Finding Out Your Skin Type

Brides, before selecting your makeup be acquainted with your skin type.  The skin on your face will be in one of three main skin types - normal, dry, or oily.  There are also sub categories, which are combination or sensitive skin type. Before creating a bridal beauty regime or purchasing your wedding makeup products you will need to categorize your skin type.

Here is how to work out which skin type you have: -

 

Normal Skin Type - If upon examination in the mirror there are no prominent areas of shine and your skin feels comfortable  


Oily Skin Type - If upon scrutiny in the mirror your entire face appears shin


Dry Skin Type - If upon study in the mirror there are no areas of shine and further to this, you can see and feel the presence of tight skin, possibly flaky skin.

Combination Skin Type - If upon inspection in the mirror there are prominent areas of shine on your forehead, nose, and chin but cheeks are normal.

Sensitive Skin - Looking in the mirror press your thumb firmly onto your forehead for 10 seconds then remove your thumb.  The longer the mark takes to disappear the more sensitive your skin 


Brides Skin / Foundation

Use a shine free sunscreen if you burn easy and are having outside ceremony photos on a sunny day.    

To cover the reddish skin, use sheer color corrector and apply tinted moisturizer of yellowish green or olive green shade to neutralize it.

Cream foundation with a high pigment level is recommended.

Don't forget to cover your neck, chest, area behind your ears with foundation and makeup too. (just make sure you don’t get any on your white dress)

Morning weddings need natural look makeup while evening weddings need more formally adorned brides with darker makeup shades.

Lighting also determines your makeup. A well-lit area uses lighter colors while deeper tones are good for darker areas. Fluorescent lighting will add a greenish yellowy tinge to everything so avoid green shades.

Brides Cheeks / Blush

Pink color blush is not for the wedding day, generally speaking. Try bronzer under cheekbones instead.

Brides Lips / Lipstick

Make lips look fuller with bright warm lip colors such as orange-red, orange-gold, copper and warm beiges, creams and caramels or cool such as fuchsia, magenta, blue-reds, shades of lilac and pink.

Slim lips with deep warm lip colors such as yellowish and orange / browns; mahogany, deep warm reds and chocolate and deep cool shades such as cool brown, taupe, deep purple, plum and blue-toned burgundy.

The subtle look can be achieved by choosing light shades such as cream, gold, lime green and brown for warm skin undertones and lilac, plums and soft pink for cool skin undertones.

Neutrals are the safest choice to make you seem a bride endowed with natural beauty.

Brides Eyes / Eye Shadow

If you are not used to wearing heavy makeup, keep your hands away from blue and green eye shadows.

For olive and dusky skinned ladies, maroons and brown lip colors are the safest bet as well as the golden tones.

Eye drops like clear eyes will not only reduce redness but also make your eyes look whiter and wider.

Brides Hairstyle

Be sure to coordinate you overall look: all the colors should have either warm or cool tone while your hair, make-up, jewelry and gown should correspond to the carefully chosen theme.

Hairstyle is usually chosen, after completing the makeup to suit the looks of the bride.


Hairstyles are often adorned with pearls, rhinestones, flower buds, golden lace, satin ribbons, jeweled hair bands and tiaras among other hair ornaments and may range from the simplest French braid or bud to complex and elaborate hairdos.

Brides Teeth

Use a teeth whitening treatment for several weeks before your wedding day.

Lastly red lipstick makes teeth appear whiter!

General Brides Makeup Tips
