Smeared lipstick, too dark eyes – we say, what you should do without the bridal make-up and how you can achieve the PERFECT look.
Lipstick, complexion, blush – now everything has to be perfect
All eyes on the bride! Of course, everything has to be perfect now. Dress, hair, make-up . It does not matter if the bride puts on make-up or books a make-up artist, the bridal make-up has to last all day and evening!
Long Lasting products are designed to be highly pigmented and therefore cover reliably, waterproof mascara is logical anyway and the primer should be carefully applied with primer and concealer , loose powder and make-up fixing spray.
Tip: Be sure Concealer stuck in the handbag, so you small bumps or redness can dab over quickly. Blend rouge, eye shadow and lip color harmoniously! To combine the nail polish color.
Audrey Hepburn Lookalike: Apply Eyeliner
Fairy-like, delicate and beautiful – this is how brides want to look on their wedding day. Important for the look: a perfectly drawn eyeliner. We know, just on such a day he is not easy to make up – especially if you want to make up your bridal make-up yourself . But even if you have booked a make-up artist, you should already think beforehand which eyeline fits your eye shape, how thick it should be applied or what shape he should have. In our eyeliner special we tell you everything you need to know!
Highlighter for the highlight day
Sure, today the bride wants to shine. The much-vaunted glow must come from. For a radiant complexion you should reach for products with shinyparticles and set highlights on cheeks and under the eyebrows . Special highlighters are available as stick, in liquid texture, as powder and cream powder. With the stroking technique Strobing you get a really nice glow! If you want to apply Rouge for contouring, you will find the right tips in our video.
Eye shadow? Gives the view the depth!
Where does the eyeshadow come from? That depends on the eye shape.
If you have slip riders , you should set your eyeshadow differently than someone who has a round or low-lying eye.
If you want to give more depth to your look , put a darker tone in the eyelid crease.
To keep it as long as possible (moisture quickly accumulates in the eyelid crease and the pigments in the eyeshadow tend to settle there), you should apply a primer and dust off the eyelid .
In our video we tell you how eyeshadows last especially long. We’ll also show you how to make your eyes bigger , how to make up Smokey Eyes , or how to make sexy eyes with the banana.
Foundation? The perfect foundation makes the complexion flawless
The most important in the choice of the foundation is the color. He really has to vote . That’s why professional advice in a perfumery is definitely worth it, because there you can also try different products and see how they behave on your skin, and how high the opacity is. Then you should pay attention to the primer:
- Anyone who knows skin blemishes or irritation, and is afraid to permanently glow red with excitement on the wedding day, should choose a foundation that is higher pigmented and reliably covers.
- A primer ensures a longer shelf life of the product on the skin and manages to make the complexion even more even.
- Special fixation sprays want to make the make-up durable throughout the day and can be sprayed on the finished make-up. Caution: Do not hold it too close to the face , otherwise there will be too much liquid on the face and the painted splendor risks blurring.
- We’ll tell you exactly how to find the right shade for your foundation !
- If you need less covering, you can also use a light liquid make-up or a CC cream. The job – whether with your fingers, a brush or a sponge / beauty blender – is a matter of taste.
Lipstick – which should it be? And how does he last the longest?
Should it be your favorite lipstick or a long-lasting classic red? Or rather a delicate nude tone, so that the bride leaves no traces? Important is:
- Anyone who chooses a strong color on the lips, should pay a lot of attention, so that the lips are drawn exactly in shape and the color holds long.
- The lip skin should be as smooth as possible , so quietly exfoliate the evening before. Mix a little sugar and olive oil and gently rub the lips with it. Or massage with a toothbrush.
- There are special transparent primers (lip primer) , so that the lipstick holds maximum.
- A Lipkonturenstift is useful to prevent the leakage of color in the lips wrinkles.
- Apply the lipstick once, preferably with the brush , because it can also fill in fine lip lines.
- In general, lip gloss and matt colors last the longest.
- Dab again between the layers with a paper towel and apply transparent powder. Then apply again carefully.
Better not: you should do without it
Logical. On the best day of your life, you want to be beautiful. We’ll show you which beauty fags you should better skip and what you can do to say “Yes”. The do’s and don’ts at the bridal make-up.
Tips for Bride Makeup: Do not apply too thick
Less is more: especially on the wedding day. Do not use too much make-up and not too bright colors. The bridal make-up should look natural and fit the type. So do not dare experiments and in any case think of the waterproof mascara!
Tips for Bride Makeup: fairytale complexion
You would rather shine at your wedding with a stunning white dress than with white legs? Sure, of course. And such a white dress also radiates much better on a slightly tanned complexion. Nevertheless – or just because: Renounce shortly before the day of the days on sunbathing and solarium . This stresses the skin and can lead to redness. A porcelain-white wedding tint is fairytale. Carry on experiments with self-tanner as well, we’ll tell you what you have to consider when you reach for the tan out of the tube.
Tips for bridal make-up: the right lip color
Bright red is currently very popular, like in poppy or cherry. On the slopes, not in front of the altar. Brides should rather do without it, because: Firstly, you have to be really damned smart in terms of make-up to fix the lipstick durable (with loose powder). And secondly, red color on the dress, veil, on the teeth or on the cheeks of the wedding guests does not look very dressy.
Better to put on soft rose or nude notes. This is much nicer and smoother to cream white.
Tips for Bride Makeup: Do not Smokey Eyes!
If you’re not planning a motto wedding on the theme of “Twilight”, then the bride is better off on dark cat eyes. For a party (it’s always dark there!), A mysterious dark eye make-up is just the thing, but not to say yes. The contrast to the snow, cream, or champagne wedding dress would be too hard. Better to put on radiant, bright tones, for example, rose or beige gold. Chroming is definitely an issue!
Tips for bridal make-up: beautiful nails
That the fingernails should be freshly manicured with a bride, we need not emphasize here, right? French Nails are always beautiful. A beauty don’t: long claws or nail art.
And please do not forget your feet – especially with open bridal shoes! Or just if you strip off the closed bridal shoe while dancing at a late hour. As a bride you have to be prepared for every situation.
Allowed colors: all shades of pink, beige, transparent and solid red shades. Please not too loud.
Tips for hair styling
Especially for the hair applies: not at the last minute. Try the right styling before with the hairdresser of your confidence. Because remember: On no day of your life you are photographed as often as at the wedding . And with some planning, you can avoid nasty photo surprises. To ensure that the hair shines beautifully, you can enjoy a nourishing treatment once a week in the weeks before – if you still have enough time in the preparatory stress. On the big day itself helps shine spray for mirror-smooth hair. Here we show you the most beautiful wedding hairstyles .
Please do not: Herrenwinkler, also popular as Korkenzieherlöckchen
We know these cheeky curls are still popular around the face. Nevertheless, we think: Herrenwinkler were already out in the 80s – and have not come back since then. There are so many prettier and more modern bridal hairstyles that do not bring with them the “danger of slipping”. Here we show bridal hairstyles for each type.
Tips for bridal make-up: flowers in the hair
Marry as a flower girl – preferably on a forest meadow, barefoot. Great idea! Just remember that not all flowers are suitable for a bridal hairstyle. Wickenblüten are very charming filigree, but wither after only one hour without water. More durable are gypsophila or orchids.
Bride Makeup Tips: Avoid blushing
Even if it should be a winter wedding or just the sheep’s cold breaks out in June: Do not take a shower hot, just before you slip into your dress – red alert for a nervous skin costume!
Incidentally, this also applies to salty food on the eve – the lymphs could swell, thick eyes would be the unsightly episode
Tips for Bride Makeup: No tight lingerie
For below-below applies: Do not squeeze in too tight lingerie – this is not nice, if the bridal robe is not optimally relined. It’s best to wear seamless lingerie – no signing, no squeezing and whisking. Also great are figure-shapers, because then even a small belly approach does not occur at all.
