Summer weddings can present some interesting beauty challenges. The heat and humidity can lead to frizzy hair and shiny skin – two things no bride wants to deal with. Even if your wedding is held entirely indoors, the warm sunny weather in the months leading up to your wedding can result in sunburns and dehydration that make difficult work for your wedding day beauty team. Thankfully, the experts who have prepped many a summer bride come armed with tips and preparations to leave you looking radiant on your big day.
Here are a few of their big ideas:
First, the preparation. In the months leading up to your wedding, hydration is key. Hot weather can leave skin dry and blotchy, so drinking lots of water and making generous use of a lightweight moisturizer (preferably one with an SPF of 15+) are recommended.
On the day of your wedding, how your makeup is applied can make a big difference in helping you look lovely. Choosing summery tones like peach and coral help you look fresh, while a mineral foundation finished with a cool mist of water provide a finished look that’s not heavy or cakey.
Your hair will need some extra help too. Sporting a looser, less fussy style prepped with a de-frizzing agent works beautifully for summer weddings.
