A bride is always the center of attention on her wedding day, and because of this, she wants to look her best. One way to achieve a look that really makes you feel fantastic when garnishing all that attention is to find the perfect makeup regime before the big day and use that regime when your special day arrives. Follow along as we discuss some expert beauty advice that every bride to be needs to know prior to her wedding day.
The first step to getting a great makeup look on your wedding day is to practice and experiment before the big day comes. Visit a professional makeup artist and explain the look you think you would like to go with. Ask her to experiment with some different products and different colors to help you achieve that look. Make sure that she not only applies the makeup, but teaches you how to achieve that look as well. Once you have found the look you want, make sure to write down step by step instructions, or better yet, hire her to help you on the big day!
In addition to finding your makeup early, you need to establish your skin routine early. If you do not already have a skin routine that works for you, make sure to find one at least three months prior to your wedding day. This will give you some time to make sure the products really work and to address any detoxifying effects, such as small blemishes that might appear. Make sure your routine includes a high quality cleanser and moisturizer, as well as a facial mask to use a day or two before your wedding day arrives. Use the products religiously, and make any modifications you might need before your special day arrives.
Remember that sunscreen is your friend. You should always be using sunscreen, but if you are not doing so, make sure to start a few months before your wedding day. Apply at least an SPF 15 to your face on a daily basis to avoid age spots, sun damage and wrinkles that might appear. Also make sure to use a high quality SPF of 50 if you will be out in the sun for a prolonged period of time to avoid burns. By doing this you can keep your skin looking youthful and healthy, which is especially important when you will be in front of the camera on your wedding day.
Finally, have an emergency plan in place. Even if you take great care of your skin, it is still possible for a blemish or unsightly wrinkle to show up the day of your wedding. Be prepared with a good concealer and a great makeup artist to help you apply it. Also consider using a blemish reducer the night before if you a red spot becomes very large and unsightly. By having a plan, you will be able to get past a blemish on your face and still look great for your family, friends and the photographer.
Every bride is glowing on her big day, but a look is enhanced when some makeup and beauty tips are considered in advance. Take the time to get your makeup routine right, and you are sure to feel vibrant and beautiful when you walk down the aisle.
