5 makeup tips for your spring wedding

If you want to look your best on your big day, you might think that you need to hire a professional makeup artist to get everything just right. However, the fact of the matter is that items such as BABOR foundation and liquid eyeliner are all you need to make yourself look fabulous on your wedding day. While an expert could certainly help, there’s no rule that says you need to hire one to help you achieve a glowing complexion. Here are some key tips for ensuring that you look stunning as you walk down the aisle this spring.

1. Choose colors that complement the season
Chances are, you planned your wedding in the spring to enjoy the beautiful blooming flowers and warm weather. However, the season also gives you a wide variety of colors to choose from as you look for makeup to wear on your eyes, cheeks and lips. Think about selecting your cosmetics based on hues that remind you of the season. For instance, peach blush can go hand-in-hand with the spring sunlight. Baby pink lipstick can complement the colors of the flowers in your bouquet. It’s these types of small details that can make a noticeable difference when it comes to your appearance.

2. Make blemishes priorities
Before you begin fussing about what color to wear on your lids, you may want to tackle the more obvious flaws on your face beforehand.This might be a pimple or a blemish that has decided to show up a couple of days before your big day. Products such as Dermablend concealer can help you effectively eliminate some of these problems, as well as foundation. Just remember to practice your technique prior to the wedding. This will make the application process easier and let you know what to expect ahead of time!

3. Keep it in place
One of the biggest mistakes that you can make on your wedding day is to forget putting on primer! Marie Claire magazine claims that primer is critical if you want to keep everything from your eyeshadow to your blush from fading throughout the event. Think of it as insurance before you apply the rest of your makeup. Primer can also be effective at filling in fine lines and pores that may be disrupting your attempt at creating a flawless appearance.

4. Stay away from dramatic colors
This tip is especially a must if you’re having your event outside or during the day, when the mood is lighter, according to TLC. Even if you don’t want to take advantage of the colors of the season, try to keep it subtle and fun when choosing makeup. Pastel hues are a safe bet if you want to make sure that your appearance meets the grade.

5. Be careful when combining techniques
You might want Angelina Jolie’s lips and Mila Kunis’ eyes when you walk down the aisle, but even if you know how to achieve them with makeup, this doesn’t mean you should combine all of your techniques. Striking a balance is the key to a beautiful look.

“Beauty inspirations are wonderful, but make sure all the elements will work together – there may be a reason you aren’t finding all of those accentuated features in one photo!” Jeni Hoover, makeup artist, told The Knot.

Whether you’re getting married in a park under sunny spring skies or you intend to hold your wedding indoors, these tips can help you look your best. By doing your homework beforehand, you can be sure that your appearance is up to par with the standards of the season.

Paint your nails the day before your wedding

Paint your nails the day before your weddingWhile most men simply shave and shower before standing at the altar, women often have a long and involved beauty routine. From hair to makeup to nails, there is a lot for the bride to do right before the ceremony. However, gals may want to rearrange their schedule and get their nails done the day before their wedding.

"You are going to have a million things to do on the actual day, and you don't want to be dealing with wet nails," Allure contributing editor Alyssa Kolsky Hertzig told the publication.

Remember to bring your own nail polish to the manicurist. This way, if the lacquer chips accidentally, you'll have the exact hue with you for touch ups.

Additionally, you may want to select a neutral shade of nail polish, such as pale pink or beige.

"It will be much less noticeable if you do nick your nails [and don't have time to fix it]," the news source reports, "and you won't regret it later, as you might if you went for a more trendy color."

Prepare for your wedding – while you sleep!

Prepare for your wedding - while you sleep!While girls who are planning their weddings can often feel overwhelmed by massive to-do lists, there is one component that ladies should not neglect – their beauty routine! Not only will the bride be the center of attention on her big day, her look will be immortalized in the hundreds of wedding pictures taken throughout the celebration.

However, brides-to-be usually have their days filled with appointments with various vendors and professionals. Luckily, according to Glamour.com, there are a few beauty treatments that can be done while you sleep.

“Overnight’s the ideal time to do teeth-whitening treatments because you produce less saliva when sleeping, which means less fluid to wash away the active ingredients,” the news source reports. “You’ll also be less aware of any stinging sensations, which some people experience.”

Additionally, women can fight dry skin as they snooze. Before bedtime, apply a rich moisturizer, such as L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream, to your hands and feet and slip on a pair of thick socks and gloves. When you wake up, your skin will feel smooth and look flawless!

Beauty tips for brides getting married at seaWhen selecting makeup to wear as you walk down the aisle, there are many components to take into consideration – time of day, the color of your dress and its accessories, the season. However, brides who are preparing to say I do on a cruise ship may have a few other concerns to factor in, such as melting makeup and frizzy hair.

According to Glamour.com, women should prepare their skin before they sail away. “The better your skin looks before you leave on your trip, the less foundation and concealer you’ll need to ladle on in hot, humid weather,” the website reports.

However, even ladies with the clearest of skin will desire a bit of concealer on their big day. A foundation primer will help keep makeup in place. Jane Iredale Absence (SPF 15) Oil Control Primer forms a barrier between skin and makeup that cosmetics can adhere to. Additionally, the formula contains SPF 15, which will help protect your skin from the harsh sun.

Finally, brides on a boat can opt for a tight, elegant updo to keep frizzy hair at bay, but remember to pack plenty of pins and hairspray. However, if you want to wear your hair down, the news source recommends using a frizz-reducing product. Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur is an anti-frizz solution that nourishes hair while creating a sleek style.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19933418-ADNFCR

Men may want to consider a pre-wedding skincare routineWhile most beauty advice about getting ready for one’s wedding is geared toward brides-to-be, grooms should not neglect pre-nuptial skincare routines. And, with the right combination of products and know-how, it’s easy for men to look especially dashing as they wait at the altar for their fiance to walk down the aisle.

“It’s a special day and looking your best for yourself and your guests will add to all the effort and work you have put into your wedding day,” beauty expert Victor Henao told EquallyWed.com.

Begin your regime with an exfoliant, as it will rid your complexion of dead skin cells and impurities that can make skin look dull. Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub gently polishes skin and will make the surface smoother, clearing the way for an easier shave.

Next, the news source suggests applying a toner to remove any excess oils and a moisturizer to condition and hydrate skin, like Anthony Logistics Alcohol Free Toner and All Purpose Facial Moisturizer.

Finally, men should feel free to use a bit of concealer to hide any last-minute imperfections that may pop up. But remember to test products before the big day to make sure the the formula flawlessly matches your skin tone.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19920742-ADNFCR

Get white teeth for your wedding day

       
Friday, July 30th, 2010

Get white teeth for your wedding dayWhile most brides are decked out in white from head to toe as they walk down the aisle, few may give much thought to the most important white-colored accessory of all – their teeth. But one lady is sure to have a sparkling smile as she exchanges vows.

In a recent YouTube question and answer session, bride-to-be Katy Perry, who is engaged to funnyman Russell Brand, revealed that she’s obsessed with her pearly whites.

“I brush my teeth all the time,” the songstress said. “I wanted them to be, like, Britney Spears white. I used to grow up seeing her music videos, like, ‘What does she do? Does she get a new set of teeth all the time? They’re so white!’”

Ladies looking to brighten their smiles before their wedding can use a teeth whitening system from GoSMILE or SuperSmile. However, for a quick fix, girls can swipe on a bold lipstick – as long as it’s the right shade.

According to Allure.com, blue-based red and berry shades make teeth appear whiter, while formulas with golden or orange undertones will make teeth seem more yellow.

Youngblood offers several shades of lipstick that boast blue undertones, including Kranberry, Rosewater and Pink Quartz.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19914112-ADNFCR
