Making It Last: Your Wedding Day Make-up

Wedding Day in AustinThere is nothing a bride would want on her wedding day than to have her make-up stay from the ceremony to the reception and even at the after-party. Professional wedding hair and make-up salons in Austin know the trick of the trade.

Know the secret on keeping your makeup intact despite a busy big day.

  1. A clean face

Never underestimate the power of having a clean face. A clean face means an oil-free face. Oil is make-up’s number one enemy. Removing it from the very start would definitely help make your makeup last longer. Start with a clean slate and keep your skin healthy and protected through oil-free moisturizers and sunblock.

  1. Foundation is the key

Like painting, a good foundation allows your skin to be an empty even canvas ready to be painted at. Choose a foundation that suits your skin type and more importantly skin color. A well-applied foundation can hold a makeup longer.

  1. Eye make-up

Having a lid primer will ensure that your eyeshadow stays longer. Liquid and gel liners last longer than pencil ones. Choose ones that do not smudge off easily and are of prime ingredients. This goes true with your mascara as well. You do not want to have zombie liked eyes after crying over your husband’s vows on your wedding day.

  1. Lipstick

Lip pencil does more than you can imagine. Always line your lips with one before filling it with your trusted lipstick color. In some cases, it is inevitable for your lip color to fade as you eat or drink, so it would be helpful to always have your lipstick with you for a quick re-touch.

  1. Stay oil-free

Keep your make-up intact by using oil-free products. Stay oil-free by blotting your face with a film to keep you looking fresh all day.

With these simple yet effective tricks, your makeup would stay put throughout one of the most important occasions of your life.
