Being in a wedding taught me a lot of things. Read:
Drinking a glass of champagne on an empty stomach before the ceremony will not end well.
I almost passed out. I was that bridesmaid.
Luckily, my parents were sitting in the pew behind me, and my mom came to the rescue with a bottle of water, while I used my dad’s program as a fan.
The ugly cry comes out when you least expect it (my girl Oprah would understand).
Thank you, Jordan, for capturing me in all of my glory.
I’m pretty sure I cried more than the bride did. Go figure.
My drink of choice is vodka + cranberry.
Although I’m pretty sure they were really weak, because
I’m not even sure how many I had, and I still felt okay the next day.
Monistat Chafing Gel miraculously doubles as a makeup primer.
Google it. Seriously. You’ll get more comments about makeup than what it’s actually supposed to be used for (and no, I’m not going there).
My cousin and I were discussing makeup the night before the wedding, when she gave away this little secret. Monistat Chafing Gel has the exact same ingredients as Smashbox Photofinish Primer, and it’s a
hella whole lot cheaper. Who woulda thought?
In hopes of long-lasting makeup, I snagged Lauren’s tube to use the morning of the wedding. All I had to do was put a small dab on my finger, rub it in like I would moisturizer, wait a minute or two, and then apply my makeup as usual. I even used it on my eyelids, and after 8 hours, my eye makeup still wasn’t sliding around on my face (because that’s always a cute look…) like it usually does after a few hours.
There you go, that is my beauty tip for the day :). Share it with all of your friends…or don’t 😉 (but really, do).
If you’ve been in a wedding, did you learn anything that you didn’t know before?
Do you have any “secret” beauty tips?
