Susan Posnick: Wedding Makeup Tips

5. caroline-trentini-wedding   Susan shares some wedding tips for the bride-to-be!

 

Twenty years from now, you want to be able to look at your wedding pictures and still like the way you look, keep this in mind with your makeup.  As a rule: try charcoal eyes well blended with ivory.  With shimmer, less is more when it comes to photographs. A touch of shimmer on your cheeks is fine – but don’t get carried away.  I also recommend putting a touch of white or turquoise on your bottom water line to keep eyes looking bright! For a beach wedding, it will be humid, so use as few products under your makeup as possible. Use a water based moisturizer and if skin is oily, you might want to skip this all together.

Use COLORFLO: mineral foundation under your makeup with sun protection.  Try a water resistant mascara and lips in a soft coral or rosy pink.  Again – no shimmer!  Whether your wedding is indoors or outdoors- adding false lashes is one of the easiest ways to look good in a photograph.
