Your guide to gorgeous wedding make up

Wedding make up by Alyson Sichenzia

Your wedding is one of the most important and memorable days of your life so you definitely want to look and feel amazing.  Most Brides,  want a glowing, natural, wedding makeup look.

Here are six steps to a DIY Classic Wedding Look: 
Step 1) Prep your skin by using hydrating non-greasy products. Be sure to choose a primer that is serum based.
Step 2) Start with the eyes by prepping the area with an eye primer then start adding on that gorgeous, natural smoky eye pallet. The eyes are the window to the soul so if you are going to make a feature pop definitely make the eyes the focal point.
Step 3) As for your complexion, go with a light to buildable coverage just enough to cover, but not feel heavy or unnatural. Especially with the South Florida, you don’t want to wear heavy caked on makeup in the sun or heat.
Step 4) Apply a beautiful, natural highlight, and contour for dimension and glow.
Step 5) Apply eye-popping lashes for added glam.
Step 6) Pick the lip color that will say “I Do”. Go with something pretty and bold.
Most importantly if you have the budget, consider a professional makeup artist like Alyson. To perfect your look and be the most confident,  invest in a consultation with her before the big day so that you can strategize on what overall image you want for that day beforehand.  The last thing you need on your wedding day is any surprises. Remember its one day in your entire life and you want it to be picture perfect.
