Wedding Beauty Tips

5 Great Tips for Brides before your wedding Day

  1. Make sure you look through pictures for the type of make up you want and bring in a picture. That way the stylist has an idea of what you want.
  2. Come in with a clean face and bring any make up in that you really like, for example foundation, mascara or lipgloss. If there is a mascara that you love, get one in waterproof and bring it to the salon that day. You don’t want raccoon eyes on your special day!!! If you do bring in a foundation make sure it does not have a sunscreen in it, same goes for you moisturizer- it creates a “white face” in the pictures!!
  3. If you want to wear false eyelashes pick a couple different styles and try them on before you come. Bring the ones you like the best. Or if you want to leave it up to your stylist just let them know in advance so they have time to pick some up.
  4. If you are going to get a facial make sure it’s at least 2 weeks before. Facials bring impurities out to the surface so if it’s too close to your wedding day you might have skin irritations that you don’t want!
  5. Drink lots of water that week and get lots of sleep! Try not to drink alcohol the night before, your skin will look so much better!

DO NOT have your face or brows waxed right before your trial or wedding day. Your makeup will not easily blend. 7-10 days should be okay.

Do not pop any pre-wedding blemishess. Instead use Visine to take the red out. Also, be sure to not dry out blemishes, as this makes it more difficult to flawlessly cover the area with makeup.

Please Remember:

Most importantly, drink an exorbitant amount of water before arriving to your Tahoe (high altitude) wedding location.

Exfoliate your lips by using a wash cloth and lip balm after your shower. This will help your lipstick stay on longer and create a smooth surface for application.

Tahoe Wedding Hair and Makeup Information

Are your bridesmaids going to have their hair and makeup done on your wedding day? It’s best to have a consistent and professional look applied by the experts!

  • Purchase some blotting papers to take down shine for photos.
  • Please do not try any new skincare products or get facials/microdermabrasion if you never have before. We want to avoid any reactions within 1 month of wedding date.
  • If you use any eye cream, be sure to use only at night. Creams need your sleep time to absorb fully to work its best during the skin’s rejuvenation process. If you also use an eye product during the day, try serums or rollers. These products absorb fast and provide great results without creasing after makeup application.
  • For the wedding day, every woman in the bridal party should wear loose button-down tops and no bras (they will leave unwanted marks on the skin).
  • Please remember if you or anyone in the bridal party is doing an updo or curls, do not wash your hair the morning of the wedding. For best results hair should be washed the day before and kept free of styling products.
  • Anyone with curly/kinky hair needs to arrive with hair blown straight or let us know in advance if they will need the additional service and time.
  • Pick one or two styles for hairstylists to choose from and keep in mind the more complicated the style, the longer it will take.
  • Clarify with the wedding party prior to wedding day what each person will owe for hair and makeup, so there is no last minute confusion settling the bills.
  • Pack safety pins, needle and thread that matches the dresses, have everyone try the dresses, tuxedos etc…on two days prior to make sure everything fits and there are no broken buttons, zippers, missing items including socks, cuff links and button-hole covers. Remind everyone to make sure they have the right under garments that do not show under gowns.
  • Each member of the bridal party should have their dress and shoes labeled to avoid confusion when getting dressed—this goes for the men too!
  • Wear shoes a few times to break them in (Johnson&Johnson makes great product called Blister Block to help prevent blisters, and it really works so have it on hand).
  • Create an i-pod play list with your favorite music to help you relax and enjoy the day.
  • Pack your jewelry, shoes, perfume, undergarments, something old, something borrowed, and something blue, along with any sentimental items you want to have with you.
  • Plan on eating that morning and afternoon, an empty stomach plus adrenaline equals a fainting spell waiting to happen.
  • On the wedding day, be sure the flowers/bouquets are blotted with towels if they are in water before bridal party picks them up to avoid water marks on dresses.
