Whether you’re getting married this summer, you’re a bridesmaid or you’ve got weddings to attend, take note of these 5 summer wedding makeup tips so you can look flawless even in the heat!

Lash Extensions for a Smudge-Free Night!

When you’re dressed to the nines and dancing the night away, there’s nothing worse than realizing mid-dance that your mascara is smudged and running under your eyes. But how do you keep this mishap from occurring? Two words: lash extensions! There are so many reasons to say “I do” to lash extensions. 😉 At The Lash Lounge, your stylist will take you through the consultation process and design a lash look that will have your appearance on point all night! From natural to bold lash extension looks, we’ve got you covered!

It Starts with The Base—Moisturize!

One of the most important makeup tips for a summer wedding is to make sure you are moisturizing prior to applying any makeup.

Applying moisturizer (preferably one with SPF, hello UV rays! ☀️) will ensure that your makeup has a hydrated base. Without this, your makeup can quickly begin to crack and produce oil in areas like your chin and nose. Our rec? A moisturizer that contains SPF 30 and hyaluronic acid, which keeps your skin healthy and makeup glowing! 🤩

Important note: If you have lash extensions be sure to keep moisturizer AWAY from your lash line as it can break down the adhesive.

Your New Favorite Duo—Eyebrow Threading + Tinting

Sometimes summer wedding makeup can look heavy after multiple products are applied to create a full-face look. This goes for your brows, too! Instead of penciling in your eyebrows on the big day, book an appointment for eyebrow threading followed by a brow tint at The Lash Lounge! This dynamic duo will not only give you a precise brow and natural-looking hue, but you won’t need to purchase and test any more brow makeup producst! 🙌🏾

Pick a Primer for Your Skin Type

If you really want your makeup to last from the ceremony to the reception, a primer will be your BFF. After you apply your moisturizer is when you’ll apply a primer. This will ensure that your makeup stays put!  What’s the best thing about primers?

You can choose one that caters to your skin’s individual needs: ⤵️

  • Oily skin? Try an oil-free primer with more of a matte finish.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles? Try a primer that will blur imperfections with light-infusing pigments.
  • Dull and uneven skin? Try a lightweight primer that offers hydration.

 Game Changer: Travel Sized Cosmetics

Heading to a destination wedding? Consider travel sized cosmetics! Smaller makeup products are perfect for throwing in a clutch so you can touch up your look throughout the festivities. (Carrying around a large purse during a wedding isn’t ideal!) Not only will a chic clutch add to your stylish attire, but you’ll be all set knowing you can touch up your makeup whenever your heart desires!
