On your wedding day, every moment should be special and unforgettable. While preparing for the big day, one of the most important things that usually takes priority is your bridal makeup. You should look as radiant as your love story. Bridal makeup should enhance natural features and reflect personality.
There are five main skin types you should know about before choosing your bridal makeup: normal skin, oily, dry, sensitive, and combination, each with its own distinctive characteristics and specific needs.
Normal skin is like the goldilocks of skin types—not too oily or dry, just right, like a harmonious balance!
Your main goal should be to create a smooth and even base that will last throughout the day. Start by cleansing and applying a lightweight moisturizer. Look for a primer that is specifically designed for normal skin.
When it comes to foundation, choose a formula that provides light to medium coverage and has a natural finish. Set your foundation with a translucent powder to help it stay in place, and add a touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow.
Having oily skin means your skin is naturally moisturized and less likely to show signs of aging. Oily skin tends to produce excess sebum, leading to that sought-after shine.
You know how challenging it can be to keep your makeup looking fresh and matte all day. Start by cleansing your skin with a gentle oil-free cleanser and applying a mattifying moisturizer to control oil production. Then, go for a mattifying primer to help your makeup stay put.
For the foundation, choose a formula that is oil-free and provides medium to full coverage. Set your foundation with a mattifying powder, and use blotting papers throughout the day to control shine.
Dry skin craves moisture like the desert craves rain. If you often find your skin flaky, you're in the dry skin club. After cleansing and moisturizing, it's essential to apply a hydrating serum and primer to prepare the skin for makeup.
The foundation formula should have medium to full coverage and a dewy finish with hydrating powder. Then, set it with a highlighter to high points on your face. The key to mastering dry skin makeup is hydration. Prep your canvas with moisturizing products for a smooth, dewy finish.
If your skin reacts to new products or environments, you fall into this category. The primer and foundation for sensitive skin should be hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic.
To avoid irritation, skip the highlighter after the hypoallergenic powder. Opt for hypoallergenic and fragrance-free makeup to keep your skin happy and healthy.
Combination skin is a bit like having a split personality; some areas are oily, while others lean toward the dry side. The T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) might be oil-central, while the cheeks crave hydration.
For combination skin, use a gentle cleanser, lightweight moisturizers, a combination primer, an oil-free foundation, a combination powder, and a touch of blush for a natural, healthy glow. Use products tailored for combination skin to ensure all zones get the love they deserve.
