Wedding season is upon us! Getting married is one of the most exciting days of your life. You want every part of it to be perfect. You’ll want to create a timeless look that will last in your memories and photographs forever.Here are some fab tips to help.

Bridal Makeup Tips

  1. If you’re not sure what type of look you want, start looking through bridal magazines before you meet with a makeup artist.
  2. Make sure you set up your trial consultation at least one month before your wedding.
  3. If you decide to do your own wedding makeup, please have a lesson by a professional makeup artist. There are many things that you need to do differently on your wedding day that you don’t do on an everyday basis.
  4. Give your eyebrows some thought before you see your makeup artist. You may want to have them waxed by a professional. Start early. Sometimes it can take up to 6 months to achieve your desired brow shape. Don’t wait until the day before your wedding to get your brows done! One to two weeks before your wedding is perfect. The skin surrounding your brows, need a little time to heal.
  5. Be sure you’re drinking plenty of water and staying away from caffeine prior to your wedding. Caffeine will dehydrate your skin and make it look dull.
  6. If you plan on getting a facial, do it at least a month before your wedding. If you’re starting any laser, chemical peels or other treatments, do so at least 6 months prior to your special day. If you haven’t already, you may want to start a good skin care regimen and stick to it day and night for best results. Don’t over do it; exfoliating both day and night, for example, will do more harm than good.
  7. Give your lips a little attention. Make a paste out of sugar and water and gently exfoliate them using your fingertip. This will not only make your lips look soft and smooth, but it will also make your lipstick stay on longer.
  8. When booking the times for hair and/or makeup always allow for plenty of extra time. Unexpected things always come up.
  9. Arrange to have a relaxing wedding morning, sit back and enjoy your beautiful day and don’t forget to eat!
