Looking Like Yourself Looking Beautiful Makeup – Not “Made” Up When getting ready to make your beauty services selection for your wedding day, why not think about your setting and who will be around you, not just what you look like in front of the mirror?Ask yourself a couple of questions to get centered: When is the last time everyone was looking at me all evening? When is the last time I wore a formal gown (the lightest color in the room) at a party for 100 plus guests? When is the last time I needed to be beautiful for 8 hours plus? Is everyone really going to be looking at me from across the room all evening? Yes, they are, and they are going to love it! ..if you make sure you have sufficient well blended make-up to have it work for you.These questions may take you out of “not wanting to look like I’m too made up” state of mind and get you into being gorgeous like a movie star, one that is used to being photographed. Your face needs to have depth and shadow beyond what a regular work day or night on the town usually has.Take some photos out of magazines that have similar coloration to you with brows/hair/etc. in line with your own complexion. Lay all photos you selected out together and choose the one that best captures what you want your feel to be.Get a really good professional artist to do a trial face on a day when you can plan to spend the evening with your fiancée if possible. Wear a button front shirt as close to the wedding dress color when you go for trial beauty. It makes it easier to swap out to a hot little dress. Get ready for people to look at you a bit more than usual and get feedback from your baby. Does he love the way you look? He is probably the one you want to look great for, right?Make sure and take some photos in daylight and with flash at night. See how the shadows work your face from your makeup. Does it look fantastic on camera? If not you may need to keep looking until you find an artist that gets what you want. Remember, every face absorbs makeup at different paces and different amounts. You will probably be walking the aisle about 1 ½ to 2 hours after your face is done, so do your real looking and inspecting then. You may think you have too much make up on at first – let it absorb a bit before you get to critical. You want to look pretty when seen up close and from a ballroom away. If your makeup is correct this magic will happen.
