  1. Waxing or tweezing your face within 48 hours of the makeup application.

Makeup won't sit properly on freshly waxed or tweezed skin and the area will be red and sensitive. There is also the risk of having a reaction to the wax and that leading to a breakout or rash. So make sure to book your appointment about 4 days before.


  1. Trying out a new facial or skincare routine too close to your wedding day.

Any time you try a new product on your face, you run the risk of breakouts and irritation, so start treatments at least 2-3 months before the wedding to give your skin time to adjust and you will see better results.


  1. Stay hydrated
  2. The best thing you can do for your appearance is to drink lots of water. Hydration helps your skin stay moisturized and glowing. Makeup will always look better and last longer on skin that is well hydrated.


  1. Pimple popping


It is normal to get some pimples when you're stressed, but popping pimples can lead to infection as well as causing scabs.

Even though it is easy for most makeup artists to cover discoloration (red), trying to conceal the texture of the skin is difficult.

Skin and a good night’s sleep go hand in hand, if you don’t get enough sleep you will start to notice bags or puffiness around your eyes and dull skin. Your skin is busy regenerating itself while you sleep and that means better skin elasticity, a better complexion and of course a better makeup application.
