Makeup Monday: Etsy Weddings






Today's Makeup Monday was specially created for the launch of Etsy Weddings. I'm a longtime shopper and occasional seller on Etsy, so I was really excited to be a part of this (and even more excited to see upcoming features)! You can read the step by step instructions on the site, but here are a few extra tips for your wedding day makeup:

 - Don't stray too far from the makeup routine you are comfortable with; just perfect it. You want to look like you!
- Avoid products with SPF on your big day; it doesn't photograph well. If you've ever wondered why your face looks ghostly pale in flash photographs, it's probably because you had SPF in your moisturizer or makeup.
- Keep blotting papers nearby to soak up excess oil without having to cake on makeup.
- Do a test run before the day of your wedding. Check the makeup in natural light, artificial light, and with flash.
- And of course, go for the waterproof mascara and liner. That should go without saying;)

  13. I had no idea SPF was the reason some brides look pale in photos. I will be sure all the brides I know are aware of this for their big day, I am sure they will appreciate how it improves their wedding photos.

  14. This is beautiful! Not that I'm getting married anytime soon to have to do a make-up DIY but, knowing that SPF causes that look, I'll be sure not to wear it later.

    Thanks for the super helpful tips!!

  22. I hardly wore any makeup for my wedding 4 months ago! I really only needed to darken around my eyes and then I was good. Brides should really be encouraged to think less is more.

  24. The simplicity of this look is so gorgeous. I still can't get over the lipcolor! You said it's a stain, so I'd guess it's an OCC stain.

  34. Hey Keiko!

    I've been following your blog for a while and just saw this post! I'm getting married in 2+ weeks and have been looking everywhere for a stain that color! I looked everywhere and I can't find that color for sale- where did you find it? Or is there another similar color that you'd suggest?

    Thanks!
