Beauty regimens, in large measure, amount to a bride’s allowing herself a little extra pampering in the months before, and right up to, her special day. That beauty regimen also provides a bonus, because such routines are great stress-busters and everyone knows that anything that relieves anxiety and calms the nerves is a real gift for every prospective bride.

Don’t forget drink WATER, WATER, WATER! And for that extra glow eat lots of fruit in the months before, something like a fruit smoothie is easy to make and fast. You will see the difference

Once you know your wedding timetable, make all your beauty-related appointments well in advance. From makeup and hair to waxing and nails. Many a bride has found herself seeing a new hairdresser who has never done her hair before, because hers was out-of-town, or booked solid.

Make an appointment to have a talk with your hairstylist. Take advice from a professional. Ask about and discuss the hair style, cut, and colour that she or he feels would best compliment your face shape and your type of hair. Talk about several styling options and which your stylist feels would work best for you. Such a discussion will be especially helpful when you begin searching for your headpiece.

Put yourself on a skin-care programme, and stick to it! If you have problems with your skin, consider consulting a dermatologist or aesthetician to help you clear up any persistent problems and get a recommended programme suited to your skin type.

Make an appointment with a professional makeup artist. This will involve a consultation and trial makeup where you will discuss with your makeup artist what you would like and feel comfortable with. Use this time to play around with different ideas and ensure that you have the perfect look for you. It is a good idea to have a picture of the dress and hairstyle as this can dictate your makeup e.g. vintage dress might mean eyeliner and red lipstick. Having a whole look that works and compliments each part will make the difference from looking well to looking outstanding!

Wedding Fairs are a great way to meet makeup artists and hairdressers. There are often free trials and discounts on the day and you get to see their work beforehand.
