Most brides dream about their wedding day, some started dreaming when they were younger and didn’t know who they would be saying “I Do” to and others start when why know they have found the person they want to spend the rest of their life with.
During all this time, they think about their wedding dress, accessories, hair, make-up and nails, thinking about the image they want to imprint into their fiancé’s memory. But most brides don’t stop to think about preparing the very foundation; they forget that they themselves are the canvas this image will be created on.
We all have our beauty routine that we are comfortable with, which mostly consists the three standard steps we were taught when we were younger; to wash, tone and moisturise with an occasional home mask and it works for us. But this is your wedding day and you want to look into your fiancé’s eye and know they are awe struck with your beauty.
So how do we do this? Well, we can look at one of history’s most famous bridal beauty routines, the beauty routine of Queen Ester. She had twelve months of beauty preparations before meeting with the King, some would say that, that is one of the most lavish make overs of all time, but she took the time needed, listened to the beauty advice given to her and became Queen.
We would also urge brides to take the time, find reputable professionals whose advice you can trust and know that you will look and feel like royalty on your wedding day.
Yes, find a make-up artist who knows how to cover any flaws your skin might have, but also scheduling facials well in advice to have your skin looking radiant. Most certainly find a hair dresser that knows how to let your hair look its best, but remember to put back what styling has taken out and your hair will be healthier than ever with pre-wedding treatments.
