It’s humid. The temperature is like a furnace inside your bridal gown. Then, the perspiration comes—even though you don’t want it to. Little by little, you feel the beads of foundation trickling down your face. The perspiration drops accelerate and roll into your eyes. You try to wink them away but all you get is a train track of black mascara, eyeliner and blush, all down your face.
Phew…then you wake up. It was only a wedding nightmare after all.
It may seem like a bad dream but the reality is that sometimes even the best makeup doesn’t stand a chance against our tropical climate’s humidity, wind, rain and heat. This is particularly true if you’re having an outdoor or beach wedding. Add bouts of emotion and tears to the humidity factor and you have a recipe for a streaky face and raccoon eyes.
One solution to keep that “blushing bride look,” is to use water-proof makeup. Women are sensitive and the feel of starting a new life with a man who has his own family might bring in a feel of anxiety and adding to this will be her thought about leaving her mom dad and other relations. So, the bride often gets emotional and she tends to shed tears automatically.
