If you're like most brides, you'd go to great lengths to look your best on the big day. While some brides take to heart the old adage "No pain, no gain," there are some shortcuts you can take to look picture-perfect on your wedding. Below are some beauty cheats to amp up your bridal look--and the best part is that these will give you instant results!
If you're sporting a short do and you want longer locks for your wedding, hair extensions--multiple strands of faux hair attached to your real hair--are your best bet. These will give your locks volume, style and even some color, plus they look more natural than wigs. You may opt for clip-on extensions if you want to wear your hair long just for the wedding, but you can also have professionally-done extensions if you want to keep them after the bid day. Most hair extensions are made of synthetic material, but some are actually made of real hair. Keira Hair Extensions offers a variety of hair extensions, which are made of 100% real human hair.
If you're worried about a bulging tummy, but don't have time to go to the gym (and going under the knife is out of the question), then you can wear a body shaper. Whether you want to lift your butt, enhance your bust, or hide love handles, body shapers can manage your figure imperfections. Body shapers range from body-hugging suits to skin tight shorts that go all the way up to your lower bust line. Their tight form and structure help smooth out bulges, so you can slip on your wedding dress effortlessly. You can try La Senza's Support Dress or Shaping Bikeshort for a desirable, wedding-ready shape.

Want to have extra expressive eyes on your wedding day? If liquid eyeliners and thick mascaras aren't enough for you, consider getting eyelash extensions. There are stick-on faux eyelashes available in department stores (PhP150)--you can wear these on the big day. However, if you want longer-lasting long lashes, you can get professional eyelash extensions. Lavish Lashes is a salon entirely dedicated to prettifying your peepers, and they have a variety of eyelash extensions to can choose from. Their extensions are carefully glued one by one along your lash line, so these can stay on for as long as two weeks!

Spray-on Leg Makeup
Putting on a sexy short dress for the reception, but worried about some blemishes on your legs? If wearing stockings or pantyhose aren't your thing, then wearing spray-on leg make-up might just do the trick. One product to try is Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (PhP1000) leg make-up--its water-resistant formula will make your legs naturally flawless all day. Simply spray on the make-up, and you'll be ready to flaunt those legs in no time! Remember to let the make-up dry completely before you put on your dress--brown streaks won't go well with your ensemble.
