Bridal Countdown Begins – Look Your Best on Your Wedding Day

The Countdown Begins!

Looking flawless on your wedding day isn’t as simple is waking up the day of and having your hair and makeup done.  In order to absolutely jaw-dropping, we’ve compiled a breakdown of what you can do up to 6 months before the big day!

6 MONTHS BEFORE

  • Start treating your hair Trim, gloss and treatment. Book them every six weeks between now and the weeding. You’ll thank yourself when the big day has arrived.
  • Think colour Book an appointment with your colorist, getting the right hue might take several times before you get the look you want. Let the experts explain you want suits your complexion. Highlight are a nice way to brighten up your look. Gloss is great for darker hair, it lives a shine, rich color and amazing texture to the hair.
  • Laser Start to laser unwanted hair! Book your appointments but leave your last appointment tree weeks before your wedding! You don’t want to be left with any redness or irritation.

3 MONTHS BEFORE

  • Facials Don’t we all love facials? Book an appointment at your Spa for a deep cleansing facial, this will eliminate dead cells, clear up your complexion and hydrate your skin! Remember makeup sits better on a hydrated skin! Please follow the treatment at home! If you don’t have a good cleanser, toner, exfoliate and Cream!!! GO BUY!!! It’s a must J Book facials every two weeks for best results!
  • Lashes It takes 8 to 12 weeks before new lashes stat growing so start treating your lashes, Use Vitamin E oil! Simply apply the oil on the roots of the lashes with a k-tip at night, this will help the lashes grow longer and stronger. Try not to put a lot of mascara! Give your lashes time to breath and stay away from waterproof mascaras!

2 MONTHS BEFORE

  • Bronze Okay! Now it’s safe to try on a spray tan! Schedule appointment to a few salons! Make sure you work around your Bridal shower, bachelorette, and photo shoots so you won’t feel uncomfortable with your color! If you went too dark or feel orange consult my Makeup Monday “Self Tanning.”
  • Nails Here we are, back to the spa!! Yeyyyy J make sure you book once a week for a manicure and twice a month for pedicures. You want your hand and feet to look it’s best.

1 MONTH BEFORE

  • Smile! Call your Dentist and schedule an appointment to whiten your teeth or if you prefer you can buy a kit at the pharmacy!

1 WEEK

  • Wax Please!! Don’t leave the waxing last minute, as a makeup artist I’ve seen my brides left with burn scabs, breakout, and redness! You don’t want that to happen to you! So I beg you book your appointment at least 3 to 4 days before.
  • Breath! It’s going to be a crazy week for you so take time to relax! Going for a massage with your friend, mom, fiancé or even alone will help you distress and make you a happier bride.

Makeup Mondays Vol.3

Bronzer


Sunless tanning (also known as self tanning, fake tanning, or UV-free tanning) refers to applying chemicals to the body to produce an effect similar in appearance to a more traditional suntan.

When applying bronzer make sure that you are using a large flat powder brush. Good brushes are worth the investment! Move upward from your neck and jaw line to your cheeks. To find the apples of your cheeks, simply smile.

It’s important that you blend well! The best blending is achieved by moving your brush in a soft circular motion, the point of this is you want your makeup to blend in with the natural oils of your skin and look as smooth and flawless, leaving no streaks behind!! So trust me! Blend! Blend! Blend!

Choose a bronzer that is only a few shades darker then your real skin tone. Start applying a small amount at first as a base and just add on as you go till you get the best shade for your skin tone. Remember, it is easier to build color then to fix mistakes! So please take your time!

Bronzers can work well on all skin tones except porcelain, because it can leave the skin looking dirty.

Until next time,
