Wake up. Make up. Your big day is soon (2021 still qualifies for “soon”) and you want to look your best. So whatever your make up style, here are some tips to keep your beach wedding make up looking effortlessly flawless. Just like your wedding should be! These tips can help your wedding party too, if you are having bridesmaids.  All of you want to look picture perfect for the ceremony and the photographs of your special day.

Tips for Beach Wedding Make Up

Make Up Budget: Can you afford to hire a pro? Go for it! If you have chosen an affordable beach wedding package you may be able to. Either way, you should look like yourself on your wedding day. Not some overdone, shiny version of yourself. You can also visit a make up counter for a “trial” and get tips and tricks to use on your wedding day. Some places, like MAC, may do the make over complimentary but prefer you purchase a product or two. And of course, don’t forget to tip. The important thing is to look natural and relaxed…that Florida sunshine is bright!

Not Your Everyday Event: Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event. But when it comes to make up, your look shouldn’t be too far from your everyday look. Consider adding some highlighter/bronzer or a fun new lip color…just not too dark so so that all you see is lips in the bright sunlight.  However, if you’ve never worn a smokey eye or red lipstick a day in your life, your wedding day may not be the time to try it out. You may also wish to ехfоlіаtе your skin with a natural mіхturе оf оlіvе оіl, brоwn ѕugаr аnd а hіnt оf lеmоn. This wіll hеlр уоur mаkеuр blеnd еffоrtlеѕѕlу оn ѕоft, glоwіng ѕkіn.

You’ll end up worse off than when you started with over-information, contradicting product reviews, and feeling like you need a small loan to buy new make up.

If you already have make up that you use and love, stick with that product line and make sure it’s stocked and fresh. Another good resource is a local makeup outlet store. The employees can help you whatever your budget and you can mix and match brands according to your beach wedding make up needs.

Special Touch: Maybe you want that beach glow for your wedding day. Consider a spray tan and you’ll look like you’ve already honey-mooned in the islands! Best advice here is to do a trial run. Try a spray tan MONTHS in advance because it take a couple weeks to fully wear off. Even if this is a destination wedding, you can find the spray company, like Mystic Tan, and locate a tanning salon with comparable services both locally and at your destination.

Beach Specific: So the main difference between an indoor wedding and an outdoor wedding revolves around the sun (pardon the pun). For a beach wedding you may want to consider a make with SPF to avoid a burn, depending on the time of day and duration of your wedding. Waterproof and long-wear products are also great for any wedding day, but especially at the beach. Keep a lip gloss and powder on hand for touch ups. And don’t forget to powder and gloss before your post wedding photos. Тhіѕ роwdеr wіll hеlр уоur fасе ѕtау аѕ mаttе аѕ роѕѕіblе wіth nо ѕhiny ѕроtѕ.
