Your wedding day is going to be one of the most special days in your life. It’s only fitting that you seek to look your best and be your brightest. A beautiful wedding should not only be reflected on your wedding gown, but also on your face, your skin, your smile and your overall aura. After all, it is the first day of the rest of your life with the person you love the most. Here are 10 amazing tips to looking your best on your wedding day.
1. Start Early With Skin Preparation
When we say early, we mean as early as the day you start planning your wedding. Skin care is a habit that doesn’t give you perfect results overnight. Skin care should be done regularly and correctly.
If you want smooth and healthy skin on your wedding day, be sure to schedule those facial spas as you near the big day. On the day of your wedding, give a touch of your skin care routine early in the day, before the preparation starts.
2. Make Your Makeup Last
Make up is pretty important during your wedding – that much is true. To keep your make up fresh looking and avoid the cakey or oiliness effects of makeup, put your makeup schedule on the last part of your wedding day’s preparation.
If you normally use cheap makeup, at least get some higher-quality ones for your wedding day. It also makes sense to have your makeup done by someone with experience doing wedding makeup instead of doing it yourself as you would most other days.
3. Keep Your Manicure Simple
You would want your guests to focus on your beautiful and stunning wedding face. So as much as possible, avoid putting aesthetic emphasis on other parts of your body, like your hands.
Choose a simple manicure and a nail polish color that is not too bright or attention-grabbing. You might forego this tip if you’re planning a themed wedding, but in general simple is better.
4. Use A Teeth Whitening Kit
You’re up for a long day of smiles and laughter. Showing your teeth is inevitable. Make sure your teeth are bright, clean and always have that camera-ready smile. Floss, clean, and brush your teeth during preparation time. Use a teeth whitening kit to give your teeth that bright and white boost.
5. Drink Plenty of Water
The busy buzz of preparation and people going in and out your wedding suite can easily take your mind off drinking water. Furthermore, the excitement of your wedding day can make you totally forget about staying hydrated.
Drinking water is very important. Keep a water bottle beside you at all times and have a sip regularly.
6. Aim for Looking Like Yourself
While you would want to look like the star that you are supposed to be on your wedding day, your make up should remain simple and only enhance your beauty instead of covering your face with an entirely new look.
You want your partner to see you as the best version of yourself on your wedding day, not someone completely different.
7. Choose a Fitting Hairstyle
Your hairstyle choice is important because this can either accentuate your face better or it could take all the attention from your face and into the hairdo. You can choose a hairstyle that goes with your veil or hair pins. Choose a hairstyle that makes your face clear and bright.
8. A Light Meal the Day Before
Your food choice a day before the wedding and during preparation time can affect your mood and feelings. For instance, a heavy meal can make you feel full during the wedding ceremonies.
Eating unhealthy and junk food can even lead to stomach ache or bloating, and you definitely don’t want that. Choose light and healthy meals a day before the wedding.
9. Have a Good Night’s Sleep
It’s easily understandable that you may not be able to sleep due to the excitement of your wedding. However, you need to stay rested and look fresh for your wedding.
Try to get to bed earlier than normal with the understanding that you will have difficulty falling asleep. Get at least six to eight hours of sleep to ensure you have enough energy to take on the festivities of your wedding day.
10. Relax and Enjoy Yourself
It’s your wedding. It’s the day you have dreamed about since you were little. There’s no point in stressing over little details. The best day of your life is here. Relax and enjoy this day’s festivities that is meant for you and your better half.
Make your wedding day even more memorable by preparing for your look and overall aura. While aesthetics are important, your health should also sit high on your priorities, for after your wedding, you will have a healthy marriage.
