Wedding Beauty Tips: Looking Your Best on Your Wedding Day

Wedding Beauty Regime

All brides want to look fresh, radiant and beautiful on their wedding day. Looking great takes effort and does not happen overnight. So it is necessary to make the effort to take care of yourself well before your wedding day. Here are some tips to help you do just that!

Soft and Smooth Lips

Soft and supple lips can make a person look very attractive. A smear of Vaseline or honey on your lips at night will give them the soft and supple look the next day. Once a week, gently brush your lips using a toothbrush and warm water. Do this in a circular motion. Brushing your lips will help remove dead cells and make them softer. Alternatively, you can buy a lip scrub.


Taking Care of Your Feet

After a long tiring day, soak your feet in a basin of warm water mixed with a handful of fragrant bath salts. After 10 minutes, wash your feet (using a simple soap and water wash is sufficient). It will make you feel better, refreshed.

Liberally apply Vaseline (or a similar cream) to your feet and use a soak before you go to bed. In the morning, the skin on your feet will be soft and moist.

Once a week, take a foot filer and scrub your heels. Using a toothpick, clean the edges and grooves around your toenails to remove any dirt that has accumulated. Apply cold cream or moisturiser before winding up. This will make the skin soft and prevent people from running away at the sight of your feet!

Eyes

Eyes are the windows to the soul. The area around your eyes is very sensitive and requires special attention. Using eye cream is necessary as the area around the eyes is usually the first to get wrinkles. Remember to treat the area very gently; never rub too hard around the eyes.

Black circles and wrinkles can be prevented by applying vitamin A or retinol-enriched eye cream. Vitamin A repairs the skin and makes it look younger. Creams containing vitamin C are also good as they can stimulate the growth of collagen and thus battle early signs of aging. For tired or puffy eyes, place a cotton pad soaked in chilled rose water across your brow and over your eyes. Also, keep thin slices of cucumber ready in the refrigerator for placing over your eyes.

Applying pure castor oil to your eyebrows and lashes, particularly those who have scanty growth, will make them grow thicker and longer.

How to Get Your Man To Propose to You

We all know about a certain segment of the male species that are afraid to take on the all-important step in their romantic relationships towards marriage. For our Indian readers, the 2006 Bollywood movie, Pyar Ke Side Effects, tells the story of one Indian man's issues with fear of commitment and how he eventually resolved it. In his case, it took a break-up of his relationship for him to finally realise what he was missing out on. As Bollywood movies, go this one of course had a happy ending!

Now back to reality. A man can be in love with his girlfriend, but still not be willing to take the ultimate step of proposing marriage to her. There are multiple reasons why this can be so - of course, fear of commitment, fear of being perceived as old, unwillingness to give up freedoms of a single man, does not want to take responsibility and so on. Then again, there are those men that need a gentle nudging to do the right thing. If you (a woman) are in a relationship, and your man has not proposed yet, here are some ideas that will help get him to do so - so you don't have to resort to force as in the picture on the right suggests, hehe!

1. Start leaving hints about your readiness for marriage. You can start by talking about weddings of your friends, and about how happy your friends are. You can mention that you think they are embarking on a new and special chapter in their lives. He can read between the lines.

2. You may be ready for marriage, but do not assume that he is. After the initial stage where you start talking about other people's weddings and marriages, you can now begin to talk to him about the direction where your relationship is headed. But don't push for an answer immediately. Give him some time to warm up to the idea. Create visions for him about how the future will be when the two of you are married. If he can visualize a happy future, he will be more open to the idea of proposing to you.

3. Introduce him to your family - by doing so, you are indicating to him that he is someone special, and that you are ready to include him in your family and loved ones.

4. While you are doing all of the above, be careful not to become obessive. Harping on the same topic day after day is not healthy for you, and it will also scare him off. No one wants an obessive, needy woman clinging on to them.

5. If the above fails and you get no response from him, then ask him outright if he thinks of you as the kind of girl he could marry someday. If he says no, then you will know that he is not the one for you, and that you should stop wasting your time and find another guy who is ready to settle down with you.
