Kate Middleton...Self make-up for wedding
The Key is To Look Like Yourself, Only Better

A friend to me she chose to do her own wedding makeup because She wanted her husband to be to recognize her as she walked down the aisle as the same person She met on the first date and I totally agreed with her.

If you wear little make-up in your regular life, your wedding day is not the day to try out a smokey eye. You should look like you, only enhanced. The same rule holds true if you are a huge make-up junkie like Kim Kardashian. When she walked down the aisle at her 2011 wedding in a full face of make-up, she still looked like Kim Kardashian.

Should You Have a Pro Do Your Makeup?

Many brides get their hair done professionally for their wedding and many of these stylists do make-up, too. If you're booking a pro for your hair, ask if you can have your make-up done, too. Make sure to consult with the artist and do a trial run before your big day. You don't want your wedding day to be a big surprise, make-up-wise or you know that friend of yours who really knows make-up. Enlist her help

If Kate Middleton can also do her own makeup for her wedding, I suppose you can, too. Unless, of course, you have never worn make-up in your life, in which case you might ask a friend to help you out.

The Most Important Part of Your Makeup: Your Skin Tone

It doesn't matter how big your eyes are or how glossy your lips look, if your skin looks blotchy or oily, you won't look your best on your wedding day. Your first priority should be making sure your skin looks great, then move on to your eyes, cheeks and lips.

Pick Your Eyes or Your Mouth

A basic rule of make-up is to either play up your eyes or your mouth. Play up both and you risk looking like a clown. So if you decide to go all-out on your eye make-up, keep your lips light with a gloss or a light pink lipstick. If you want to play up your full lips, do so with a bright or deep color, but keep your eyes relatively light.

This is the Day to Whip Out the Eyelash Curler

Unless you're one of those people with such amazingly long eyelashes you are regularly asked if you use Latisse, you'll benefit from an eyelash curler. Curling lashes will make your eyes "pop." It's good to heat eyelash curler for like 3 seconds with a blowdryer before  curling the lashes. Just be sure to test the curler first on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot.
Some women with super short eyelashes go the false lashes route. I'd advise getting them professionally done, but some of my friends are really good at applying their own and swear it's super easy.

Two Words: Waterproof. Mascara.

Perhaps you will be in that 5 percent of women who don't tear up at some point at their wedding, but if you're not, today is the day to whip out the waterproof mascara. And ask your maid of honor to carry a tissue for you. Also, if you have light skin and blonde hair, don't wear black mascara, brown is your better bet.

Prime, Prime, Prime

Just as you would prime a wall before you paint, you should prime your face before you apply anything powder-based. I swear by eyeshadow primers -- nothing, and I mean NOTHING works better to keep your shadow from melting into your eyelid crease.  If you're wearing foundation or tinted moisturizer, apply primer beforehand. Primer fills in pores and fine lines and you'll find your foundation glides on effortlessly.

Invest in a Highlighter Pen

Although it's called a concealer, it's really a highlighter. Trust me, nothing brightens the face more.
Apply a bit under the eyes, above the brow, in the creases of the jowls (along your nose) and under the chin. Pat in with the pad of your finger. One great tip is to look in the mirror with your chin down. Apply Touche Eclat to the dark, shadowed spaces.

Oily Skin? Carry Blotting Sheets

To keep your oily skin at bay, definitely set your make-up with a loose powder before you walk down the aisle, but don't keep overpowdering skin as the day and night wear on. Instead, carry blotting papers. This way you don't have to keep powdering your face all night long. The blotting papers soak up the oils leaving your makeup in place.

Don't Go Overboard With the Fake Tan

If you like the tanned look, get a spray tan or at least use a self-tanner you know works. If you're new to fake tanning, be careful because the orange look on your wedding day is not cool. Also, self-tanners reek.

Exfoliate in the Weeks Up to the Wedding

To make sure your skin looks its best, exfoliate your face and neck once or twice a week a couple of months before the wedding. You can make your own facial scrub by mixing a generic white sugar with coconut oil, grapeseed oil or even olive oil or you can buy one.

How to Keep the Sweat at Bay

Wedding dresses are hot. Very, very hot. And since many weddings take place outdoors in the early summer months, you may find yourself a sweaty mess on the day of your wedding. But have no fear, I have major tips to keep you sweat-proof on your wedding day.

If you have tons of money at your disposal, I recommend getting Botox in your armpits a couple of weeks before the wedding. Kind of expensive though. The Botox will last you at least 3 months - enough time to get you through the wedding and the honeymoon with sweatless pits.
A less expensive option is to pack baby wipes and deodorant on your wedding day. Why the baby wipes? It's best not to apply deodorant to moist skin. Wipe your armpits with a baby wipe first, let it dry and then re-apply deodorant.

Just Say No to the Gum

Another good item to pack is breath strips. Today is not the day to be chewing gum or sucking on mints.
