4 Steps To A Timeless Prenup Photos
You’ve changed your facebook status to “Engaged” and you’ve literally screamed “I’M ENGAGED!!” in all social media rooftops, and now it’s time to announce your happily ever after to the world with the perfect engagement photo session. But what about your makeup for those photos? Sure we all know that wedding day beauty is of the utmost importance, but these photos should also stand the test of time — and that starts with your beauty look. Here are my tips for you to be ready in four easy steps.
1. Get Started on Your Skin
I’ll never get tired of saying this: The bridal glow all starts with taking great care of your skin! Lots of water consumption should be first on your list, but after you schedule your engagement photo session it’s time to get serious about skincare. See my blog here for the complete skin care tips.
2. Show Off Your Skin With Barely-There Foundation
Wedding photos and lighting can be more intense, but engagement portraits are often shot during the day, with nothing but natural sunlight to highlight your features. Take advantage of that lighting and go for a foundation that makes you look and feel as natural and easy as possible — after all these portraits won’t feel as formal as your big day photos. Never a face full of caked on makeup; the idea here is to let your natural beauty shine through. It all starts with prepping the skin, and adding coverage slowly, as needed, so that you look more au naturel.
3. Be A Blushing Chick
The glow is the first step, and now you want to add that “I’m so in love” rosy flush. They’ll never know you aren’t a naturally blushing bride with a gel based cheek color. Don’t overdo your blushes. Always make sure that it is well blended on your skin as if you are not wearing any at all.
4. A Natural Lip
While you want some color, a bold lip could be the difference between timeless photos and something that looks trend-driven and outdated 10 years from now. A nude lip color with a little bit of a gloss just to give you a dewy lip, without any stickiness, and just a hint of color.
