Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. The wedding gown is the focal point, but don’t forget about the hair and makeup! Below is some beauty tips that you may not have considered. Enjoy!
Stay true to the real you:
It is easy to get carried away with lots of makeup and extreme hairstyles, but the truth is, you want to look like you, just a little bumped up. If you are not the type to wear tons of women’s makeup, don’t do it on your wedding day. Wear what you feel comfortable wearing.
Dirty hair can be a good thing:
Sounds strange, but if you are wearing an updo, freshly washed hair is much harder to manage than say washing and styling it the night before. It tends to stay up more securely.
Always do a trial run:
Whether you have hired a professional or not, it is important to do a trial run on your hair and makeup at least once before the wedding. If you are doing it yourself, you want to make sure you practice the hairstyle. And if you hired someone to do it for you, they will have great advice on which styles to choose!
Don’t go overboard with the blush:
Many brides are under the impression that they have to pile on blush in order for it to show up in photos. Fact is, you are likely to be flushed as it is, so less blush is better, as you don’t want to appear too red or dark.
Go for waterproof mascara:
Chances are, you are going to cry on the big day—even if you say you won’t. So, it is better to be safe than sorry and wear a waterproof mascara. You don’t want to stream black and have to constantly touch up your eyes.
Don’t rush to remove your veil:
If you decide to wear a veil on your wedding day, wear it for the entire day or most of it if you can. Remember, even at the reception photos are still being taken. A veil is that one element that transforms you from a woman in a white dress into a bride. Bird cage veils are a smart choice as they are easier to deal with and don’t feel in the way.
Don’t forget your nails!
A professional manicure and pedicure the day before the wedding is an inexpensive way to help you feel beautiful. Don’t take it for granted. Book an appointment!
