There are millions of beauty tips all over the internet. The difference with these tips are that they come from the perspective of a wedding photographer and some fashion experience. Why is this important? Anyone can give beauty tips, but I see many brides through the year and I see the problems they go through on their wedding day. I see the things they didn’t think about. Let’s be honest, planning a wedding is not the easiest thing on earth. You plan a whole year at least for this one day, it can be a bit overwhelming.
If I can at least get you to a point to think out of the box with this blog, then I have been successful 😉
Beauty Tip #1 Take a long bubble bath before the chaos starts.
Your wedding day is never what you expect. Your planning did not end the night before the wedding. On your wedding day you will be sorting out problems and trying to keep everything you planned in order. I have not seen a bride do this yet, but a long hot bubble bath BEFORE your day starts will definitely have a calming effect. It will open the pores and you will feel refreshed and ready for the big day. This is your day, enjoy every moment.
Beauty Tip #2 Emergency touch up kit.
Some of the best makeup artist we have come across has given the bride a touch up kit. The reason why this is a good beauty tip, is because the brides use the touch up kit every time. You never know what the weather will be like on your wedding day. It may be a very hot day and we all know makeup does not do well in hot weather. Your day may be filled with tears of joy. No matter the circumstances you need a touch up kit. Always a good idea to have one of your bridesmaids hold on to it for you.
Beauty Tip #3 Pimple attack.
Stress has a huge effect on our bodies. Especially when you mix stress with the nervs 😉 There are many things you can do to get rid of pimples. If you have at least 24 hours to your big day, you can get a cortisone shot. Do not use acne treatments–they’ll just dry the spot out and make it harder to cover. Don’t overdo makeup. Use concealer as close to your skin tone as possible. I always say prevention is better than cure. So start at least a month before your wedding with a good acne system like exposed skin care.
Under no circumstances should you try to pop the pimple!
Beauty Tip #4 Keep the wind in mind.
Wind is wind, there is nothing you can do to prevent it. What you can do however is think about your wedding hairstyle. Will it be wind proof? Will it be able to go through a windy day and go on till the night is over? Keep in mind, your wedding photos should last a lifetime. Do not regret a bad wedding hairstyle.
Beauty Tip #5 Keep the tummy full.
Yeah beer won’t cut it 😉 We see many brides that forget to eat. Understandably you won’t have an apatite, the nervs are in high gear on the wedding day. But you need to eat, you don’t want to faint in front of all your guests. Have something to eat before your makeup is being done. There are many healthy options that won’t bloat you.
Beauty Tip #6 Buy your wedding shoes in advance.
I see this over and over, brides that can’t be in their wedding shoes for more than 5 minutes. You need to buy your wedding shoes in advance and take the time to walk them in. I have seen brides that have practiced their first dance in their wedding shoes to get comfortable in them. Get yourself a pair of flat shoes too. You are going to walk around a lot on your wedding day, especially during the bridal couples formal photos. It would give your feet some much needed rest to do the walking in the flat shoes.
Beauty Tip #7 Let your dress breath.
I always cringe when I arrive at the bridal suite and the wedding dress is still hanging in its bag. As soon as you get to the bridal suite, the first thing you need to do is take the wedding dress out of the bag and hang it somewhere where it can breath. Especially the wedding dress with netting, if those dresses get enough time to breath, you won’t even need to use a steamer. Always be extra careful when using a steamer, you only have one dress.
Beauty Tip #8 Perfume everything.
On this day you don’t have to hold back. You can never have enough perfume. But to be honest, if there is hot weather on your wedding day you will need to have perfume on everything. Spray your legs, arms, boobs and even your hair. A beautiful bride smells great!
Beauty Tip #9 Keep your man’s hands clean.
This is one no one ever thinks about. There are going to be photos, especially closeups, taken of your hands and yes your husbands hands too. In the months leading to the big day keep your man’s hands clean and well looked after. Maybe it will get him in the habit of doing it himself 😉
Beauty Tip #10 Relax.
There are going to be things on your day that go wrong. Be it small or big problems, it does not matter. You need to relax and enjoy your day. Whatever goes wrong will go wrong, you have no control over that. I always say you may know that something went wrong, not as its suppose to, but no one else will even notice. Just keep swimming 😉
Have fun planning your big day!
