Be sure to drink plenty of water 2 weeks before the wedding until the big day, have eyebrows shaped/waxed/tidied before the big day and finally, hydrate the skin with a hydrating sheet mask the night before the wedding day.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I start with a relaxing skin preparation which includes lavender toner and lavender sheet mask. I let the bride take everything at her own pace and leave plenty of time so nothing feels rushed.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
If the skin starts to look oily, carry blotting papers to blot away the oil and then dust over a small amount of translucent powder, if you don’t have blotting paper you can tear a piece of tissue paper in half till you get a really thin layer and use that to blot away any excess oil. Before touching up lipstick apply a thin layer of lip balm to stop lips cracking.
