Your wedding makeup could be perfect and your hairstyle could be flawless but the wait before finally making an appearance on the wedding aisle could just ruin that perfection. Just like before any other event, there are some final makeup touch-ups you need to do before showing yourself off to the public eye. When you’re a bride, the pressure is ten times more because you’ll be the center of attention of everyone as you walk down the aisle. An oily look, sweat or a spot of lipstick on your teeth are major wedding disasters.
To avoid the embarrassment and keep your makeup game A1, here are a few things you need to double check and do before you loop your arm around your parent and walk down the aisle toward your significant other.
#1: Kill that Oily Look with Some Translucent Powder
If the weather outside is hot or if the stress of the event is making you sweat a lot, then there’s a chance you’re ruining your foundation and face makeup. Before walking down the aisle, get rid of the excess oil and shine from your face by blotting with translucent powder. Oil and sweat tends to collect first above your cupid’s bow, on the bridge of your nose and the center of your forehead so make sure to blot all of the oil away from those places.
#2: Double Check on those Non-water Resistant Products
If by chance you’re wearing non-waterproof mascara or eyeliner, you’ll have to double check it if it isn’t running or creating a dark mess around your eyes. It’s natural to get teary on your big day but tears can create a fashion disaster for non-waterproof makeup products especially the mascara. If you’ve managed to smudge something, use a cotton swab and coconut oil or lotion to carefully remove it without ruining the rest of your makeup.
#3: Lipstick All Okay?
Your lipstick needs to be on point for your bridal makeup look because not only do they bring all the right colors to your face but you need them for your romantic wedding kiss as well. Make sure the lipstick is all within the lines and properly filled. If you happened to have a comfort snack before hitting the aisle, you could have smeared the lipstick or gotten it over your teeth.
#4: Feel Confident, Look Confident
Finally, the last thing you need to add to your face before walking down your wedding aisle is a confident, warm smile. With the right posture and your warmest smile, your wedding makeup will be elevated to an entirely new level.
