So, you’re getting married! Congratulations! You must be terribly excited and perhaps even a bit overwhelmed, especially as the big day approaches. You want everything to be perfect, from the centerpieces to your eyelashes, and to make this happen, you should start your preparations on time. We’ve put together a list of basic beauty preparations every bride should consider before her wedding day, to ensure she looks flawless.
The right hairstyle
Perhaps you’re one of the brides who had her perfect hairstyle figured out months (or even years) in advance, but believe us – nothing is always as it looks in your mind. The perfect hairstyle might not be so perfect once you try it on, and the absolute worst day for you to discover this is your wedding day. This is the reason why you should book an appointment with your hair stylist and work with them on your hairdo a couple of months (or weeks) before your wedding day. This way, if you don’t like the way your hair looks, you still have time to try out different hairstyles and find the right one.
The perfect smile
You will be smiling and laughing a lot on your wedding day, and besides choosing the lipstick that will last for hours, you should also make sure your teeth look good too. If you have crooked or uneven teeth, you might think that the only solution is braces, but braces take years, and you don’t have that much time. Fortunately, there are other options that are just as effective but much faster. Traditional braces might take years to make your teeth even, but after getting all on 4 dental implants, you should recover after a few days. Combine this with some teeth whitening methods, and you’ll be left with the perfect teeth and smile – all you’ll need afterwards is the perfect lipstick.
Speaking of lipstick, you should pay special attention to your makeup. If you’re a makeup enthusiast, you probably already have your favorite brands and your makeup style, and it shouldn’t be too difficult for you to pick your bridal look. If, on the other hand, you don’t wear makeup as often but would like to wear some on your wedding day, you should start preparing a couple of months in advance. There’s a lot to consider and your professional makeup artist and you should work together on your look. The location, the wedding theme, the wedding dress and hairstyle all play an important role when it comes to makeup look, and you shouldn’t look at yourself in the mirror on the big day and look disappointed. Do a mock wedding day makeup a few weeks before to make sure you are on the same page with your artist.
No matter how much makeup you’re wearing and how quality it is, unless your skin is healthy, you will not look radiant. Skin preparations should start months in advance: you should remove your makeup before going to bed (no excuses!), cleanse and moisturize every day, use gentle exfoliators, and apply hydrating and nourishing masks regularly. You should also start getting regular facials at least a couple of months before the big day, and even try some homemade masks for your skin type.
The dates on the calendar are closer than they appear, or so they say, and it’s easy to lose track of time when you have a lot on your mind. Even though weddings give brides so many things to worry about, you should always make your own health and well-being a priority. It’s going to be one of the best days of your life, and you don’t want all the stress to eat away at your happiness, so start your beauty preparations on time.
