5 Life-Saving Beauty Tips for your Wedding Day!

Published on Sep 28, 2015

The day is FINALLY here!

You're so excited and worried that you couldn't sleep the night before... so horror of all horrors, you wake up looking the worst you've ever been :(

Don't let yourself get into that situation with our 5 life-saving tips to help you get through the day looking the best you can!

1. Depuff sleep-deprived eyes.


Tossed and turned all night? Don't let it show!

According to Grace from Geranium Skin Boutique, all you have to do is get some (caffeinated) green tea bags ready!

Seep two tea bags in a mug of hot water for three to five minutes, then let them cool in the fridge for 20 minutes. Squeeze out excess water, lay down and place the tea bags on your eyes for 15 to 30 minutes.

The caffeine in the green tea can help shrink blood vessels around your eyes, reducing puffiness and dark circles.

2. Fake fuller lips.

If you've always wanted fuller lips, Shiori from SONA Japanese skin studio has a tip for you: Add a few drops of essential peppermint oil to your lip gloss to get instant plumper lips!

As you reapply throughout the day it will give your pout that "just-bitten" lift. It also acts like a breath freshener when you're in a pinch!

That's however not recommended for sensitive skin so alternatives include lip plumpers that contain collagen, hyaluronic acid and/or peptides!

Some of these products include:

  • Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper
  • Urban Decay Lip Junkie Gloss and Revolution Lipstick
  • Josie Maran Natural Volume Lip Gloss
  • Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil

3. Moisturize your hands.

On the day that you make that promise to hold the hands of your SO forever, consider making your hands so soft and supple that he will never ever want to let go of it!

All you have to do is apply hand cream to your hands and coat oil around your cuticle and you are all set to grab on to him forever!

PS. the cuticle oil can make your nails look more radiant as well!

4. Don't forget your beauty emergency kit!

Trust us when we say this will be a lifesaver.

Some things you may want to consider in your beauty emergency kit may include: lip gloss, lip balm, packs of tissue, makeup remover wipes, plenty of bobby pins, double sided tape, safety pins, scissors, razor, hair spray, makeup brushes, hand cream, hair brush, rubber bands, sewing kit and anything else you think you may need!

"Be prepared for what can go wrong so it doesn't ruin your day!" says Sylvia from Act Point Salon.

5. Don't cry off all your beautiful makeup!

Tears will happen, so it's important to weep correctly! Other than using waterproof mascara, you can try to press the tissues in the tear duct and let the tears run into the tissue. This prevents the tears from running down and ruining your beautiful makeup!
