The Perfect Day of Beauty

The beauty goal for every bride is to look beautiful, but more important is to appear relaxed and natural. Don’t go for a dramatic change in your look. You want to look like yourself, but at your best. Plus, with all that hugging and kissing, the more makeup you put on, the more will rub off.

Prepare Ahead

Since you won’t be able to cry about it on the day of your wedding, plan now so there won’t be any surprises.

Find a salon far enough in advance to take some trial runs. Road test both hair and make-up with all the accessories, including the veil. Not only do you want to ensure that you have the right lipstick color, but you want to make sure that you don’t have any allergic reactions to a new brand of makeup or hairspray.

Hold a swatch up to your face in the light in which you’ll be seen.

Purchase your won cosmetics if you’re having your makeup done professionally. You’ll want to have them on hand for touch ups, especially your lipstick.

Make the appointment on the big day with enough “down” time. You need to consider that something could go wrong that will need to be fixed, or things could just take a little longer. You don’t want to spend five hours at a salon, and have to race to the church.

Even if you don’t normally wear any makeup, the minimum you’ll need is mascara, blush, and lipstick. White has a tendency to wash out the face.

Whether you wear your hair up or down, be sure it doesn’t hide your face. You don’t want it in the way during photos, kissing, and eating.

Use as much waterproof makeup as possible. It’s least likely to melt off during those long hours.
