Makeup Secrets

Makeup trends that makeup artists suggest for the wedding day change in accordance to changes in fashion. For the brides perfect look many stylists and makeup artists offer concrete advice on wedding makeup preparations. Let’s look into the world of makeup secrets. Renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown, the woman behind a line of make-up by the same name, offers some tips that relate to the glamorous look for your wedding day.


The lighting in the space where the wedding will take place largely determines your makeup. As a general rule – in brightly lit areas, use lighter makeup and fewer colors, and for evening festivities you are allowed to choose bolder, more intense make-up. Also, if you decide to have an informal wedding, the makeup should be as simple and natural as possible. The universal rule is – do not try to leave an over extravagant impression with makeup.

Also in the days leading up to the big day, do not resort to radical changes in your appearance. You should definitely try out your wedding makeup by having a trial run a few weeks before the big day. Be sure that your overall look is totally aligned. If you still want to experiment a little with your makeup, you should definitely consult with your make-up artist. The flash in your camera emphasizes pink tones; therefore it is better to use yellow toned foundation, especially in the areas of the face that require more coverage. To effectively cover any imperfections of the skin or redness in the face, use a corrector in greenish tone.
