Focus on flawless skin and blushing cheeks. How do you get flawless skin? Look for products that enhance your natural skin. Know your skin type and use products accordingly that support your type. Be prepared. If you are a crybaby make sure to use waterproof products. Most importantly have fun with your make-up and enjoy yourself!
1 & 2 Start using a fabulous skin care line at least a month before the wedding to make sure your skin does not react negatively. Your skin is an ecosystem and it usually takes two weeks to get used to a product. My favorites are AmorePacific Treatment Cleansing Oil Face & Eyes ($50 us.amorepacific.com) AmorePacific Future Response Age Defense Serum ($160)
3 Hide any dark circles with MAC Matchmaster Concealer ($21 maccosmetics.com) which has a natural finish and buildable coverage.
4 Exfoliating your lips can prevent your lipstick from caking and will ensure a beautiful smooth application of color or bare lip. The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ ($24 Nordstroms.com)
5 Get those feet ready for dancing and heels with Amope Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electric Foot File with Diamond Crystals ($38 walmart.com) This special treat will make even the most callused feet smile.
6 The groom needs a good skincare device too! Clarisonic Alpha Fit Sonic Cleansing Cleansing Engineered for Men’s Skin ($189 clarisonic.com) comes with two settings; Clean-shaven: cleans and preps skin, for a closer, smother shave and Bearded: deep cleans without tugging for a more comfortable cleanse. This kit also includes a men’s cleanser.
7 Foreo Luna 2 is a skin care device using T-sonic pulsations made from soft silicone which is non-porous and doesn’t harbor grime or bacteria. A bonus is the back of the Luna device channels low frequency pulsations that can be used directly on wrinkle-prone areas to help diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
8 Need to have your teeth camera ready? Look to Luster Premium White Smile Illuminator Instant Whitening Kit ($18 lusterpremiumwhite.com) to brighten up your beautiful smile.
9 Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque ($46 dermalogica.com) is an all-in-one treatment mask that detoxifies, brightens and exfoliates skin for a flawless result in just one use.
10 Color your cheeks sexy with a powder blush that looks great on all skin tones. Nars Orgasm ($30 narscosmetics.com)
