I'm glad it's becoming for brides to choose the no-makeup look on their wedding days. While some brides desire to feel glam and extremely fab, more and more Pinays are choosing to go for a low-key makeup look on the day they marry their grooms.

For the future Mrs.-to-bes who are still undecided what makeup look to try, I'm here to convince you why you should go for a barely-there look. It's not about wearing less product; it's the overall effect of putting on eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick in shades close to your skin tone.

It's Royal Wedding-approved.

Okay, this is a bit of a stretch, but if Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, pulled it off during one of the major weddings of the century, then it's perfectly alright to do the same, too!

Now the biggest challenge is how to actually pull it off on the day you say "I do." Here's how:

How To Prep For Your Bridal Glow On Your Wedding Day

Take care of your skin

Not to pressure you to have perfect, porcelain skin, but keeping it healthy and nourished would help heaps. You can see a derma for a ~*glow by glow*~ lesson on how to get fewer breakouts. Alternatively, you can turn to a skincare regimen that has been working for you for a long time.

Look back at both your old and recent photos.

From here, you can tell your signature look, and what features you want to highlight on your wedding day. Do you like your brows bold or feathery? Are you into winged liners or softly smudged shadows? It's like you're aiming for your everyday ~lewk~ but better! 

Talk to your makeup artist.

Being open with your MUA and listening to his or her creative and professional input can help you ace your radiant bride look. Bring pegs on your trial makeup session and give prompt feedback if you spot anything that's not in line with what you want.
