The first thing you should do when you are applying your own bridal makeup is to apply a great foundation to your face that matches your skin tone. Or you can use an anti-shine powder as an alternative. Blend this cosmetic in thoroughly so that it is even throughout your face. Add concealer under your eyes if you need to as well. Next, choose a blush that is right for your skin tone. If you are more interested in achieving a natural look, opt for a shade that is neutral.
Most brides enjoy a dramatic look in their eye makeup for their wedding. Choose three colors -- a dark, medium and light shade. The light color should be applied to your lid, while the darkest shade should be applied just above this and just at the corner of your eye, meeting with the light. The medium shadow should be applied directly above that, meeting with your eyebrows. Use a Q-tip or a blending brush to blend all of these colors where they meet to give them a more natural effect.
Apply eyeliner in black or brown to your upper and lower lids in straight, even lines. Mascara in the same color should also be applied to your lashes. As for your lipstick or lip gloss, opt for a neutral, natural color that works well with your skin tone, as this tends to look better than if you use a bright shade. Use a great lip liner that closely matches the one you are applying to your lips.
