Hair And Beauty Tips For Your Wedding Day ~ GP
Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day. It might be down to choosing the perfect dress (visit a Berketex Bride if you’re still in need of inspiration), or it might be about your hair and make-up looking perfect on the day. Here are some hair and beauty tips to help you look your best.
Hire a professional
You might not want to worry about sorting out your own hair while trying to enjoy your wedding day. Hiring a professional means you can sit back and collect your thoughts while someone else pampers you. The same goes for make-up. It might be that you can do your make-up flawlessly every day but to ensure it’s perfect for your wedding day, hire a make-up artist. Most offer an initial consultation and test run as part of their wedding package so you can find someone to get your look perfect.
Get the best brushes
If you aren’t hiring a professional make-up artist then you should invest in some great make-up brushes, like those that can be found at Boots. These are often overlooked but they can transform the way you put on your make-up and the time it takes. A great eye shadow brush will help you to blend colours effortlessly, a contouring brush can help to accentuate your bone structure and a lip brush will help to keep lipstick in place.
Go for a consultation
A lot of beauty counters will give you a free makeover in store, so you can get an idea of what colours suit you. Visit your favourite brand and get talking to the beauty consultant. After the makeover they’ll be able to recommend products and will be able to tell you what colours work with your skin tone, hair and eye colour. This is a great place to start if you want to create your own wedding look.
This is one of those things that is super-versatile. You can cook with it, make it into a face scrub or use it on your hair. In the run up to your wedding melt some coconut oil and apply to the mid-end lengths of your hair. The result will be glossy locks and no split ends. If you have naturally greasy hair, keep the oil right to the ends just to soften the tips.
A lot of brides make the mistake of detoxing a week before their wedding. When you detox, your body pushes out all the impurities and toxins, which can lead to spot breakouts. The same goes with a facial, the process helps to detox your skin and this can also cause breakouts. Your detox should start three weeks before your wedding. Drink plenty of water (2.5 litres or more per day), eat clean – this means no processed foods – and try to up your intake of vegetables. If you’re going for a facial ahead of the wedding, by the way have you seen Heaton House!? speak to your beauty therapist about when is the best time to visit to avoid breakouts. Generally two weeks before is best.
Finally, if you are going to be doing your own hair and make up on the day, practice! Make an evening of it with your bridesmaids or perhaps just take some time to your self to play around with hairgrips, curlers, lipstick and eye-liner.
