Getting hitched and unsure about how to revamp your makeup routine? The editors over at have just the answer.

Tip 1: Just Be You (Well, You Know, the Best Version of You!)

“Your wedding day isn’t the time to experiment with extreme beauty trends. Get a makeup trial a few weeks before your wedding (or if you’re doing it yourself, make sure to experiment a few weeks before) and then take photos with a digital camera to see how the look will appear in pictures. You essentially want a fairly natural look that makes you appear as a better version of yourself.” –Tammy Siu, former beauty director, Us Magazine

Tip 2: Find the Right Foundation

“Most of us have been taught to conceal dark under-eye circles with a yellow-based concealer — I disagree. You want to use a salmon color. Yellow-based concealers are great for covering redness around the face, but salmon will neutralize those bluish-green veins many of us have under our eyes.” –Eve Pearl, celebrity makeup artist

Tip 3: Prep Your Skin Weeks in Advance (Literally — at Least Six Weeks Before Your Wedding Day)

“You want your makeup to be flawless on your wedding day. The trick to that isn’t amazing cosmetics — but amazing skin. I keep mine in check with a strict daily beauty regimen using 3LAB skin-care products. I love their ‘Perfect’ line and start off with their facial wash followed by the cleansing scrub and moisturizer. I’d suggest a regimen like this at least two to three weeks before your wedding so the glow you have is the result of healthy skin, not a stick of bronzer.” –Zandile Blay, market editor, Paper Magazine
