Planning your dream wedding can be a stressful experience. There’s so much to do! You have to plan the whole event, from the venue, catering and invitations down to what you’ll wear. Don’t forget your makeup, hair and body — these are equally important parts of your look for your big day. For three simple beauty tips that will help keep you looking gorgeous on the day of your wedding, see this article.
1. What to do about your makeup
If you’re not sure if it’s a good idea to take off your makeup before you go to bed, you should know that makeup is linked to breakouts. This is because it clogs your pores and prevents your skin from breathing. Another thing people tend to do is put on foundation which does the same thing. The problem is that it causes more breakouts. You really don’t want to end up like Kim Kardashian.
If you do decide to go for a protective look, it’s actually beneficial — especially if you have really dark skin. A good sunscreen is essential to take off all the makeup and you really don’t need anything travel-sized or waterproof. The Sunscreen Seal COSRX 22 is a great option if you have very sensitive skin.
The day before the big day, your skin is probably looking a little dull. It doesn’t need any more stress on top of that. If you want a more even and clear complexion, try what it’s called the clean face peel. It increases blood flow to your face, removes dead skin cells, and loosens the surface skin layers to promote clearer skin. I’ve used face peels and know they were a life-changing experience for my skin. It was six months after the fact when I was glowing and had visible soft skin.
You’re probably still thinking what am I saying, you don’t want to put anything on your face, do I? Try this. Keep a small plastic baggie and your makeup in it. It will help filter any spillage that might happen during or right after your application.
If you wear any of the make-up removers on regular intervals, you should treat your skin better. It actually harms your skin for it to stay like that. Try out gentle cleansers, moisturizers and pore strips. Best of all — make sure these do not contain any harsh ingredients. 95% of all skincare products are full of those.
Your skin can get flaky, it’s normal.
2. How to choose the right hairstyle for you
A good hairstyle can really make a difference in your appearance. Whether you’re looking for a new look to try out for fun or you’re going for a specific look to suit a new career or personal goal, here are some things to consider when choosing a hairstyle. First, go with a high-low fade or voluminous up do. Although a plain, clean hairstyle is all that most people are looking for, having a hairstyle that’s look good doesn’t necessarily mean you need one to match.
Something as simple as a man bun or undercut hairstyle that still has some movement or texture can be quite striking when paired with a neutral, style-neutral hair color. A minimal style, like monk or neutral hair colors, can also be arranged to go all the way to the back of your head and cover the top of your ears, for example. Having a bit of color of any kind goes a long way in drawing attention to your most important features and conveying your personality.
Did you know that people who were married before 2000 typically spent 20% of their total household income on their marriage income every year? That’s according to data gathered from American Community Survey. The higher your income is, the more you should allocate towards your wedding expenses. If you’re still figuring this out, you can learn more about it here.
For less money than weddings cost in general, you can plan a non-traditional wedding. If you’re thinking something like a vegetarian wedding, consider sending guests home with a box of vegetarian food. You can even get creative and offer your guests a surprise glass of wine or a cold-pressed juice. For more information on how to plan one, check out this Pinterest board from Practical Venues that offer ideas for non-conventional weddings.
Your dress is the most formal piece of clothing everyone will be wearing on the big day, so it’s even more important that you make it look fabulous.
3. How to look great on your wedding day — body tips
If you want to look your best on your wedding day, here are some tips to help:
•Get enough sleep. It’s important to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night before your wedding day because lack of sleep can cause bags under your eyes, which will make you look tired and older.
•Get a haircut and a manicure .Often, couples get married and then spend a long time changing their hairstyles, wearing different colored lipstick, and beyond. Here, use extra products for your hair and nails, and at least get a manicure to seal the deal on your ring.
•Manicure. Have a wedding that’s more personal — do the manicure yourself.
•Wear makeup. If you’d rather have a natural look, use a makeup artist who specializes in wedding makeup to do it for you. •Avoid white or ivory clothing. This is the traditional wedding dress color but, it’s extremely unusual for brides to have the time or energy to wear something like this. An ivory dress will also look dated (and seems to be the traditional color for weddings).
•Dress for different occasions. If you’re worried about looking like you’re old and stuffed for your big day you can pair different ivory or ivory/gold pieces with neutrals for an other era look.
•Choose fabric. Go with a cotton or wool blouse for a casual look or an ivory blouse for a formal event.
•Drink water. While we can’t exactly force you to drink water before your event, we suggest it anyway. It’s just more hydrating.
•Sweat. While we can’t force you to sweat before your wedding, much like brushing your teeth, our suggestion is to prepare your hands and arms especially for the big day. Wash your hands with an essential oil blend and take a steaming bath (for the love of science, stop there right now).
Planning your wedding can be stressful but these beauty tips will help you shine on the big day and feel great about yourself.
Weddings are all about the bride, but a lot of brides-to-be go into the planning process feeling anxious and worried about how they’re going to look on the big day. Here are some beauty tips that will help you feel great about yourself on the day of your wedding and make you feel like a queen.
Long lines and crowds are stressful, to say the least, and that’s good because it means you finally get to experience what wedding planning is like. I’m very close with the maid of honor and she really makes me feel like a princess. Did you hear that? A princess. Oh, and the groom, well, who knew he’d be such a good sport? Of course, you’re the coordinator of the wedding, so you’re the one so excited about having to put on all that makeup and get dressed in your best. You’re also the one who is going to be there for hours, maybe even the whole day, so feel really good about the details you’ve chosen that make you feel prepared. If they don’t appeal to you, don’t worry about that either. It can be whatever wedding you want it to be.
For your wedding bouquets, choose flowers that are super vibrant and a perfect match. You’ll take plenty of photos so you can share them with everyone, and those flowers can make a big impression on your guests as they leave.
Your own hair is going to be even more important than usual; without it, you’re nothing more than a cephalopod in a suit. You’re tied into your grod throughout the entire process and are the one to match your hair color to the bride. Make sure you pick a color that reflects your personality and personality. If you’re more girly than the bride, for example, pick pink or light blue for your wedding hair. If you’re more of an ocean princess, maybe a plummy pink is your favorite. When you choose your hair colors, remember it’s your wedding hairstyle, not anyone else’s.
