Bridal Beauty Tips For Your Special Day

Itís your day! The most special day of your life, so relax, enjoy, and donít fret the small stuff. Life isnít perfect and your wedding may have a few hick ups too, however if you go with the flow youíll be less stressed and more radient.

Itís your day! Youíve got the perfect dress, veil, and shoes Ė now you need the perfect makeup. Here are some Dos and Donít tips to help you on your very special day.


1. Use a professional makeup artist if possible. Have a pre-wedding consultation so your makeup artist already knows what you want

2. If you decide to do your own makeup then visit the cosmetic counter at least a month before your wedding and have the consultant try different colors to see what looks best on you

3. Do your makeup before dressing

4. Have your makeup done as close to the ceremony as possible

5. Have a facial two weeks prior to your wedding. If youíve not had facials in the past we would recommend you start this process 3-4 months prior to your wedding.

6. Use a primer before applying your foundation. This will make your foundation last longer. It is also a good idea to use an eye primer to eliminate shadow creasing

7. Make certain your foundation is an exact match to your skin tone

8. Use powdered rice papers to eliminate any shine

9. Use a light to medium lipstick that is long wearing.
If you will be having black and white photos then add a layer of lip gloss

10. Exfoliating your lips will result in your lipstick lasting longer

11. Use translucent powder to set your makeup

The Wedding Diaries: How to Get Married in Style Without Breaking the Bank By Laura Bloom, Richard Craze, Roni Jay from

"If you're getting married soon or (like me) not for another year it is a must. It's funny, heart warming, thought provoking and above all a good read."

12. Blend, blend, and blend again to make sure all your makeup is smooth and even.

13. If you are prone to red eyes use eye drops prior to the ceremony

14. Use water proof mascara just incase the tears of joy appear

15. Charcoal, navy, or mahogany are your best options for eyeliner. Black or brown may look too severe, especially if your wedding will be held during the daytime and/or outdoors.

16. When applying your makeup wear a button shirt that can be easily removed when its time to dress.

17. Place a towel over your head prior to slipping into your gown to avoid getting makeup on your gown.

18. Don't forget your blush! A pop of color on your cheeks is like an instant facelift.

19. If youíve had your hair professionally done and you will be removing your veil, then have the stylist show your mom or bridesmaids how to fix your style

20. A week before your wedding rehearse your makeup Ė practice, practice, and practice some more, until you perfect the look you want for your wedding day

21. Treat nails at least a week prior to your wedding to ensure you are not dealing with ragged or dry cuticles

22. If your wearing sandals then about a month before your wedding start your foot treatment so your feet look as good as the rest of you

** Don't **

1. Do not do your own makeup. Have a professional makeup artist or a friend do it. Chances are youíve got a bit of the jitters with all the excitement which could result in you having difficulties doing your own makeup

2. Donít make your foundation thick like a mask. Light for overall eveness is best.

3. Donít use shiny or shimmering products on dry skin

4. Donít overuse lip gloss

5. Donít have a facial within the previous 48 hours of your wedding. Facials can occasionally have unexpected results and you donít need any surprises.

6. Donít pop any pre wedding zits, instead use Visine to take the red out

7. Donít fret or stress Ė go with the moment

Follow these tips and you'll look gorgous on your big day!
