• Take a picture to see how the makeup looks on film
• Try a new product too close to the wedding—you don’t want big-day breakouts!

Most importantly... take care of yourself! Drink lots of water, eat smart, and get plenty of rest before the big day. And above all, the best way to be a beautiful bride is to smile, smile, smile!
