Bridal Beauty Tips
1. Be Yourself
I advise my brides that they should be themselves. So if youre someone who wears no makeup then keep it simple Don’t let anyone, or make-up artist, tell that you should or need to wear more on the day if it doesn’t feel right. At the same time if you are someone who loves their makeup …the liner, the lips, the false lashes the whole shebang. Don’t be tempted to go au natural unless you have tried it before. Wear all the make-up you want if that is your signature look.
2.Matchy Matchy Bridesmaids makeup
You need to match all the bridesmaids’ make-up so they lose their individuality. Your bridesmaids will thank you if you allow them to be themselves. Take into consideration their skin tone and age when deciding on the make-up look. You need to be sure that everyone is looking like you want them to and are feeling happy and confident .
3. Last Minute Beauty Treatments
Lots of brides plan facials, false tans, manicures, botox and teeth whitening a week before the wedding date hoping they’ll look fab on the day, this is not a great ideas the skin can erupts, teeth become over sensitive and fake tans look fake. Solution… plan well ahead… start or continue a good skincare routine, have your usuall regular manicures, see skin specialists, dentists etc at least 6 months before the wedding day. If you plan to have a tan, do a test tan a few weeks before wedding then have it topped up 3 days before the wedding.
4 When to Shine
Most brides want to look radiant and dewy both on the day and in the photos but be careful that you don’t look greasy. Keep the t-zone shine free, highlight the tops of the cheek bones and under the arch of the brows. If you have naturally oily skin and want to minimize shine. The are many Anti-shine product available which you can apply on your skin before your foundation.
5 False Lashes
I love false lashes especially on a bride they can really enhance your whole eye makeup but if you are going to have the Semi-permanent ones try them a couple of weeks before the day. Another option is the individual ones that you can remove at the end of the night. These are the ones I use on my brides because they come in different sizes and because we have seen how great they look when I have done the trial.
