If you’re looking for tips on how to look your best on your wedding day, look no further than Robert Jones, international celebrity makeup artist and author of multiple makeup makeover books, including Makeup Makeovers: Weddings. (buy direct) His books are amazing, and give step-by-step instructions on getting the glamorous look done all by yourself.
Robert gives us some tips on the pre-wedding skin care schedule, what you should do at least a month before your wedding, and what you should never do before the big day.
If a Bride has set aside money to get a professional skin care treatment before her wedding day, what treatment do you recommend, and how soon before her wedding should she go?
She should have a microdermabrasion treatment done 3 weeks prior, and then she should get an exfoliating facial one week before her wedding. These treatments will help slough off any dead skin revealing gorgeous fresh new skin.
You’ll want to choose these treatments because exfoliating causes the skin to rejuvenate and renew itself. And by adding in a facial a week before, your skin will get moisturized and balanced.
Not everyone has the funds for a professional treatment. What are some extra steps a bride can do at home so that she looks her best on her big day?
I recommend she go to her local drug store and purchase an at-home microdermabrasion product and start using it at least once a week for 3-4 weeks leading up to the wedding. She’ll have great results without spending a lot of money.
Are there any skin care NO’s! that a Bride should be aware of when she’s planning her pre-wedding skin care schedule?
The biggest no is to make sure she doesn’t change her daily skin care routine before the wedding. Many times it takes skin a period of time to adjust to a new skin care routine; this is not the time to experiment.
The big day has arrived, and no bride wants to have dull skin or at the opposite end, shiny skin. What products do you recommend brides have on hand the day of the wedding?
In order to create the perfect balance of the perfect glow without too much shine you’ll only need a few items.
- The correct moisturizer for your skin type to even out the porosity of your skin.
- Foundation primer it is a product that will keep your skin balanced all night long.
- A very finely milled loose powder, just used in your t-zone, to keep shine under control.
- A shot of bronzer for the added glow.
- Lastly, don’t forget water proof mascara and eye liner to prevent raccoon eyes.
Are there any extra tips you can give to a bride to help make her look her absolute best on her special day?
- Remember definition and color does not have to mean dark, it is just about the right color choices.
- A beautiful flush of color on the apples of your cheeks always look healthy, fresh and glamorous.
- Lashes, lashes, lashes are the most important part of defining your eyes.
- And add a touch of shimmer on your lid for that fresh, never over-done, glamorous look.
