Wedding in winter sounds magical, but taking the event indoors gets a little bit tricky and toasty. Though your skin don’t break out around this time of year, your face is prone to patches caused by dryness and direct sunlight. Put on hold your ‘facial’ appointment until you read these simple steps in achieving that supple look on your big day.
Dry winter air and heater triggers dry patches, dull complexion, redness, flaky, increase in age spots, and paper-sensitive skin. The only key to prevent these conditions is prevention. “Don’t wait until your big day! Start 3-6 months before your wedding date.” says Dr. Jovy Eusebio, aesthetician and owner of Potomac Skin Care. Transformation is easy, commitment to achieve a beautiful skin takes a lot of effort. But for immediate moisturization, you can tame flaky skin beside the lips, under the eyes, and jaw lines by ‘dabbing’ on Obagi Hydrate Luxe.
Building the Foundation
Think beyond the I Do’s. There’s no much time for retouch so you better start laying the best makeup foundation to last the whole day. It should be sweat-proof and sheer light. Totalbeauty.com listed the 7 best foundations in the market. Just remember to test it a month before the big day. If allergies occur, visit your skin doctor immediately.
Pink Cheeks and Blush
The key here is to make you look full of life not frosted! The best blush makeup I recommend to all gorgeous women out there is NARS. It offers a range of translucent, natural shades, each with a subtle pink for natural blush undertone, created to highlight the complexion. If you are looking for a substitute that costs under $20, try mineral makeup blush. Mineral makeup blends smoothly on any types of complexions.
