Bridal Makeup Tips for Summer Weddings

Ah, summer – the season of sunshine, blue skies, and, of course, beautiful weddings.

But don’t worry, because our BLBS experts are here with pro tips to ensure your bridal makeup stays put, even on the hottest of days.

Essential Skin Prep for Wedding Makeup

Proper skin preparation is non-negotiable, regardless of the thermometer’s climb. Opting out of moisturiser is a myth. In reality, hydration is key. A well-moisturised face provides the ideal canvas for makeup application, ensuring it goes on smoothly and lasts longer. A favourite among professionals is Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré, perfect for all skin types. Oily skin types should consider a gel-based moisturiser, like Innisfree’s Youth-Enriched Gel Cream. Follow up with a mattifying primer, such as Smashbox’s Photo Finish Oil & Shine Control Matte Primer, to keep everything in place.

Less Is More for Makeup and Hair Wedding Styles

When it comes to your wedding day makeup, think minimalist. Heavy layers can melt away, so focus on integrating products smoothly. Start with a spot-correcting concealer and a reliable foundation like Il Makiage After Party Full Coverage Foundation. For blush, layer a cream base under a powder for longevity and a natural-looking flush.

Set It and Forget It

After blending your base flawlessly, seal it with a trusted setting powder like Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Finish with a setting spray to ensure your look stays fresh and vibrant all day. Inn Beauty’s Power Up 3-in-1 Mist or Morphe’s Continuous Setting Mist are excellent choices for their lasting power and added glow.

Sweat-Proof Solutions for Wedding Makeup Perfection

Every element of your makeup, from your lipstick to your eyeliner, should be budge-proof. Opt for a long-wearing liquid lipstick to avoid mid-celebration touch-ups and choose a tear-resistant eyeliner like Inglot’s AMC Eyeliner Gel for emotional moments. Remember, your entire makeup should withstand not just sweat but the occasional tear too.

Keeping Touch-Ups to a Minimum is a Key

Frequent touch-ups can sometimes do more harm than good, especially in heat. Stick to minimal touch-ups using blotting papers and a light dab of powder if necessary. This approach helps maintain your makeup’s integrity without adding layers that could mix with sweat and slide off.

Beat the Heat on Your Wedding Day

Beyond makeup, remember to keep cool physically to help your makeup last. Handheld fans, air-conditioned breaks, and plenty of hydrating fluids can be lifesavers, ensuring you look and feel your best throughout the event.
