8 Tips To Make Your Wedding Day Makeup Last

It’s Your Big Day!
Your Makeup Has To Stay!

The question was asked: How can I ensure my makeup lasts throughout my wedding day?

This is a day to remember, so much planning, so much prepping but it is finally here!

Your mind could be on your groom, but since you know he will always be there your mind then focuses on something that may run that day… your makeup!!

It’s always good to have a plan of how your makeup will last throughout your entire wedding day. We have compiled some tips that our brides find most useful!

8 Tips To Make Your Wedding Day Makeup Last

1. Select a great makeup artist! One that will listen to what your wishes are and give you ideas from prior wedding experience!
2. Start with a clean, washed face. No matter how wild your bachelorette party was, this is a new day, new face, new life… 😉
3. Have your makeup artist use a good primer on your face to keep makeup in place
4. Use a setting spray to set your makeup. If you do not have that, a brief mist of regular hair spray will work as well.
5. Waterproof eyeliner and mascara are a must!
6. If you would like to get a facial before your wedding, do so 3-4 days before. Sometimes facials can bring out impurities that can make your skin vulnerable temporarily. 3-4 days allows all of that to occur before your big day.
7. Try to blot tears, on wedding day; avoid wiping tears to ensure makeup does not smudge and run onto the tissue
8. Pick an amazing maid/matron of honor to have touch up blush, eyeliner and lipstick.

Remember: Your makeup is essentially for the pictures! When you are doing a makeup trial, take pictures in great lighting get a gist of what you will look like!

Good Question!

The question was asked: Is it safe to color my hair when pregnant?

Yes you may! Coloring your hair while pregnant is not a problem at all provided you seek professional guidance first. You can use ammonia free hair color products as well as highlight your hair, but being careful not to apply color to your scalp.

Things to remember!

– Use ammonia- free base/ semi permanent or all natural hair dye like Henna
– Test a strand first
– Do this in open space, properly ventilated
– Better to be in done after 1st trimester
