Walking down the aisle on your wedding day, you want to feel radiant, beautiful, and confident. To ensure your day runs as smoothly as your silk veil, a little prep goes a long way, especially in terms of hair and skin care.

Here are some essential beauty tips to help you prep for the big day:

1. How to Prep Your Hair and Skin for Your Artist on Your Wedding Day

Prepping your hair and skin for your makeup artist and hairstylist is key to looking your best. The night before, shampoo and condition your hair with products tailored for your specific hair type. Avoid heavy conditioners or oils that can weigh hair down. You want your hair to be clean but still have some texture for better styling grip. You will want to arrive with your hair completely dry.

The exceptions – inform your stylist of your inspiration and if you have any of these hair types below for specific beauty prep:

  • If you have textured hair and are wanting a smooth style
  • If you have textured hair and are wanting to embrace your natural curl
  • If you are wanting a fresh blow out

For your skin, a gentle exfoliation followed by a hydrating mask can work wonders, leaving you with a smooth canvas for the makeup artist. However, if you have highly sensitive skin, skip exfoliation on the wedding week to avoid any reactions. Stick to your regular skincare routine, focus on hydration, and get plenty of rest. Avoid sunscreen as it can change the texture of your skin and may reduce the lasting effects of your makeup application. If you have any type of allergies, please come prepared with those to share with your artist so that they are prepared.

2. What To Wear

One detail that’s often overlooked is your getting-ready attire. Opt for a chic button-up shirt or a silk robe. This ensemble won’t disturb your carefully styled hair or your makeup when it’s time to change into your wedding dress. It’s also perfect for those behind-the-scenes photos. Plus, a personalized robe or monogrammed shirt adds an extra special touch to your bridal prep.

3. Bring Your Favorite Lip Color With You

While your makeup artist will have a vast array of products, there’s something to be said for using a lip color that you love and know lasts well on you. Perhaps there’s one you use frequently and know feels comfortable and looks perfect with your skin tone. Bring it along! Also, having your own lipstick on hand allows for touch-ups throughout the event to keep you looking picture-perfect.
