Choosing the ideal makeup look for a religious event

choosing+the+ideal+makeup+look+for+a+religious+event_3356_800710185_0_0_7018575_300Spring's the time of year when many Christian religious ceremonies like communions and confirmations are held. If you've been invited to one of these events, your makeup ensemble will have to be a bit more toned down than usual. Thankfully, using a touch of tube mascara and a subtle eyeshadow shade should be perfect for the occasion.

If you're sticking to a neutral ensemble, opt for a subtle pop of color in your eye makeup or lip color. Avoid anything brash and bold and instead use a subtle color like mauve or light purple on your eyes prepped with eyeshadow primer. A dynamic red lip color may also look out of place at a religious ceremony, so stick with pale pinks and tangerine hues instead.

Above all, you're going to want to use minimal makeup coverage to allow your skin to look fresh and natural. Skip the heavy foundation and blush and instead use small bits of concealer to hide any imperfections.

Planning ahead and researching the dress code at the particular event will help you make a determination to create an appropriate look for the occasion.
