The Most Important Part of Your Makeup: Your Skin Tone
It doesn’t matter how big your eyes are or how glossy your lips look, if your skin looks blotchy or oily, you won’t look your best on your wedding day. Your first priority should be making sure your skin looks great, then move on to your eyes, cheeks and lips.
Pick Your Eyes or Your Mouth
A basic rule of makeup is to either play up your eyes or your mouth. Play up both and you risk looking like a clown. So if you decide to go all-out on your eye makeup, keep your lips light with a gloss or a light pink lipstick. If you want to play up your full lips, do so with a bright or deep color, but keep your eyes relatively light.
Two Words: Waterproof. Mascara
Perhaps you will be in that 5 percent of women who don’t tear up at some point at their wedding, but if you’re not, today is the day to whip out the waterproof mascara. And ask your maid of honor to carry a tissue for you.
Prime, Prime, Prime
Just as you would prime a wall before you paint, you should prime your face before you apply anything powder-based. I swear by eyeshadow primers — nothing, and I mean NOTHING works better to keep your shadow from melting into your eyelid crease. I use a primer every single time I wear eyeshadow. If you’re wearing foundation or tinted moisturizer, apply primer beforehand. Primer fills in pores and fine lines and you’ll find your foundation glides on effortlessly.
