What do I do if I wake up with a massive zit?

This is the ultimate bridal nightmare, so ensure you try to reduce the redness and shrink the blemish! If you have a little time dab on some minty toothpaste and leave it on for as long as you can.  Then cover with concealer and matte it down with a little powder.  But the best solution would be to have your dermatologist on speed-dial! She or he can inject the blemish with cortisone which will shrink it instantly.

 What do I do if I have puffy eyes?

Chill out and relax for about 10 minutes with soothing gel eye mask. Or the frozen spoon trick could do it if you have been losing sleep over your wedding. While you sip on a refreshing glass of cleansing lemon water, place two metal teaspoons in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Once they are frosty apply them on your eyelids for a few minutes! No teaspoons close by? Wrap up a couple of ice cubes in paper towel and lay them to your lids instead.

What do I do if I have frizzy and pouf-y on the big day?

Get your hair under control the day before your wedding by getting a blowout if you have wavy or thick hair.  This will give your scalp and hair the time it needs to release their natural oils.  Although, if you’ve got fine hair, wash it and have it styled the morning of your wedding.

What do I do if my mascara runs?

It is completely natural to shed a few tear and chances are your mascara will run, especially if it’s not water resistant.  So ensure you have your concealer, foundation and if you use it, setting powder close by to touch up under your eyes. A damp cotton bud will remove the mascara if it’s being stubborn a bit of grease like Vaseline will get it right off. Opt for waterproof mascara or eyelash extensions.

 What do I do if I chip a nail?

Plan ahead and chose the greatest thing to have happen to bridal nails, gel nails! They are the perfect choice for your wedding and honeymoon. Book your manicure only a day or two before you tie-the-knot to prevent any wear and tear. If you favor a classic manicure and it chips, don’t freak-out.  Just ensure you’ve got a nail clipper and bottle of the nail polish shade your rocking in your wedding day emergency kit.
