What make-up would you wear on your wedding or other special occasion?

Recommended Posts

My wedding is coming up, May 25th! I am super excited and starting to think about what kind of make-up I should wear. Does anyone have any suggestions about make-up that will look really nice is also long-lasting?

 

I am also trying to decide on a nail polish color. Something classy and natural.

 

ALSO -- Not exactly make-up related, but I haven't picked jewelry or shoes either. My colors are purple and tiffany blue. I'm wondering if I should incorporate those colors with my accessories or should I stick with silver/white gold (like my ring) for the jewlery and white or nude for the shoes?

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

I assume you'll be taking photos, so stay away from HD powders. How much coverage do you want in foundation? I have success with Estee Lauder double wear and MUFE Mat Velvet+. I can get 12 hours of wear with loose powder on top and hardly any shiny issues. Do you want a natural look, you but more, or to play up features? It'd be a good idea to do a few practice looks with your friend, to see what you end up loving. French tips are always classic for nails. You could have some bling or something added, for fun. I think shoes that coordinate with your wedding colors would be cute! Sort of a surprise when people see them. :) Depending on your dress and whether it's got bling, I always think less is more for jewelry. Earrings, maybe some studs or something a little dangly like chandeliers if your hair will be back. A bracelet or necklace, if your dress is low cut. You'll have your wedding ring, and you'll be glowing anyways.

Congrats! I got married 3 years ago but it seems like the other day!

 

For wedding makeup I usually like natural looking makeup. I'm not saying you shouldn't make it pop but I would stay away from very dark colors, you want to look fresh. Also I would get a good makeup setting spray so your makeup will last the entire day. I agree with doing the practice looks and trying out any new products ahead of time and in different lighting especially foundations.

 

For my nails I kept it rather simple, I got a gel french manicure with the faux tips. It looked beautiful and lasted through my 2 week honeymoon.

 

For accessories it really depends on the dress and what goes with it but I would suggest getting cute but comfortable shoes...I personally don't think its a great look when the bride is walking around bare foot everywhere but some brides have to.

I always like natural makeup for every occasion and always try to do my makeup flawless. I use lots of makeup product for doing my makeup like :

mascara & eyeliner from Maybelline
eyeshadow & blush from M.A.C
sometimes eyeshadow from Sephora
lipiner pencil from NARS
foundation & press powder from a L'Oreal

 

So choose your own makeup product for a flawless makeup.

Congratulations!

 

I really like the Stila Stay All Day foundation.  It's silicone based, so it will help to control sweat and oil throughout the day.  You can get it at Sephora, Ulta, or Stila's website.  It also has a coordinating concealer in the lid.  I like the Duo Mat pressed foundation to set it.  I use the Real Techniques buffing brush to buff the powder into the t-zone very lightly.  Make sure you use a great primer first for really good all day wear.  Pore-fessional by Benefit is amazing.  So is the MUFE HD primer.  Tarte also has a great one, can't remember the name right now.  Has 12-hr in it... 

 

For nails, you can't go wrong with a nude color, like a really soft pink or flesh color.  It will lengthen the look of your fingers, giving them a nice elegant lean look.  You could have a little rhinestone added to the tips of your ring fingers for a little pop of bling? 

 

Jewelry, the trend is to have a statement earring and no necklace, but it would really depend on the neckline of your dress and what you are wearing in your hair.  But keeping with a nice statement earring keeps the focus up and around your face, too.  Just make sure it isn't so big that it's gaudy or draws attention AWAY from your face, or overpower what you've got going on in your hair. :)

      To avoid looking too pale.

1)    Use a subtle blush on the apple of your cheeks- it brings more life to your face.

2)    Keep the glitter and shimmer products to a minimum.

3)    Use eye shadow primer to keep your eye shadow in place, even when you’re crying out of happiness.

4)    This will prevent creasing throughout the day,

Use waterproof mascara.

The makeup which is trending right now and also is my favorite is the subtle makeup look.  You must have seen the pre-wedding photoshoot poses of Bollywood divas where they were seen flaunting there no makeup look.  Even at their wedding, they have kept it subtle with nude lipsticks. Anushka Sharma totally rocked a no-makeup look on her wedding day. So, if asked from me, I would any day pick a no makeup or subtle makeup look rather than a loud makeup which will look fake.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
