5 Beauty Tips For the Big Day

Your wedding day is one of the happiest and most stressful days of your life. You want to look perfect for your groom and guests but there is so much to do! Relax and follow the 5 tips below and you are well on your way to looking as radiant on the outside as you will feel on the inside.

Do Not Wash Your Hair

The morning of the big day, skip the shampoo. It will allow your hair to stay in place better and look shinier in your wedding photos. Wash your hair the night before, then let your natural oils work their magic the next day.

Exfoliate Your Lips

Before applying your bridal lip color, exfoliate either with a gentle lip scrub or using an old toothbrush. This will slough off old, dead skin and allow soft, new skin to shine through. This helps lip color last longer!

Wear Sunscreen Under Makeup

If you are having an outdoor ceremony or photo shoot, the wedding season sun can be brutal! Remember to apply a layer of sunscreen under your makeup to avoid burning. Sunburns are not only bad for your skin, they can also really mess up your makeup look as the night goes on. If nothing else, at least use products that contain SPF for some protection.

Make An Emergency Bag

Create a kit for your wedding day that will help in any number of beauty emergencies. Every gal is different and will want different things in her kit but here are some good items to start with: bobby pins, lip balm (a must: purchase from Amazon), hairspray, fashion tape, nail file, blotting papers, and tweezers. If you do not have time to make your own, many companies sell pre-made wedding emergency kits you can buy.

Wear False Lashes

Not naturally blessed with long, luxurious lashes? Try some falsies! They really make your eyes pop both in photos and during your ceremony. If the whole set is too strong a look for you, apply just half a row to the outer corners of your eyes for a softer appearance.
