The sun, humidity, water and tears can all affect your makeup and hair. Here are some easy tips to keep you looking and feeling gorgeous on your wedding day!
Use a Makeup Primer or a Silicone Based Foundation
I love Dermalogica’s SPF 50 Primer. Not only does it blur lines and wrinkles, it adds major protection from harmful UV rays. I love the silky formula as well as the tiny addition of tint to complement every skin tone. Apply using fingers before foundation for flawless skin that won’t budge.
Face Atelier’s Ultra Pro Foundation is my go to every time. The coverage is superior yet it feels like you aren’t wearing makeup at all. Custom shades may be created to match any skin tone. The formula is infused with silicone that is resistant to humidity, tears and even water however cleans off easily with face wash.
Use A Setting Spray
Urban Decay has an amazing setting spray. Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, this clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology. It actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place—even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions! The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or night) without melting, cracking, fading, or settling into fine lines. www.urbandecay.com
Waterproof Mascara is a Must
Covergirl’s 24 Hour Lashblast Mascara will stay put even through swimming. Go ahead, shed those tears with no worries about any smudges. The brush adds gorgeous volume and length to lashes. The formula washes off easily with makeup remover as well.
*Tip: Use the mascara as eyeliner as well. Gently swipe an eyeliner brush along the mascara wand and apply just like you would eye liner. Bonus, it is waterproof.
For Lips and Cheeks Use a Stain First
Benefit cosmetics and their lip and cheek stains are truly amazing. They are available in 4 different shades including Lollitint (an orchid pink), Chacha Tint (peachy coral), Posie Tint (a soft, light pink) and Benetint (a rosy pink). The stains uniquely complement each individual skin tone for whichever shade you choose. The stains may also be layered for a stronger pigment. Use alone or underneath a powder blush and lipstick for extra staying power.
Use a Humidity Resistant Hairspray
Whether you have an up-do or wearing your hair down, keeping tresses frizz free and in its perfect style, using a humidity-resistant hairspray is key. Applying a humidity-resistant mousse before curling hair will not only protect hair from heat, it reduces frizz and holds style for hours.
*Tip: If you have hard to curl hair, add mousse to damp hair the night before. Apply even more prior to styling. For super hold, spray each section before styling as well as afterwards.
Tresemme has an amazing climate control hairspray and mousse. The results will blow you away (not your hair) and the price point is exceptional for such high quality products.
