21 Great Bridal Beauty Tips

In the early morning, after rolling out of bed and heading straight to the computer (oh gosh, I am such a geek) I was filtering through my emails and came across one from iVillage. It was all about weddings and lots of yummy links. I found this great article about beauty tips I just had to share!

Look your best with our best wedding day hair and makeup advice.

1. Waterproof It
Choose a mascara that's waterproof; it lasts longer and withstands tears. If you really don't like the look or feel, use one coat of regular mascara, then follow up with a light coat of waterproof mascara.

2. On the Line
Charcoal, navy, or mahogany are your best options for eyeliner. Black or brown may look too severe, especially if your wedding will be held during the daytime and/or outdoors.

3. Lighten Up
Use a white shadow as a highlighter on your brow bone if you have light skin; a warmer light peach or vanilla shade will suit deeper complexions.

4. Give Them Shape
Do contour your eyes, but avoid using color that's too dense (it can detract from your eyes themselves).

5. Shade Your Brows
Define your brows with a pencil or shadow that matches your hair color.

6. Get the Red Out
Pop an eye drop if your eyes look red or tired, but stick with a brand you've used before to avoid unwelcome surprises (irritation or worse!).... read more here

So many great ideas that I had to share. Whether you are doing your own makeup or not, it helps explain why you should use these tips!
