The Eyes Have It: Eye Tune-Ups You Should Consider Before Your Wedding

Posted on

When it comes to your wedding look, you should take the old adage seriously: the eyes are the windows to the soul. But just like every other part of you, you'll want your windows to look as good as possible on the big day. So if you're looking for a few eye tune-up ideas you should consider before your wedding, then here's what you need to know.

Three to Six Months Before the Wedding: Lasik

Wanting to look perfect on your wedding day is no alien thought, so if you've struggled with vision problems your whole life, can't wear contacts, or just plain don't want to have to wear glasses on your wedding day, Lasik surgery is a good way to go. You'll want to have this surgery done at least 3 months before you say I do, though having it done 6 months before (which is the outside edge of the normal healing range) gives you a wider safety net in case the normal side effects (dry eyes, temporarily decreased night vision, and eye discomfort) take a bit longer to go away.

Two Weeks Before the Wedding: Eyelash Tinting

If you have light hair – or even just somehow have light or light-tipped eyelashes – but don't want to use coat after coat of mascara for your wedding makeup (not to mention crying off coat after coat of mascara during the ceremony), then consider getting your eyelashes tinted two weeks before your wedding.

Not only will this give you the color you've always dreamed of, but it will also cut down on the amount of makeup you have to wear, not to mention the amount of makeup you'll have to take off at the end of the day. Eyelash tinting can last as long as 5 weeks, but to be absolutely sure you've got the color you want, get your eyelashes tinted 1 ½ to 2 weeks before your wedding – just long enough to get used to it, but not long enough for it to start wearing off.

Seven Days Before the Wedding: Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a great idea to erase the crow's feet around your eyes that can make you look older in photos and give your makeup fine lines to settle into. Though the side effects of dermal fillers (redness and swelling) usually go away within 48 hours, it's a good idea to give yourself a little more recovery time than that and get them done one week before your wedding day.
