Wedding Day Makeup Tips from Glam Artistry: The Do’s & Don’ts for Your Big Day

Glam Artistry Bridal Makeup Edmonton

Makeup is one of the key items to check off your wedding “to-do” list, but how do you pick the right look?

We asked the ladies from Glam Artistry to share some of their favourite wedding day do’s and don’ts with us.

 Here’s what they had to say: 


…get a makeup trial done to ensure the products your artist uses are appropriate for your skin, and, most importantly, to ensure you LOVE the way you look on your wedding day! Bring reference pictures to your trial appointment to help your makeup artist achieve the right look for you.

…have “bridal touch-up musts” with you. To ensure you continue to look flawless from your ceremony to your first dance, make sure to have the following touch ups handy: (1) blotting sheets or powder, (2) makeup setting spray to add glow (we recommend MAC’s fix +), and (3) your favourite lip pencil and colour.

…emphasize your eyes! Exclusive to Glam Artistry are G Class Mink Lashes — the perfect combination of both length and volume to add extra focus to your eyes.

…look for long-wearing formulas. If you’ve hired a professional, ensure they’re using quality, long-wearing products on you.


…go too trendy. Remember, you want to look back and love your photos for years to come. Opt for finding a balance between trendy and classic beauty looks like glowy skin, soft brows, and sultry eyes.

…just apply makeup to your face. Apply makeup on your ears, down your neck, chest, and shoulders if needed. Ensure you’re using a waterproof and sweatproof formula! This will leave you looking flawless and natural from all angles, and in all lighting.

…have any waxing or facial treatments done a week before your wedding. You want to avoid any pain or irritation before your wedding day, especially if it’s not a regular service for you.

…forget to hydrate! A good makeup application starts with a solid foundation — your skin. Get a moisturizer packed with natural emollients and antioxidants to ensure your skin is glowing. We recommend PURA’s Overnight Watermelon Masque: a decadent treatment packed with all-natural silk peptides and watermelon extract.
