Wedding Day Beauty Hacks That Every Bride Should Know

For most women, looking their best on their wedding day is an absolute must. That’s why over 62% of brides try to lose weight before the big day and hire makeup and hair artists to achieve that bridal glow. While you may look great during the first hour of your wedding festivities, there is the possibility of looking tired, sweaty and oily as the day wears on. If you’re about to tie the knot, it’s important to ensure you look pristine from your walk down the aisle to the last few minutes of your reception. To look your best on your wedding day, here are some bridal beauty hacks you need to know.

Keep your jewelry in pristine condition

Out of all your wedding day bling, your engagement ring and wedding bands are going to be the focal point of your entire look. This is why it is important to take your time when shopping for these pieces as there are so many ring sizes and styles to choose from. However, apart from choosing the right rings, you also need to take care of your other pieces so that they look their best on the big day. First, avoid using body lotion and perfume while wearing your earrings, necklace, bracelets or rings, as these substances can tarnish the stones and metals of your jewelry. It’s best to apply these products before wearing jewelry and wait at least 5 minutes before slipping on your bling.

Then make sure your earring backs are secure to avoid losing one or both on your wedding day. If they feel a little loose, replace the earring backs with ones that screw back or ones that stick to the earring post. Meanwhile, for those who plan to wear heavy dangling earrings, it’s important to distribute the weight evenly to avoid lengthening your piercings or tearing your earlobes. You can do this by wearing ear pads behind your ears, or wearing a support chain that connects the earrings to small clips that you attach to your hair.

Make your makeup last all day

If you hire a professional to do your makeup for your wedding, then you can be sure that they have taken steps to make your makeup last all day. However, if you’re doing your makeup yourself, you’ll need to invest in a few things to make your look bulletproof, especially if you’re having a summer wedding.

First you need a primer, make sure it is silicone based and leaves a matte finish. Next, you need a foundation with a matte or semi-matte finish. Avoid dewy or glowing foundation as it will make you look too shiny or oily later. Using a matte foundation, concealer and powder will also prevent makeup flashbacks so you can take all the flash photos you want at your wedding.

You will also need matte eyeshadows in neutral tones, powder blush and lipstick in a matte or satin formula. Don’t forget to add waterproof mascara and eyeliner to ensure your eye makeup looks clean throughout your special day. After applying your makeup, seal everything in with a spray mist and then gently fan dry your face.

Make your perfume last longer

You’ll probably be too busy to think about repurposing fragrance during your wedding day. While you can certainly freshen up your perfume after the wedding ceremony, there are ways to make your scent last a little longer. The secret lies in layers. Plan to use a body wash, body lotion, and perfume from the same line or one that shares the same scent profile. For example, if you use a rose body wash, use a rose-scented lotion all over your body, and a rose perfume on top. Also, since perfume tends to fade quickly when you apply it to your skin, another way to make it last longer is to spray it on your hair. However, don’t spray it on your gown as it can leave stains. Instead, sprinkle a little on your bra so you can get hints of your perfume throughout the day.

Every bride deserves to look and feel her best on her wedding day. Consider these tips to look beautifully fresh, glowing and ethereal throughout your special day.
