Destination weddings have become increasingly popular over the past few years and why shouldn’t they? They’re incredibly romantic and beautiful. Couples who can afford destination weddings often choose to stay in a nearby venue but the wedding ceremony itself is almost always out in the sun.
Brides who are planning to have destination wedding need to remember that they’re makeup and hairstyle needs to last under the sun for a good few hours. Even if the heat isn’t scorching, your skin might not be accustomed to the climate of this new place and you’ll have to take some extra precautions to make sure the makeup lasts.
Another obvious problem with destination weddings for a bride’s makeup is that it’s hard to find a makeup artist in a place you really don’t know much about. Unless you have a proper reference or have researched into the local artists a lot, you’re going to have a hard time finding the makeup artist that suits to your taste. After all, makeup beauty standards are vastly different in different countries.
If you’re opting to have your makeup done yourself, the most important thing you need to take note of is your skin. You skin will not be adjusted to the new climate and there’s always a possibility of an acne breakout or peeling, dry skin. Prepare your skin according to the climate at your wedding destination; moisturize and use skin care products as required.
If all else fails, you should have a high-coverage foundation at hand to hide all those acne marks and blemishes. Concealers, primers and other face products are always necessary to bring to your wedding destination.
If you’ve decided to hire a makeup artist to do your wedding makeup, have a proper consultation session with her before to clearly outline what you’re looking for. If you have time, then you should have some makeup trials done as well.
Pro tip: get your wedding makeup done in a cool place somewhere inside because you’re going to stay out in the sun for a long time anyway!
