Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life. Now that you’ve planned out your guest list, purchased your dress and picked out the flowers it’s time to think about your hair and makeup. You’ll find that these beauty tips are meant to get your makeup on and keep it on so that no matter how much you dance it will stay put.
True story- I was introduced to a brilliant guy named Robert who many of my friend used on their wedding day. When it was my turn to get married Robert did a trial for me which I tested by going to the gym and doing one our of kick boxing, one hour of core training and one hour of cardio. I wanted to be sure that on the night of my wedding I wouldn’t have mascara oozing down the side of my face and since Robert is the best there is, it didn’t. Today I want to share the wedding day beauty tips that I learned from my long lost friend along with a few that I learned along the way.
Wedding Day Beauty Tips
Skip The Last Minute Facial
The day before your wedding is not the day that you should be trying a new treatment on your skin. If you want to get a facial then go with a treatment that you’ve had in the past and do it with someone who has already worked on your skin. If there’s something that does interest you and it’s a new treatment that you’ve never tried before then do it a month before your wedding day. If you don’t see a bad reaction then go ahead and have it done two days before your wedding.
Get A Makeup Artist For The Day
No matter what kind of a beauty guru you are, there is a good chance that you may be somewhat nervous on your big day. A professional makeup artist will probably have a much steadier hand than you will that day and he/ she may also come armed with lots and lots of new ideas. Just o be sure that your pro is the one that you want set up a trial at least one month before your wedding date and when you find the perfect look take pictures so that you get exactly what you want on the big day.
The purpose of using primer is to keep your makeup in place. Think about it. You’re going to be dancing. People are going to be kissing and hugging you. Without primer, you’re going to have to do a full touch up within the first couple of hours.
Build Up The Foundation
If you’re an avid reader of my blog then you know that I don’t like to wear foundation. However, one of the best wedding day beauty tips that my ingenious makeup artist, Robert gave me is to most definitely apply foundation on my wedding day. The reason for this is that the flash from the camera tends to wash you out and the foundation helps to keep that from happening.
There are two things that you should keep in mind about your lipstick. First, try to look for a long lasting lipstick or stain so that you won’t have to worry about reapplying often. This brings me to my second point. In case you do decide to go for a lipstick that doesn’t last too long, be sure to ask someone that you’re close to, to hold it for you. It could be your maid of honor, mom, life partner- anyone as long as they’re someone who will be nearby for a good portian of the day.
Maybe it’s the tears that are falling as you walk down the aisle. Maybe it’s the sweat from eight hours of dancing. Maybe it’s from rubbing your eyes from shame when your cousin tells the story about how you liked to run around naked until the age of eight.Whatever the reason may be for your mascara to try to run you have to go in prepared. Using a waterproof mascara is a must as far as wedding day beauty tips go.
Skip The Conditioner
Another one of the best wedding day beauty tips that I got came from my hair stylist and he told me to not use conditioner for a month before my wedding. At first I thought that he was crazy but it was the best thing that I could have done. If you have very soft hair then your hair is more likely to get ratty- even with all of the bobby pins and hairspray. If you don’t condition your hair for a while it gets a little drier, is easier to style and stays put. By the way, I just want to mention that my stylist was phenomenal so don’t think that I got this advice from a lazy person who has no idea what he’s doing. Charles is a highly demanded and loved stylist in my area so when he tells us to jump we do it.
