(Closed) No makeup on wedding day?

posted 8 years ago in Beauty
  • poll: Would you wear no makeup?

    No. Never. Makeup is important, everyone should look their best at their wedding.

    In theory yes, if I looked like a movie star naturally

    For some people yes, but I could never do it, no matter how great my skin is.

    Yes, totally, I hate makeup and may go bare on the day

    I think you should stay true to yourself on your wedding day. If normally you don’t wear a lot of makeup then it wouldn’t make sense to go with a face full of product that make you look “like a freak” (in my FI’s words). But if you DO normally wear makeup then I think it would be equally strange to go without. Personally I don’t wear a ton of make up but I do wear eye make up everyday and would feel completely self conscious without it. On my wedding day I just want to look like the best possible version of myself, but still look like myself.

    If you are paying for professional photographs you HAVE to wear makeup, otherwise you will look washed out and sick.

    My skin is nice enough, I often go with just moisturizer, but it’s not perfect enough for professional photos on the most photographed day of my life… and besides makeup is fun! 😀

    @MissCalifornia:  I guess we associate makeup with females, so that’s why. I don’t see why everything needs to be made into some sort of sexist issue. If men originally started wearing makeup, then I am sure some of us would think they looked plain without it lol. Men get judged for their looks too… like if they have long hair and a scruffy beard, most women don’t like it… if they have a too groomed look, they’re metrosexual etc… I’d say the sexes both get bashed haha.

    I think in general most people look best when they’re well groomed, and in the case of females, that includes wearing a little makeup. Most of the time I’m pretty natural, but I definitely feel prettier with a little mascara and curled eyelashes even though my lashes are long and fairly dark to begin with.

    Plenty of people (me included) look fine without makeup… we just like it to enhance ourselves that extra little bit.

    @canarydiamond:  If you personally feel you need/want makeup to feel nice, that’s great, but a PP posted about how some other woman looked plain or not her best without makeup and I just find that kind of judgement to be really petty and unnecessary.

    I would definitely not wear makeup on my wedding day and am not planning on it. Alot of people are warning against it saying I am going to look gray or less than polished. But honestly, men don’t wear makeup and they always look handsome in professional wedding photos so I think I’ll be fine as well.

    I’m just going with light makeup on my wedding day. First off, I will definitely cry, so there’s not much point in putting a lot on. I also don’t want to look awesome in pictures and then look like I put my makeup on with a paint roller when people get close to me! (I tried a few different looks with makeup and that’s how most of them have turned out so far)

    @cbee:  Yay!  Thank you for making me feel a bit less odd.  

    Heh I never wear make-up (except for nail polish) and I don’t plan on wearing any for my wedding.  However, everytime I say this to people they look at me like I am nuts.  I’m also going to wear my glasses because I wear them everyday and I want to look like me on my wedding day!

    @Honeyblood:  I love makeup.  It’s fun and makes me feel fabulous.  Makeup enhances your natural beauty and helps your features to stand out in photos.  To me, foregoing makeup on one’s wedding day is a poor choice, but to each their own.
