The spring/summer wedding season is about to take off, so if you are getting ready for your wedding in the next few months here are
10 bridal beauty tips to have you glowing and gorgeous on your big day.
Even if you are months away from your wedding day start drinking extra water. Every cell in your body will love you for it and your skin will start to glow and look super vibrant!
2. Book your makeup artist.
The good ones book up fast so make sure you secure one as quickly as possible.
3. Book your trial makeup
I’m a big believer in getting this done as quickly as possible. You need to be certain that she is the right artist for you, and if she isn’t then you want tht extra time to find someone else.
Your artist may have some fabulous ideas for your look that take some time – maybe she wants you to grow your brows in, or maybe she wants you to get a series of facials. The sooner you can get started the better!
4. Find a really great facialist.
Whatever your budget, find someone to work with you on facial treatments to get your skin in super good shape. The better your skin looks, the better your makeup will look.
Your makeup artist can probably give you some great referrals if you don’t already have someone.
5. Book a trial airbrush tan.
Instead of planning on UV hours on a cancer bed, opt for an airbrush tan. Have a trial so you can see that you like the color and see how many days its good for. I like to count out how many days it is til perfect. For me day 3 is the best color. Once you know which day is the prettiest you can schedule it that many days prior to you wedding day.
6. Get a trial eyebrow session.
Everyone looks better with well groomed brows, but you don’t want to make any drastic changes, or have any drastic errors happen right before your wedding! Find a great brow girl and have a trial with her a few months out. If you love the look she gives you its easy to keep it maintained until your wedding day.
7. Plan your body treatments.
Start losing the rough skin of winter, and get some glow into your skin. Making the skin on your body glow can take a little work, so start early with exfoliation treatments and luxuriant lotions. Whatever skin is showing in your dress needs to be smooth, supple and radiant.
8. Cool Sculpt.
If you have problem areas that no amount of working out is helping, such as over the bra fat that wants to roll over the top of your strapless dress (even slim girls get this!), and if you have at last 3 months before your wedding day, look into Coolsculpting.
This is the miracle cure to literally melt away (well, freeze away) the problem folds and have you both looking and feeling sensational. I send my brides to Sandra at the Blume Skin Centre (click HERE for info). The results are nothing short of spectacular!
9. Treat your hands to some TLC
Every bride has photos taken of her hand with the ring, her hands holding the flowers, her hand slicing cake – her hand gets a ton of attention on her wedding day! Getting some hand treatments along the way helps to keep the skin smooth and luscious. If you have sun damage you can get photofacials on your hands. If the skin is just dried out and tired a few parafin treatments will make it look and feel like a million dollars!
10. Love your lips.
Soft, supple lips take work to achieve. Invest in a gentle exfoliant and a super lip balm and use them religiously in the months and weeks leading up to your big day.
Your lipstick will glide on and hold better, and your lips will look fantastic. Chapped, scaly lips never look good!
