Bridal Mistakes to Avoid for a Flawless Wedding Makeup Look

Preparing for your wedding day? Once everything is arranged to run smoothly, your focus will shift to your look. You might have already taken steps to ensure your skin and hair are in optimal condition. While hairstyling can be a challenging task that requires assistance, you can however take the charge of your makeup. As a bride-to-be, it’s likely that you already have several bridal looks in mind and a mood board must be ready to send to your makeup artist. However, bridal makeup mistakes can easily cause problems and spoil your entire look, even with a skilled MUA. So, while you’re searching Pinterest and Instagram for the perfect bridal makeup, pay close attention to details like product choices and waterproof options to avoid errors. To help you achieve your dream bridal look, here are a few mistakes you must avoid:

Skipping A Makeup Trial: You won’t have much time on your wedding day for a makeup redo, so it’s essential to have a makeup trial a few months before the big day. This trial will help your makeup artist find the best makeup look for your skin type and outfit. Make sure you provide your artist with details about your skin tone, skin type, and product allergies to avoid any mishaps and achieve a beautiful look.

Applying a Cakey Base


To achieve a natural, glowing look, your makeup should be lightweight and enhance your natural features. Avoid using too much foundation, concealer, compact powder, or blush, and follow the ‘less is more’ rule. Use only the necessary amount of makeup products on your skin and avoid using high-definition powder, as it can leave a white cast and ruin your photos. For a perfect base keep your skin hydrated by following the regular CTM and ensure to use a hydrating face primer.

Choosing The Wrong Foundation


Foundation is crucial for your base makeup, so it’s essential to choose the right one for your skin tone and type . Your foundation should be the same color or a shade lighter than your skin tone, and you must consider your undertones – pinkish, yellowish, or neutral. Choose a foundation that suits your skin type and weather conditions. If you have an oily skin type then the foundation stick of SÉRY should be your ideal pick because it is enriched with Vitamin E and Kaolin Clay which helps in retaining moisture and keeping the skin hydrated. The SPF-15 is the brownie point, it will protect your skin from harmful rays by casting a shield.  If you have a dry skin type then opt for a liquid foundation for the hydrated base. Use SÉRY Satin Flawless Longwear Foundation is infused with Hyaluronic Acid which is an expert at keeping the skin hydrated and soft.

Going Overboard With Your Eyes

Going-Overboard-With- Your-Eyes

Avoid doing multicolored eye shadow or using black color on your eyebrows. Opt for metallic or earthy tones, such as gold, brown, rose gold, or bronze, for a versatile look that suits all outfits and occasions. Use SÉRY Aurora Eye Shadow – Gold Show. This 9-in-1 eye shadow palette has all the shades of matte and shimmer that you need for your big day. Always prep your eyelids with a primer for long-lasting makeup and choose an eye mascara and Kajal to withstand any potential waterworks during the wedding rituals.

Choosing the Wrong Lipstick

Always be careful while choosing the type and shade of lipstick. As you know, lipstick can make or break the whole makeup, that’s why ensure to apply the one which suits the makeup, and outfit, and brightens up your face. Since you are going to wear lipstick for a long time, always go for the one which is made with long-lasting formula and most importantly is infused with a lip-loving ingredient that keeps the lip nourished and hydrated throughout. SÉRY Stay On Liquid Matte Lip Color is the best pick for your D-Day, because it is enriched with Vitamin E, and curated with a long-lasting and lightweight formula to keep the lips at comfort. This matte lipstick is also transfer-proof, mask-proof, and smudge-proof, which means, your lipstick will remain intact until you remove it with a face makeup remover.

Waxing Facial Hair too close to D-Day


To avoid potential skin dryness, sensitivity, and inflammation that may worsen with reactions, it is recommended to complete your skin treatments at least five days prior to your event to allow your skin to recover and look its best.

Experimenting With New Looks Or Styles: It’s not the best idea to test out new makeup trends or styles on your wedding day. Instead, stick with a look that enhances your natural features and makes you feel comfortable in your skin. Discuss your desired bridal look with your makeup artist beforehand, and avoid any chemical or extensive beauty treatments just before the wedding day.

By avoiding these common bridal makeup mistakes, you can communicate with your artist and achieve the perfect bridal makeup look to dazzle on your big day!
