Wedding Makeup – Beauty tips every bride needs to know

Your wedding day is likely to be the most photographed day of your life! So make sure you look picture perfect with The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor’s top 5 beauty & wedding makeup tips ahead of your big day.

Take care of your skin

Getting your skin into tip top condition is super important and it’s worth getting into a really good routine three to six months ahead of your wedding. If you have any specific skin concerns, now is the time to seek advice from a skincare professional who can advise and prescribe the best products for you and yes we know it’s been said a million times before but drink water, lots of it.

Wedding Makeup Trial

Ideally you want to do this around a month before your wedding. Top tip – if you’re planning on fake tanning for your wedding make sure you fake tan before your trial with the same product so your make-up artist can get the right colour-match.

To SPF or not to SPF

So this is a debatable one. Many make-up artists recommend bending the rules on your big day and going without an SPF as the flash in your photography can bounce off the skin making you look washed out. But if you’re having an outdoor wedding in the middle of summer you’re going to want to feel protected so pop a sunscreen underneath your foundation and get a few test shots done ahead of your big day. 

Give yourself plenty of time for wedding makeup

You don’t want to feel rushed so make sure you allow at least 45 mins for your makeup and longer if you’re having individual or strip lashes applied on the day.

Keep a few key products on-hand

You’ll want to reapply lipstick and powder regularly throughout the day so ask a bridesmaid to pop them in her bag for you. At Delamere Manor our brides have access to their very own Bridal Parlour. Situated on the ground floor and just a short distance to the Courtyard, Terrace, and Nightclub, it’s the perfect retreat for the bridal party for those make-up touch-ups and hair adjustments throughout the day.
