Posted on by destinbayweddings

Ah, summer in Florida—the skies are blue, the water is clear, the brides are beaming…and sweating. Right now, July temps at the Destin Bay House are reaching upward of 90 degrees. In this heat, let’s face it: you want to avoid a make-up meltdown.  Use our summer makeup tips to save face at your summer wedding.

Summer makeup tips

Step One: Exfoliate

Create a smooth canvas by exfoliating the morning of your big day. Don’t over-exfoliate; by that we mean, don’t try any new techniques or equipment, you don’t want an unexpected reaction. But continue your normal exfoliation routine—whether scrub, brush, or dermaplane—before doing your makeup.

Step Two: To Moisturize Or Not To Moisturize?

If your skin is prone to dryness, use a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to prep your face. If you have oily skin, skip the moisturizer altogether. Instead, try an oil-free primer. These are specifically formulated to create a flawless canvas without the shine.

Step Three:  Cover or Conceal?

Again, if you can skip the foundation, do. Instead, use spot concealer as needed. If you beauty regimen stands firmly on foundation, choose an oil free foundation  or tinted moisturizer and apply with a foundation brush (not your fingers) to help it last longer and avoid oil build-up.

Step 4: Dot Your Eyes

Dot concealer on your eyelids, from the brow all the way to the lash line before you apply shadow. This helps your shadow last from the first look photos until the last dance. Of course, waterproof mascara is a must.

Step 5:  Touch-Up For Your Close-Up

Have a touch-up kit handy for last-minute fixes before photos.  Include concealer, powder, a synthetic brush, lipstick, and blotting papers. A nice summery spritz that boosts your mood is always a good idea too.

With these five tools in your beauty bag, you’re ready for some wow-worthy photos and getting cheek-to-cheek with your newly betrothed.
