This guide to wedding makeup will take the stress out planning your wedding makeup.
Prepare your skin for your wedding day
Unfortunately many women wait until they are only a few months away from their wedding day before they even begin to give any thought to skin care. Start early and take care of your skin now. You will need to work out your skin type to help you establish a proper skin care regime. This, combined with good eating habits, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep and regular exercise will ensure that your skin will be radiant on your big day.
Beware of facials!
Unless you have facials on a regular basis DO NOT get one the week before your wedding day. Facials can pull impurities to the surface, and you do not want to break out the week of your wedding. To also help avoid blotches and blemishes do not make any major changes in your skin care routine during the few weeks before your wedding. The weeks before your wedding is not the time to experiment with your skin care. If you regularly get facials have your last regular facial a good week before the wedding.
Pimples and acne.
If you do have a breakout, do not pick. Do not do anything that can irritate or redden or enlarge the problem. Use pure Aloe Vera to treat any bumps or breakouts. It is a wonderful healer.
Keep away from too much sun
Don't get too much sun before your wedding. Sunburns, peeling skin and tan lines can sabotage your special day.
Use a professional makeup artist or do it yourself
If you are confident in applying your own makeup there is no reason you can't do your own wedding makeup. If you are not so confident with your makeup abilities your wedding makeup is not the time to experiment - you want to look your absolute best on the day and your wedding photos will be your lifetime mementos of your special day. If you are unsure of your makeup abilities, or just want the peace of mind of not having to worry about your makeup, use a professional.
