The Best Beauty Tips for Perfect Wedding Photos

Wedding Tips & Advice

You want to look your best on your wedding day, so you get the perfect dress and hire a great hairstylist to create your updo. But you also need to come up with a plan for your face if you want to look your best for your big day. There are plenty of beauty ideas that you can find online, but there are some tips that will look good on all women on their wedding days. Here are the top three tips that you should use to look your best in your wedding photos.

Exaggerate Your Makeup

This is a great tip for anyone who’s interested in having beautiful photos that don’t need to be touched up. Certain types of lighting can wash out your features, so it’s worthwhile to put in some extra time to make your eye makeup just a little bit more defined and heavy on your face. You should also go for a bolder lip than what you might otherwise use on yourself. The small details that you add to your face will make the photos look more professional, even if you’re not used to wearing makeup. You can do this by incorporating natural-looking or glamorous techniques.

Frame Your Eyes

Your eyes are one of the most expressive parts of your face, and you want to play up the part of your face that people are already naturally drawn toward. Consider adding some dramatic eyeshadow. You can also use eyelash extensions to create your fantasy eye look. According to, eyelash extensions can add incredible volume, widening and brightening the eyes. You should also make sure that your eyebrows are well-groomed and filled in where they’re sparse.

Create a Creamy Complexion

The skin on your face is what makes you truly beautiful, so make sure that you prepare your skin several weeks before your wedding so that your skin is radiant. Check out foundations several weeks in advance. According to StyleCaster, you can also use marula oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, or vaseline with your foundation to give yourself more of a glow. Otherwise, you can also talk to a beauty consultant. If you have freckles, don’t feel like you have to hide them. Freckles are in style right now, so you can let those beauty marks show through by using a lighter foundation if you want.


When you’re going to get married, there are a lot of things that you need to think about before your wedding. Don’t forget to create your look by incorporating beauty strategies weeks before the wedding and choosing foundation, mascara, lipstick and other beauty products for the big day.

You want to remember your wedding day forever, so make sure you get the best photographer to help you preserve your memories!
