A Riviera Maya wedding on the beach comes with salty ocean breezes and glorious, bright sunshine.
Unless you are lucky enough to call Playa del Carmen home (like WE do!) your daily makeup routine will not cut it in the Tropics!
Knowing that you will want to look your prettiest in your destination wedding photos, we have compiled a few simple beach bride makeup tips to get you looking your very best!
If you are planning to get married on the beach, the natural beauty where you will do your ‘I Do’s’ should be reflected in your wedding day makeup routine too. You should look like yourself, only kicked up a few notches. This is not the scene for overdone war paint!
We agree with Glamour to nix the heavy, caked on foundation. Lighten up your makeup!
You are bound to get a bit hot and sweaty, and heavy layers will just end in makeup disaster.
Choose a lightweight concealer, foundation, and powder, and then most importantly, make sure that they all match! The bright Mexican sun acts as a magnifying glass for imperfections like makeup lines in your wedding photos.
Tip: Practice your wedding makeup with a trial run before the big day to ensure that any lines are invisible to the naked eye.
I know you are looking for the blushing bride look, but when it comes to tropical beach wedding colors, ditch the pink blush and opt instead for coral. This will give you the natural look you crave.

No Goopy Gloss!
The warm ocean breezes of the Riviera Maya are wonderfully romantic, but consider how a windy day makes glossed lips a magnet for loose strands of hair and debris…
The salt and sand at your beach wedding can make for sticky problems!
Also, the blazing Mexican sunshine on your shiny lips will create a glare in your wedding photographs. Keep those beach bride lips soft, kissable and gloss-free!
There Will Be Tears!
Even if you are not the crying type, weddings have a way of bringing out emotion in all of us…especially when it’s your wedding! Be sure to slap on a top coat of waterproof mascara, because this is not the day for raccoon eyes!
And finally, remember that the beaches in Mexico will burn you to a crisp if you are not careful! Slap on a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect that pretty, glowing face from harmful rays.
