Don’t Forget About Your Face!

When a bride-to-be begins planning out her look for her big day, what does she focus most on? Her dress usually comes first, followed by her shoes and her hairstyle. But what about her face? Are you thinking about your face, which will be the most photographed of anything from dawn to dusk?

You might be wondering what more there is to think about aside from planning out your makeup. If you are that low-maintenance, I commend you. But let me give you some insight into the other aspects of your lovely face you need to be thinking about before the main event.

Many brides decide to get a facial to freshen up their complexion and spend some time relaxing. However, some make the mistake of scheduling it only one or two days before the wedding.

I can tell you that this does not give enough time for the facial to work its magic. It can take several days for the dead skin to slough off and for special products to take effect. Instead, move your appointment to about a week before. That should give you enough time.

You are going to be smiling an awful lot for many, many cameras (to the point where your face is sore at the end of the day), so contact your dentist in Somerville, NJ to get a quote for a whitening session.

Sure, you could try to whiten at home with over-the-counter methods, but you won’t be able to achieve the same dazzling results you could get from sitting for a single hour in the dentist’s chair. And, as every bride-to-be knows, the less time you can spend doing a single task, the better. You will thank yourself when the pictures come back.

If you have short eyelashes that take plenty of coaxing when you’re trying to go glam, you may want to invest in eyelash extensions. I got these for my wedding, and I was glad I did in the long run.

Make sure that you choose a reputable esthetician to do them for you, as they can be a disaster when done wrong. Check with the Better Business Bureau if you aren’t sure about making an appointment with someone. They should let you know about complaints lodged against a particular esthetician.

Ask your makeup artist about airbrushing. Airbrushed foundation gives a flawless look that lasts all day long, which you will definitely need. It also feels lightweight and smudges less, meaning you won’t have to worry as much about running off for touch-ups, which will keep you away from your guests–and your new spouse. SABUNG AYAM
