Your wedding is the most important chapter in your life and you want it to be perfect. Finding that gorgeous ensemble, picking the best jewellery and finalising your makeup is crucial for getting your look right. While you may be following a diet and working on your skin and hair, it’s also important to ensure that you get your makeup right. So, here are some common bridal makeup mistakes that you need to watch out for.  



1. Pay attention to your lips

You can always use a matte lipstick rather than a creamy or glossy one. Prepare your lips with a lip primer for long-lasting colour. If your lipstick is super-glossy, there is a chance of smudging. Also, if you’re going to wear your hair down, you need to be extra careful to prevent streaking. So, save yourself from those awkward pictures and ensure that you get the lips right.



2. Wrong foundation shade

If your foundation makes you look chalky, it’s time to bid adieu to your shade. A common  faux pas is using a foundation that a few shades lighter. Ensure that you do a test, before finalising that look. Choose a shade that blends closely to your skin tone. 


3. Maximum lift for your lashes

Clumpy eyelashes are not the best look for your wedding day. Choose your eyelash extensions well in advance. This will also ensure that you don’t have any allergies on D-day. Also, make sure that you opt for waterproof mascara so that you’re prepared for those emotional moments.



4. Skipping your makeup trial

You know you are in trouble when you miss your pre-wedding makeup trial. It’s essential that you book an appointment with your makeup artist and go for a trial. She will help you understand the kind of look you need to have on your special day. You can also share references so that you both are on the same page. As they say, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.


5. Never try something new

Your wedding day is the most special occasion in your life, so ensure that you don’t experiment with your look on that day. So for instance, don’t try those heavy smoky eyes if you’ve never tried it in your life. If you’re not comfortable pulling it off, your wedding day isn’t the occasion. Stick to what suits you best.



6. Waxing a day before

It’s advisable that you don’t plan your monthly waxing routine close to your wedding dates. There are chances that your skin might break out into rashes. Also, if you’re trying a new treatment like laser hair removal, ensure that you have a good enough window of time to prevent any mishaps!
