Tips to Keep Makeup Fresh on Your Wedding Day

The last thing you need on your wedding day is a smeared makeup job or an eye shadow that has creased in your eyelid fold. So don’t let this happen! Instead, read these tips from our expert beauty team to keep makeup fresh on your big day.

If you are getting married, you will be on the go constantly. You might be running around with your bridesmaids, taking pictures in front of landmarks, or dancing at the reception. Therefore, your makeup routine is essential to keep yourself looking great throughout the day.

Make Sure Your Wedding Day Look Stays Fresh

Do you need a way to keep your makeup fresh on your wedding day? Well, we have the answer for you. Follow these five easy steps, and you’ll be sure to look beautiful all night long.

applying makeup

  • -Apply a thin layer of moisturizer before applying foundation and powder for long-lasting wear
  • -Use tinted lip balm instead of lipstick for a natural color that won’t wear off too quickly
  • -Create a special nighttime skincare routine using an overnight mask and eye cream to give your body some extra TLC before bedtime.
  • Apply primer before applying foundation or concealer. This will ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out from the creaminess of the product, and it will also help with the longevity of wear.
  • Mix two parts powder with one part water in an empty container like a jar or old shampoo bottle lid. Once mixed, apply this mixture as needed throughout the day to set makeup without adding any more oil onto skin than necessary which can cause breakouts and clogged pores.
  • Use a translucent setting spray after applying makeup.

Many women spend a lot of time and money on their wedding day beauty routine. One way to make sure your makeup looks perfect all day is by using the right products. A good primer will reduce shine, while an oil-free sunscreen will help protect your skin from sun damage that can lead to wrinkles and age spots later in life. These two items are musts for any bride.

The day you’ve been waiting for is finally here. You’re getting married, and with that comes a lot of planning. Many brides forget to plan for how to keep their makeup looking fresh on their wedding day. That’s where I come in.
