How to Do Wedding Make-Up

By Julie Ndagire
For your make-up application, natural light is the best. If possible, set up an application table near a window.

Decide whether you’ll be having colour and or Black and white photography. For black and white, stay away from blue-red shades of make-up.

When choosing your lipstick, remember that lighter colours reflect more light which makes the lips seem bigger and does not look overpowering in photos. Colours that have to be avoided include bright pinks and reds.

Don’t get too trendy with your make up. You may think that sparkly eyeliner and gliter lipstick is a good idea today, but chances are you’ll look back at the pictures years from now and regret it.

Don’t skimp on blush. You don’t want to overdo it, but to avoid looking washed out you’ll need enough in your photographs.

Do try a test-run of what you’d like your make-up to look like on your wedding day a few weeks before the big event; don’t leave it until a few hours you walk down the aisle.
