We hope you enjoyed our first installment of beauty tips to get you ready for your BIG day. Now that we’ve got you moving on those, it’s time to prepare yourself for the next steps. Your wedding is just around the corner…and time surely flys!
Browse vendor listings for hair and makeup professionals in your area. Book a hair consultation with a stylist you like. You might nail your hair trial on the first try, but oftentimes it takes two or more sessions to settle on the perfect look.
Cut back on your caffeine (yes, we know you can do it!) and enjoy the wonders that less coffee and soda can do for your skin and teeth.
Start weekly at-home body exfoliations, concentrating on your back, shoulders, and arms. Try using an intensive lip treatment nightly to keep lips soft and smooth (i.e. kissable).
Spend some time testing out spray-tan treatments or self-tanning creams to get your technique right (even if you plan on saving the tan for your honeymoon.)
Make sure you have locked in your wedding day hair look – this might take another visit to a stylist with headpiece and inspiration photos in tow.
Attend a makeup trial or start experimenting with a variety of cosmetics if you’re doing your own. Visit department store makeup counters for advice or browse the drugstore beauty aisle.
Decide on your wedding day fragrance. Sample a few, the scent will always remind you of your wedding day.
Consider brightening your smile with an at-home teeth-whitening treatment.
Get a trim. It’s best to do so two months to six weeks before the big day: this gives you enough time to both get rid of the split ends and to grow your hair out a little so that it doesn’t look unnatural.
Talk with your stylist about the looks you envision for your bridal party, and the schedule for getting everyone’s hair and makeup done on the morning of your wedding.
If you are concerned about daily staining of your teeth, keep your smile looking bright and white with a teeth-whitening touch up for 5 minutes a day.
Get glowing skin by adding an extra dose of exfoliation to your routine with an at-home microdermabrasion kit or a grainy scrub.
