Prepping Before the Wedding
Skincare, skincare, skincare! We can’t stress it enough how important prepping your skin for makeup application is. Not only will it help your makeup go on a lot smoother, but it will give you all the wedding day glow that you need!
Waterproof is the way to go
From foundation to your eyeliner, making sure your makeup is waterproof is a must! The last thing you want is for your makeup to start to break up, sweat off, or smear down your face (yikes)! If you are using a makeup artist on the day of your wedding, make sure to ask them to use waterproof makeup or anything that will fight against a wedding makeup meltdown, especially for those hot summer months!
Line Your Lips
Many would save that the secret weapon to a smudge-proof kiss is lip liner! We know that matte liquid lipstick has been all the rage recently, but lip liner will still be your best bet on making sure your lipstick stays in place and your color doesn’t fade.
