Wedding day hair and makeup decisions consume brides-to-be. However, in addition, there are five bridal beauty dilemmas that also take their place on the “must solve” list. These five essential matters can make or break beauty plans – or so you think. Ladies, even if the wedding is in three days, we can solve these lingering, all-consuming issues so they don’t spoil your wedding pictures. No sweat!
Number One: A bride’s number one desire on her wedding day is long, healthy hair. Either out of necessity for up-dos or a desire for a youthful romantic look. Brides, stop Google searching “how to grow your hair faster” because I have an answer!
3 Day Beauty Fix: Clip In Hair Extensions.
Before you shake your head at the thought of Britney’s horrendous extensions – call your stylist. On the day of your wedding you can instantly have long, gorgeous, full hair. Clip-in extensions add extra fullness and length. Renting them will cost around $50 in addition to your day of services. But, if you are losing sleep (and precious hair) try them on at your hair trial. I guarantee you are going to love them!
Number Two. Teeth whitening is one of those beauty rituals we all realize needs to be tended to when a picture of coffee and wine stained teeth shows up on Facebook. Don’t spend tons of money on professional teeth whitening by your dentist. Stick to basic teeth maintenance at home with a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash.
3 Day Beauty Fix: Splurge on the Crest 3D white kit.
The kit comes with 14 days of teeth whitening, with results in as little as 3 days! Split it with your husband to be and you’ll both be sparkling white on your wedding day.
Number Three. Longer lashes are another concern for brides with fine hair. Products like Latisse fill shopping baskets everywhere. However, if you are a blue eyed bride, do you really want to take a chance on losing your gorgeous eye pigment? No way!
3 Day Beauty Fix: Fake Lashes
Here’s the skinny on fake lashes. They are so much more amazing than the $0.99 ones you purchased when you were ten. These lashes are individually placed on your lash line. They look completely natural and are comfortable. Individual lashes achieve the same affect in ten minutes, as six months of expensive products. And, you don’t have to risk your signature eye color to have them.
Number Four. Breakouts are bound to happen. The amount of stress you are putting on your body is enormous. She may fight back with a big fat zit. Resist the urge to pop it. There is not much you can do about it except fight the red. Get a good acne gel at the drugstore and apply as often as it allows you too. Don’t over apply. Worse than a huge zit, is a dry spot.
3 Day Beauty Fix: Professional Day Off Make Up Application
Mention the blemish to your make-up artist the morning of the wedding and she will cover it up so no-one can see it. Sit back and let her do a magic disappearing act.
Number Five. Nails are one item that brides-to-be start worrying over early in the engagement. Let’s be honest – as soon as the ring is locked and loaded on the designated finger we are hitting the nail salon! You can splurge on weekly cuticle trimmings and polish, however, for budget brides this might get cut from the beauty budget.
3 Day Beauty Fix: Acrylic Nails
Up to a week before the wedding, head to your nail salon and get a fake pair of nails applied. The key to making them look real is to keep the length realistic and the edges rounded. Remember to pack hand lotion to keep your cuticles fresh and soft all day.
There you have it ladies – sure you can prep for the entire 12 months of your engagement, but just remember…it’s never too late to call in the professionals.
