Deciding what kind of makeup you want for your wedding is a time-taking process. Of course, you want it to be perfect and there are no two ways about it. It is still easier to choose the colours that you want for your eye look and your lips. The real battle is selecting the finish for your base makeup. It has to be just right.

So, let's help you decide by discussing and evaluating the two base makeup finishes - matte and dewy. 

What To Wear When: Dewy Makeup vs Matte Makeup

When To Wear Dewy Makeup

Dewy makeup is simply beautiful. It gives your skin a radiant finish and instantly adds a glow. Dewy makeup also feels quite comfortable on the skin since it is quite light in terms of layers. Go for dewy makeup if the kind of makeup that you want to wear on your wedding day is luminous!

1. If You Have Dry Skin

Dewy makeup is your best friend if you have dry skin. Dry-skinned beauties often struggle with prominent dry patches and fine lines. Dewy makeup doesn't emphasize dry patches and fine lines. It adds a nice sheen to the skin which makes it look hydrated. Dewy makeup products are often loaded with skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid which add hydration to your skin, giving your skin a glowy and youthful appearance.

2. If You Want To Go For A Natural Minimal Look

If your bridal look is minimal or if you want to keep your makeup simple on your wedding day, dewy makeup is the way to go. Dewy makeup looks quite natural when done right. Even no makeup looks are based on fresh, dewy complexion products. So, pair your minimal bridal look with fresh-faced dewy makeup and watch your skin have that glow-from-within look. It also photographs really well.

When To Wear Matte Makeup

Matte makeup is just stunning. It gives your skin a fresh and oil-free look. It is all about looking put together and effortlessly glamorous. It hides the imperfections on your skin pretty well and lasts quite a long. Go for matte makeup if the kind of makeup that you want to wear on your wedding day is flawless. 

1. If You Have Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you should go for matte makeup. Your skin already produces a lot of oils which can give your face a greasy look. Matte makeup helps you control shine and gives you an even finish all over your face. It also helps in blurring pores which are often quite visible on oily-skinned beauties. So, if you want a velvety finish, go for matte makeup. It also gives your skin an air-brushed look and feels.

2. If You Want To Go For A Full Coverage Glam

Matte makeup is perfect for those who want to go for full coverage of glam on their wedding day. Matte makeup gives the most amount of coverage and is often used in glam looks. It is great when it comes to hiding pigmentation on the face. Plus, it lasts a really long time which is just perfect for your wedding day since you are going to be wearing your makeup for several hours. It is also quite easy to touch up your matte makeup with the help of some powder.
