So you’re engaged… How wonderful!
When you plan your wedding large or small you need to put your hair,makeup and skincare close to the top of that list of things to do too. You want to look your best. Don’t you?
Several months before the big day you need to get your skin ready and for it to look the best it can be. If you don’t already do it get a Deep Cleansing Facial. Getting a facial is like getting your teeth professionally cleaned by the dental hygienist but for your skin. The photographs you take on your special day and leading up to your wedding day last a lifetime.
The esthetician at a spa or clinic analyzes your skin and makes a plan so your skin will look its absolute healthiest.
She or he will spend time exfoliating, toning, hydrating and skin tightening your face with various products and devices. Whatever they think your skin needs. Times have changed and technology is so advanced. So many wonderful things available to us now than ever before.
The skin therapist will set up a skin care routine and products for you to do at home as well. She may just become your new best friend!
If you don’t have an esthetician ask a friend or do a Google search. There is nothing like your friends referral. Right?
If you would like to try someone else rather than your regular hairstylist …DO IT. Especially if you need someone to do some up dos and elaborate hair styling. There are stylists who cut hair, color hair and some who specialize in … just doing brides!
It all depends on the LOOK you are looking for. “Country Charm, Snow Princess or Earth Angel”. I know you have a vision. Let them know what it is. Book a consultation first to see their work and ask to see their look book.
They usually have photographs of their work on their website or on Instagram. Many celebrities work with fashion stylists,hair stylists,makeup artists that not only do great work they select ones who they FEEL comfortable with. Not just your regular haircuts and trims but by a hair treatment so your hair will not look dull, lifeless,split ends and frizzy. The stylist will recommend professionally a hair product plan for you to use at home too. Think of this routine like they are like a gym for your hair. Get your hair in the best shape it can be.
Lastly, you will need to find a makeup artist. Time to decide if you want one for your wedding day or do you want to do your own makeup the day of your wedding. A makeup artist can make you look your best in person and in photographs by a photographer or iPhone camera.
You don’t want your skin to look shiny, blemished, your eyes look tired or your blush obviously overdone. It is all in the details.
If you typically don’t wear false eyelashes or don’t like them.Don’t do it. If you are not comfortable in them or they are not your style it is best to stay away from them. Same is true of makeup. You don’t want your makeup to be over the top. You have to let the hairstylist and makeup artist know what you want. Bring them photos from bridal magazines or from photos and looks you like online. This will help them to help you.
