Choosing the right bridal party makeup can be a daunting task, especially since each member of your bridal party will have different skin tones, preferences, and comfort levels! At Updos For I Dos, we tend to advocate to leave the makeup selections up to each individual party member, with your approval of course, as everyone's skin and eye shapes are unique in their own way.

Additionally, comfort levels with makeup applications will vary amongst your bridal party; some individuals may be fully confident and comfortable in a fully glam makeup look, whereas other members may not be quite as comfortable with a heavier makeup application. Our team of skilled makeup artists will work closely with you and your bridal party to create a customized makeup look that accentuates each individual's natural beauty!

When researching makeup looks, we recommend using keywords that reflect an individual's features - such as "oval face, blue eyes" - to get the most realistic results. PS - we highly recommend sharing this tip with anyone receiving hair and/or makeup services, so they can be prepared with inspiration photos!

To ensure a smooth and stress-free bridal party makeup experience, we suggest that brides take the time to discuss and confirm the makeup looks for each member of the party in advance! This will enable everyone to feel confident and beautiful on the big day without any last-minute surprises or discrepancies. It's essential to research and plan the makeup looks to highlight each individual's preferences and styles, ensuring everyone feels comfortable and happy with the end results!
