1. USE PROPER SKIN CARE
Make sure you start a proper skin care regime several weeks before your day to get your skin in top shape.
This includes eating right, and getting the proper vitamins for your skin.
2. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Not getting enough water will leave you and your skin dehydrated. Water also helps you clean your system so it goes without saying that you skin will look radiant if you flush out all the toxins. And if all that wasn’t enough to make you want to drink….water is essential for losing body fat.
3. USE A WATERPROOF MASCARA
The last thing you want is to see your mascara streaking down your face in all your photographs.
4. DON'T SCHEDULE A FACIAL TO CLOSE TO YOUR DAY
Most are sensitive to getting a facial, especially if you have never had one before. Avoid the red flare-ups that are common by having your last facial at least a week prior to your day.
5. AVOID EAT SALTY FOODS and ALCOHOL THE NIGHT BEFORE
Too much salt causes fluid retention, not only in your body, but in your eyes and skin. You will wake up with puffy eyes, as with two much alcohol also. If this is the case, put a cold compress on your eyes for 10 minutes, and any eye gel with some caffeine as a main ingredient will also help.
6. DO USE A PROFESSIONAL FOR YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP
Obviously if you are not familiar with doing your own hair and makeup and your wedding day is the first time you are going to glam it up, you should definitely consult with a professional. Your wedding day is not the time to save $ on the biggest day of your life. Your photos and your memories are forever. Don’t you want to be the most confident and gorgeous?
A professional will help with the right colors, application, and tricks to make it last all day.
7. DO WEAR MAKEUP
As a continuation to # 6…..definitely DO WEAR MAKEUP. Not just your regular everyday makeup. This is your time to ‘GLAM IT UP’ a little…or a lot.
It’s your BIG DAY….be a star.
Walk down the aisle looking and feeling ‘special’. A professional will show you how to be glamorous but still look like YOU!
And if you are not the type to wear false eyelashes or some makeup normally, then please do some practice runs before your big day so you feel confident and comfortable with everything.
This goes for artificial nails as well.
8. GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Yes we know you are excited but it is so important for you to not do anything the night before but rest, relax and just dream happy thoughts about how gorgeous you will be, and how happy your new life is going to be.
Shower, listen to soothing music, sip some tea.…(no alcohol remember?), and just relax. Mediation, yoga, poetry, whatever it is that will get you to dose off for a full 8 hours.
