 Bridal makeup and hairdo

Bridal Makeup and Hairdo Service

If уоu ѕtill don't hаvе any makeup artist preference, you will need to start studying a list of freelance makeup artist portfolio and choose your favourite based on their previous work. It will be more helpful if you can see a comparison of before after makeup before scheduling a trial session. During the trial, some makeup artist will try on half face so you get a better comparison. This is usually more effective so you get to see the work quality.

You might want to look out for the makeup artist who can create various hairstyles for different length of hair. Even if you might not be doing exactly the same hairstyle similar to their previous clients, this shows that the makeup artist has more hands-on experience. Every bride has their own preference when it comes to fashion and outlook. The final makeup depends on many attributes such as gown design, hair length, or even skin tone. Only experienced makeup artist will be able to handle different type of situations and provide more ideas in overall style matching.

Once you are satisfied with the trial makeup service, check with your consultant if they have other freelance makeup artists to recommend to your friends and family members. Sharing is caring! It will be much easier to arrange this way to help ease your friends and family workload too.

 home facial treatment

Home Facial SPA

When there is too much going on, consider having a home facial SPA to help you maintain a glowing skin while saving tons of time traveling to the beauty salon. Traffic jam and parking is a nuisance in city areas and you do not have the time luxury! You might want to check on your budget since the beauty salon often will ask you to sign up for unnecessary packages.

Let your beautician know your skin type so they will advice how many facial treatments are needed before your wedding. If you are having rashes, acne or scarring skin, you may want to sign up for at least three sessions of facial treatment before your wedding. If you do not have a major skin problem and has been following up facial on a regular basis, scheduling a facial treatment on the same week of your wedding is good enough. This helps to prep your skin well for the actual makeup on your wedding day. If you are going for a dermastamp or microdermabrasion treatment, you may want to start early because the after effect will leave your face red. Follow up with hydration and soothing facial treatment to prevent further reaction.

Eating well and staying hydrated is important to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Try using a facial massager at home to increase absorption of ampoule or serum into your skin few days before your wedding. Your skin will need all the skincare nutrition to promote a good complexion.

Eye and Lips Embroidery

Embroidery treatment is completely optional for your wedding but it can definitely accentuate your facial features! The eyebrow and lips embroidery is a process of ‘tattoo’ using microblading to implant pigment beneath the surface of the brows or lip to give it a fuller, bolder look. It is a common beauty treatment in Malaysia where people can get a more natural looking eyebrow or lips color. Getting embroidery gives your eyebrow the natural thickness and volume whereas lips embroidery gives you red lips even without lipstick. Now you no longer have to constantly touch up with lipstick even after eating.  A lip balm is good to go!

If you feel like getting your embroidery, it’s best to get it done 2 months ahead of your wedding as it will take time to heal and recover to the natural looking self. Choose the right embroidery specialist with experience and remember to check out their previous portfolio. Make sure they use new disposable needles every time. They will also draw the shape, alignment, and color before they begin the tattooing process. Touch ups are usually provided one month after the first treatment. So enjoy your embroidery and now you are ready to strut down the aisle like a princess!
