Beauty Secrets and Wedding Makeup Tips

Beauty Secrets and Wedding Makeup

The bride and her party deserve some beauty secrets and wedding makeup tips. Every bride and member of the wedding party should plan skin-care, trial runs and spa time to prepare for the big moment. The wedding look does not need to be overly complicated; however, most want to be pampered and prepared on their wedding day. We are sharing a few beauty secrets and wedding makeup tips to help you achieve the perfect look.

Beauty Secrets for Skincare

Preparation for your wedding day is more than just the wedding makeup. Six months prior to your wedding day, you should begin a skincare routine and a healthy diet for healthy skin. Brides and the entire wedding party should start preparing their skin with treatments and facials months prior to the event. You should avoid chemical skin treatments a few months before the wedding; therefore, if you are considering chemical treatments, plan this well in advance of your big day. Consult with an aesthetician about skincare early in the planning process to be prepared.

Exercise and Diet are the Best Beauty Secrets

Every bride is stressed and wants to look her best on her wedding day. Exercise relieves stress, enhances mood, and is healthy from the inside out in a way that everyone will notice. Exercise is only part of the equation. A balanced diet that is low in fats and high in protein will help support a good fitness routine. Most brides want to tone up and contour their body before their big day. It is easier to exercise and eat healthy with the support of a team. Get your wedding party on board and do it together. Make sure you consult with your doctor before beginning any diet or exercise routine, and schedule extra dress fittings as your wedding day approaches.

Hiring a Hair Stylist and Wedding Makeup Artist

About four months prior to your wedding day, you should book an appointment with a makeup artist and hairstylist. This is an opportunity to get to know your stylist and see them in action prior to the big day. There are a few things you should know about your artist before adding them to your wedding team. Review their portfolio and their social media gallery. Ask how many weddings they have done, and how long they have been practicing their trade professionally. You should know how many other brides they will be working with on the same day as yours. Talk about their backup plan and substitute artists that would replace them in the event they are unable to perform on your special day. Determine how many members of your wedding party will require service, and ask about the additional service and associated cost. You should know whether they charge per person, by the hour or the day. Talk about your timeline. Get to know the types of products they use. Discuss concerns, allergies and skin conditions. Have a trial run about a month or two prior to your wedding.

Wedding Makeup Tips

It is best to play it safe with a natural look on your wedding day. Avoid caking makeup that drags down features and falls into creases and lines. Wedding makeup should appear flawless under every light. It should be bright and allow your radiant skin to show through. Each bride has a unique skin type and different coverage needs. A professional wedding makeup artist can provide skincare consultations and mix foundation to meet your specific needs. There are different types of skin, tones and coverage needs to consider. Airbrush makeup can provide a light and flawless look. A special full coverage makeup is used to camouflage tattoos and scars. Some brides desire body makeup. The lightest coverage can be achieved with a tinted moisturizer. Gel foundation in a semi-matte will work best with oily skin. Mineral makeup works for most skin types; however, it does not provide a long-lasting wear. The length of the wear will be important on your wedding day. A primer beneath the foundation can keep makeup looking fresh longer. As with all things, a good foundation is the most important thing.

Beauty Secrets that Avoid Disaster

No matter how hard you prepare for the perfect look, anything can go wrong. If you wake up on the day of your wedding with puffy eyes, dip green tea bags in water and place them over your eyes for twenty minutes. An emergency wedding day beauty kit can save the day and your wedding pictures. There might be some kissing, drinks and food in the plan that can get messy. Keep an extra tube of lipstick in your emergency beauty bag. Mascara, tissue and a little powder can correct makeup through the night. Hair pins, nail polish, a needle, thread, and some moisturizer can come in handy. The key to avoiding disaster is to be prepared.
