Whether you’re the bride, mother of the bride or just a guest, weddings are always a time to look your best. Professional hair and makeup artists are one way to get picture-ready, but there are also a few tricks you can do ahead of time to feel confident for the big day.
1. A Few Refreshers
Botox and injectable fillers like Juvederm and Restalyne can take care of fine lines and wrinkles. These products are especially helpful in the forehead, crow’s feet, laugh lines and cheek regions of the face. They can restore a youthful appearance, and ensure you look well-rested and carefree throughout the wedding season.
Latisse, a solution that helps you grow thicker, longer eyelashes, is also a great addition to your skincare regimen. While many wedding guests opt for fake lashes nowadays to enhance their appearance in photos, there truly is nothing like the real thing. Hey, if you can grow them yourself, why pay $18 for a set of falsies that won’t even get you through the June weddings?
2. Strategic Enhancements
Everyone wants to look their best on their big day. An impending wedding is a perfect time to take stock of your appearance and determine whether there are any pesky problem areas you would like to treat. This doesn’t have to be an extreme makeover. Rather, a wedding can simply present the motivation you need to finally go through with that rhinoplasty or breast augmentation you’ve been dreaming of since college but have put off for various reasons.
3. A Tightened Appearance
Most brides, significant bridal party members, and wedding guests know they will be photographed to the death by the time the last glass of champagne is consumed. Then there are the engraved photo albums that will commemorate your look for all eternity. With this in mind, many opt for body contouring procedures that will have them feeling confident in the skin they’re in. Procedures like liposuction, tummy tucks, and arm and leg lifts are particularly popular during wedding season for one very good reason: the weather is warm! Warm weather means less material, which means more skin is showing – especially on the dance floor! Brides are particularly keen on body contouring as they have their wedding night to look forward to, not to mention the honeymoon, which is almost always enjoyed on a sandy beach!
