- Day Wedding/Evening Wedding

- Beach Wedding

- Summer Wedding (Warm weather or humidity)

- Winter Wedding (Cold Weather or precipitation)

Keep in mind all these types of settings when planning your makeup look.

Step 2- Know your face! Only you know how your face has reacted in the past to different products.

If you want to try a new product do it in advance, not the day of your wedding.

Do a trial run on your complete makeup look before the wedding either with a consultation with a professional makeup artist, or if you plan on doing your own wedding makeup on your own.

Step 3- Go with a more natural look by applying your foundation and making sure it matches your skin completely. Color blend the foundation on your jawbone and blend in at least 2-3 strokes.

Cover any blemishes or imperfections with a concealer.

Tip- Try using a kleenex to lightly pat the foundation once you are done applying, this will help your foundation to stay on longer.

Use a translucent powder to set the foundation in place once done.

Step 4- Shape the eyebrows and brush into place, fill them in if needed.

Step 5- The eyes...Try using a cream or white shade on the brow bone and on the inner corner of the eyes. This will make the eyes appear brighter and adds a great highlight.

Keep your eye makeup neutral, by using a taupe or light brown shade in the crease. Make sure to blend the eyeshadows well, this will give a softer appearance.

Step 6- Use a brown or black eyeliner to define the eye, Smudge to give the eyeliner more staying power.

Step 7- Try using False Eyelashes, to make your eyes really pop! If you have the time, try using individual lashes to give a more natural appearance.

Step 8- Apply blush to give a dewey finish to your look.

Step 9- Moisturize your lips, then apply a lipstick.

A makeup secret to having your lipstick last all day is to blot it with a kleenex once you have applied it, and then go over the lip again with the lipstick.

Apply a lip gloss as the top coat and you are set!
