It seems that most of the work is done and now it is time to put the finishing touches together to make sure you look and feel your best on the most important day of your life so far.

Essentially you have three main options when it comes to choosing your wedding makeup. Do you want to go with traditional makeup, mineral makeup, or airbrush makeup?

Here is some information on each type of wedding makeup to help you make a final decision and ensure you look as beautiful as you feel when you are getting married.

Airbrush Wedding Makeup

Airbrush makeup is considered to the most lightweight type of makeup and is applied with an air gun. It appeals to brides due to the even and thin layer of makeup that it offers and provides that finishing look that is the perfect accent to your elegant white wedding dress.

This type of wedding makeup has become increasingly popular over the past few years as the airbrushed look brings with it the flawless look that we are all used to seeing on models in magazines and on the runway. This type is often confused with the airbrushing technique that is used in magazines, but does give off that same excellent look in the end. The makeup stays on well through the night and the way it is applied ensures that it does not rub off against your groom’s tuxedo during the long awaited first kiss or first dance. However it does run the risk of being streaky if it gets wet thanks to sweat or tears.

Mineral Wedding Makeup

This type of wedding makeup is created thanks to the combination of several different types of minerals that are oxidized and then crushed into powders. It is used just like everyday makeup and is applied with a brush. Sometimes you can opt to apply it with a brush if you want a thicker look. There are many different options when it comes to mineral wedding makeup as you can use foundation, primers, all kinds of products to get just the look that you are after.

It is another style of makeup that has grown in popularity over the years but is not the best choice for a bride with sensitive skin or acne.

Traditional Wedding Makeup

This type of makeup usually consists of pressed powders, creams, and liquids that are applied with fingers or a sponge. This makeup comes with the most variety and can give you a unique or classic look depending on what you are after.

If you are on a tight budget then this can be the best wedding makeup to choose as you probably already have some on hand and know how to apply it perfectly for that smooth finish you want.
All types of wedding makeup come with their own pros and cons so make sure that you decide on the type that suits your style the best and that you will be most comfortable wearing for the entire day. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable during the happiest moments of your life.
