Your Guide To Wedding Day Beauty Prep

You’re one step closer to your big day and there’s a lot of preparation in need of taking place, therefore, we have come up with a step-by-step guide to ensure your looking your best on the most unforgettable day. 

Glowing Skin Secrets

Skincare is the base of every airbrushed makeup look and needs to be mastered before your wedding day to keep you glowing from day all the way through to the night. The first essential step is one not to be forgotten: the art of exfoliation. Exfoliating once, or twice a week in the lead up to the day will ensure all dead skin cells are removed and will result in less dreaded-breakouts, great right? I would suggest using the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant for a smooth, evened-out skin tone.  

The next step is this brilliant moisturiser from Charlotte Tilbury – Charlotte’s Magic Cream. This product will transform your skin, whilst locking in the much-needed moisture to protect your skins’ layers and elasticity before the big day. 

It is also essential to invest in a face serum, I use Glossier’s Super Glow, at just £24, this vitamin c-infused serum will leave your skin nourished and glowing – with overnight results, you will wake up with silky, smooth skin that serves as an excellent base for stunning wedding day makeup. 

Haircare Steps You Can’t Afford to Skip

The second biggest part of your wedding look? – and no, I am not talking about the dress: your hair. The hairstyle you choose for your special day will set and complete the whole outfit, but there’s nothing worse than seeing split ends, dull, or brittle hair through the camouflage of a beautiful up-do, therefore we need to tend to the hair care first. 

Firstly: hair mask, hair mask, hair mask. An essential for healthy-looking hair, a hair mask will go all the way to replenish the fibres in your hair, whilst protecting your hair from damage at the same time. I have religiously used a life-changer from Coco and Eve, which is sulphate and cruelty free. This hair mask is just £14 and will deeply condition your hair – making you wedding-day-ready. 

For an extra condition, a must-have to lock in your hair’s moisture is this gem from Milkshake – the Leave-In Conditioner Spray. Apart from smelling fabulous, this conditioner promises instant hydration, is suitable for all hair types and is richly formulated in beneficial vitamins to protect and care for your locks. 

Makeup Tips for That Flawless Finish

Priming is arguably the most essential step for that picture-perfect makeup finish you want on your wedding day – and here’s to help achieve it. Look no further than this miracle formula from Bobbi Brown: the Vitamin Enriched Face Base, a primer and moisturiser all-in-one, including ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and shea butter; your skin will be plumped and moisturised ready for your makeup look. 

Next is to illuminate. There is nothing better than a natural glow under your makeup look, keeping you radiant throughout the day – GlowMotions Copacabana Bronze will guarantee this. Less is definitely more with this product and as a little goes a long way, apply this product after priming, but before foundation for a promised long-lasting glow throughout the day and night. 

Finally, setting spray! No makeup look is complete without this, as it really does make it last. The Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray from Charlotte Tilbury will promise to keep your makeup in place for 16 hours, which includes pore-blurring and smoothing effects, made with aloe vera, Japanese green tea and aromatic resin – the perfect combination to instantly set your look in stone.
