With its warm weather, sunny days, and beautiful outdoor venues, summer is the ideal season for a gorgeous wedding. However, the heat can also quickly lead to a makeup meltdown for brides who are unprepared. Here are a few of our best summer wedding makeup tips to help you look and feel your best on your special day.
Add a Pop of Color
Summer is the perfect season to include a pop of color in your wedding makeup. Add a touch of playfulness to your look with a bold lip in bright red or vibrant pink, or opt for a dramatic eyeshadow color instead. We recommend only choosing one statement piece in your makeup look to avoid too many contrasting colors.
Keep it Matte
Avoid any additional oils on your skin for your wedding by opting for matte products instead. A matte foundation, powder and bronzer work great for keeping your skin light and dry all day long. Moisturizers can often make your skin appear oily as well so feel free to skip these and any extra lotions on your wedding day.
Protecting your skin is crucial at all times of year, but even more important during an outdoor wedding in the summer. Many foundations, creams and moisturizers have SPF included which make great options to include in your wedding day makeup routine. Sunscreen face mists are also an easy way to touch up your SPF as needed throughout your wedding.
Use Waterproof Products
In addition to using waterproof mascara on the day of your wedding, we recommend using waterproof products for every step of your eye makeup. Not only with this help avoid streaks on a hot day, you can also shed a tear without having to worry about your makeup running in the moment.
Have a Touch Up Kit
One of the most important details of your summer wedding makeup includes having a touch-up kit on hand for emergencies. Have a member of your bridal party or a family member keep the kit close by for any last minute touch ups. Some of our must-have items for your kit include blotting papers, face powder and lipstick for those moments you want to reapply.
