5 Makeup Mistakes to Avoid

We all have those days where we can’t get our eyebrows or eyeliner to match. Those days where no matter what concealer or foundation you use, that pimple is still bright red. You DON’T want that day to wind up being your wedding day. To ensure you’re looking your absolute best, avoid these 5 makeup mistakes!

Not hiring a makeup stylist

Hiring a professional is key to creating a stunning wedding day look. Not only do they know what makeup will show up well in pictures, but they will be able to masterfully cover up those nervous breakouts or problem areas.

Skipping your trial

You should schedule your first trail about 3 months before your wedding date to discuss color scheme, overall look (formal, natural, airbrushed, etc.), and choose which products will be used. Imagine finding out you’re allergic to a certain powder on the morning of your wedding!

Not using waterproof makeup

If there’s one guarantee, it’s this: you will cry at your wedding. It’s inevitable. You’ll want to make sure all your makeup – not just your mascara – is waterproofed to avoid streaks.

Wearing shimmer in the wrong places

Adding a bit of translucent powder to your cheekbones and decolletage will attract light and create a fresh look. You’ll want to avoid putting any sort of shimmery dust on your nose, cheeks, or forehead – as it will come across as greasy rather than dewy in photos.

Forgetting about your bridesmaids

To ensure that your bridesmaids all have a similar look, have their hair and makeup professionally done by a stylist, too. This is one place where it’s nice for the bride to chip in, as your bridesmaids may not be expecting this added cost.


Though your love and happiness will radiate from your pores, you’re sure to look and feel absolutely stunning if you avoid these makeup mistakes.
