If the thought of being photographed au naturel leaves you cringing, it’s probably time to get serious about a pre-wedding skincare routine. Alistbeauty shares a few tips to get you started. So when your big day arrives, you’ll look and feel gorgeous in your own skin.
1. Get on the right skincare regimen!
Step one is to get an early start on addressing any major skin concerns you may have—whether it’s acne, hyperpigmentation or fine lines—ideally at least six months in advance . Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or aesthetician who can help design a month-by-month regimen to help you reach your skin goals.
2. Invest in professional facials
Facials can be expensive, but making an upfront investment in professional treatments may mean that you can wear less makeup on your wedding day. These services provide a level of deep cleansing and exfoliation that isn’t achievable at home. Regular check-ups with a skin expert will help make necessary tweaks to your treatments and at-home regimen to help you reach your complexion goals. .
3. Get serious about your at-home skincare routine
Taking care of your skin properly every day is the most important contributing factor to achieving healthy skin. Look for cleansers, serums, and creams that are targeted to your skin’s needs and goals—and be diligent about sticking to your routine day and night.
4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
This sounds simple, but it’s the one we tend to overlook the most. “Stay hydrated (inside and out) is going to help your skin stay plump and smooth, alisthbeauty advises, “which means a more youthful complexion and makeup that glides on effortlessly on wedding day,” Pro tips: Drink plenty of water and look for products with hyaluronic acid, which holds 1,000 times its weight in water, like Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel.
5. What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on it
You already know that superfoods like kale, cacao, and blueberries do your body good, but did you know they can do wonders for your skin? What you eat directly affects your hormones and inflammatory skin conditions like acne. Doing your best to eat clean will not only increase your energy and keep your body strong, but it will also keep you and your skin happy too.
Now you are picture and wedding ready!

I have learned over the years that how well your skin is prepped can make or break a makeup application. For a fresh, flawless,smooth complexion start exfoliating once or twice a week a few months leading up to your wedding.

4. Eye Make Up First
My Mentor and alistbeauty team leader Al Fortier taught me this trick years ago!Some find it odd when during an application I go straight to do their eye make up 1st, But it makes sense! If foundation is done then eyes, the artist is often touching the face while applying the eye shadow leaving foundation less than perfect .
5. High Endurance Make Up

6. Applying concealer after foundation
Alistbeauty takes great pride in the detail of our work. Brightening shadows and covering blemishes to create a seamless and flawless application is the cornerstones of an A List application. Applying concealor before foundation causes the intricate work to be wiped away by the foundation brush. Concealer after foundation gives a pristine and enduring application
7. In some instances Less is More in some More is More
The alistbeauty professional always begins with a lighter application and consults with you throughout the experience. Doing this allows us to add to the make up ( darker eye shadow, brighter lips) Until we meet your greatest expectations. It is much easier to add colour than to subtract.
8. Seal the Deal
After the make up application has met and surpassed all your hopes and expectations we applying a finishing powder or sealing spray to ensure staying power.

9. Blot the Oil Away
Avoid touching your face too much or excessive powder application to control oil. Our professionals will take the time and use the Appropriate products to help control shine.Excessive powder application can dull the skin and look cakey . If you feel your is becoming oily use a blotting sheet to lightly remove any oily spots on your face.
