Say yes to lashes
False lashes can be a little intimidating; but when applied by a professional, the whole process is pretty quick and trust me, well worth it. Lashes instantly open up the eyes, and really add 3D definition in a way that makeup simply cannot. Even if you have long lashes, falsies can add volume- fill in those gaps to give you a richer, fuller lash line, and overall more definition. The result: bigger, brighter and more defined eyes. Who doesn’t want that? My advice is to go for the lashes- they really look beautiful in photos and help to make everyone’s makeup look uniform.
Keep the heavier eye creams and face oils to a minimum on the wedding day. If you like to use richer skin care, use it the night before. Keep to your normal skin care routine for two weeks prior to the big day. Making changes to your routine, getting a facial you have never had, extractions or trying new products shouldn’t be attempted. If you get your brows threaded or waxed, get them done at least a week before.
Skip the SPF
For the wedding day, try to avoid applying any SPF, at least on your face. SPF (chemical or mineral) is notorious for having the potential to flash back in photography. These are the pictures the bride will have forever; and they likely cost a pretty penny! For one day, don’t apply any SPF to your face, neck, chest or shoulders.
Bring a couple lip options, Q-tips, blotting papers and a makeup refresh/setting spray
If you are a part of the bridal party or will be in most of the professional pictures, you should be prepared to touch up your makeup throughout the daytime portion of the wedding. Being prepared is never a bad thing, and there will be at least one gal in your party that will need something. Bringing additional things like bobby pins, safety pins, double sided tape, a nail file, small scissors and earring backs will score you extra points as well!
