Whether you are hiring a professional makeup artist or applying your own wedding makeup there are a few things to consider. Your make up and wedding day glow is a culmination of many factors.

First of all you should have beauty regime weeks prior to the wedding day. Sun baking is a ‘no, no’ a few weeks prior to the wedding. The one thing you don’t want to have is distracting unsightly tan lines or heaven forbid sunburn and be peeling on your day. If you want to appear tanned on the day the safest way to go is a spray tan.

You may want to consult a professional beautician and book in for a facial at least a week before the wedding. You need to have it at least a week before to avoid any breakouts. Any closer to the wedding day might be too risky. A couple of days before the wedding ensure you are waxed, manicured and pedicured. Don’t forget these fine details which will assist you in looking spectacular.

It is essential you get a good night sleep before your wedding day. You want to look beautiful and rejuvenated. Weddings can be stressful and to keep relaxed you may want to get invest in weekly massages.

If you are booking a makeup artist for the day, ensure you have a makeup trial at least one month prior to the wedding. A makeup artist should be able to recommend the appropriate colour palette for your skin tone. Warm colour palettes of plum, cream, and taupe complement brunettes and olive skin. Whilst Blue-grey, teal, white, pink and lavender really suit cool blondes. Red heads can choose from terracotta, peach, moss-green and grey shades which look great. You may want to provide the wedding makeup artist with magazine cut outs of makeup you like along with your wedding dress swatches and swatches from the bridesmaid’s. You wedding day makeup should complement the gowns and flowers. Remember your makeup should look a little more glamorous than your natural makeup to stand out in photos.

Applying your own wedding makeup can be tricky. Foundations with yellow undertones look best in photographs. For a warm natural glow use a little bronzing powder on your forehead, cheeks and nose. This will make you appear sun kissed. When applying blush, the more the better. You have to remember that the makeup needs to last throughout the day and for the photographs. With the time restraints it is unlike you’ll have many opportunities to touch up.

When it comes to your eyes shadow, choose soft colours that keep it as natural looking as possible. You may want to consider fake eyelashes. They work wonders in extending the length and size of your eyes. The Smokey eye adds a touch of glamour if you can pull it off.

Your lips will depend on your eye makeup. If you choose soft understated eye shadows, you may want to choose a darker richer lipstick. For Smokey eyes a lighter lipstick will complete the look and keep the emphasis on the eyes.

So whether you are doing your make up your self or hiring an expert be sure to follow a beauty regime to make you glow and sparkle on the most important day of your life. Your wedding day!
