A Beautiful Bride

Every bride wants to look radiant on her special day. From flawless skin, to eyes that shine...

If you want to look your best for your wedding day, plan ahead. Start on your skincare program months before your wedding, get facials regularly, practice with different makeup colors prior to your big day.


If you do not get facials regularly, do not get one within two weeks of your wedding. Facials deeply cleanse the skin, bringing impurities to the surface and sometimes this will result in an unsightly pimple or two on your wedding day.

If you do not typically use a face mask, then do not use one right before your wedding day as they too can cause break outs due to impurities in your pores coming to the surface.

Do not get a waxing just prior to your wedding day as this can cause reddness in the waxed area. Waxing should be done at least 1 week before the wedding. You do not want to apply a ton of concealer to hide any red marks if you do not need to.

Start a skincare routine long before your wedding day. When your skin is soft and smooth your makeup will stay on longer and you will glow.


After applying your foundation, set it with loose powder. If it is a warm day, apply loose powder prior to and after foundation. This will keep the foundation adhering to your skin longer. Apply the powder to the neck area as well and use concealer where needed.

Powder eyeshadow will last longer than a cream eyeshadow and is less likely to crease. Practice curling your eyelashes prior to your wedding day. Curled eyelashes make the eyes look wide awake. Apply mascara immediately before and after curling.

If you are not use to wearing false eyelashes, your wedding day is not the time to start as you will feel like there is a foreign object in and around your eyes. You do not want to be a blinking bride!
