When getting married, there is so much that needs to be considered. Not only does this include the venue and the invites but you have the decorations, catering, and so on! That’s without even mentioning your wedding dress and accessories. To finish off the look, you need to get your makeup right too. In this guide, we are going to take a look at wedding beauty in further detail, informing you of some of the most common mistakes brides make so that you can make sure you do not make them.
Beauty hazards you need to avoid prior to your wedding (in the weeks building up to it)
Get your first wax months before the wedding
If you do not wax usually, you should not get your first wax just before your wedding. After all, you never know how you are going to react to it. The same applies to any other sort of treatment you may be planning on getting, for example, if you are going to have a peel or a facial. Some people have allergic reactions to things like this, and that is the last thing you want to deal with on your wedding day.
Don’t completely change your look
While it can be tempting to try something new for your wedding day, you are not advised to completely change your look. After all, you want to look the best version of yourself on your wedding day – you don’t want to look like you are trying to be someone else.
Don’t decide to try a new beauty regime
Now is not the time to completely change your beauty regime. As mentioned, you can easily have an allergic reaction by trying out a new product, and so it is not worth the risk. If you’re going to get sew in hair for your wedding, plan this in advance.
Beauty hazards to avoid on your wedding day
You don’t only need to make sure you follow the correct beauty procedure in the build-up to your wedding, but you also need to make sure that you do things right on your wedding day itself. This includes avoiding all of the following:
Don’t risk a breakout
In the weeks running up to your wedding, you need to be mindful of your skin. Do not do anything that is likely to cause a breakout. This includes staying away from foods that are likely to cause a breakout, such as chocolate.
Stay away from heat-based styling products
Straightening products and flat irons will break down your hair’s bonds, which makes it difficult to manipulate your hair into the style you want it and, then, to keep it into this style.
Don’t get a spray tan the day before your wedding
While it can be very tempting to get a spray tan the day before your wedding, this is not advisable. Make sure you book it at least a few days before your big day, as the last thing you want is for excess tan to come off on your dress.
Now that we have given you some advice regarding the things that you should not do when it comes to your beauty regime on the day of your wedding and before it, let’s take a look at some useful makeup advice too…
Have a trial
A lot of people assume that a makeup trial is going to be unnecessary; they can simply figure it out on the day of their wedding. However, if you do this, you are only going to make yourself even more stressed. Plus, you are not going to have the time for a bit of trial and error on the morning of your wedding. When it comes to the trial, it is important to give the makeup artist as much information as possible about what you want. Bringing references will help! Your makeup artist won’t think you’re being demanding – they would rather know what direction to go in.
Use individual false lashes
A lot of people opt for false lashes on their wedding day. Individual false lashes are best because they are more subtle and they look more natural. To create a natural, fluttery look, you should vary lengths.
Emphasize your eyes
When it comes to makeup, we are told that we should emphasize our eyes or our lips, never both. When it comes to your wedding, you should definitely choose to emphasize your eyes. It is all about choosing the right tone that is going to complement the color of your eyes. Another technique that works well is to keep the depth and intensity of the color closest to your lash line.
