Tips for Wedding Makeup
Start With Your Skin
If you haven't been diligent about your skin-care routine, now's the time to begin: "Getting regular facials makes a big difference in your skin's texture and helps you have the best base for makeup," says makeup artist Tiffany Patton of White Rose Collective in New York City. Schedule monthly treatments—aim for at least three—that will illuminate and firm your complexion, says facialist Regine Berthelot of New York's Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at the Plaza Hotel.To prevent any last-minute irritation, skip extractions the month before.
You'll want bright white teeth, too: Use a whitener (we love Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips) in the weeks leading up to the big day, and pass on dark, stain-inducing drinks, like coffee, soda, and red wine.
Make Your Makeup Last
Though it might feel otherwise, your wedding day is a marathon, not a sprint, and you'll want your makeup to hold up through every last photo, dance, toast, and selfie. That makes primer essential: Spread it on your face and eyelids (we love Neutrogena Shine Control Primer and Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base) after cleansing and moisturizing, then top with a foundation to create a smooth base. "Apply everything in thin, even layers," says Patton. That goes for blush, highlighter, translucent powder, and lipstick, too. "Use a lip liner, put on your lipstick, blot, add more lipstick, blot, and add more lipstick," says Patton. "This process really seals the product to the lips and makes for a perfect stain."
Conceal Dark Circles and Last-Minute Breakouts
So, your rehearsal dinner lasted until dawn. No big deal. Put foundation on first, then to mask undereye circles, dot a creamy formula on the inner corners of your eyes with a brush and work it outward. Use your fingertip to gently press (not rub) the formula onto skin where it seems dark. To camouflage a zit, tap a slightly tacky concealer right on top of it with a synthetic-bristle brush, says makeup artist Chrisanne Davis. "Don't sweep it back and forth," she says. "It will build up around the blemish." A few concealers we love: Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick, Mark Save the Day Anti-Acne Concealer Stick (for pimples), Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Concealer Invisible Cover Concealer,and Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes (for brightening dark circles). To give it some staying power, top with translucent powder.
