Get ready for your wedding day with some beauty basics that won't let you down. In the July/August issue of Bridal Guide magazine, there is a list of 34 do's and don'ts for the bride's face, hair, skin and nails. Here are six:
-- Do apply foundation with a dry sponge, then set with a powder puff for ideal coverage.
-- Don't be eye-shadow shy. Try just a hint of color in a subtle shade -- and don't forget the waterproof mascara.
-- Do use a lip liner but only one shade darker than your lipstick and then blend into your lip color to avoid the look of an outline mouth.
-- Don't think of trying a new hair color too close to our wedding day. Give yourself plenty of time; at least six months before, so you can fine-tune your hairdo.
-- Do get a pedicure and manicure the day before your wedding. It will be one less thing to worry about on your wedding day, and you'll look great for the rehearsal dinner.
-- Don't skimp on sleep. Snooze with your head elevated to keep away bags -- fluid around the eyes that follows gravity.
