All brides want to look lovely on their wedding day. This is a perfect opportunity to pamper yourself by hiring a professional makeup artist to come to your hotel to work their magic in bringing out your natural beauty. Whether you’ve chosen to hire a stylist or will be doing your own wedding makeup, keep in mind these tips geared for your wedding day.
Long-Wearing, “won’t kiss off” lipstick is the way to go!  Remember that you’ll have your photo taken all day and evening on your wedding day and you want to look your best without having to frequently reapply your lip color. Your groom will also be grateful if you choose a non-transferring lipstick so that he doesn’t end up wearing your shade too! Today’s lip stain products are exceptional in duration and comfort. As a girl, I’m sure you’re aware that the color on the box and the color of the product while you’re wearing it can vary greatly. Try out several shades and brands in the months leading up to your wedding until you find just the right one for you.  Your makeup artist will be happy to use a lipstick on you that you’ve supplied.  Here are a few favorite brands.

Waterproof Mascara – another must on your wedding day is waterproof mascara. Even the most stoic of brides may get a little misty-eyed as she pledges her life to her love or while her father/best friend/sister toast the newly wed couple. Even just being out in the sun and wind can lead to watering eyes and the last thing you’ll want is raccoon eyes on your wedding day!
Long-wearing Base makeup – if you have decided to do your own makeup, invest in a good base makeup that will give you natural coverage and last through the anxious moments leading up to your nuptials, the many hugs and kisses that will follow and the overall elements of Maui’s weather.  Again, try out several brands until you find the one that works best for you.  Keep in mind that you can ask for samples at cosmetic counters instead of buying full-sized products until you find your favorite.
