Wedding Make-ups Do's and Don'ts

Make-up by Jo shares Top Tips for Do's and Don'ts for wedding make-up.


1.  Do be yourself:  Everyone is an individual and your make-up choices reflect your personality and your lifestyle.  You are going to look back on your wedding photos for many years to come and you need to feel like "you"


 2.  Do have a make-up trial:  A make-up trial is normally around 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding day.  This is an excellent opportunity to discuss ideas, colours and the style of your wedding.  Bring along some wedding make-up images that you like.   The make-up trial if possible is ideally to arrange the appointment in the morning which will replicate how it will look on the wedding day.

3.  Do take a photo:  Take a photo in natural daylight on the make-up trial even with your phone or a camera.  This will give you a rough guide of how the make-up looks.

4.  Do get plenty of sleep:  This may be difficult leading up to the wedding day and your nerves are starting to kick in but sleep will really help the skin look amazing on the wedding day.

5. Do enjoy every moment of your wedding day.


1.  Don't follow make-up trends:  Don't follow fashion trends unless you feel confident that you will be happy with the look or experiment new looks on the wedding day itself. 

2.  Don't wear false eyelashes:  Only wear false eyelashes if you are 100% comfortable with them.  On the market there are so many versions of false eyelashes, to individual to strip lashes.  Practice before the wedding day to see if you like the look.

3.  Don't put fake tan on the wedding morning:  If you would like to wear fake tan for your wedding day.  Have a practice run before you apply the fake tan a couple of weeks before hand to see if you like the look.  

4.  Don't wear glitter make-up on your wedding day:  Glitter make-up is a difficult product to photograph well and you want the make-up to flatter you on your wedding day.  For the best results use matte or satin finish products

5.  Finally don't forget how gorgeous you are.

Overall key to a wedding make-up is to make you look like the best possible version of yourself. After all your husband is going to want to see his future wife walk down the aisle as "you"
