Summer weddings are aesthetically gorgeous, however they may cause a makeup meltdown on your face. To avoid this, you are going to want to make sure to stick to the least amount of makeup possible.
If you already have clear skin, using a spot concealer would be a good choice, this will avoid any oily effects from the combination of heat, sun and your foundation.
If you are not blessed with flawless skin, do not worry, just make sure you choose an oil-free foundation which you apply with a foundation brush, and set with a little powder.
The eyes are where it starts to get tricky. Along with the humidity, you run the risk of ruin through your tears. So, you are going to need to make sure that it all it completely waterproof.
To begin with eyeshadow, you are going to want to start with a primer. This will make your eyeshadow much more long lasting and provide a smooth, blank canvas to entail a perfect shadow. When choosing eyeliner and mascara, make SURE they are waterproof beforehand, and stick with a liquid eyeliner – they out run ANY pencil. If you are getting your makeup done professionally, be sure to have a few test runs before your ceremony.
When applying blush, definitely use a powder over a cream. This will help avoid oily skin.
Last but definitely not least, you lips! You are going to be using these the most on your wedding day, sealing your union with a kiss and afterwards sipping champagne. To ensure you lipstick stays on and looks divine, make sure you lips stay moisturized. Avidly apply vaseline or another moisturizer prior to getting your makeup done. Before applying your lipstick, apply lipliner to ensure your lipstick does not run. Then, apply a long lasting BUT moisterizing stick, with a lip gloss over top. This way, the lip gloss will be the layer that will come off and is much easier to touch up!
