Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and one on which you’ll want to look your unequivocal best. For the Asian bride, choosing the right makeup scheme is a vital part of getting the right look. A specialist MUA like Fazila Hajee will always take into account the shape of your face before deciding on a makeup strategy, as well as the theme of the wedding and the colour of your outfit.
But to help your hired professional really get the most out of your natural beauty, it pays to get into the habit of looking after your skin – and this is something you can do all the time once you’ve gotten into the swing of it.
Here are some essential tips to help make sure your skin is the healthiest it can be prior to your bridal makeup session:
Water keeps the skin from drying up, and helps to unclog your pores. So make sure you’re drinking the recommended daily amount (8 glasses), and remember to keep your skin clean and moisturised. Most people find that cleansing their face before bed and first thing in the morning gets the best results.
Staying in the sun too long can burn your skin and cause it to peel, so make sure you don’t cook on those hot summer days. If you stop for a drink or a bite to eat, find somewhere in the shade, and take sunglasses with you so you aren’t forced to squint and crumple your skin.
Stay Away from Toxins
Smoking doesn’t do your skin any good, and neither do fatty or greasy foods. Eating a diet which is high in fat can clog up your pores, and make spots more likely to appear. So, in the months leading up to your wedding and beyond, ensure you maintain a healthy balanced diet.
Stress and lack of sleep can take their toll on the skin, and cause it to age and wrinkle prematurely. Always aim to get the recommended eight hours a night, and if something in your life is causing you stress, try to get to the root of the problem so you aren’t kept awake at night.
