How To Do Your Wedding MakeupIt's traditional for brides to look for makeup artists to do their makeup; however, if you don't have money to hire an artist or you are uncomfortable when your makeup is done by someone else, you don't have to worry. This is because you can apply makeup by yourself.
To effectively do this you need to follow the following steps:

Here you need to use an eye cream and face primer. The eye cream helps you to easily apply the under eye concealer while the primer helps you to improve you skin's texture for foundation application.
Step 2: Do your eyes
Before anything, you need to prepare your lids using a lid primer. Here you should apply a tight line color at the root of the lashes using an eyeliner sealer and stiff brush. For ideal results, you should ensure that the eye shadow that you use is pigment rich. To catch any falling eye shadow, you should use small amounts of powder.

Here you need to apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and then blend upward along your cheekbones. For ideal results, you should apply bronzer to the high plains of your face such as the jaw line and under the cheekbones. To give your cheekbones a chisel look you should apply light colored powder under the bronzer and blend.
Step 4: Do your lips
For a perfect look you need to do your lips. For a natural look, you should apply lip stain then finish with gloss. To mute the color of the stain as desired, you should add light color gloss. You should be cautious and avoid adding too much light color gloss.

If you don't have long eye lashes, you should consider applying false lashes. The good side with false lashes is that they aid in popping your eyes which is great for pictures. For a natural look, you should go for individual lashes.
Here you should apply the individual lashes to the lash line alternating sizes then complete the look by applying a thin black liner on top in order to hide the roots of lashes.
