Weddings are one of the happiest
days in a couple's life. It is the day
when the two profess their love not
only for each other, but make it offi-
cial to their friends and family. It is
considered by many to be one of the
most important days of an individu-
al's life. And for that fact WOW, also
wanted to share this important yet

com went online and asked
a few of their favourite
bloggers to offer some of
their beauty tips. What
they shared will impress,
yet at the same time defi-
nitely help you master your
beauty trickeries. The fol-
lowing are tips and tricks
they've all shared.
"If you have no quick-dry
products lying around, dip
your painted nails in a bowl
of ice-cold water to help them
dry faster. It really
works!"-Michelle Phan, You-
"I rub olive oil around my
nails before I embark on a
nail-art design. It makes
removing excess polish way
easier."-Taryn Multack, Miss
"Unlike regular lacquer, the
glittery kind is supposed to
look sort of uneven, so it's
great for fix-it situations.
When a nail chips, instead of
removing all my polish and
starting over, I'll just slap on
a coat of sparkle over my cur-
rent color. And when I (inev-
itably) get another chip, I paint
on a little more. You can keep
a manicure going indefinite-
ly!"-Alyssa Hertzig, The Spar-
"When I opt for nail stick-
ers, I always seal them with a
clear topcoat covering the tip
of the nail, too. It discourag-
es edges from peeling, makes
the decals last longer and gives
an authentic painted-on look
(so you can pretend you have
crazy nail skills!)."-Kathryn
Romeyn, Beauty Bender.
"I love sparkly polish, but
it sticks to your nails like crazy.
To remove it, I use felt instead
of a cotton ball-it works like
a gentle Brillo pad."-Allison
Kratzer, Makeup by Alli.
"I like my cover-up to float
on the skin and hide imper-
fections rather than sink in
and accentuate them. My lat-
est trick: I first dab my ring
finger into an eye balm then
swipe it over a solid conceal-
er and dot it on. The creamy
texture blends in very smooth-
ly and doesn't settle into lit-
tle lines. So nice."-Brooke
Pakulski, Blushing Noir.
"Instead of layering on
powder before happy hour,
press a few drops of face oil
over your cheeks to refresh
your foundation and create a
super natural glow."-Elizabeth
Dehn, Beauty Bets.
"I have the least steady
hands on the planet, but I love
the way my eyes look when
they're tightly lined. I've
learned to hold a liquid-liner
marker pen horizontally, so
I'm using the broader side of
the tip instead of the fine
point, and press it into my
lash line. This way I can line
my eyes in three to four quick
stamps instead of trying to
draw a straight line-which is
Ramos, The Glossarie.
"If your eye and lip pencils
are really soft, leave them in
the fridge for about an hour
before you sharpen them-the
less creamy they are, the less
waste there is."-Christine
"I spin my brush in small,
light circles from my cheek-
bone to my hairline. This trick
gives a flawless, airbrushed
"After I douse a cotton pad
with my regular makeup
remover, I add a bit of coco-
nut oil and apply it to my
closed eye. It helps break up
the makeup, so it slides off
with more ease."-Julie Guti-
errez, YouTube vlogger.
"Eye shadow works, too, to
give lipstick longer-lasting
wear and a unique matte fin-
ish. Just make sure it match-
es your lip shade."-Alexis
Wolfer, The Beauty Bean.
"Before applying mascara,
place a business card or index
card behind your lashes to
cover your lid. Starting at the
roots, swipe mascara all the
way to the tip. You can real-
ly let the wand fly so it length-
ens without making a mess-
the mascara will just hit the
card! Your lashes will go from
barely-there to full and thick
in seconds."-Jeannine Morris,
Beauty Sweet Spot.
