You’re on your honeymoon to see the sights and celebrate. Honeymoon beauty and skincare – along with hydration, proper nutrition, and even sleep – are far down the list of priorities. Sun, salt, airline air and alcohol take their toll on your complexion, and the results can be anything but pretty. Keep that newlywed glow and adopt a honeymoon beauty routine with these carry-on-friendly, easy-to-use products.
Makeup for a bride’s big day is a vital part of the prep, and nailing the look she wants comes down to a good base. A good foundation will give you a flawless finish and last through all the photos, stress and celebration. Yet despite the plethora of makeup brands available, it can be frustrating to find your match without mixing since many brands offer only 10-15 shades. What about those of us who fall outside this spectrum or in between these shades? No one wants to look back at wedding photos and realize your face doesn’t quite match the rest of you. With these brands’ wide foundation shade range, you can be sure to find your match, for a stunning bridal glow. Click here to read the rest of this post »
Whether you’re packing your own bridal bag (aka the wedding-day emergency kit) or having your MOH get one ready for you, you’ll want to make sure not to leave out a single wedding-day essential! You can go ahead and start getting your bridal must-haves ready a month before the big day, using our handy list of 10 wedding-day essentials as your guide:
Snacks. You may not feel hungry with all the excitement surrounding you on your wedding day, but you’re going to need energy for this major celebration. Nuts or granola bars are a great source of protein, and will keep for months before your big day.
Toothbrush and toothpaste. Buy a travel size of each to keep in your bag. You wouldn’t want to say your “I do” with anything less than fresh breath.
A garment steamer. If you have a handheld one on hand you’re already winning! If not, get one. It’s an essential tool for smoothing out stubborn gown wrinkles, and can be used for last-minute clothing touch-ups for years to come!
Bobby pins and hair ties. There are going to be lots of girls. Someone is going to need them, right?
Sewing kit. A popped button or dropped hem is never good news. Having needle, thread and hem tape handy will save the day in a pinch.
Mints, not gum. You don’t want to be captured on film chomping away like it’s nobody’s business, after all.
Band-Aids. You’ll be wearing your bridal heels for hours. Even if you’ve made a pre-wedding effort to break them in, you’ll almost certainly have a few blisters or sore spots as the night progresses.
Nail polish. Be sure to pack a bottle of your wedding-day nail color. Your bridesmaids should do the same. Chipped nails are a definite no-no in those detail shots your photographer is going to take!
Lipstick & lip liner. You’ll be kissing your freshly minted spouse all night. Make sure your lip color is locked in or refreshed for photos.
Blotting papers. A quick press to absorb any oil or sweat that may have snuck out to your skin’s surface, followed by sweep of translucent powder, will have you looking fresh and shine-free, in person, and in pix!
