How to Get Luminous Skin on Your Wedding Day

Each bride I have had the pleasure of working with is unique, but one thing they all share in common is that they all want the glowy, “lit from within”, skin. I can’t blame them, I love that kind of look! Let’s talk about my top 3 tips to achieving that bridal glow.

Your makeup will only look as good as your skin looks, so my first tip is to get a skin care routine down that works for you. I recommend starting this routine 4-6 months prior to your wedding date. Please note: I NEVER recommend trying new products 1-4 weeks before your big day, just in case you end up breaking out or having an allergic reaction. If you do end up with a gnarly breakout (it happens), at least you will have some time to heal your skin. As far as skin care, focus on hydration. I recommend using hyaluronic acid, a moisturizer you love, and a facial oil to achieve the glow! I love using Sonia Roselli’s Water Elixir, Waterbalm, and Water Oil on myself and my brides.

My second tip is to drink water! Be sure to stay hydrated (especially if your wedding is outdoors in this North Carolina heat – shew!). Drink lots and loots of water and if it helps, get one of those water bottles with time markers to be sure you drink enough throughout the day.

My last tip is to use cream and liquid products on the day of, and minimal powder. A skilled Makeup Artist will know how to strategically place the powder to help the makeup set and last without taking away the glow, so be sure to do your research when looking at Makeup Artists! If you are doing your own makeup, like I mentioned, try to stick to creams and liquids. This will be the most skin-like and will give a gorgeous glow!
