When you’re planning on doing makeup for a beach wedding make sure to know what kind of weather it will be during that special day, whether it will be during the time when the sun is up which can be sunny and humid or at night when it can be cool. If you’ll be doing makeup for a wedding during a sunny day make sure to wear either a light-weight foundation, a tinted moisturizer (See all facial treatments) or even nothing if you already have flawless skin, as the sun will melt a heavy makeup and can be unflattering when taking pictures. If you have blemishes and imperfections, you can apply concealer to those areas and as much as possible always keep the rest of the face light. And don’t forget to apply a face primer (See all foundation primers). If possible, wear makeup that is waterproof! Like waterproof mascara and waterproof eyeliner etc. These last long and won’t smudge easily compared to regular makeup. It is very important to wear waterproof makeup as you will be under the heat of the sun which can make you sweat, melt and ruin your makeup. Plus, you might not know if you will get emotional and cry. You wouldn’t want to end up looking like a raccoon during your wedding day, right? Do some tests with the look prior to the wedding day. Try going out with your makeup on and see if you like how it looks under the sun and make some adjustments if needed.
For those who would want a more neutral look during their wedding day, here’s how:
conceal blemishes & dark circles
If you have flawless skin, you may skip this part. First, apply any face primer (See all foundation primers) all over the face before putting on any light-weight foundation or tinted moisturizer. For me I used Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (See all foundation primers). This is to make your foundation stay on longer. Next, cover any blemishes or dark circles with a concealer (I used the Youngblood Concealer in Medium) if you have any and keep the rest of your face light and more natural by putting on a light foundation or tinted moisturizer (for this I used the “Get a Tint” Tinted Moisturizer (See all skin protection) by Mark Cosmetics). Next, after you have applied your foundation/tinted moisturizer, set your face by brushing on lightly any translucent powderwith the use of a kabuki brush (See all brushes & applicators) orpowder brush (See all face brushes) to give it a more natural matte finish.
