When it comes to being photographed, your wedding day reigns Queen and the proof is in the numbers. In a recent Invisalign® survey conducted by Wakefield Research, it was found that on average, a bride will have 342 photos taken to document everything from the “yes” to the “I Do”. That’s a lot of photos! So making sure you and those pearly whites are camera ready is essential. Now enter our partners, the Invisalign brand and their oh so fabulous sweepstakes – more on that in a bit!
With Invisalign’s clear aligners, brides can discreetly straighten their teeth and have the smile they’ve always wanted in time for the big, big day. So scheduling a consult with an Invisalign-certified provider as early as possible is a no-brainer. Because we all know, a gorgeous, natural smile is, hands down, the best accessory on a bride. Unlike traditional wire and bracket braces, results using Invisalign are visible immediately since an improving smile shines right through the clear aligners.
So with that ever improving smile under your belt and a million and one pictures in your near future have a look at these great tips for getting camera ready and showing off those perfect teeth…
1. Makeup: A few makeup pointers can go a long way in front of the camera. First, be sure to blend your foundation through your neck for an even skin tone. Next, under-eye concealer is your new bestie. The flash emphasizes under-eye bags and dark circles so cover up. Third, be sure your mascara is waterproof. Raccoon eyes are never a good look. And last, raise those cheekbones with a highlighter or shimmery powder.
2. Drink Lots of Water: Staying hydrated will benefit the look of your skin plus it’s super healthy. It’s a win win.
3. Define those Lips: Use a lip liner to define your lips. Then add a neutral lip gloss for a subtle sheen that will make your teeth look whiter.
4. Practice Makes Perfect: Listen to the wise words of your mom and focus on that posture. No slouching ladies! You want to look relaxed but polished.
