Bridal Beauty Routine

1. Manicures
Flaunt that engagement ring!  You want your hands to look their best right when everyone wants you to show off that sparkler.  Right after the proposal is the perfect time to schedule regular manicures.

2. Beauty Sleep
Being well rested is key to looking and feeling your best.  You don’t want to have dark circles or look tired on your wedding day.

Be sure to drink enough water, eat a balanced diet and to stay away from foods that are high in sodium, or sugar for 30 days leading up to the wedding.  This will help you to avoid bloating and skin issues.  You will be glowing and feel energetic on your big day!

Wedding planning can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you do not have a professional wedding planner by your side to ensure the process goes smoothly.  Set aside some “me time” as well as quality time with your fiance each week where nothing wedding related is discussed.

How about a hike or some yoga?  Whatever you like to do, it’s important to decompress a little, and will allow you both to feel refreshed when you do get back to the planning.

5. Pearly Whites
Whitening strips or whitening tooth paste will brighten your smile, but professional whitening treatments from your dentist will be stronger and custom fit to your mouth. Many dentists even offer discounts to new patients.  Try to avoid coffee and red wine, which can stain your teeth.  Ok, I know that’s a big ask… at least drink your wine through a straw for a while.

6. Tanning
Stop tanning one month prior to the wedding.  This also means wearing sunscreen and covering your shoulders to avoid nasty burns or tan lines.  Don’t forget a lip balm with spf!

If you opt for a spray tan though, let your makeup artist know so that they can properly colour match your skin.  The experts at Fabutan recommend that you get your spray tan done a few days in advance just to be safe.

7. Hair & Makeup Trial
Having a hair and makeup trial run is absolutely crucial to make sure you’re happy with your look.  This is your chance to see how your MUA and hair stylist interpret your requests, and make sure you are both on the same page.  Your stylist will get a chance to familiarize herself/ himself with your hair type and how it behaves.  There may be a fee, so be sure to bring up the topic when you are hiring them.
