Happily ever after starts on your wedding day.
And on our very own particular wedding day, we want everything to be in place and we want everything to be perfect. This would invariably include our state of dress and how we look during our big day. Everything must be in tiptop form from our crowning glory that is our hair down to our manicured toes. Of course, as this is a once in a lifetime chance to wed the love of your life, it is only understandable that we might as well look the part—not only for the flashing lights and cameras but for our husbands-to-be as well.
However, it is universal knowledge that looking best on your wedding day requires months and months of preparation. You may hire all the best makeup personnel and professionals in the world, but it still would not compensate for a good foundation of proper diet and good exercise. Apart from grooming ourselves to be healthier and slimmer for our wedding day, this is also the day where we want our skin to look its brightest and undoubtedly a bit of makeup could help you achieve that. Regardless of what it may be, looking our best during our designated big days would require work. So, if you are looking for some tips and tricks on how to look your very best on your wedding day, take a gander at the guidelines offered below so whether you are walking the aisle on The Teatrillo or La Castellana, you are assured of a stellar look.
1.) Test run your look before the big day.
People may have been under this misguided superstitious belief that you should never wear your wedding gown before your actual wedding date. However, that seems counterintuitive as getting into your gown before your wedding day assures you that it fits (and if it does not, you can make the necessary adjustments). Apart from that, it would also do you well if you tried on different makeup looks and hairdos with your dress to see what works best with your wedding gown.
2.) Amp up on color
Since you will be garbed predominantly in white, now is the perfect time to amplify your makeup colors. You do not want to look washed out nor pale, so apply a stronger and a little bit brighter color on your lips and your cheeks—something a little more than your usual everyday look. Neutral colors do not translate well on photographs and would make you look a bit sickly. Choose eye-popping colors instead.
3.) Do not alter your hair prior to your wedding day
You may have thought of getting a new haircut or perhaps a new color for your hair, or you might have even been contemplating about straightening your curls or perming your super straight hair. If there is one wedding beauty advice that you should heed, it is this: Do not attempt to alter your hair prior to your wedding day. This is because you might not like the results and come wedding day, you will hardly appreciate the overall effect if you do not like how your hair looks. If you plan on altering your hairstyle, be safe and schedule it after the wedding day.
4.) Visit your dentist
It is the happiest day of your life so you will be doing a whole lot of smiling those pearly whites. To make sure your teeth are in their healthiest form, visit and consult your dentist. He or she will be able to grant you your whitest and brightest smile for your big day.
5.) Look like yourself
Above all, always remember not to overdo it. You may want to look your best but your husband-to-be intends to marry you and not the stranger you have managed to concoct and embellish on your face for the day. Do not try to emulate any looks or try to achieve any look aside from your own. The goal for your wedding day and wedding night is to look your best, be confident and beautiful. Remember, you are going to be facing your husband-to-be at the altar, make sure he would recognize you too underneath all the makeup.
