- Perform the makeup test before the Sun sets, not after. Makeups performed under a fluorescent lamp may look entirely different when looked upon on during the broad daylight. In case you’re calling a wedding makeup artist on the day, make sure she arrives well before the Sunset.
- Not every advice is healthy; some are disastrous. Contrary to popular belief, you shouldn’t accept every advice that your wedding artist gives you or you may end up looking entirely different. Different enough, so that not even your to-be-husband can recognise you at the first glance. This can lead to awkward situations. Make up is supposed to make you the best you can look, not a different personality altogether.
- Photographs and makeup goes hand-in-hand—not always. Yet another myth that many girls live with. Only that it gets more profound on the wedding day. Putting some amount of makeup is fine on any day let it be your wedding. But those extra layer of makeup bases are quite visible if the photographs were taken under the sun. Nevertheless, if you can’t live without putting everything in your vanity box on the special day, make sure you do so without being too flashy; you might even end up confusing the camera’s flash. Believe me; putting aside your desire to look super glossy can save you from a lot of embarrassment on your wedding day.
- Be classic rather than too trendy. After the wedding, all you’ll be left with is the wedding photographs. You can’t change them (No, I am not denying the existence of Photoshop). You have to live with them for the rest of your life. The too glossy lip-gloss, glittery eyeliner, dense mascara, and the highly noticeable blush may look great two or three years down the line, but not twenty. They are most likely to be out of fashion by then and may look weird. If you think wrapping yourself too much in symphonies of beiges may scare the bridesmaids, you can go with a mixed bag—balance classic makeup with contemporary. Remember, classic old Hollywood lipstick colour that still goes good. This is what I am talking about.
- Don’t go too dark on the eyes. Outline your eyes by smearing colour in the fold, but avoid putting a shade that’s too thick, as it can diminish from the eyes themselves.
