The Underrated Blotting Paper

Bridal look

If you’re a bride-to-be, you’re probably already tired and sweating. Wedding preparations and shopping can take a toll on your daily routine.

Unfortunately, on your D-day, the heavy bridal attire and big wedding party will also exert you. With this, your wedding makeup looks might become cakey. 

A blotting paper is a key to matte-finished bridal makeup. Blotting papers are a savior whether you’re sweating heavily or need some touch-ups.

Screen Yourself from the Sun

Sunscreen is a must whether you’re having a ceremony in the morning or later at night. 

Sun rays are present round the clock, and the weather doesn’t matter either. The UVA and UVB rays will be there for the most part, making your skin appear dull and tired. Applying sunscreen is not a quick fix like some of the products above, but with consistent usage, you will notice an improvement in the texture of your skin in the weeks leading up to your wedding.

A sunscreen rich in SPF will help maintain that healthy and natural bridal makeup look. Ensure you use sunscreen every time you step out of your house – including on your wedding day.
