You’ve found your dream wedding dress and have booked your fairy tale venue – now it’s time to think about your bridal beauty regime! Below, we’ve compiled a list of special beauty treatments that you may like to look into for your big day.
Looking for well-defined, beautifully arched eyebrows? During a threading session, a cotton thread is rolled over the eyebrow area in order to sculpt the brow and remove any excess hair.
Threading is an inexpensive and high-impact beauty treatment, which is well worth including on your wedding beauty itinerary. Threading is designed to arch the eyebrows, open up the eye area, and lift your whole face – all with the quick twist of a thread.
False eyelashes are an affordable way to get sky-high lashes, and you can find many fabulous, natural looking lashes in the beauty aisle. However, when it comes to application, false eyelashes can be a bit of a gooey, messy hassle, and you may be worried that they will not hold up throughout the ceremony and the party celebrations. Lash extensions provide a cleaner alternative and they can keep you looking doe eyed for up to four weeks, meaning you could happily skip your mascara during your honeymoon. Beauty blogger, Elizabeth Smith-Dane, claims that: “Wearing eyelash extensions on your wedding day is a must, as they make you feel sexy and confident”.
Lash extensions come in a range of styles, from Marilyn Monroe glamour lashes to fluttering naturals. Lash extensions might be more expensive (although you can often find some great deals online) and time consuming, but they are a lovely beauty touch for your special day.
Every bride wants to look glowing on her wedding day. Facials can be used to exfoliate, nourish and hydrate the skin. Facials can greatly enhance your skin’s softness, clarity and radiance, and are a relaxing way to pamper yourself before your wedding day.
Spa consultations can be booked in advance where you can discuss your skincare needs with the staff, who will help you to decide on the best type of facial for your skin type and the kinds of results you desire.
Microdermabrasion is a highly popular facial for brides-to-be. Gentle aluminium oxide crystals slough off the top layer of dead skin cells that rest on the skin’s surface, revealing the dewy skin beneath. Microdermabrasion is a great pick for anyone looking for radiant, youthful looking skin.
Many brides-to-be opt for the pale-skinned English Rose look, while others may feel that a bronzed glow would perfectly set their bridal look. If you’re in the latter category, quality spray tans are a low-cost and healthy way to achieve a natural sun kissed glow – without the added risks that come with extensively tanning yourself in the sun. Many spas offer inexpensive spray tanning treatments, available in a variety of shades. You can also buy creams and lotions, from a number of luxury high streets brands; such as St Tropez, Nivea, and Xen-Tan.
