Whether you plan on posing for some HD bridal shots or you just want to look polished for a date, here are some general tips to making sure your hair, makeup and teeth look their absolute best!
Essential Tips to Get Camera-Ready
Create a cute hairstyle.
I don’t always go to the salon before events, but I still like to look polished and put-together. So that means I usually create some sort of hairstyle for my hair. The Braided Headband (shown below) is a really easy hairstyle that you can pull off in a matter of minutes, but it’s still totally pretty and perfect for a special occasion. Here are the step-by-step directions to create this style!
- Grab a small section of hair from the temple-area of the head.
- Form a tight braid on that section of hair. Secure the end with a tiny rubber band.
- Pull the hair around the top of the head and secure behind the other ear with a few bobby pins.
Here’s a picture showing the braided headband!
Whiten your teeth
I’ve always believed that a great, bright smile can really make such a positive impact in pictures (and in person!) That’s why when I found out about my friend’s upcoming wedding, I knew I would want to whiten my teeth for all the upcoming photo shoots. So I have been using the Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips and I’m so impressed with its ease of use, convenience and effectiveness!
When it comes to preparing for bridal events, whitening the teeth is a priority on everyone’s list. If you’d like your teeth to look their best, you have to check out the Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips! In only 2 weeks, these amazing Whitestrips can whiten teeth as well as a $500 laser treatment- all from the comfort of home on your own schedule! The kit come with 14 sealed packets. In each sealed packet, there are two Whitestrips. Simply peel the strips off the backing and place one on the upper teeth and one on the lower teeth. It only takes one hour per day to achieve phenomenal results! I usually place the Whitestrips on my teeth and watch one of my favorite shows or read a magazine… and before I know it, the time is up! Easy peasy! I hardly notice them when they’re on my teeth, as they’re flexible and very comfortable to wear!

Keep your hair soft & manageable.
I love a good deep conditioner for the hair. Actually, I enjoy making my own version, because it’s effective, affordable and fun! I’ve always loved making my own beauty products at home! So here is the recipe I use to make an easy homemade deep conditioner for the hair.
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor.
- 2. Massage into hair and place a shower cap on the head.
- 3. Let sit for 30-60 minutes. Rinse hair.
Apply makeup like a pro.
I love playing with makeup! It’s something I’ve done since I was a little girl and when it’s time to get ready for a big party, I always love to go all out: contouring, eyeliner, bronzer… the works! Here are some useful tips for applying makeup like a pro!
- Apply two similar shades of blush to your cheeks. The extra color will add some depth to the skin and make it look more authentic. Make sure to apply the colors lightly, so it all looks natural!
- I like to mix my foundation with some facial moisturizer to make the coverage a bit sheerer. It also creates a more flawlessly soft finish to the face.
- Use a highlighting product in the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone to lighten up the eye area and look more rested.
- Apply a bit of concealer to the lips before lipstick to make your lipstick last longer and look more vibrant.
A few days ago, my friend had her bachelerotte party at a local Italian restaurant with all our friends. I used all of the tips here in this post to get ready for this party! Here I am getting ready to join them for a fun-filled evening of good food and great laughs!
