On the morning of your wedding, skip the lotions, toners or any products that will be between your skin and your makeup before you get your makeup done. Let your makeup artist do their complete skin prep (I DO THIS STEP FOR YOU) - this is optimal for a few reasons...mainly, they know their products and what skin products to use in coordination. This step will help your makeup adhere to your skin better with less chance of slippage when you start to get hot and sweat, because there is a fine line between a sweaty shine and a dewy glow. Be sure to let your makeup artist know about your skin concerns so that they may use additional products if necessary to help achieve the best application. Throughout the day and evening, avoid the temptation to apply too much pressed or loose powder to absorb shine because you will only cake on the powder, so use blotting sheets (oil absorbing papers) which are the best way to eliminate shine and not smudge your makeup. Sometimes even adding the simplest efforts to your routine can help your skin look more luminous:
drinking eight glasses of water daily,
cutting back on caffeine and alcohol consumption,
keeping a gentle and appropriate skincare routine (!),
not stressing out about the little details before your wedding
and getting plenty of rest the week of will help your skin glow and allow your makeup artist to make you into the beautiful blushing bride you dream of!
