In short, it can be tiring not just physically but mentally and emotionally. So to help you prepare before your big day, we have made sure to list the best tips you can follow to look stunning for your events. Take a look at this guide and see if it can help you.
Tips on How to Look Stunning on Your Events:
Create a Workout Routine. It’s normal for people to exercise before their big day comes. This is to help them keep their shape and their body physically ready for their event. This is indeed a nice way to start your mornings.
Workouts aren’t just good for your body, they can also help you have a clean and peaceful state of mind. It can help you prepare yourself mentally while also keeping your body ready for all the preparations.
Keep Your Teeth Healthy and White. Regularly brushing can keep cavities away. This can also help your teeth maintain their pearly white appearance. During our big day, we tend to smile a lot, right? I mean, it’s supposed to be a fun day that is all about us so we need to make sure our teeth are pearly white so we can smile with our guests without getting embarrassed. There are also many great whitening products out there if you need an extra boost.
This also makes sure that our teeth look their best when captured in front of the cameras.
Healthy Skin. Our skin is the empty canvas where our makeup is applied during our event. To keep this beautiful canvas healthy and smooth, taking care of our facial skin is a must-do.
There are so many methods that can help you have healthier and smoother skin. If you already have a skincare routine that you are following, and it's working, keep on doing it to maintain your flawless features.
If you don’t have any specific routine, better start now. Then you'll have glowing and vibrant skin when your big day comes. Exfoliating your skin about a week before, then the morning of the big event is vital! It will help smooth out any dry areas and your foundation, and makeup artist, will love you for it. Also, drink lots of water. This will help to avoid dry skin. Refrain from doing a mask, it will bring all the toxins (i.e. acne) to the surface. Do this at least two weeks prior.
Sleep on Time! I know that waiting for our big day can keep you up almost every night, especially if your body knows that the countdown is slowly starting to get smaller.
Keep in mind that staying up late may cause your skin to be dry, or worse, dark circles under your eyes – which isn’t a good look for any event.
So to keep yourself from staying up late establish a sleeping routine that can help you fall asleep faster and more soundlessly.
You can drink a glass of milk, listen to mellow music to make you feel relaxed. Having a shower and brushing your teeth earlier than you usually di also helps to create a subconscious thought that bed time is soon. Meditation is also a fantastic way to help you to drift off effortlessly and awake refreshed. Reading is also an amazing way to not only make your eyes feel tired but it helps to distract you from over-thinking things.
Please, no screen time before bed! That's definitely not a sleep enhancer, in fact it has the opposite effect.
Try on your hair and makeup. You need to be prepared, and that includes your hair and makeup.
Of course, you need to look gorgeous during your special event. To keep from having makeup or other wardrobe malfunctions, it’s best to talk to the makeup artist/hair stylist you have hired and see if you can book a trial. This also helps you to decide if you want some changes, and to establish colour schemes and how your hair will look on the day.
There are so many steps you can take to help yourself prepare for your big day. So we hope that this small guide has helped you, not just physically, but also mentally, to keep yourself looking as stunning as possible in preparation.
