Happy Photographic Makeup

Guest Author - Sandra Sable


Makeup is an extremely important part of your wedding day. It basically sums up you inner feelings, taps into who you are as a person. It can even go so deep as to hint as to what type of music you listen to. Yes it is put your best face forward. There are a few key things to note for your wedding day though.

Take a look at wedding pictures from other people. Look at magazines, styles and trends. Do you want your wedding pictures to portray an era or decade? Makeup is like a timeline. Color trends can date your pictures. Ask yourself what you want.

Next thing to do is to start looking at color palettes. Decide what kind of lipstick you want to wear, what colors you think would look best and defiantly play around. Start going through all the products, you are going to be using that day and study the colors.

Here is a quick checklist.
Mascara
Primer
Eye shadow
Foundation
Blush
Powder
Eyeliner
Lipstick
This is just a quick list; it would defiantly change depending on the depth of products you want to use.

Next rule of thumb is talking to your photographer. Explain what you want and don’t be afraid to ask questions. They will give you advise on their ideas for makeup. What I have always been informed is stay away from glitter and shiny. Anything that reflects light can emphasize a wrinkle that does not need to be noticed or that pimple that should have been gone days ago.Eye shadow should be matte, and in very muted tones.

Try to refrain from wearing a lot of lip-gloss, just for this one night. Just place a little dab on your bottom lip for a sexy pout. Really the idea in make up for center stage like this is to create structure in your facial features. You will have cameras flashing at you the whole day, (think paparazzi). You want your makeup to reflect your personality not the camera flash.

One personal hint I have always mentioned to my brides, Green/Hazel eyes think lavender, Blue eyes think of browns and taupes, Brown eyes create shades of pink and beiges. Just some colors to make your eyes stand up and announce your eye color for the day.

The bottom line is you really have to decide on your look, but any bit of advise in a time of emotions and planning is welcomed. This is Sandra Sable signing off for now. If you have any questions I would be glad to help, just email or come on over to the forum and lets talk weddings.
