5 Essential wedding day makeup picks

Aside form the perfect groom and a beautiful dress, one of the most important decisions for a flawless bridal makeup look is using the right products; they must fulfill needs of comfort, longevity and of course should look flawless on film.

Whether you are planning your engagement photo shoot, bridal shower or actual wedding day makeup picks, there are a few key points to consider. First, makeup translates much different on camera than in real life which is why choosing a makeup artist experienced with makeup for flash photography and high definition is very important. In general, stay away from high SPF products and visible glitter. Sunscreen gives an ashy quality to the skin in photos and chunky glitter on either eyes or face makes for an unflattering sheen that can look like sweat.

Waterproof products for daily use may not be favorable for some as it may cause a little discomfort on the eyes but for bridal events choosing multiple waterproof products will ensure a truly long wearing makeup. The latest waterproof products are quite impressive ranging from lips, cheek, eye and complexion with great options for ultra-sensitive brides. Give a couple eye products a test run a couple weeks before the wedding just to be safe and be sure to invest in a good waterproof makeup removing product to cleanse with at night.
