Each bride has different taste and of course each venue where each wedding is celebrated is different too. Sometimes this goes unnoticed and we forget to take into account the setting where you will carry out the most important celebration of your life. You should think about what type of wedding you will have and choose your beauty look according to the environment of your wedding.

If your wedding is during the day, your look will be totally different from that of a night wedding. Bridal makeup is less ornate and more natural, features are defined less intensely and lighter shades are used for day weddings.

For a wedding that takes place at night you can use much stronger tones, make slanted eyes or smokey eyes, the lips should be more intense and although an elegant makeup should be sought, the makeup in general will stand out more than in a day wedding.

The starting point is the colors you will use since “these give rise to different effects in our image. They can both illuminate and dull the face, it all depends on how well they are used, ” says Erika Hernández, professional makeup artist. Also keep in mind that “it is very important to choose the tones that favor you and that go according to the tone of your skin, hair and eyes, since only then can you feel comfortable” and therefore you can enjoy your wedding to the fullest.

Bridal firms offer us more and more options of wedding dresses so that each one can choose their style according to their personality and the style of their wedding. For this reason, we must choose bridal makeup according to the dress that we have chosen.

You can play with the balance and the importance that you want to give to every detail of your bridal look. For example, if you have chosen a dress with many details that is made of a voluminous fabric, you can compensate with a simple and natural makeup. If, on the other hand, you will be wearing a light fabric dress and few jewels, you can give more prominence to your bridal makeup, highlighting the eyes or adding color to the lips.
