This does not apply to everyone. Every artist has their day of tips.
But JAC Beauty brides to be, PLEASE DON’T:
1) Don’t get semi permanent eye lash extensions
JAC note: If you’ve been following me the past few posts, you will know that I LOVE FALSIES! While I do think that the semi permanent eye lash extensions are awesome day to day, I do not think it’s the way to go on the day of. Reason? I think they are kinda gross. Not everyone knows how to maintain them well so I’ve seen some crusty lashes … EEK saids the germ-o-phob in me. When eyeshadow lands on the lashes, it looks flaky and no matter how hard I try to fan it off, it just looks flaky. The lash extension people warn against using eyeliner and mascara … WHAT?!!? NO EYELINER OR MASCARA?? This is BRIDAL MAKEUP … it’s a must! It’s not easy being a bride! Really … suck it up for 1 day and just add the temporary falsies.
2) Don’t come with dirty hair. PLEASE!!
JAC note: WHO THE HECK STARTED THIS RUMOR?!? BLECH! Why wouldn’t you want to be your absolute freshest for your hubby to be!?! CLICK HERE to see why. It’s best to work with clean hair. Make sure your hair is completely dry of oil and moistures. I usually suggest washing your hair the night before without conditioner or the day of without conditioner just as long as it is completely dry before styling.
3) Don’t get facial hair waxing the few days leading up to your wedding.
JAC note: Who has time the few days leading up to the wedding to sit there and spend 30+ minutes plucking? MAKE TIME! Unless your going to wax your whole face, don’t wax … pluck! Waxing not only get the thicker visible hair but also the peach fuzz. When makeup gets on the 2 different surface, IT IS OBVIOUS. Makeup on smooth surface VS makeup on peach fuzz surface.
SIDE note: I also had a bride who’s armpits were bright red from getting burned by wax!
4) Don’t spray tan!!! If you must, just tanning bed!!
JAC note: I had a few brides that spray tanned this past year & the minute I started blending in the makeup, the tan started rubbing off in chunks. You know when you use an eraser and you get the used slivers of the eraser all over your paper … that’s the way the spray tan started rubbing off. It then left me with an uneven surface so the makeup didn’t look as evenly distributed. For everyday, I think spray tan is great! Heck! C’s done it a few times without getting the oompa loompa effect. But for bridal … stay away from it!
It’s not easy being a bride! How do people do this more than once?!?
