The Complete Guide to Picking the Perfect Makeup for your Engagement Photos

The Complete Guide to Picking the Perfect Makeup for your Engagement Photos

Your engagement photos are a treasured memory that will be with you for a lifetime. So it only makes sense that you’ll want to look your best. You’ve already got your outfit, you’ve certainly already got a stunning engagement ring, so now it’s time to focus on your engagement photo makeup.


What kind of makeup should you wear for your engagement photos?


The Style


The style of your engagement photo makeup will determine several things. You’ll want to consider the venue and the feel of your photos when selecting your engagement photo makeup. Are you going for something more casual such as a romantic walk on the beach? Or will it be more formal? Choose your makeup and your clothing based on the feel of the shoot.


Be Yourself


Your engagement photos are the perfect time to show some personality. You might not want them to be prototypes for your wedding photos. Instead, take this opportunity to do something different. Incorporate your hobbies, favourite activities, and places that are special to you as a couple. Wear makeup that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful in these situations, scenarios and settings.


Professional Makeup?


It’s really your choice if you want to get your engagement photo makeup done professionally or if you want to do it yourself. Plenty of women do both and there’s really no “right answer.” If you’re confident at doing makeup yourself then, by all means, go for it!


Use This Opportunity as a Test


While your engagement shoot will certainly be different from your wedding, it’s often a good idea to try out the type of makeup that you’re planning on wearing at your wedding. That way, you can see how it looks in photos and also get a feel for how comfortable and durable it is. In addition to looking great, you’ll need to know if it holds up over a photoshoot. At least try out the same brands and products in a different style if you’re going for a different look than your wedding makeup.


Pay Attention to Specifics

Engagement Photo Makeup

Now that we’ve covered some overall tips for engagement photo makeup, here are a few specifics that you’ll want to keep in mind:


  • Use a Primer
    • A primer evens out your skin tone and keeps your engagement photo makeup from sliding off your face. For example, try INGLOT Under Makeup Base. It absorbs excess oil from your skin and prolongs the life of your foundation, making you look great for even longer.
  • Choose a foundation with full coverage
    • A foundation with full coverage will cover everything, making you look absolutely stunning on camera. INGLOT HD Perfect Coverup Foundation provides long lasting coverage and ensures a natural, flawless finish. Not only is it ideal for everyday use, but it contains HD pigments that make it perfect for high resolution photos and videos.
  • Make sure your concealer matches your skin tone
    • You’ll probably be taking quite a few close-ups of your face, so you’ll want a concealer that blends perfectly and matches your skin tone. The INGLOT Freedom System Cream Concealer allows you to mix and match colours to create palette that’s just for you.
