Myths & Misconceptions - Weddings, Makeup and Wedding Makeup

Weddings, makeup, and wedding makeup

These three subjects seem to be surrounded by myths and misconceptions, which can often leave brides feeling confused and overwhelmed. So let's set the record straight and debunk some of the biggest myths about these three topics!

Myth #1: Weddings Have to be Expensive

This is one of the most common myths about weddings. The truth is, you don't have to spend a fortune to have the wedding of your dreams. In fact, with the right budgeting, planning, and creative thinking, you can have a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank. Look for ways to cut costs or go DIY, and don't forget to ask family and friends if they can help out!

Myth #2: You Need a Professional Makeup Artist

Yes, a professional makeup artist can create a beautiful look for your wedding day. But, if you're on a budget and don't want to hire a professional, you can still achieve a stunning look with makeup products from the drugstore. With the right products and some practice, you can create a flawless look for your special day.

Myth #3: Wedding Makeup Has to be Heavy

Many brides think that wedding makeup must be heavy and cakey in order to look good in photos. In reality, this isn't the case. You can create a natural, glowing look with lighter coverage, and still look beautiful in your photos. Just remember to set your makeup with a setting powder so it will last all day.

Myth #4: You Need to Match Your Wedding Makeup to Your Dress

This is another common myth, but it's simply not true. You don't have to match your makeup to your dress, and in fact, it can be more flattering to choose a makeup look that complements your dress rather than trying to match it exactly.

Myth #5: You Should Only Wear Neutral Colors on Your Wedding Day

While neutral colors are popular for wedding makeup, you don't have to stick to them. In fact, if you want to make a statement, a pop of color can be a fun way to go. Just make sure you choose colors that work with your skin tone and match the overall look you're going for.

We hope this article has cleared up some of the biggest myths about weddings, makeup, and wedding makeup. Remember, there's no one-size-rule for weddings.
