Whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid, the mother of the bride, or even just a guest, a wedding is a good time to change up your normal beauty routine and try something new. However, you don’t want to feel uncomfortable in your own skin come wedding day. Finding a balance between stepping out of your comfort zone and still feeling confident and beautiful can be difficult, but it will pay off on wedding day. Take JBB’s tips for stepping out of your beauty comfort zone in time for the wedding coming up in your life.
1. Make sure you’re healthy.
If you’re feeling good in both body and mind, your inner beauty will be able to shine through. Be sure to maintain a healthy diet and stay active. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Remember to drink enough water and moisturize your skin. When your body is healthy, your skin is clear and glowing, and you’re well-rested, you’ll feel confident enough to try something new!
2. Start small.
It may be uncomfortable to change everything at once, so try to take small steps out of your comfort zone. If you’re not sure how to wear lipstick, pick a natural color to try first. If you never wear eyeliner, try out different application techniques until you find what works for your eyes. By starting small and experimenting before the wedding, you’ll know what changes you are comfortable with by the time the big day comes. Plus you’ll look beautiful and fresh!
3. Don’t be afraid of color.
One of the easiest ways to break your routine is by adding a little color. Start small, in your everyday life. Try a seasonal lip color or even just a brighter nail polish (if you’re anything like my mom, you’ve been using the same color for years!). By the time the wedding comes around, you’ll be comfortable with adding a pop of color to your look!
