It’s unlikely that anyone is more excited about your wedding day than you, mainly because you’ve been planning your special day in your head for the last 20 years. Finally all those practise walks you’ve made in front of the mirror to get the speed down the aisle just right are about to pay off, the towel on your head is in fact now a veil and the shoe you’ve been using as a bouquet has transformed into a beautiful creation of roses and peonies.
Your wedding day is one of the most precious days of your life and you want to feel confident in your own skin. Nobody wants to wake up on the morning of their wedding with a spot the size of a small iceberg on the end of their nose or big dark circles under their eyes from all the sleepless nights you’ve experienced due to excitement. So the truth is, sometimes we have to give our skin a little helping hand along the way so we look like a golden goddess on our special day.
So here are a few top tops for your day:
1 - Prepare your skin
We all want to have flawless skin on our special day and let’s be honest, photos from the wedding are going to be around for many years to come, but if we decide to only start looking after skin a few days before our wedding, it’s going to be a little too late. We need to get a good skin care regime in place many months before our big day, so you look and feel the best version of yourself. And this means no excuses! If you’re tired, who cares, if you’re feeling slightly hungover or simply too lazy, that’s just no excuse for not cleansing and moisturising religiously. Trust us, you’ll definitely thank us. So the first thing you need to do is give your skin a quick assessment and choose the best moisturiser, cleansers and mask for your skin type.
2 - Create the perfect canvas
Reducing sun spots, treating discolouration, blemishes, acne and open pores is essential for flawless skin. We recommend Be Clear serum. Be Clear works to refine open pores, leaves skin feeling plump and dewy and clears and evens skin tone – winner! Priming your skin before adding your foundation is also a must, so give It’s All A Blur a try.
3 - Glow like a Greek goddess
Many of us would rather not have skin so pale that we are camouflaged into our dress, but the important thing is that you don’t leaving tanning until the night before your wedding. Prepare your skin by exfoliating and body brushing in the many months before your wedding and apply and build your tan regularly using Sol Mate, so you are confident in application. Sol Mate is the perfect addition as it’s a breakthrough tanner, which gives a natural, buildable tan without the risk of streaking, blotches or uneven tone. Plus it can be reapplied every other day to keep the colour longer or deepen the tone. Maybe the thought of a fake tan just isn’t for you and you’d rather create your glow using Bronzelicious. Bronzelicious is a soft matte, silky smooth bronzer instantly giving skin a naturally gorgeous sun kissed colour. The natural mica base keeps the look sheer and promotes a clean, deep colour and helps deliver excellent payoff and bond with the skin. Bronzelicious is water resistant, effectively repelling water, humidity and wear, so perfect if the tears start to flow or you get a little bit flustered during your day.
4 - Conceal and Camouflage
You’re bound to be a little bit stressed in the build up to the wedding and this mixed with unimaginable excitement can lead to a few sleepless nights. Eliminate dark circles under your eyes by using our luxury Eye Truffle. It reflects light to make your eyes appear brighter and contains the breakthrough phyto-endorphin HAPPYBELLE-PE – the same ingredient which gives Skin Truffle the ability to put a ‘happy news’ glow on the complexion whilst treating dark circles and puffiness, reduces frown lines and crows feet. This followed by Red Carpet, Glint will create a truly bright eyed look for your day.
