Get Pretty with Budget Wedding Makeup

Jul 8, 2008
Even though you can purchase low quality makeup for a cheap price, you'll want something better for your wedding day. Cheap makeup won't hold up throughout the day - so if you have to freshen up your makeup during a normal day, you'll definitely want to look for better quality makeup for your wedding. Unfortunately, the more expensive cosmetics in local department stores may be beyond your makeup budget. The following are a few tips for achieving the perfect makeup look on a budget:

Schedule Your Makeover Early

Most brides will schedule at least one makeup consultation before their weddings to get a good idea of which makeup styles will be most flattering. If you're planning to have your wedding during the peak season, it's important to arrange your makeup appointment well in advance. Doing so will give you the opportunity to take advantage of any discounts that come up, and will give you enough time find a makeup application style and product collection you like. After all, the last thing you want to do is to be scrambling to do your makeup before the wedding and be unhappy with the results.

Mail Order Cosmetics

It's hard to find high quality cosmetics in local pharmacy stores, but you might also find the price of department store cosmetics to be out of your budget. What to do? If you shop online, you'll have access to just about any type of makeup you're interested in, at a much better price than offline stores. Once you've had your professional makeup consultation, it will be easy to find the colors and products recommended at a significant discount. In some cases, you may even be able to order free samples that provide enough product to get you through your wedding.

Watch Fashion Magazines

If you aren't sure about what colors or makeup styles are trendy - and you don't want to pay for a makeup consultation - it might be helpful to study fashion magazines. There, you'll find a number of makeup tips to experiment with and suggestions about which colors will work best for you. It's also helpful to ask a trusted friend or family member which makeup styles look best on you. Play around with cheaper cosmetics until you achieve the look you're going for, but then be sure to invest in higher quality products that will last all day at your wedding.

You've been planning and arranging every detail of your wedding for months - the last thing you want to do is neglect your own appearance! In addition to your dress and shoes, you'll want to be sure that your hair, makeup, and nails all look perfect. While a makeup consultation can be helpful, you'll also need to make sure that you have good quality cosmetics on hand for your wedding day. Getting started on your makeup plans early will give you plenty of time to gather all the products and services that will help you look your best.
