Don’t be afraid to mix your own products with the makeup artist’s
“Bring your favourite makeup items from your collection, and don’t be afraid to ask the makeup artist to use certain items that you’re attached to and comfortable with” – Allie
Your wedding day is NOT the time to experiment
“Because I have very sensitive skin, it was key to not experiment with new makeup products on the day of the wedding—I didn’t know how my skin would react.” – Dobrina
Steer clear of harsh treatments
“Don’t listen to your mother when she tells you you need to do an at-home glycolic peel two days prior. Your face will end up erupting like Mount Vesuvius.” – Lauren
Keep your makeup looking its best, with the help of your maid of honour
“Put together a little bag of essentials for your maid of honour to hold onto throughout the night for touch-ups.” – Cara
Natural is often best
“I tried to get a fancy Pinterest hairstyle done at my hair trial, and everyone hated it. I just ended up going with a style that was more natural, and I’m so happy I did.” – Katie
Avoid too much makeup
“Don’t use too much makeup. It’s tempting to glam up for the big day, but you still want to look like yourself!” – Meredith
SkinBase Microdermabrasion Facial™
Another thing to consider in the lead up to your big day is microdermabrasion. A SkinBase Facial can help ensure skin looks radiant and naturally beautiful on your special day which can really help with confidence, especially when it comes to the wedding pics!
The SkinBase microdermabrasion Facial™ works by intensely exfoliating and resurfacing the skin. During the facial, a fine jet of abrasive crystals gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer and a vacuum action lifts away the debris, stimulating the blood flow and encouraging collagen and elastin formation that results in firmer, revitalised and youthful looking skin. Acne scars are reduced, fine lines and wrinkles become less obvious and dull and tired skin is completely banished – sometimes after just one treatment.
Effects are usually seen after the first treatment, with ongoing improvements seen week after week during a course. Your SkinBase therapist will advise you on the number of treatments during your consultation session which depends on a number of factors such as severity of acne scarring, size and depth of the vessels and the location to be treated.
