To ensure that you look just as stunning as your surroundings, here some steps for you to follow to wear beach makeup for your wedding. By following these simple techniques that were used at this very beach bridal session, you are guaranteed to look flawless.

From Briggitte of Bloom Makeup Artistry;

 

1. Exfoliate face and lips, not only will this make your skin smooth for foundation but it will also help the longevity of your lip color!

 

2. Donâ€t apply gloss (or use very little) until after the wedding ceremony and formal photos. This will keep your lips matte and dry which helps the lip color last longer throughout the day. It can also help avoid the nasty highlights that can appear on shinny lips in photos.

 

3. For the sake of the photography and having your makeup look beautiful in pictures, a bit extra makeup is necessary. If you are hesitant to use false lashes and eyeliner remember that makeup artists have a large selection of natural looking false lashes that when used are barely detectable and soft eyeliner will only accentuate your eyes in photos.

 

4. For afternoon and evening weddings use a shimmery highlighter , but if you are tying the knot in daylight opt for highlighting with a shade lighter, matte powder. The sunshine is brighter at the beach, so take that into consideration.

 

5. Blush and bronzer should be matte. Save the shimmer for the highlight of the cheekbone and the browbone. You can use a light gold and bronze for dark and olive skin tones. Remember, extra blush and bronzer should look natural but it is important for “looking alive†when flashes, etc. make you look pale and washed out.

 

6. Salty air causes excessive water loss from the skin. To avoid dry skin be sure that days before your wedding you drink lots of water so that you minimize dehydration. In order to have smooth skin the day of the wedding tone and moisturize your skin, let the moisturizer soak in for at least twenty minutes. If there is any excess left gently dab off with a dry cotton pad.

 

7. For a final touch set makeup and avoid shine with a translucent loose powder. If you are prone to an oily t-zone keep a small touch up bag with extra powder and things like lipstick that will need to be re-applied.

 

8. Get a facial, waxing and threading treatments two or more days before the wedding. By doing this you avoid redness, irritation and the possibility of makeup not sticking to the skin due extreme smoothness.

 

9. When choosing a foundation make sure to choose one that best suites your skin type. If you have oil prone skin try a matte cream foundation, if you have normal to dry skin use a liquid foundation to achieve a more hydrated, glow.

I'm hispanic and I find it really hard to match my skin tone.  I'm afraid that the foundation will be ok to the eye but when the bulbs start to flash I'll look like I have a mask on since it will look too light.  Are there any products you recommend for Hispanic women?

Make sure to avoid any products with SPF, those are the ones that will cause that white cast on anyone's skin :) If you must do SPF, keep it a low number

Thank you all SO much for all this information! I'm really nervous about my makeup. I have tried multiple kinds of eyeliner, but for some reason it always ends up on the skin under my eyes. The weird part is that I only put it on my upper lid and I NEVER touch my eyes when I'm wearing it. So it's quite the mystery as to how it ends up smearing down under my eyes. Is there a particular eyeliner that anyone would suggest that is waterproof and stays put throughout the day? I'm so tired of ending up looking like I have raccoon eyes by mid day!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
