Beautiful Bride

Every Bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day and even though most Brides will spend hours choosing the venue and the dress they sometimes leave their hair and make up to the last minute. I would always recommend that you invest in a professional make up artist.

I recently spoke with Cheryl Huggins, Beauty & Make Up Expert and asked her for some tips for Brides to be and she offered this advice:

Schedule a consultation with your make up artist as so that you can meet and look at their previous work and testimonials.

Before the trial go through magazines & find images that you like, Romantic, Elegant, Hollywood or Natural, its fine to say you like the look of these eyes but this lipstick, look for images that will work well with your features and skin tones. Always include looks that you definitely do not want and show these to your artist as well.
If you have not tried false lashes before don't rule them out, have a go at your trial, they can make your eyes looking stunning in photographs.

A picture of the dress or your theme will help the artiste to build a visual image of the look you will create together.

Let them know if you have any special requests allergies , birthmarks you want disguised.

Don't be afraid to say you don't like the look of your first trial, remember its your day and it may take a couple of go's to get exactly what you want.

Once you feel comfortable and are happy with your look, take a picture and write down the products & colours that have been used.

With your choice completed do not change your skin care or beauty regime close to the day of the wedding with rigorous facials, teeth whitening or fake tans as at any time your skin could react badly. If you are going to have a spray tan have it for your trial as well.

Always let the artist know all the details of your day such as timings, number of bridesmaids that may require make up, does the Mother of the Bride so that time can be built in to accommodate all on the day. Last minute additions may not always be possible.

Invest in regular skincare, eat and sleep well and drink lots of water to glow inside and out!

Look gorgeous and enjoy your day!
