Can I learn how to do makeup for my wedding?  

Your wedding day is one of the biggest of your life, so it stands to reason that you want your makeup to look just right. So, if you’re doing it yourself, rather than getting a professional bridal makeup artist involved, it’s important that you take the necessary steps for a beautiful, glamorous look. 

Sure, you could watch a bridal makeup video on YouTube for a few pointers or for a more in-depth and structured way, you could take a make-up course  to boost your skills. Suffice it to say, that there are many ways to boost your makeup knowledge for your wedding day or even a career in the industry.

Now to the Good Stuff…What are some tips for bridal makeup?  

Okay, now we get to the meat of the subject, as we offer you some pro makeup artist tips on getting amazing results for your wedding. Get your notepad and pen ready, as there’s some helpful guidance ahead that you won’t want to miss. 

  • Don’t Try It All Yourself!

Even if you choose not to use a pro's services, you should still make sure to involve someone else, be it a friend or a family member. Beauty courses online show us that being adequately prepared means having the right products ready when you need them.

Honestly, on the day, you’ll have more than enough to do, so leave the organising to someone else - plus, they can help you do your eyes, which is a particularly difficult area to get right on your own, especially if you’re nervous.

  • Spend Some Cash on a Quality Setting Spray

It’s all very well getting the perfect look on the morning of your wedding, but you’ve got a long day ahead of you, so you need something that will allow your makeup to last longer. As short courses in wedding makeup teach, a good setting spray is an answer - something that can keep you looking fabulous for up to 18 hours!

Quality setting sprays will also be water and sweat-proof, so your makeup will be locked in, no matter how much dancing you do at the reception! 

  • A Facial Should Be Your Starting Point

Online training  in bridal makeup will teach you a lot about how to get the best results, and invariably, that means having a good facial before applying any makeup. This will properly nourish your skin and will have an uplifting effect on how the makeup looks once applied. 

Ideally, you should start a few days before the wedding, with 3-4 facials completed prior to the big day. That way, you’ll have clean, unblemished skin that will allow you to glow on your wedding day truly.

  • Dedicate A Quiet Area to Your Makeup

While the day, in general, will likely be quite chaotic, you need to concentrate on your makeup fully, so it’s a good idea to identify a quiet area for the task. Even a qualified makeup artist will need a certain degree of calm, so you need all the help you can get.

If you have the space, make sure your makeup area is well away from the tumult of everyone else getting ready so that you can fully concentrate and avoid mistakes.
