The Do’s and Don’ts For A Wedding Day

  • Do not apply too much foundation on your wedding night, as it will not sit well on the skin’s surface when exposed to the heat caused by dancing and excitement.
  • To ensure makeup longevity, be sure to have a friend readily available to give you tissue or face paper to blot away any excess of facial oil or sweat throughout the night.
  • Choose the colors of your makeup that suits you and compliments your skin tone and eye color. Do not make these decisions based on the shade of your dress.

  • In general, the simpler and smaller the wedding, the more natural the makeup should be. The same can be said for a day wedding where the bright daylight will reveal heavy makeup.
  • If you and those around you are used to seeing you in the same makeup day in and day out, try something a little different. It doesn’t have to be drastic, but subtle changes can make a lot of difference.
  • Do not overboard or get carried away with too many changes and experiments. At the end of the day, you still want to look like you!
  • Stop using any medication or skin treatment before the wedding.
  • Make sure your skin is well moisturized before the wedding.

Liquid Eyeliner by Hala Ajam

Hala Ajam’s talks about the liquid Eyeliner

the liquid eyeliner creates a bolder effect, as the color is the richer and the line is more precise. when applying liquid liner, it is best done as close as possible to the mirror, as control is essential in application. Haul the eyelid taut and outwards, and draw a line close to your lash line. If you wish to go thicker, simply repeat the same movement above the original line and so forth.

Another trick to start with a thin line and get thicker as you go across then thinner to the outer corner and then upwards a bit, creating a feline appearance to the eye. The effect can be dramatic and will create a whole new shape to the eye. It can give you a retro look.

 

Pro tip:

If you want the eye to look raised and more open, draw a thin line across the upper lid, stopping just before the lash line ends. Then take the line upwards into a gentle curve. If you want your eyes to appear larger, simply follow the shape of your eye, and then continue with a small line just beyond the lashes.

Basic Makeup Tutorial: Blush, by Hala Ajam

Basic Makeup Tutorial: Blush, by Hala Ajam

This is another article from my book Face-To-Face which you can order online.

Blush

Blush enhances and compliments ones natural skin tone; and can give you different types of looks if applied correctly.

A Natural Look

Apply peach, coral and pink shades of blush to the apple of the cheeks to create a flushed and healthy glow. Of course go for the color that best suits your skin color.

Dramatic Look

To create and enhance cheekbones, apply blusher just under the cheekbones using a natural skin-tone color only.  If suitable, go a shade or two darker to really sculpt and define, keeping in mind that the darker you go the more important it is to blend the lines together.

A few tricks: If you apply and blend upwards toward the hairline, this will elongate the face.  If you blend downwards towards the jaw line, this will make the face appear thinner.  Ultimately, the shape of your face will determine what looks best in terms of application.

Playful Look

Play with the color of blush and its application as much as you like to create a truly personal look, looking like your favorite star.  However, it is important not to go overboard with colors and quantity.
