It is quite unlikely that you will ever draw as much attention to yourself as you will on your wedding day. You know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all eyes will be trained on you as you walk down the aisle. So, no doubt, you want your look to be flawless in every way. But you also know that beauty doesn’t come automatically. For true beauty to appear effortless, you need to work at it. Here are a few beauty tips that are sure to make your look stunning on your wedding day.
1. Start With Your Skin
No matter how good the make-up, it will look even better if it is on soft and healthy skin. Start taking care of your skin early by washing your face daily and using skin care masks & peels. Make an appointment with a beauty salon and get the full work-up. Then consult with a specialist so that you know how to maintain it.
2. Schedule A Make-Up Trial
Book an appointment with a make-up artist so you can try out different looks. It helps to bring along some pictures of looks you like so that she knows your preferences. Don’t be afraid to tell her what you think. If she’s a professional, she’ll take your thoughts and create a fantastic look.
You will smile more on your wedding day than at any other time, so get in a lot of practice. If you don’t already have pearly white teeth, start getting whitening treatments a few months before so your smile will literally glow as you walk down the aisle. If you’d like to straighten your teeth, clear aligners (like Smile Direct Club and Byte) are a very safe and affordable route to go.
4. Use Powder
Keep an eye on your T-zone. Even after make-up, this area can become very shiny, which can detract from your look. Keep a little powder close buy for light touch-ups between photos, dances, and all the other activities you will be enjoying.
5. Order Your Dress Early
He may rent a wedding tux, but your wedding dress will be what everyone is looking at. The earlier you can order your dress, the less likely you will have delays. You want to schedule fittings as often as needed so that when you slip into it, you will only feel perfection.
6. Choose A Professional Hairstylist
It might be tempting to choose a hairstylist that has worked with you before, but it is better to choose someone who has experience in creating glamour looks for weddings. Your regular hairdresser may not have enough knowledge in bridal hairstyling to give you the kind of look you want.
7. Get A Manicure
Your hands will be drawing a lot of attention, so make sure that you get a professional manicure just before the big day. If you get it too early, your polish may chip, too late, and you may run out of time.
8. Start A Healthy Diet
Every bride wants to look good on their wedding day, but you should also do everything you can to feel good too. This means eating a proper, healthy diet. So cut the sugar and the junk food a few months before the wedding so you can eliminate those toxins early. That way, you’ll have beautiful glowing skin on your big day.
9. Get Plenty Of Rest
The closer you get to your special day, the more rest you should be getting. No matter how much fun you’re having or how excited you get, it is better to put the celebration off until after your big day and concentrate on getting plenty of rest.
10. Eat Light
Make it a habit to eat light meals. Eating dense foods leading up to the wedding may make it difficult to get in the dress and make you feel sluggish and tired at a time when you need more energy.
Your wedding is the one day in your life you’ve looked forward to the most. It pays to make these small sacrifices so that you can look your absolute best.
