Many brides-to-be spend as much time planning out their wedding hairstyles and makeup as they do shopping for the perfect wedding dress or deciding on the reception's dinner menu.
A lot of women splurge on a professional makeup artist on their big day, to help them look lovely and feel pampered. However, because professionals may use products and brands other than those you typically wear, it may be wise to ask them to do a test run. Some women are sensitive to the chemicals and products in certain types of makeup.
The only tear shed on your wedding day should be tears of joy. To be absolutely sure that you won't react to the eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara the cosmetologist uses, request products that are guaranteed to be safe for those with sensitive eyes.
Celebrities like Brooke Shields, whose eyes require a little extra care, have turned to tubing mascara which won't flake off and irritate eyes.
"Brooke Shields has watery eyes and we had to find something that would work on her," Lipstick Jungle make-up artist Sheri Kornhaber told Makeup Artist Magazine. "Kiss Me Mascara is silicone based - it forms tubes on eyelashes. You put it on and it will never smudge."
