BRIDAL GIVEAWAY: 10 Scottish Wedding Show tickets plus their fool-proof guide to looking gorgeous on your special day

By  |  0 Comments

When it comes to your wedding day, every bride wants to look and feel like a bombshell.
But there’s always the fear of a streaky tan, hair dye disasters and some unwelcome blemishes cropping up on the day you’re getting hitched.
After all, it’s the one day when there’s simply no room for beauty mishaps.
With years of experience helping engaged couples plan the wedding of their dreams, The Scottish Wedding Show have teamed up with Styletto Mag heard to help you avoid all wedding catastrophes.
So we’ve brought in the experts to give their guide to a disaster-free beauty regime.

Spray tan two days prior




There’s no room for a Ross from Friends Mississippi moment, so by all means avoid spray tan machines.
Instead, get a spray tan professional to bronze you up for the big day and do a trial run for your dress fitting.
That way you can trust your beautician won’t make you look like an oompa loompa in your wedding pictures and you’ll be able to see how your dress will look on the day.
Also, be sure to book your final spray tan for two days before your wedding – so if disaster strikes, you can get the beloved exfoliating mitt out.


No facials or facemasks the night before





The rookie mistake when it comes to facials or face masks is doing it the day or night before.
When you’re exfoliating or using a pore opening mask, you’re bringing all the dirt and oil to the surface.
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can work wonders for your skin, but it takes several treatments to see results.
Start booking in your facials or begin a dedicated skin routine as far in advance as possible – ideally 6 months prior.
This way your skin will be used to the products and you won’t wake up the morning of with a big old spot or an irritation rash on your face.
Book in your final facial for the week before and be gentle on your skin from then on.


Makeup and hair rehearsals are a MUST




It may seem like a given, but we’ve come across too many brides who have booked in their makeup artist and hair stylist just for the day of the wedding and being utterly disappointed with the finished look.
Sometimes it can take a few hair and makeup trials to find the right look, so avoid winging it.
It may be that you love the way a particular makeup artist does makeup for other clients, but that style doesn’t quite suit you when you see the finished look – and that’s ok!
Your wedding is one of the best days of your life and no bride wants to feel self-conscious, so don’t set yourself up for any surprises.



No big hair colour changes




As well as planning your hair style, plan your hair colour. Sometimes simple is better when it comes to big occasions, in particular your wedding, as those pictures last a lifetime.
No one wants to look back and think ‘who let me dye my hair bright red?’. If you do wish to mix it up for your big day, book in to get your hair done at least six months prior, this way you can see how it looks and if you end up changing your mind, it’s easy enough to dye it back in time, and if you end up loving it, just touch up your roots a few weeks before the day.
