Tips to flawless skin on your wedding day

 

Welcome to a new segment we are starting here on our blog focusing specifically on Bridal Beauty!

 

Allow me to introduce you to the talented Toronto-based fashion and bridal makeup artist, Annesley. Annesley and I have worked together at Cargo Cosmetics, where she was the national makeup artist for the brand. Not only does she have a big heart and a warm personality, her makeup artistry is truly flawless. We are proud to have her as a contributor to the MIYU blog, where she will share her color cosmetics expertise. She will contribute from time-to-time giving the best makeup artist tips and tricks that you can quickly learn and do on your own. Grab your makeup brushes, friends, and let’s practice!

 

A bride’s happy glow and radiant beauty is what we remember most from her special day, so skincare and make-up are two of the most important elements in bridal planning. Many brides leave this part of their planning to the last minute, often leading to disappointment. The following make-up artist tips will help you prepare your bridal beauty in the months leading up to your wedding.

 

 

1) Book a make-up artist early, at least 6 months in advance. The best make-up artists book up quickly. Review their on-line portfolio and make the extra investment of booking a trial. It will be well worth it!

 

2) Begin taking extra care of your health and skin months before wedding day. Eat healthy food, drinks lots of water and stay well rested. Add a healthy tea and facial essence to your regime. MIYU hydrate mi and de-stress mi beauty teas nourish from the inside out for healthy glowing skin, while the MIYU Beauty Essences boost the results of your skincare regime.

 

3) Keep MIYU de-stress mi beauty essence in your purse as a mid-day refresher and moisture boost. Both beauty essences are perfect in the Winter when the skin is dry as well as in the Summertime after sun exposure.

 

4) Use gentle, perfume-free skin care products appropriate for your skin type or skin condition.

 

5) Keep it simple with a gentle cleanser, toner, skin essence/serum and lastly a lightweight moisturizer.

 

6) Use an SPF if you are going in the sun and avoid tanning beds as they age and dehydrate the skin which can look unflattering in bridal photos.

 

7) Avoid harsh skin treatments in the month leading up to your wedding. Waxing/hair removal should never be done in the week leading up to the wedding.

 

8) Full, natural but neatly groomed eyebrows are the most flattering for the face and frame your eyes. If you have over-tweezed your eyebrows begin growing them in the year leading up to your wedding. Work with a trusted brow expert to assist you in getting a nice shape.

 

9) In planning your dream make-up, look to classical romantic beauty as inspiration. Nothing dates your wedding pictures more than a trendy make-up look. Have lots of inspirational pictures ready to show your make-up artist.

 

10) Lastly begin investing in the make-up pieces you will need as touch-up items on wedding day: pressed powder, lipstick, lip gloss and a purse-size MIYU beauty essence to refresh your skin!

 

Stay tuned until next time for some bridal application tips.
