Tips and Tricks for Brides To Be

June 16, 2017

So I thought I would put a few things down here for those of you who are getting married and wondering what you should do to prepare beauty wise. Maybe you are low maintenance, or you get everything done on a regular basis, whatever your preference these are the basic rules I give to all my clients.

 

 PLEASE DON'T GET A SPRAY TAN :)

 

These tend to be very high maintenance and prone to degradation, can be transferred onto your dress and run (especially if you are getting married in a hot/ humid climate). They also lift from the face first and this can create a very unnatural break between your face and neck. Your hands can also look streaky (not good for ring photos). The aim is to look naturally beautiful on your wedding day and unless you are a fake tan pro I would avoid avoid avoid
 


PLEASE DON'T GET A FACIAL THE WEEK BEFORE YOUR WEDDING

 

 

Facials are extremely beneficial for the skin and very relaxing, however they stimulate the skin to cleanse itself and this can encourage spots to form. We want your skin to be at its natural best so unless you have a facial regularly without breakouts then I would suggest you save it for the honeymoon 😉


THINK ABOUT YOUR HANDS AND FEET

 

 


If you are not someone who gets a regular manicure, then think about booking yourself in for one. There are some great gel nail polishes available in salons (CND, OPI, Gelish) and they should last you up to two weeks, chip free. Even a quick tidy (file and cuticle work) will finish off your look on the day and make sure you are picture perfect. If you are wearing open toed shoes then get your feet done as well – go on, treat yourself!


THINK ABOUT YOUR BROWS

 

 


Consider getting your brows shaped a few days before the wedding. If this is something you don’t do already, then be very clear what shape you would like before the beautician starts as they may take more than you would like. (I prefer to work with tweezers for a more natural look). A good tip is to check out their own brows – if you don’t like what you see, go somewhere else! NB some people can react strongly to wax on the brow so if you have never had this done before then maybe have a practice run a few weeks in advance…..


WHEN SHOULD I WASH MY HAIR?

 

 


If you are having an ‘updo’, I would recommend to wash your hair the day before, or even the day before that if your hair tends toward the dry side. This is because the natural grease in your hair will help it to grip and give the style longevity. If you are having your hair down and styled naturally/ blow dried, then of course you can wash your hair on the day.
