What makes a summer beach wedding whimsically romantic? It’s the gentle gush of the wind on your hair, the salty smell of the oceans, the pinkish to purplish hues painted on the sky when the sun sets and of course, the burning love of the newlyweds for each other.
However, the downside of beach weddings include the warmth of the surrounding air, making it a little difficult for the bride’s makeup to last long and look fresh all throughout the event. To look your best during your beach wedding, here are a few tips on how to apply your summer wedding make up.
Not Too much moisturizer
It’s a big yes to moisturize our skin, but on your wedding day, apply a little of it on your face. Applying too much would make your skin look oily later on, especially when you start to sweat. You can just apply moisturizer on dry areas like the laugh lines. Better yet, use tinted moisturizers and BB creams with SPF instead. You need SPFs as exposure to the sun’s rays can harm your skin.
Blend, blend, blend
Hide those blemishes and dark under eye circles by using a sweat-proof concealer. Stay away from powder foundation and stick with airbrush foundation to have a flawless finish.
Going matte is a mistake for summer weddings. Hey, it’s summer and you can go glow and it’s totally alright. Don’t overdo it though. Use highlighting powder your inner eye tear duct, center eye socket and bow of the lip. Don’t apply on your cheekbones and nose bridge. Also, you might want to pick a powder with restrained luster so that you’ll not look like a shining crystal from afar.
Bronze it up
Sweep bronzer on spots where the sun would naturally brush your face like the cheeks, tip of the nose, chin and forehead.
Emphasize either eyes or lips
Remember, choose only to emphasize either the eyes or the lips. You cannot do both if you want to go for a sweet bride with a subtle aura. You can go with the classic combo – lush black lashes + pale pink lips. Pop out color. Line an aqua blue or pale green shimmer on your waterline and lash line if you want to spice up your look. If you’re bold enough, wear colored eye shadow and natural lips. Now, if you want to pop out colors on your lips, then don an orange lippie while having simple, natural eye makeup.
