Beauty Tips For The Beautiful Bride...

It's not just on your special day that you must pamper yourself. Think about the final look you want to achieve and start working on it weeks before the wedding.
Bride Make-up A bride must glow, so your skin is the first place to care for. Use a 3 step skin care regime for best results. Start with a high quality cleanser. If you have worn make-up prior to cleansing, always use remover first. Your skin can be cleansed with a liquid cleanser, soap or face wipes. Follow the instructions closely on whatever product you choose, taking special care to reach all areas of your face and neck.

If using a cleanser, use a 5p-sized amount and apply it using circular motions. Then rinse with warm water and take a soft towel to pat your skin dry. Next you must tone. Pick a toner that matches your skin type. Finally, apply your moisturiser. Follow this regime first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It may take a month to see results, so don't give up after a week.

There isn't a person alive who doesn't look better with a bit of a tan. Sunbeds are an option, but you'll need more than one session for a decent colour, and it's not good for you. A spray tan is safer and only one is necessary. You can do it yourself at home, but it's safer to get the professionals to do it and guarantee a streak-free finish. Don't go crazy though, an orange bride is not a good look!

If you think you could grow your nails naturally for the big day, make sure you see a manicurist at least once before the big day. If not, good false nails are readily available and very convincing. Go for subtle though, 3-inch red talons won't complement your dress. It is important to moisturise your hands daily too, it is all too easy to neglect them.

Bride nails Naturally, you'll want your body to look its best. The classic option is to join a gym to tone up everything. Do this at least 3 months before the wedding and don't give up, you'll look and feel better for it. There are cheat methods obviously, with various wrap treatments available that can temporarily take a few inches off your problem areas, but nothing beats good old fashioned exercise.

Finally, your wedding make-up must be addressed. If you are brave then you can do it yourself, if not there are many wedding make-up services. Some will also do your bridesmaids and mother of the bride. It is important to speak to whoever is doing your make-up and not let them talk you into being made-up in a style you aren't happy with. Most bridal make-up services will meet with you first and do a test session for you to be at ease. If you are going the DIY route with your make-up, subtlety is the key. Unless you've chosen a gothic-theme, don't use to much eye-liner and stick to neutral shades. And ladies, if you are worried about getting a bit emotional at the altar, use 2 coats of waterproof mascara to avoid panda eyes.
