Unfortunately, the summer heat and sunshine can actually do some damage to a brides hair and makeup on her wedding day.  A big day such as a wedding is not the time you want smeared makeup or frizzy hair before the reception even starts. Below are some great tips on how to look and stay fresh on your wedding day.

 

 

To look light and fresh on your wedding day try to not cake on your makeup.  This is another reason to have your make-up done by a professional so it will look beautiful and last all day.  Remember, the simpler the better!  Although we love to get creative to eye shadow every now and then, your wedding day is not the time.  You want to look like yourself and not to anything too trendy.  Aside from makeup, Vera Wang brides must make sure their skin is taken care of weeks before the wedding.  Do not try and get super tan for your wedding!  This is a common mistake many brides make and they end up being way too tan on their big day.  A little color is nice but you don’t want to look like you just spent a week in the tanning bed.  This can also lead to freckles and dry skin.

You want to make sure you are well moisturized weeks before the wedding so your skin looks fresh and your make-up doesn’t get dry.  If you tend to get oily, carry some oil absorbing sheets around with you on your big day to blot as necessary.  I also recommend using a lighter color lipstick.  We all have our favorite shade of red but you don’t want everyone focusing on your mouth all day.  Just as with your hair, find pictures of make-up that you like and take them with you when you do a practice session with your make-up artist.  Or if you are going to do your own make-up, try it a few different ways and take pictures of each style so you can see how it will show up in pictures.  After all that shopping for the perfect gown brides don’t want to leave their hair and make-up to chance.
