Avoid Skin and Hair Disaster on Your Big Day

Avoid Skin and Hair Disaster on Your Big Day


When your big day arrives, you want to make sure that you look perfect. A lot of the stress of this can be solved by having a professional do the makeup for the bride and her wedding party. However, deciding on the look you want is a big decision. It can be hard to settle on what you want. Especially because you don’t have forever before the wedding arrives. If you need inspiration, browsing the internet will give you a good place to start. Once you’ve picked a style, you’ll feel much better.

But what about your skin and hair? How can you make sure you don’t wake up facing a breakout and a head full of frizz? Luckily, I’ve got some top tips, to make your face the perfect canvas for your makeup.


Daily Skin Routine
Looking after your skin every day will help to keep it healthy for the big day. If anything does happen, like a sudden huge spot, you don’t have to panic. Quick treatments can help to bring down swelling and dry out the spot. And makeup does an expert job of covering it. Even so, it’s best to give yourself the best chance of avoiding any mishaps. Find a cleanser, toner and moisturiser that work for your skin and use them every day. Remember to take off your makeup at the end of the day, and use a night cream before bed. Using a face mask now and then will help too. And a luxurious facialimage at your favourite salon can’t hurt either!

Look After Your Brows and Lashes
Makeup can also do all kinds of awesome things for your eyebrows and eyelashes. But, again, it’s best to have a healthy starting point. If your eyelashes are looking a little lifeless, try looking for a rescue remedy. For example, there’s the one from Revitalash UK. Products like these will help you to get healthier eyelashes that look fuller and better hydrated. You can find similar solutions for your eyebrows to keep them bold and defined. Having your eyebrows plucked, threaded or waxed in advance of the wedding is a good idea. But don’t do it too close to the big day.

Disastrous hair is slightly harder to get into shape for your wedding. Of course, you can help to tame it with conditioners, hairspray and the like. But if you haven’t been caring for your hair, you won’t be able to magically rescue it in just a couple of hours. You need to address any problems a few months before the wedding, at least. Sort out dry or oily hair or skin and continue to care for your hair until the day arrives. If you want to have extensions or colouring, start discussing it with your stylist.

You can do these things to help prevent any disasters on your wedding day. But if the worst happens, don’t panic and think everything is ruined. Choose the right makeup artist and hair stylist, and they’ll be able to rescue you and save the day.
