For most of us, our wedding day will be one of the most special days in our lives. We spend months planning the entire day out in meticulous detail, choosing the perfect wedding dress and fantasizing about just how amazing our wedding day will be.
And, of course, we want everything to be perfect. From the groomsmen’s ties and the bridesmaids gowns to every note in the entrance music, every last detail must be just how we imagined it.
So, it is no surprise that just like the rest of our wedding day, we want our hair and makeup to look perfect. But what is the best way to ensure that as we walk down the aisle, we look absolutely perfect?
To help you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day, we have put together some beauty tips below.
1. Take care of your skin
If you want your skin to look radiant as you walk down the aisle, it is important to put a skin care routine in place prior to the big day. Especially as, with so much to organise, stress-induced breakouts and flare-ups are inevitable.
Every night before bed, make sure to take off all makeup using natural antibacterial makeup remover. Such as a tea tree, witch hazel or aloe vera based makeup remover. Avoid using makeup wipes, as they are not good for your skin. Stick to a makeup remover or cleanser that is applied to the skin and removed with a clean flannel and warm water.
2. Moisturise and drink lots of water
Your skin always looks its best when it is adequately moisturised and hydrated. To keep your skin well hydrated throughout the day, make sure that you are drinking at least one and a half litres of water.
Don’t go to bed without applying a nice, rich moisturiser, this will soothe and hydrate your skin while you sleep. In the morning, after cleansing your skin with a cleanser and warm water, make sure to apply day cream. This will help to keep your skin hydrated all day.
3. Exfoliate everywhere
Instead of just exfoliating your face, before your big day you should be exfoliating your whole body. If you want super soft skin, that is.
Exfoliating your skin can help to remove dead and dull skin cells from the skin’s surface, making it soft and super smooth . Leading up to your wedding day, you should be exfoliating your entire body once a week and your face two to three times a week.
4. Choose your makeup carefully
When you are choosing your makeup for your wedding day, there are lots of things to consider. Naturally, you want to look and feel fantastic, and you want your makeup to look picture perfect, but what about the style of makeup?
Think about the makeup style would you like – natural, glamorous, elegant? Think about the type of look you want. Do you want to use waterproof makeup, just in case? Get some ideas for the kind of look you want and then discuss them with your makeup artist.
If you can’t afford a makeup artists, have a look online for wedding makeup ideas and online tutorials for how to create certain looks, etc.
5. Pack a quick fix bag for the wedding
Pack a quick fix bag of bits for the wedding reception. Pack some bits and bobs, like makeup, nail polish to touch up your nails, deodorant, and breath mints, so that you can quickly fix any problems.
