Checklist for Looking Beautiful

The prime elements to consider for looking good on any occasion are skin, hair, face, teeth, hands, make-up, hairstyle, body, stress and overall health. As a bride-to-be, you should start concentrating on all these elements well in advance, say 6 months prior to the wedding date. You need to keep a close watch on all these things as it is very important that you look healthy and beautiful and not stressed and washed out on your wedding day.

Plan your beauty regime carefully with your doctor, dietitian, hairstylist and make-up artist. Don't shy away from hiring these people especially for your wedding preparation. After all, you are working tirelessly to make your wedding perfect. You deserve some pampering.

If you are six to seven months away from your wedding and you are addressing invitations and choosing your wedding dresses, then you should take out some time to work on your beauty regimen. Making an investment now will give big returns on your wedding day.

Prepare a checklist for looking beautiful on your wedding day. This should include hair, skin, health, diet, work-out and other things that you should do to improve your overall health. Always remember, you will look beautiful if you feel beautiful.

Skin Care:

Skin is an important part of your body. It shows the condition of your health. If you are stressed out, your skin will definitely show it and if you are feeling super-fit, your skin will glow like anything. If you have a good skin, you will naturally look beautiful. Therefore, it is very important to pamper your skin.

bridal wedding tips

Following a nutritive diet, increasing water intake to 8 - 10 glasses daily and working out to have long term benefits and this will certainly do good for your skin. Consult a skincare expert and start nourishing your skin with moisturizer, cleanser and other recommended treatments. Get your face scrubbed and cleansed once in a while. Use some toner and moisturizer to nourish the skin.

Do not sleep with your make-up on, not even the moisturizer or the base that you have applied while going out. Cleanse your skin every night with a cleansing lotion and a cotton ball. This will also help you avoid the dark circles.

Always use a sunscreen when you go out in the sun. use glares and scarves and cover your hands so that they don't get tanned and look of different color than the face.

Hair care:

Start a haircare regimen along with the skincare treatment. If your hair is dry, use moisturizer based shampoo. Avoid washing hair frequently.

Use good haircare products. Make an appointment with a hairdresser and decide on the length and the style that you want your hair to be. If you are planning to grow your hair, make sure they don't look out of shape on the big day. It is safe to go for a hairstyle that can be done at the present length of your hair. Start conditioning treatment to achieve that natural shine and a healthy look.


Many brides hire a professional makeup artist for their wedding day. It is better to go for a professional make-up artist as the camera often makes you look like you are wearing a smaller amount of makeup and a professional make-up artist knows the exact amount to apply so that it looks good into the photographs and videos.

Make sure you go for the trial session so that you get the desired look and feel comfortable carrying the make-up. Hiring a professional always helps. If you have black heads, white heads, blemishes, freckles, moles, dark circles, wrinkles, crow feet or any other skin problem, the make-up artist will be able to conceal it beautifully and you need not worry about looking like your worst nightmare on your wedding day.

Exercise Regime:

It is hard to be good-looking when you are stressed out. Exercise, yoga, and other physical activities will assist you to develop strength, energy, and relieve tension. It's recommended to consult doctor for proper diet plan.

Go for a stable, planned work out. Don't overdo it or you might end up with a sprained back or a swollen muscle. A good exercise regime helps to release 'happy hormones', which are responsible for the good mood and increased stamina throughout the exhausting wedding planning process.
