Summer is catchy in a tropical climate where you sweat profusely. Implementing make-up during summer is much trickier and to keep them from dripping out of your face is the trickiest of the lot.
The purpose of bridal make-up is that it must look good on picture. Contrarily, in the majority of cases the bride’s make-up looks overdone in the photographs. Here is the point, you do not need plenty of make-up to appear good. Just define your attributes accentuating your lips and eyes.
To be fabulous on your wedding day and for that ‘picture perfect’ appearance, a little preparation ahead on skincare does wonders for one to look more than simply great.
Avoid the whites- salt, sugar and processed flour. Sugar attaches to collagen fibers on the skin making it look saggy. Salt causes water retention which makes you look bloated and refined flour makes your digestion go awry.
Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables full of anti-oxidants which are yummy to your skin. Stick to a cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine followed by sufficient protection. Have a facial done at least two weeks before your wedding day. Do not experiment with anything new because that may lead to breakouts and blemish skin.
Use intensive moisturizing lotion on feet and hands liberally to keep them tender. Get your beauty’s sleep to rub off the tired look from your face.
Avoid the sun to the max. If inevitable use sunscreen with minimum SPF 15.
Tanning will make your skin look unevenly dim on camera. Use a bronzer instead to offer you a ‘totally bronzed look’.
Use ice as coolant in your skin before make-up program. In the event of an oily skin use a transparent primer which functions as a movie between your skin and the make-up to reduce melting because of heat. Another point is to utilize compressed powder (compact) that could absorb perspiration to an extent.
Keep tissues handy to tap out the extra sweat. Most liquid base is better and thick to prevent. Instead decide on a tinted moisturizer which helps in evening out skin tone.
Use refrigerated lip balm as a base coat before use of lipstick. Chilled lip balm does not smear when implemented while keeping the moisture. Avoid using lipsticks that have orange tones because that will make your teeth appear yellow. Go for darker colors than a like maroons and browns.
Same goes for eye liner that tends to smudge due to the humidity and heat. Go for powdered eye shadow than pens or liners. Use waterproof eyeliner to fight sweat. Use a primer rather than direct use of powdered eye shadow to stop crease formation.
Dusting pink powder blush lightly across the cheeks will offer a wonderful shape to the cheeks besides providing a dewy look to your face.
Do not forget to pamper the neck differently on the D-day your neck is going to have a different story to tell of its own. If you’re hypo-allergenic or have a sensitive skin go to get a swatch of the makeup you intend to use to check for allergies.
Ultimately, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Having said this it must also be stated that to make the beholder see your beauty you will need to do something about it. Looking good isn’t about wearing make-up, rather it’s about how skillfully you employ to get the most out of it. The emphasis is on emphasizing your best points.
