What’s the most frequent request a bride poses to her
make up artist on her wedding day?
LOOKING BEAUTIFUL, that’s what Maria Vittoria Emili,
make up artist and private make up trainer, assures us.
We’ll give you some advice to choose the right make up
for your day, and the steps to follow in order to look beautiful.
The expert says that the first step, in case you decide to have
a make up artist, is to choose a qualified one in advance.
This might even be six months before the wedding in order
to be able to try several times before achieving the most
appropriate make up for the bride.
It means that, if, for example, the bride usually wears red lipstick,
there’s no reason for her to give it up on her wedding day.
There is no particular rule for wedding make up.
Something I would really discourage is the bride and her mother
to wear the same make up.
Apart from that, go ahead with classics such as mascara,
better if waterproof to resist tears.
Don’t forget your eyebrows. They must be finely underlined in
order to guarantee a harmonic look. However, what you really
must aim at is “brightness”, so choose a foundation that
matches the natural skin tone.
It is the right moment for pale complexion: it particularly suits
brides because it recalls the ideal of pure beauty. I use different
sparkling powders to add a velvety bright look.
On your wedding day dark circles are banned, if the previous
night you couldn’t sleep use a concealer: the orange ones,
for example, will minimize the anti-aesthetic bluish shade.
Don’t forget: it’s important to know that some “special cares”
must be adopted in advance:
almost two weeks before your wedding have a face treatment
to clean your skin so to make it look pure and bright.
