Be aware of common bridal mistakes so that you don’t make them on your wedding day

Your bridal look is so important for you! After all, this is such a unique moment in your life that it is completely normal to want to look flawlessly gorgeous. How do you achieve that, though? What are some bridal beauty mistakes other ladies have done – and you should avoid?

We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Take your time. Really take your time. If you want to do your makeup on your own, double the time you think you will need to get yourself done to walk down the aisle. Believe us, you will be so nervous even applying the blush will feel like a really hard task.
  • Speaking of, learn how to put on falsies if you want them on your wedding day. In truth, false eyelashes can be a complete game-changer for your makeup – but do make sure you know how to apply them with precision, without spending too much time, and without ruining your entire eye makeup either.
  • Furthermore, try to avoid very dark eye makeup. Smoky eyes look spectacular and glamorous in real-life, but this type of makeup can frequently look really bad in the pictures. Better stick with something softer and more neutral for your Big Day.
  • Last, but definitely not least, avoid red lipstick. It can definitely add a dash of elegance and sophistication – but can very easily smear and lead to a disastrous look. If you really have to wear red lips, be sure to choose an extra-resistant lipstick or lip stain (and test it before the Big Day).
