When it comes to your wedding makeup, you want to make sure you look flawless and avoid any and all make up mistakes. We’d like to share some of the most common makeup mistakes that most brides make. Give a quick read and make sure you’re not making any.
Always do your research before trying in a new look. Go through different pictures of women who have similar features or hair color so you can visualize how you would look like. Below are the most common mistakes that brides to be and newlywed brides make.
1. Selecting the wrong foundation shade
One of the biggest makeup mistakes that women often make is choosing a foundation that doesn’t go with their skin color. And this happens because most of them try the product on their hands while making the purchase, whereas it should be tested on the jawline.
2. Use of too many eye shadow colors
Who said you’ve got to deck up your eyelids with too many colors just because you are the newlywed bride? At max, you should use three subtle colors at a time-lighter shade on your brow bone, medium one on your lids and a darker one on the outer corner of your eye and make sure to blend them well.
3. Not preparing your lips before applying lipstick
The reason why you always end up eating your lipstick or why it doesn’t stay for too long is that you don’t prepare your lips before applying a lipstick. So, always make it a point that you prep your lips with a nourishing lip balm and let it absorb.
4. Puffing your face with too much powder
After you have applied your foundation, it is important to apply some loose powder to set your makeup right (especially if you have oily skin). But overdoing the powder is not good, as it will only make your face appear too cakey and white.
5. Applying foundation only on your face
Don’t apply foundation just to the face. Spread it all the way down your jawbone and cover the neck area as well. Otherwise, your neck and face are likely to give an uneven look. It looks awful when the color of your face is all even and doesn’t match the color of your neck.
