Engagement Day makeup and dress is a very important as it all will be captured on camera and documented in album. Engagement Makeup includes the makeup, engagement hairstyle and dress for engagement day. So, ensure that you have invested a lot of time thinking and planning about engagement makeup. Here is an engagement makeup guide that will help you to looking fabulous and ravishing on your engagement day.

Makeup Tips for Engagement Day Makeup

Engagement day is an important day and you would not ruin it by having a bad makeup or bad hairstyle. Here are few makeup tips that will come very handy and prove very beneficial to create fabulous and fresh look in front of camera on your engagement day:

  • Smooth Start: Start of by making your skin makeup ready and the best way to do it is to hydrate the skin by applying moisturizer before you start applying makeup. Applying moisturizer to the skin helps to prepare the skin for makeup by smoothening and toning it. If your skin type is oily then it is recommended apply scrub or give yourself a facial treatment. Treating the skin with moisturizer and if necessary with scrub or facial treatment proves beneficial as it minimizes uneven or chalky makeup and makes your skin glowing and healthy.
  • Makeup Base: Make sure that you create a smooth and even base for the makeup as camera tends to capture the wrinkles, patchy makeup, blemishes etc very easily. So, if you do not focus on application of base properly then camera will capture it and ruin the photograph. For creating a smooth and even base it is recommended to first apply primer to the face as it helps the makeup to stay longer. Then apply concealer to the darker areas of the face like blemishes or dark circles to cover them. Use of foundation which is almost matching to your natural skin tone is recommended. Apply foundation in dots and use brush or sponge in upward strokes to blend it in the skin evenly. Do not forget to blend the foundation at the edges of the face.
  • Blush: Apply blush on the apple of your cheeks to accentuate your smile. While applying blush brush off excess blush powder present on the brush and then apply gently on the cheekbones and on the outer corner of the eyes to the temples. Thus, by using proper application techniques for blush and bronzer you can get a slightly natural sculpted look for example for making the look of the nose thinner apply bronzer on the sides of the nose and blend it. Similarly, for getting a sculpted jaw line apply blush under the cheekbone as it helps to define the cheeks more effectively.
  • Eye Makeup: Eye makeup is very important part while doing engagement makeup. Make sure that you accentuate eyes very effectively as it makes eyes look bigger and vibrant in the photographs. Choose an eye shadow which suits your skin tone and the color of the dress. To make the eyes more lustrous use kohl or kajal as it helps to get a more defined look to the eyes. Apply eye liner to give a very artistic look to eyes. Also applying eye liner is a very effective way to accentuate eyes. If you love smoky eye makeup here is a simple trick: apply smoky colored eyeliner pencil on the eyelids and smudging it a bit to get a desirable look of smoky eyes makeup. A new trend in eye makeup is applying colored kajal for making the eyes more vibrant and getting an intense piercing look.
  • Lip Makeup: Lip Makeup adds on to the completeness of the engagement makeup. For doing lip makeup start by applying lip pencil and define the lips then smudge the lip pencil color inwards on the lips. Afterwards apply lipstick and finish the lip makeup by applying gloss. Applying gloss is optional because many like have matt finish look to the lips. Kindly remember to apply lipstick using brush as this will ensure that the lipstick is applied evenly, and it will last longer as well. For getting a pouty look for the lips apply a lighter shade of lipstick or gloss only on the center of the lips.
  • Powder: Dab a little of translucent powder on the face especially on forehead and nose. Powder is useful to set the makeup on face. It is recommended to opt for a nude shade powder for application as it will reflect the true makeup and not influence it.
  • Eyebrows: Eyebrows accentuate the look of the face so make sure that your eyebrows are properly shaped. Shape of the eyebrows depends on the shape of the face so get the eyebrows well shaped from parlor or makeup artist.
  • Hairstyle: Engagement Hairstyle is very important so choose a hairstyle wisely. For choosing best hairstyle you must consider things like: hairstyle that will suit the attire, hairstyle that will suit the shape of the face and hairstyle suitable to the occasion or tradition for example you can opt for modern bun or curls as engagement hairstyle and a traditional ‘juda’ for pheras in marriage. Thus, a proper hairdo completes a good engagement makeup as hairstyle is an extension of makeup.

Thus, above were some of the most important camera-friendly makeup tips for you to consider while applying engagement makeup and help you in understanding how proper makeup application helps in getting a proper makeup that will enhance your looks in photographs rather than ruining them.
