Make-up styles that photograph well
When you’re planning a wedding, how you look on the big day is likely to be one of the most important factors, but how will this translate to the photographs captured by your wedding photographer in Liverpool?
Here are some top tips on make-up styles that photograph well, courtesy of Matthew Rycraft Photography.
Beauty experts advise that preparation is key. The night before, exfoliate gently, then apply a generous layer of moisturiser. On the morning itself, only apply more moisturiser if your skin is very dry. If it isn’t, use a layer of primer instead before applying foundation.
Don’t use a foundation with built-in sun protection – this can look mask-like on film. Use a mineral-based translucent powder to set your base. Follow this by adding some matte bronzer to add definition to your face, as this can counteract the effects of a flash or bright sunlight. You can also apply some blusher to the apples of your cheeks to stop you looking washed out.
A soft, smoky eyeshadow in a shade like brown or grey will help define your eyes. Curl your eyelashes before adding a few coats of mascara – make it a waterproof one if you’re likely to cry! If you like, a few false lashes at the corner of each eye can create a subtle, cat-like effect that will look great on camera.
A nude or pink lipstick is best for a wedding, as it won’t clash with your dress or flowers. Apply several coats with a lip brush, blotting between each application.
The final step is to use a make-up setting spray, so your look remains pristine and picture-perfect throughout the day.
