You have your venue, dress, flowers and everything else organised… Now it’s time to think about your Wedding Beauty. Here are some tips for brides to be, so you look flawless on your special day!!!
– Have your hair and makeup trial one after the other on the same day so you can imagine the finished look. Also for your makeup trial wear a white t-shirt so that you can see how the make-up looks against white as that is the colour you will be wearing on your big day
-If your using fake tan for your big day, It’s best to get a trial or even a few trials to ensure the colour is perfect ( dark enough or light enough) . It’s best to get a spray tan 2 days before your wedding day to ensure the bronzer has properly washed off and your tan has fully developed into the ideal colour. Best to get a qualified spray tan technician like Ciobahn from Born Beauty Mobile Spray Tanning
-Now before you have your hair trial, communicate with your hairstylist and make sure you have discussed whether or not you need hair extensions or hair padding to achieve the look your after. So you can bring products along with you on your trial day.
– A couple of days before your wedding get a shellac (gel nail polish colour) manicure and pedicure. Best way to go for your wedding day!! Your nails will look freshly painted and last up to two weeks with no polish chipping during or before your special day.
– Eye lash extensions, they’re a brilliant way to make your eyes stand out and look far more subtle than a false full strip lash. Eyelash extensions are glued on top of your natural lash they will look natural and beautiful up to 2-4 weeks, so after your wedding your lashes will look great on your honeymoon also
‘Pile it on – It’s a total myth that your makeup has to be plastered on for the photographs. Most wedding photography is done in natural light, and if you choose a heavy base the make-up will look obvious and not natural. In terms of flash, you just need to ensure that your T Zone is matte and you use a camera finish powder which all makeup artist should have in their kit’.
– ‘Be scared of going a bit brighter. Neutral, brown, and pale lip colours can look washed out in photographs, so choose a lipstick that’s one or two shades brighter than what you would normally wear. Also don’t by shy to try a red lippy, a lot more brides are wearing a bright lip now a days’
‘DIY your hair, makeup or any other beauty treatments, it’s your special day and you should get the pros to do it not only because they know what they are doing but it’s all about you being relaxed and pampered!’
‘Treat yourself to any facials or waxing your brows, face or any body parts the day before or morning of your wedding day…You wouldn’t want to risk having any redness or even worse an allergic reaction on your big day. Also facials are designed to bring any congestion to the surface of your skin, not a good look on your big day’ – I highly recommend Ciobahn from Born Beauty.
‘ Forget to decide what kind of maintenance you’d prefer for the day. Eg. are you happy to check you’re looking okay throughout the day, or do you want to just forget about your make-up once it’s on? Waterproof mascara is a must, also worth considering are cream eyeshadows that really set – you can be sure they’ll stay where you put them, along with a colorstay gloss or lipstick’!!
