Getting ready the days before your wedding day and on your wedding day takes preparation.
During wedding season and for that unexpected impromptu wedding I usually do the bride, the groom (yes you read right) or the the entire bridal party and leave once the ceremony begins. On occasion when money is no object I have been asked and hired to stay the entire time of the wedding.
Because you asked here are a few things I like to bring and use. Some items are JUST IN CASE. Think about stocking a cosmetic tote with some of these the day of your wedding for you the bride,mom,mom-in-laws and bridesmaids too.
AFTER the hair is styled and and makeup done…Touch ups are important and so is that unexpected need or emergency. So, before you go down that aisle…
Here are a few beauty products and extras you will need:
👄A rosewater spray to refresh the skin great for end of makeup or a pick me up if the skin is outdoors or on the beach. Refreshing!
👄Lip stain lipstick in China Doll…I use it on almost all my brides before I apply their fav’ lipstick. Makes any lipstick last longer and stains the lips with a moist rosy glow.
👄And high clear shine lip gloss for a sexy pout! And a lip conditioner for HIM.
👄Gleam by celebrity makeup artist Melanie Mills. May be used on eye area, face, the decolette, tummy, shoulders or down the legs. You never know where you may want to glow and Gleam! .
👄Rice Powder to set makeup especially in the T-zone where you are the shiniest.
AND Powder papers to blot oil and powder touch up the face at the same time before you go down the aisle with style. Guys love them too.
👄Perfume, cologne or a delicious lotion along with deodorant.
👄A mini brush I love the Wet Brush brand.
👄Blinc Brand mascara water 💦 and sweat resistant.
👄 Hairspray and styling gel
👄Clothes pin or safety pin for any fashion issues.
👄Mini sewing kit and safety pins
👄Aspirin or ibuprofen.
👄Tums or Alka-Seltzer just in case.
👄 AND disposable lip brush, powder brush etc.
As you can see once your makeup is done and your hair is styled you still may be in need of the items on the above list.
What I have learned being in the business of beauty is… You can never be too prepared.
LOVE ❤️ still is in the air. Some people are getting married. Some engaged. And some people are postponing their date due to the virus.
But I have HOPE and see weddings in the future. Maybe with a glam white face cover encrusted with pearls or diamonds.
“I Do’s” will be said and our beautiful world 🌎 will go on.
