Getting your makeup look just right on your big day can be a challenge for any bride. You want to ensure that any imperfections are covered, but at the same time you don’t want your makeup to look heavy or ‘caked on.’ You want to feel comfortable standing face to face with your groom but also look good in pictures, having found the boundary between beautiful and stage makeup. Plus you want your guests to recognize you!
A well tamed brow will frame your face beautifully and also make your eyes look bigger. But beware! The eyebrows should play a supporting role in the show called your face! Don’t let your brows become too “on fleek” and become the focal point of your face. Also, don’t get your eyebrows waxed too close to the wedding day. The wax sometimes will leave you red and blotchy. An alternative to waxing is threading which is more precise and accurate and will leave you will a more chiseled brow. Tip: A good brow shape is essential, so go to a professional!

Amp up your look for evening with a beautiful red lip color. Not as scary as it sounds, the two toned lip showcases the top two shades in bridal lip wear, red and neutral.
When picking your style, choose something that is timeless like a nude colored smokey eye.
Tip: Avoid any trends that are too severe. You want to look back at your wedding photos and see YOU, not the trend.
