How to do your own wedding makeup, according to bridal makeup experts

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

How to do your own wedding makeup, according to bridal makeup experts

The wedding day is the one day that a bride wants to look and feel her best—and who can understand better than you about what you’d like from your wedding day glam. As an increasing legion of brides lean away from the overly-done aesthetic, respite is being found in going down the DIY route for bridal glam. Whether you are looking to do your own makeup for an intimate ceremony or you’d simply like to retain your individuality on one of the most important days of your life, here’s all that you ever wanted to know on how to do your own wedding makeup:

What you should know before doing your own wedding makeup

The road to putting together a successful bridal makeup look is to understand your skin type and features, believes celebrated makeup artist Shradha Luthra. “Practise your look several times and take photos in different lighting to understand how your makeup look will translate on camera. Even if you aren’t keen on hiring a professional makeup artist for the big day, you can still consider hiring a professional for a few quick lessons on what will work for your face,” she advises.

How to find the right makeup products for doing your own bridal makeup

In celebrity makeup artist Florian Hurel’s experience, the key to feeling confident when doing your own makeup is to practise beforehand for preventing any mishaps on an important day. This is also the time that you will want to familiarise yourself with different makeup products  and understand their compatibility with your skin. “Look for long-wearing and waterproof products to ensure your makeup lasts throughout the day. When it comes to key investments, opt for high-quality foundation, concealer and setting spray as these can make or break your look. Also opt for eyeshadows and lip products that offer good pigment payoff,” he says.

Once you have found the right products that can accentuate your face, it is time to do as many dress rehearsals as possible to ensure that you stay one step ahead of any makeup mishaps on the big day. Ahead, Luthra shares as easy routine that even beginners can follow:

  • Start with icing the face to de-puff the skin and get the blood circulation flowing.
  • Prep the skin with high-quality skincare products as per the needs of your specific skin type.
  • Apply a long-wearing foundation that matches your skin tone.
  • Use a concealer to cover any blemishes or dark circles.
  • For beginners, a handy piece of advice to keep in mind is to finish your eye makeup first to avoid any fallout and keep the face smooth and clean.
  • Apply waterproof mascara for long-lasting volume.
  • Choose a long-wearing lipstick in a flattering shade.
  • Set your makeup with a setting mist for all-day wear.

Dos and don’ts to keep in mind when doing your own bridal makeup

Practise can only take you so far—at the end of the day, you’ll also want to stay flexible and roll with the punches in light of any unexpected hiccups. For everything else, take notes from Hurel’s best advice for brides-to-be:

  • If you are looking to make your eyes appear larger, apply a white or nude eyeliner on your waterline.
  • Instead of directly applying lip colour on your lips, opt for a lip brush for precision of placement and longevity during endless ceremonies.
  • Concealer is your beauty superhero for tackling unexpected hiccups. This easy step ensures your makeup stays put, saving you from constant touch-ups on your special day.
  • Avoid piling on too many layers like concealer, powder or contouring. Let your skin breathe for that naturally radiant vibe.
  • Opt for brown eyeliner over black and consider false lashes for that extra oomph.
