As a photographer, I want you to look your absolute best in all angles even in photographs. No matter how makeup-savvy you may be, you don’t want to do your own makeup your wedding-day.

Do you want a more natural look, timeless and classy? Do you want a dramatic or transformation look? Do you want Smokey Eyes or cat eyes liner? Do you want to achieve the no makeup look? Here are some beauty tips for your Makeup on your wedding day:
For a natural and elegant glow, hire a professional MAU artist. They know what they are doing as they are trained beauticians. This is their expertise. They work and understand various skin types. They provide the best products for your skin.
Highly recommended that you wear some kind of skincare products to protect your face. While sunscreens can protect your skin from skin cancer or skin damages; but, understand that SPF can cast weird and unflattering lights on your face when it comes to photography If you must wear sunscreen or SPF with your makeup, use a moisture with SPF instead of a foundation with SPF. Also, when you work with a professional makeup artist, you don’t have to worry which skincare products contain SPF or not.
Various element of lights can reflect off your skin to cast an undesirable skin tone such as white finishing powder. Wearing white finishing powder and Sparkles can have similar affects in photographs as sunscreen with SPF. Consult with your professional makeup artist to avoid this issue. If at all cost, avoid it all together.
Makeup accentuate or refine the beauty that already existed especially in photo shoots. Makeup highlights your unique beauty such your cheekbones or your eyes. A little makeup can create a more stunning and timeless picture when the lights hit your skin in that moment. If you are worry about makeup that clog your pores or too much on your face. Consult with you makeup artist to determine what kind of product works for your skin tone.
You know that Weddings can be very emotional in the best way possible. Whether you are the type of bride that rarely cry at the sappy romance movies or you’re the type that cry easily, waterproof mascara is a must. Unless you are intentionally going for a raccoon or black eyes look then by all mean go for non-waterproof mascara. Regardless if you’re going to shed a tear or not, wearing waterproof mascara is great especially for a Summer time wedding.
This is one of those fine line and can depend on the look you want. Red lipstick is pretty and sexy but from my personal experience and from the professional makeup artist, we don’t recommend it. Why? Because Red lipstick can be messy. It get on your beautiful white or champagne dress or even on your beautiful white teeth, it is harder to get it off. Plus, if you’re going after a natural, elegant, and classy look then red is not something you want. Trust us!
Always have a blotting tissue paper in hand instead of pressing powder. Blotting paper is a great solution to maintain the same classic look without disrupt your makeup. In addition, it helps dry-off any excessive sweat without messing up the makeup. Don’t reapply pressing powder. Instead, using blotting tissue paper. It helps absorb oil and sweat, keep the face shine free.
