Wondering how to do your wedding makeup? Whether you want to save money, avoid the hassle of a 6-person teamor just want to be in control of your own face, we’ve got you covered. 

You need to tick a lot of boxes for your big day – sweat-proof, camera-proof and (most importantly) waterproof! You want a natural, dewy look that isn’t too plain or oily. While it might sound a bit overwhelming, it’s more than doable with our wedding makeup tutorial! 

How to Do Your Wedding Makeup

Step 1 – Start with Skincare

Take a step back and lock down the perfect skincare routine. Your wedding day makeup is dependent on the base it’s going onto. If you want a glowing look, you need a healthy, smooth and radiant canvas, so start prepping the skin well in advance.  

Our biggest skincare tipHydrate that face! We recommend applying refreshing face mask 1-2 times a week to restore moisture and give the skin a glowing finish. Our Watermelon Hydrating Face Mask is a great choice for radiant results. 

Don’t forget toner! One of our favorites is the Revolution Skincare 2.5% Glycolic Acid Toner. It’s formulated with Ginseng a brightening antioxidant, Aloe Vera to soothe and condition, and Witch Hazel to tighten pores – basically an all-in-one for the perfect wedding day skin! 

Top off your routine with a rich facial oil. Give your skin an overnight pamper with the midnight miracle worker, our Night Restore Oilto help promote natural radiance. 

Step 2 – Choose the Right Foundation

Getting your foundation right is a crucial part of your bridal makeup. It’s important to consider your skin type when choosing your base. Remember, you’re aiming for a natural look with a dewy finish for your big day. 

Finish your base with a soft contour, using a slightly darker powder to add shape and definition. Then, add a touch of natural highlighter to the high points of your cheeks. 

Step 3 – Long-Lasting Eyes

It’s almost a given that you’ll shed a few tears on your big day – it’s an emotional rollercoaster! Even if you’re not a crier, it’s always best to play it safe with a waterproof option.  

We love our Makeup Revolution 5D Lash Waterproof Mascara. Dubbed as our best mascara yet, this extreme extension mascara helps achieve instant length, lift, definition, stretch and volume in one swipe. It won’t smudge, budge, or flake – so no need to hold back the tears! 

Complete the ultimate long-lasting eye look with delicate smoky eye. We recommend using bronze, champagne, or soft brown colors. You can achieve this soft glam eye with the Revolution x Friends Ross Eyeshadow Palette. 

Step 4 – Natural Lip

On your wedding day, nothing beats a seamless nude lip. Prep your pout with our Sugar Kiss Lip Scrubthen follow with our Dream Kiss Lip Balm for a nourished, smooth base. 

Line your lips with a nude shade to create natural definition before applying your main colorTry our Satin Kiss Lipliner for super-smooth and richly pigmented lips. 

Top off with a long-wear nude lipstick that matches your liner. We recommend our Satin Kiss Lipstick in a nude, rose or pink-toned shade. 

Step 5 – Set it Down!

After working so hard on your makeup, you want it to stay put all day. Spritz a setting spray over your face to lock everything in place and prevent makeup from wearing away. 

We love the Face FiXX Moisturising Setting Spray. It creates the perfect rejuvenated and radiant finish.  

Practice Makes Perfect

Remember, you might not be a pro makeup artist, but you still want to look your best, so practice is key! Try and avoid as much wedding day stress as possible by repeatedly practicing your look. Keep trialing it until you’re happy with the finished product and feel ready for your day. Don’t stress, you’ll look gorgeous!
