Is your big day almost here? You are about to start a new chapter in your life, and we are sure you must be feeling every kind of emotion right now, which is a normal thing to happen. The wedding is one of the most important days in every woman’s life where she wants to look the best. From picking the right outfit to finalizing your makeup, everything is pretty crucial when it comes to preparing yourself for the big day. No bride wants anything to go wrong on their wedding day, especially when it concerns beauty. Aside from taking extra care of your skin and hair, it’s also important to ensure that you are making the right decisions when it concerns beauty.
Getting your makeup done on the wedding day only to realize it didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to look just because you skipped the trial can be quite disappointing. Therefore, it’s imperative that you make all the right beauty decisions for your wedding so that you look your absolute best on your big day. We have jotted down a list of some beauty mistakes that every bride should avoid committing before the wedding.
Forgetting to pay attention to your lips
Your lips can have a huge impact on your overall appearance; hence, you don’t want to go wrong here. When it comes to choosing the finish of your lipstick, you should avoid using a creamy or glossy lipstick and use a matte one instead. Glossy lipsticks can smudge very easily, and matte lipsticks, on the other hand, don’t smudge easily, and they also have better staying power. Also, you can make your lipstick long-lasting by wearing a lip primer before applying your lipstick.
Choosing the wrong foundation shade
Picking the foundation in the wrong shade is one of the worst things you could be doing. Using a foundation shade that is lighter than your natural skin tone is a common faux pas, and it can look very artificial on the camera. Therefore, when it comes to picking the foundation shade for yourself, make sure to do a patch test and see if it matches your skin tone.
Skipping your makeup trial
What happens when your makeup doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to look? You obviously cannot do much about it, and that’s what makeup trials are for. Once you have picked the kind of makeup you want to go for on your wedding and instructed your makeup artist the same, you should go for a makeup trial to see how everything turns out. This will also give you a chance to make some changes to your makeup if you don’t like a certain thing about it. Like they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry, therefore, book an appointment with your makeup artist in advance to get a makeup trial.
Don’t try anything new
While we understand you want everything to look the best on your wedding day, you also shouldn’t try something that you have never done before, especially when your wedding is just a few days away. For instance, if you have never tried heavy smoky eyes before or don’t feel much confident about it, you shouldn’t go for it as your wedding isn’t the day where you want to experiment or take risks.
Getting waxed a day before your wedding
Things like waxing shouldn’t be done at the last-minute, the worst case, a day before your wedding. You never know, your skin might randomly decide to break out into rashes, and that’s the last way you want your skin to appear on the day of your wedding. Therefore, you should get waxing done a few days before your wedding, and if you are choosing to go for laser hair removal, make sure that you have enough amount of time in order to prevent any kind of mishap.
