June 3rd, 2014 • Posted by Dazzles • Permalink

Brides face a lot of pressure to look their best on their wedding day, and being one of the most memorable days in your life, it's only natural to want to look your most beautiful. A vow of love and a union of families, this special day is well-documented with photos and videos that will inevitably become treasured keepsakes. These keepsakes will sit proudly in pristine frames atop an office desk, mounted on a wall or stored away in a safe spot, before they get passed down to your children and grandchildren. In order to look your best for your big day there are a few things you need to plan out beforehand. It can be stressful trying to work out all the little details, so here's a quick bridal beauty timeline to help ensure you look amazing for your big day.

6 months before the wedding:

  • Beauty starts from the inside out, so make sure to take care of your health, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and eat nutritionally balanced meals.

  • Reserve a free skin consultation, at which time a personalized skin care regimen as well as other treatments will be recommended just for you.

  • Research bridal makeup styles you like in magazines and on the internet.

3 months before the wedding:

Schedule an initial trial run makeup application.

  • Bring in the photos of the bridal makeup styles you liked.
  • Take a few photos from different angles to see if you like the way your features are being enhanced.
  • Keep exercising regularly, drinking lots of water and eating healthy.

1 month before the wedding:

Schedule a second trial run makeup application session.

  • Bring the photos of the previous session to point out what you did and did not like about the makeup style.

  • As before, take a few photos from various angles to make sure you like the way your features are being highlighted.

  • Keep exercising regularly, drinking lots of water and eating healthy.

2 weeks before:

  • Reserve an appointment to get your eyebrows professionally shaped to bring more dimension to your face.

  • Now is also the time to consider lash extensions, tinting and perms.

  • Schedule a facial appointment to ensure you have a glowing complexion on your special day and will contribute to an even makeup application.

  • Reserve a third trail makeup application session, if necessary.

The day before the wedding:

  • Assemble an emergency bridal beauty kit for touchups on your big day.

  • Eat a healthy dinner, drink lots of water and get plenty of rest.

On your wedding day:

  • Keep your dress clean and wear a button down shirt or robe over your wedding dress, while you get your makeup done.
