If you are going to be your friend’s bridesmaid for her D-day, you have to take enough care to look your very best, and at the same time don’t outshine the bride. Be sure that your make up complements you and you look fresh. With these quick and easy tips, you will certainly steal the show.
The skincare regimes you should strictly follow before the day are:
Cleansing – There is nothing more beautiful than a clean skin. A clear skin is the best when you are going to apply the make-up that is going to enhance your beauty all the more. Take some extra care every night to remove the oil and dirt from the clogged pores each night if you want a glowing complexion on that day. A good skin is not the result of one-night care. It takes a lot of care to have it. Always know your skin type and choose the right kinds of products for your skin.
Exfoliate – always exfoliate your skin at least once a week.
Moisturize – Some people who have a naturally oily skin have a notion that they do not need to moisturize the skin. But that is not true. If you have an oily skin, you can opt for an oil-free moisturizer.
Always choose the foundation that matches your skin tone. Just don’t go for a lighter shade in an attempt to look fairer. It is going to make you look strange, rather than fair. Test if the color matches your skin tone by dabbing a little on the back of your hand as the skin tone here is of a closer match to the skin tone of the face. It is however, always a good idea to have a talk with your specialist. Also, test the color in natural and artificial lighting to have an idea of how you are going to look in the day and the night.
Always chose a shade that complements your face, skin tone, dress and overall appearance. Always take care that your eye shadows are in a soft contrast to the color of your eyes. It is always safe and best to choose natural shades, yet look drop-dead gorgeous. If you have blue eyes, go for soft browns and tans with sandy or pink undertones. Opt for brown shades with yellow undertones if you have a hazel or green eye color. Brown eyes look best with brown and charcoal shadows.
Choosing the right colored eyeliner is as important as well. If you are not ready to experiment, go for the usual charcoal shade. People with blue eyes can try brown or bronze eyeliner while purple or brown suits hazel or green eyes. Brown eyes have a lot of options to choose from - bronze, champagne, copper, khaki-green, and beige.
If it suits your budget, going for professional makeup is always a very good option. That can save you a lot of hassles. If you want, you can also go for a trial session before the day to know how you will look. Having expert advice always counts in choosing the right colors and applying the makeup, and it also takes away a lot of stress. However, it cannot fit into everyone’s budget.
Sometimes, the wannabe brides get so excited about their day that they tend to micro manage everything. Just don’t get annoyed and feel the excitement in them and see that they enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience with all of you. If your bride friend wants you to do your makeup in a special way, just let her tell you the ideas and discuss it with her. Don’t forget, a bright smile on the face is what is going to make you special along with the bride on the day.
