Whether it’d be a hometown or destination-based wedding ceremony, every bride wants to look flawless and beautiful on their big day. No doubt, it takes a lot of prepping and primping. When you’re faced with a new element such as extreme humidity (you’ll notice this right away when you travel to resort destinations), beauty regimes take on a completely new meaning.
No doubt, destination weddings can be a tricky affair when it comes to hair and make-up!
We’ve got these tips to keep you looking your best for the Big day:
[icon name=icon-heart] Less is More
Skip the heavy foundation and powder, unless you want to look like a liquefied mannequin for your wedding. The heat and humidity in many destinations have the tendency to melt cakey and heavy products. It’s better to keep your face make-up light and minimal! Opt for an SPF-based product rather than moisturizer and use primers to ensure that your make-up stays put.
[icon name=icon-heart] Use these if you’re looking for some color
If you want a little pop of color, cheek stains are a better alternative to blushes, as the color lasts all day. A pinch of bronzer is all you need if you’re looking to add a bit of glow (of course, the humidity and sun will already give you a natural dewy finish)!
[icon name=icon-heart] Water-proof Everything
Lastly, you can’t ever go water-proof eyeliner and mascara. Even if you swear you never cry on occasions like weddings, water-proof based products will keep you from looking like a racoon when you’re under the hot Caribbean sun.
Regardless of whatever look you are going for, its guaranteed that you will look beautiful and stunning on your big day!
