Be kind to your skin! Drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated.
This is not the time to experiment with new creams, lotions or potions on any part of your body. Use the same trusted brands you've used for years.
If you want to improve the look of your skin start going to a trusted cosmetician at least two months before the wedding, tell her/him when you are getting married and make sure that all treatments are very gentle. No extreme peelings or exfoliations.

If you are far sighted (can’t see up close) – your glasses magnify not only what is in front of you, but also your eyes: make sure your makeup is subtle both in color and in style.
If you are near sighted (can't see far away) – your glasses help you see into a distance, but also make your eyes seem smaller, make sure your makeup is more dramatic. You should use eyeliner and extra coats of mascara to help further emphasize your eyes.
If your eyes are small, think about using a white pencil on the water line above your bottom lashes from the tear duct to the very corner of your eye to give you the illusion of brighter, larger eyes.
Discuss these issues with your makeup artist during the trial session.
If you are not lucky enough to have a makeup artist on call for the entire event, keep the following tips in mind:
Pack the following items inside your take-to-the-venue makeup bag.
To absorb any perspiration and remove the shine from any facial areas: blot the area with a dry, clean tissue. Blot the area, do not wipe it or your makeup will smudge and spread.
Prepare cotton balls dipped lightly in facial powder in talc/baby powder for light touch-ups. (Place these in a small zip-lock baggie.)
Pack a cheap concealer or makeup that matches (exactly!) your makeup shade or use talc/baby powder for mini-touch-ups. (Why cheap? You can forget it or lose it at the venue without worry!)
You can pack a clear or tinted lip gloss, to keep your lips looking hydrated and full.
