I don't wear or own any make up but do you think it is something i should try for my wedding? when I have worn it in the past I have not felt comfortable and feel like a bit of a clown any tips of what to do will be very appreciated.
maybe do a few make up trials and see how u feel, i done this by going into boots chemist and speaking to the no7 make up woman but its also fine for you to be your natural self without make up . i'm sure you will be a stunning bride either way x
thank you Martha will look into doing make up trials and see how it looks x
I dont wear much either but having makeup professionally done feels miles different. If youre uncomfortable with foundation (like I am) try some tinted moisturizer or primer. Even just a bit of makeup will make the world of difference :)
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable as well as looking good. Most make up counters in big stores have a consultant who will be happy to make an appointment to give you a make over. Just be prepared that some are better at listening to what you want than others and if you get one that 'plasters' it on then still try others as there may be one you like. Vikky's idea of tinted moisturizer is good. No harm in trying any of it and experimenting and then you can make an informed choice.
Hi go into Boots, Debenhams or John Lewis and have a make over with the girls there :)
I would talk to the make up artists n boots etc like other people have suggested. I dont wear much make up very often but found them very helpful x
maybe have a few trials. explain that you don't set make-up, the natural look is lovely so you can stay true to yourself with minimum make-up x
I'm rarely wear makeup but I'm debating on having makeup on. I'm in the same boat x
I'm the same - never wear any make-up. I'm having a trial with boots and with my daughter and see who's best :)
I never wear make up on a dad to day basis but on my wedding day I did and I felt like a new woman I just said not to much it looks lovely on my pics x
I'd say have a trial. You don't have to have it caked on go for the natural look xxx
Have a few trials and opt for a natural look. Bit of gloss and colour to your cheeks. But make sure you feel comfortable that’s key. With or without I’m sure you will look stunning. - unfortunately for myself I have to wear it as I am starting to get dark circles xxx
Im not a make up person at all but from what ive been researching a lot of other brides have natural make up done just for photos sake xx
I hate wearing make up, but I went to Debenhams and got some really light make up and I really didn't even notice it on. Looks much nicer on the photos xx
Get a make up artist that specialises in natural make up. You will regret it if don’t wear it as the pictures don’t come out as good. If you don’t wear any having make up on at all will make it feel caked on but I promise you from someone who only wears lip gloss and mascara you will be surprised how good it looks x
Visit a Clarins at John Lewis & ask for a natural look trial ...& ask for samples to take away .... Look at your girlfriends who wear make up if any look lovely & natural ask them if they can do you a trail with your new samples ...... If you like it book them to do you on the day ....will keep the costs down a lot !!
I never wear make up, and like you, thought I should try. I opted to do it myself and practice a few times. I just went with foundation, lip gloss and mascara. Just to keep myself looking as natural as possible with make up on. It did let me have an even skin tone :)
Edit: I did have a trial at Debenham with urban decay, and at boots with No. 7. I did buy what was used from no. 7 and used that on our wedding day
I dont wear make up, a friend did mine but made it very light it does make your pictures look better I think xx
I don’t wear make up everyday. But I own a lot and I have been used to wearing it in the past. And I still like to put it on when I dress up. However I think it takes a lot of time and practice to get it right on yourself. If you do get stuff yourself hen definitely ask at the shops for tips or something. If you get someone else to do t for you then I would explain you want a natural look.
If it's not something you wear stay minimal like neutral eyeshadow and some lip gloss x
I hate wearing make up unless I have an interview or a party which are both very rare but am wearing it for my wedding day x
I don’t wear a lot of make up but for my day I’d like to treat myself so I got a make up artist Xx
I never wear make up but I had it for my wedding! A make up artist came and did myself, my mum, and three bridesmaids! It looked really good and didn't feel heavy or awkward at all!
Personally I would do tinted moisturiser, a bit of blusher, mascara and a tinted lip balm. Just because it will bring your face out more in photos.
I'm having the same issue. I think just worth getting a trial and see, go with minimal and something natural maybe? That's what I'm thinking anyway
Ask a few places for a trial as you can have a natural look, simple and beautiful x
Try a natural look.before hand. Get in touch with a good make up artist see what they can do in a trial before hand
I cant reccomend bare minerals enough, i dont wear makeup most of the time and have a very rare allergy to something which is in almost every product (make up, food, drink and skincare!) they were amazing, have a lot of very light prodicrs that gice a smooth perfect skin finish, and last all day, best thing is i totally forgot i was wearing any! One of their team did my face for me, talked to me anout the produxta and even offered tutorials on how to use it! Fab team, fab staff i went to the store in Windsor but they have them nationwide. Xx
You don't have to do anything you don't want to :) why don't you get a trial done and see how you feel? I don't wear much make up at all but I enjoyed having mine done.
Does you partner love you as you look now? If so then you don't need make up. My wife had a trial before our wedding and having seen the pictures I'm glad she didn't have it done on the big day as she looked nothing like she does normally. In the end her sister helped do the basics and she looked beautiful
You can go to a counter like MAC or Bobbie Brown and they will do a make up lesson, tell them how you feel about make up and they can help you find a natural look to give you a starting point
Try mineral make up such as bare minerals. It’s good for your skin and you just swirl it on with a brush. Most department stores have a counter and QVC often have kits.
I don't wear makeup but went to Body Shop with niece (also my bridesmaid) and we explained I just wanted something light and simple. They were really helpful. Gave us a list of all the products. My niece bought and did my make up on the day and I was really comfortable with it. Loads of lovely comments about it too.
If you want to DIY or get a friend to help rather than hire a make up artist try Bare minerals powder foundation as it won't feel as heavy on your skin... go to your local department store and they'll match your colour and give you a sample to play with before you buy. Their warmth powder is also good for adding a little colour to your cheeks. Don't buy their expensive brushes to apply with if you'll never use them again you can get good enough ones from shops like primark. Other brands also do matching and let you take samples so you could try a few until you find something you are happier with. This way you aren't spending loads of money on something that doesn't work for you.
Body shop do an all in one face base which is just powder but covers quite well too without being heavy.
Bare coloured lips and maybe a touch of mascara may also give you a little boost. Maybe a touch of eyeshadow along your socket line.
If you feel like a clown in make up go for something very simple just to boost your confidence on the day rather than trying too much or you'll feel more self conscious. Or build it up before the day so you get more familiar with seeing yourself in it.
Once you've had a try out of things if you are still happier with no make up then go for none as how you feel on the day is the most important x
Ive only just recently started wearing a bit of make up this month. Never really bothered with it before. Im definately going full blown girly for my big day though as i only plan on marrying once 😂 xx
Instead of foundation you could go for a tinted moisturiser? It will feel really light and still give you abit of coverage
Do what YOU feel comfortable in. X
Try bare minerals. They do foundation and eye shadows. Maybe get your eyelashes and eyebrows tinted if they are light for a more "made up" look c
For someone who doesn’t wear make up it may be worth asking a friend to do it for you as you don’t want to spend loads of money on it. Just remember your future spouse loves you for you so you don’t want to look like someone completely different. 🙂 x
I never wore any.
Why wear it on your wedding day if you not comfy in it. Plus your h2b not used to you wearing it why be someone your not. If your not happy in make up you font have to wear it. Be yourself be comfy be happy x
I don't wear it at all,but had it done mildly for my wedding day.My daughter and her friend did it between them.It looked great,wasn't over done and I still looked like me lol xx
My sister rarely wears makeup and I did hers for her wedding. We did a couple of trials beforehand to work out what she wanted. The only thing I did slightly heavier than I’d seen her wear before was eye makeup, just to make them stand out a little bit more.
We used tinted moisturiser and brown mascara to keep it toned down x
