Even on your wedding day, a beauty emergency can strike at any time. It’s almost like the grown-up version of a popular children’s show, where the main character wakes up with a crazy zit on picture day. There are many precautions you can take during the months leading up to your big day, but sometimes things still go awry. 

Whether your makeup doesn’t come out the way it did in the test runs or you have a cowlick that will not and cannot be tamed, don’t fear. The professionals at Windows on the Water have put their heads together and come up with a guide to your emergency beauty problems, detailed with reassurances and solutions. 

3 Common Wedding Beauty Emergencies and Solutions

As you are getting ready, surrounded by your closest friends and family, it’s not uncommon for something unexpected to happen. No matter the emergency, we have you covered. Three common beauty emergencies and their appropriate solutions include: 


The unfortunate truth is for many of us, stress leads to acne. The hullabaloo surrounding a wedding is fun and exciting but, yes, it’s often stressful too. This means that it’s not unheard of to wake up the day of your wedding with a zit. If this has happened to you, we have a few tips: 

  • Apply a calming cream
  • Use ice! This will help reduce redness and puffiness
  • Redness neutralizing creams
  • Hydrate yourself

Most importantly, try to relax if possible. Your makeup artist is more than likely prepared for a situation like this and can help to remedy the situation with calming or redness-neutralizing creams. If this has not happened to you yet but you are scared it might, consider setting an appointment with a dermatologist before your wedding and getting professional tips to ensure your skin is soft and smooth for the big day.  

Bad Hair Day

Bad hair days happen to the best of us. Luckily, if you wake up a little hungover from your bachelorette party and it’s all noticeable in your hair, it’s not a big deal! Take a cold shower and let the water give your hair a natural redo. If it still comes out looking funky, your hair stylist is here to help. 

A hair emergency can also appear in the form of your stylist getting a little too creative and not matching the style that was promised. If you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, simply ask them to change it! Try to be specific with your requests so they can quickly apply any modifications. Be sure to remain calm and nice, and know nobody is going to judge you for wanting your hair done perfectly. 

Makeup Mess

Did your makeup artist go a little overboard? Did one of your bridesmaids get their makeup done separately and it doesn’t quite match the rest of your party? Your professional makeup artist won’t bat an eyelash if you ask for small tweaks here and there for your own makeup. Again, it is your big day. 

For the rogue bridesmaid, consider doing small changes right then and there to match the aesthetic! It’s smart to bring a tiny travel kit with brushes and concealers to wherever you are getting ready.
