Wedding Day Beauty Quick Fixes

Your big day has arrived and you are all set to walk down the aisle when you find yourself in a pickle. Your hair is done, your make-up looks awesome and you are wearing your dream wedding gown. But then you look down and discover there is a make-up stain on your gown or you have broken a nail. But don’t worry; here are a few quick fixes that will bring a smile back to your face:

Stain Removal:

  • Make-Up Stain– Whatever you do, don’t rub it! Press a dab of Club Soda on the spot, then sprinkle salt on top to soak up the moisture. Let it dry. If a hint of the stain remains, touch up with white chalk or talcum powder.
  • Ink Stain– Apply a touch of hair spray to a cotton swab and rub lightly over the stain. This should remove the stain completely.
  • OiI Stain– Sprinkle some talcum powder on the spot. The powder will absorb the oil. Wait 15 minutes for the moisture to absorb, and then dust powder off with a clean white towel. Repeat if necessary.
  • Blood Stain– Apply a little of your own saliva on the spot and then gently rub it. The acids will break down the stain. This works best when the blood has not yet dried.

Facial Fixes:

  • Puffy Eyes– Apply cold, wet tea bags. This will help tighten the swollen tissue. For puffiness under the eyes, try a small dap of Preparation H. This will shrink the swollen tissue.
  • Red Blemishes- Cover any red blemish with a concealer that is as close to your skin tone as possible.  If the blemish is dark, dab on a concealer with a small brush and then set with matching powder.  If necessary, add a second layer of each.  For the dark blemishes, make sure the concealer is slighlyt lighter than your natural skin tone.
  • Oily Face– Come prepared with an emergency kit containing blotting tissues or handkerchief, loose powder, or powder puff to remove excess oil from your face.

Broken Nail:

  • Apply a drop of fast-bonding glue to the nail break, and position a tiny bit of unused mesh paper from a tea bag on top. Then add another drop of glue. When it is dry, file the paper down until you can’t see or feel the edges, then top with a third and final drop of glue.
