin, visit a dermatologist a few months before the special event you’re preparing for.
Don’t necessarily choose your eye shadow and blush colors to match either your clothes or perhaps the flowers at an event. Your skin tone and overall look should be the foremost consideration when choosing your makeup shades.
Get your nails professionally manicured, and stick with sheer pinks or natural shades that will give your hands a fresh and lovely appearance. If chipping should occur just before or during the event, it won’t be as obvious.
Use an eye shadow primer or base before applying eye shadow, and it will help to prevent your eye shadow from creasing. Use a makeup primer before applying foundation, and your skin will have a flawless appearance.
One trick to keep your eyes looking perfect is to use an eye liner pencil and then also apply a matching eye shadow liner, to set the color.
Even if your event is during the day, your makeup should be applied with a bit more intensity than usual, as if you were attending a formal black tie affair (which, of course, may be the type of event you’re preparing for, anyway).
If you’re going to be in black and white photographs, be sure to apply a creamy shimmer shadow or a white shadow on the brow bone. In addition, apply a touch of lip gloss. For perfect lips, first apply lip liner and fill in the entire lip. Then follow up with a layer or two of satiny color. Blot between applications.
Pack an emergency kit to have with you at the special event. Include lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner, tissues for tears, blotting papers, and fragrance.
