The first thing which a bride has to do is making sure that her skin is prepared for the makeup. This means that the bride should moisturize the skin before applying any type of foundation. Then, she should apply a prime so the skin is even and then a cream foundation.
Black brides who desire the natural day look should use a dark brown and tan along with off-white combination. Tan shade should be applied on the eyelid and dark brown shade in the crease with off-white applied just under the brow. For having more impact, you can use brighter colors.
Brides should have a neutral look. Lip colors such as sheer pink or some brown shades with flecks could be used. Bright red may look striking, but it can stain everything. Brides can also wear lip stains, which do last longer as compared to lipsticks.
