Pre-Wedding Skincare for Flawless Makeup on Your Big Day IN NYC

To achieve the perfect wedding makeup, taking care of your skin before the big day is crucial. However, excessive skincare routines can actually harm your skin, so simple at-home skincare two weeks before the wedding is the way to go.


  • 1. Exfoliation is an essential step in preparing your skin for your wedding day makeup. By removing dead skin cells, you'll achieve a smoother, more even complexion that is the perfect canvas for your makeup. When selecting an exfoliation product, opt for a gentle, non-irritating formula that won't cause any redness or inflammation. AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) are a popular choice for exfoliation as they work to dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin texture. Incorporating an AHA product into your skincare routine two weeks before the wedding can help to give your skin that extra glow and radiance on your special day.


  • 2. Hydration is essential for achieving healthy, radiant skin on your wedding day. In addition to drinking plenty of water, incorporating a daily moisturizing mask into your skincare routine can help to ensure that your skin is well-hydrated and ready for your big day. However, don't forget to hydrate your skin during the day as well! Applying a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer and a broad-spectrum sunscreen each morning is key to protecting your skin from environmental stressors and keeping it looking fresh and healthy. Remember, this is a basic skincare step that should never be overlooked if you want your makeup to look flawless on your big day.

  • 3. Stress is a big no-no when it comes to wedding preparation, so make sure to practice self-care and relaxation techniques such as meditation to alleviate any pre-wedding jitters. Inner beauty is just as important as outer beauty, so take the time to focus on your mental well-being as well.


  • 4. Lastly, communication with your wedding makeup artist is key to achieving your desired look. By sharing your skincare routine and discussing your preferred makeup style, your artist can work with you to create the perfect look for your special day.
