Wedding Make Up DON'TS!

A little while ago I did a post for wedding make up DO'S. It's now time for the DON'TS.  Make up is an easy thing to over do, so you always have to be careful.

  1. Don't have your make up done under fluorescent lighting. Always make sure you test to see what your make up will look like in natural light.

     2. Don't let your make up artist take over your look. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of having someone do your make up for you and easy to just take whatever suggestions they throw at you but be careful. You don't want to walk down the aisle looking like someone completely different to your special man. It's best to have a more polished version of how you naturally look.

     3. Don't plaster it on! It's a myth that you have to have a ton of make up on for photographs. In fact since most pictures are taken outside, your make up will look much more obvious. For flash photography, you just need light fine powders, not a ton of makeup.

     4. Don't go for something super trendy. You DO have to keep these photos way longer than that trend would last, so it's best to go with something more classic and natural.

     5. Don't be scared of going brighter on your lipstick. Browns, neutrals, and beiges get washed out in photographs. So choose a brighter color like a light pink or rose.

    6. Don't just put make up on your face. Make sure to match it to your neck and shoulders depending on the dress. You don't want your face being a different shade than the rest of you.

   7. Don't go too dark on your eyes. Use a soft color on the lids, but a dark color or a smokey eye will  detract from the eyes themselves.

   8. Don't go too glossy or too matte for your wedding lipstick. Stick with a statin-y finish that won't dry or ware off.
