Bridal Makeup Hacks for Outdoor Weddings

Spring and summer weddings held outdoors are always fun affairs. However, a major concern for the bride and bridal party is how their makeup will hold up in the warmer weather. Check out these handy tips to make sure you don’t have a makeup meltdown.

Foundation

If your skin is naturally oily, make sure to hydrate with an oil-free moisturizer. Before applying foundation, make sure to apply an anti-shine product. Those with good skin can just skip the foundation and use a spot concealer to smooth out any blemishes as well as under the eyes and around corners of the nose. To make sure your foundation stays put, apply an oil-free formula with a foundation brush. Powder your face with a small brush after application.

Eyes

For women whose eyeshadow tends to fade quickly, use a concealer brush to apply concealer all over the eyelid, from lash line to brow. This will help the shadow adhere to skin longer. If your lids are extra oily, apply a mattifying product first before covering with concealer. Finish it off with a dusting of powder. Stay away from creamy formulas, which tend to oil up or apply two layers instead of one. Also opt for longer-lasting liquid liner instead of eye pencil liners. Waterproof mascara is definitely recommended.

Blush

Just like the rest of your makeup, stay away from creamy formulas, which tend to streak and invite shine. Opt for a soft, powdery formula that will look fresh all day and absorb excess oil in the skin. To make sure your blush lasts the whole day, apply a cheek stain, then dust a matching powder blush on top of it.

Lips

Before applying lipstick, make sure to moisturize your lips with balm. Outline your lips with a lip pencil to prevent your lipstick from bleeding. Beauty experts suggest using a medium-toned concealer as a base before the lip pencil. After applying lipstick, blot with tissue, brush some loose powder on top and apply another coat of lipstick again. Add a touch of gloss and lipstick sealer for a final touch.

For quick touchups, be sure to have a handy kit containing a compact, lipstick, powder-free blotting papers, and a small tube of concealer with a tiny synthetic brush.
