Avoid These Wedding Day Makeup Mistakes

The Wrong Foundation Color – Foundation colors can be highly exaggerated in pictures, especially if you go too light or dark. Going too light makes you look like a doll while going too dark can look like face paint. Even if you have to blend three different colors to find the right match, it will be well worth your time. If you’re unsure of what foundation to use, give yourself a few months to experiment.

Mascara – Please use waterproof mascara! This is for all women attending the wedding. It’s going to get emotional, there will be tears, and not wearing waterproof mascara could be the biggest mistake you could possibly make.

Lip Exfoliating – If you want to have luscious lips, exfoliate them. This is a must to get rid of the dry skin that can ruin your makeup. Use a sugar scrub with your toothbrush and buff your lips. Use moisturizer the night before your wedding.

Too Much Blush – You don’t want to look like doll, so don’t go too rosy with the blush. Be sure to blend as much as possible. Choose a shade that’s not too light or dark, and apply to the apples of your cheeks.

Not Moisturizing First – Before you spend all the time applying your makeup, moisturize first. Try using a face mask that you like about 3 days out, then use face oil the night before, and face lotion the day of. This keeps your skin from getting dry and flaky which will ruin makeup.
