Bridal Makeup: Look Pretty, Feel Pretty
Weddings are stressful.

A lot of planning and investment goes into the big event, and there’s a lot of pressure about it being a perfectly magical day. On top of it all, the day will be commemorated with photos. If you look great, you’ll feel much better. Having a plan in place for your hair and makeup can decrease your wedding day stress and give you the security of having great photos of the big event.

For stress-related breakouts at wedding time, calamine lotion will sooth and cover the spot. You can also take an anti-inflammatory. Be sure you moisturize your skin. You can use a concealer over the spot once it's been treated.

Remember that less is more for bridal makeup. You want to look your best. While you can do it yourself, it's best to hire a professional. It alleviates the stress of perfecting your look before saying "I do." You can spend an hour being pampered by the makeup artist, giving you a break from rushing around to create wedding magic.

Makeup artist Vivienne Vermuth has these additional tips for brides:

  • Use a waterproofing setting spray: Ben Nye Final Seal, Boscia White Charcoal Spray (for oily skin).
  • Use waterproof mascara: Maybelline green and pink tube, never fails.
  • Try out your look several times before the big day, and write down your list of colors. Test new foundations at local stores by asking for samples. Wear them all day.
  • Get invasive spa treatments done at least 5-7 days in advance (extractions, peels, etc.) so skin has time to heal.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Skin needs lots of water to look plump and firm.
  • Resist the urge for stiletto nails, you run the chance of scratching your face in your sleep or your husbands. Plus they can snag delicate dress fabric or overall be a hassle.
Listen in as Vivienne shares how to look and feel great on your wedding day.
