Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, this fall the choices in beauty and makeup are endless. I chatted with Sarah Davidson, from Beauty By Sarah D about her approach to creating a flawless, photo-ready look for your special day, or any day!
This is what Sarah had to say:
“When doing makeup consultations with the bride prior to her wedding day, I usually get two requests,
1. “Can you make my skin look flawless?”
2. “Can you make my eyes POP!!!”
In answering them I say “No Problem!!!”
Most brides when they ask me to make their skin look flawless, they know that the products I am going to apply on their skin that day can make a huge impact. But really, it is also up to them, to help with the process.
Skincare and daily routine’s are so very important to establish before the wedding day. If I have a bride who is really stressed out and has not been eating properly or not getting enough sleep and not taking care of her skin, then that can really make a difference on how her skin might look and feel on the wedding day. Nightly cleansing of the skin and feeding it with the proper moisturizers should become part of your bedtime routine. Exfoliating the skin once or twice a week, will really help to remove any dead skin cells that have developed over the summer months.
And for the second request, making the eyes “POP”, well that is also a step that the bride can help with.
As a makeup artist, I can choose eye shadow colours and eye liners that would be very complementary to the bride’s eye shape and colour. The application and blending of products is key. But what I find makes the biggest impact to the eye area is how the EYEBROWS look.
Take the time to shape those brows before the wedding day. Eyebrows are usually overlooked, or sometimes they have been over plucked or over waxed. If you find your brows too thin, try to grow them in. If your eyebrows need some cleaning up, try to do that a week or two before the wedding day. Not the day before, in case you have any kind of reaction or flair ups.
So to be really Photo Ready, get plenty of sleep, feed your skin properly (from the inside and out), and remember to wear your sunscreen. Even though the seasons are changing, the sun can still burn and damage the skin, causing your skin to peel and to be sensitive.”
