Make-Up Survival Tips for Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor weddings are a real charm, with the fresh air and open ambience. However, carrying your makeup can be a pain. I have seen many make-up meltdowns at outdoor summer weddings. Here, I am going to share some wedding hair and makeup tips.

Get The Eye Shadow Right

This can be a challenge if you haven’t been using eye shadow consistently. Some tips:

  • Use a concealer brush to apply the concealer. You should move from the lash to the brow.
  • For oily eyelids, I recommend using a dull matte product. This should be applied before the concealer.
  • I advise using two layers of eye shadow, but ditch the creamy ones. They tend to get thick and greasy after some time.
  • I prefer liquid eyeliners. They always turn out more durable than the pencil variety.
  • Being a bride, you cannot be too sure about crying—it is better to be prepared. Use waterproof mascara.

Get The Foundation Right

All types of summer beauty tips seem to agree about one thing—glowing skin is good but shiny, greasy isn’t. The difference lies in the manner in which foundation has been used. To make your face subtly glowy, tauter, and weather proof, use the following tips:

  • For oily skin, use an oil-free moisturizer. Some of them contain special ingredients to mop-up all the oil.
  • If your skin is too oily, don’t use too much moisturizer. Just dab a bit and let it get absorbed before stepping out.
  • For dry skin, there are no real worries. Moisturize well and rub the liquid with some intent.
  • It is better to use a good concealer to hide the acne and spots. If you have really good skin, don’t use too much moisturizer. A spot concealer does the job. Just dab it wherever you have blemishes.

I suggest choosing a foundation that is easily absorbed without any residue. You can also use a dedicated foundation brush.

Get The Blush And Lips Right

  • I recommend using a cheek stain. You can do a bit of dusting and blush around it.
  • Pay attention to moisturizing your lips. Use a good, non-flavored balm. This also helps the lip pencil to move easily.
  • Using the lip pencil and a big pout, color your lips. This increases the staying power of the lipstick.

Most importantly, try to have fun and don’t stress over small issues!
