Oh the horror! Imagine waking up to the sight of a pimple on your wedding day! Of all the days, never would a girl want this to happen to her on her wedding day.  Do not fret and fuss. We understand it is a very big deal, but we are here to help you fix all kinds of emergencies that might make an unpleasant entry.

Emergency 1: Pimples and zits

Pimples have traditionally been the girl’s worst enemy. Stop panicking and get to work immediately.

  • Get some ice cubes and rub it over the affected area.
  • If you want to pop it out (try avoiding it), make sure your hands are clean.
  • Dab a little lemon juice over it after it pops out. It might sting but lemon is known to dry out pimples.
  • Finally, apply a little toothpaste, preferably with a mint extract, and let it rest for some time before you start applying the makeup.

Emergency 2: Puffy eyes

A very common problem for most brides during their wedding, puffy or baggy eyes can be taken care of easily.

  • Warm up two caffeinated tea bags and put them over your eyes for a few minutes. It will soothe the blood vessels and reduce the swelling.
  • In the meantime, put some teaspoons in the freezer. Once they are chilled, place them over the eyes for a few minutes.
  • Finally, place some slices of potato or cucumber over your eyes to reduce all signs of fatigue. 

Emergency 3: Hairy mess

Well, this shouldn’t happen. After all, after your hair is fixed by the stylist, mishaps like these are unfortunate. But one never knows with emergencies!

  • Most brides choose buns as their staple hairstyle for their wedding day. In case the bun starts unravelling, all you need are some bobby pins and a hair spray.
  • Carefully pin back the rolled down hair. To help them stay put, use a generous amount of hair spray.
  • Caution, your bridal beauty kit should have these items in place.

Emergency 4: Chipped nails

Your looks can be totally spoiled by a mere chipped nail. You may have gone for the best manicure in town but a chipped nail can appear just out of nowhere.

  • Make sure you carry that nail polish in your beauty kit.
  • Re-apply the coat and let it dry properly.
  • In fact, the entire set of nail polish, nail polish remover and nail file should find a space in your kit for any untoward damage during the wedding. 

Emergency 5: Blisters

Well technically not a beauty emergency, but an emergency nonetheless!

  • New shoes can spell disaster on an important day like one’s wedding. Though you may have practised walking in them before the D-day, there are chances that they cause you discomfort.
  • Hence, keeping cotton and band-aids ready in your first-aid kit is imperative.
  • Keep a pair of flats handy. Wearing heels for long hours can be quite discomforting, especially if you are not used to it.
