Beauty: Kit & Caboodle
Put together your own bag of tricks for day-of emergencies.
Itâ€™s your wedding day and nothing can rain on your paradeâ€”well, except perhaps an errant hemline or flyaway hair. Have your mom or maid of honor pack an emergency beauty kit to keep you looking picture perfect.
Itâ€™s a given that youâ€™ll need your cosmetics for touch-ups, but donâ€™t forget some other save-the-day essentials. Pack effects like hair spray, bobby pins, Q-Tips, makeup remover, deodorant, tissues, breath freshener, nail files, extra earring backs, eye drops, clear nail polish (a sure-fire fix for stocking runs), and hand lotion.
Youâ€™ve planned for perfection, so donâ€™t let a lipstick stain or static cling stand between you and your dream. White chalk will cover almost any blemish on your gown, and anti-static spray can smooth a skirt in seconds. Safety pins, Shout Wipes, a lint roller, double-stick tape, and a mini sewing kit are all good ideas.
Everyone knows how stressed a bride can get, but donâ€™t let nerves wreak havoc on your well-being. Along with bottled water to stay hydrated and any specific medication you may be taking, your kit should include Immodium A.D., aspirin or Tylenol, cold/allergy medicine, smelling salts, and antacid tablets.
