Every bride wants to look her best when the big day finally arrives, so we’re teaming up with local beauty experts to get the inside scoop on all things bridal beauty. We recently sat down with talented ladies at AnnElyse Salon and Spa to get their expert advice and bridal beauty tips. Check out her helpful advice below and stay tuned to the blog as we share more bridal beauty tips from local experts!
What are the advantages of doing a hair/makeup trial run before the big day?
Doing a hair and makeup trial run helps your special day go smoothly. It’s so difficult to know exactly what style you’ll like or if that all time favorite smokey eye fits your personality. Doing a run through helps the bride have a more comfortable relationship with the stylist that will execute her dream look on her big day.
What advice do you have for a bride trying to find the right look for her day?
Finding the right look all depends on you and your wedding. Having the right beauty team to help you figure out exactly what you are looking for is key. Are you a boho bride or a classic bride? Do you want to look sleek and polished or natural and traditional? Having the right beauty look that is cohesive with your wedding will just help set the tone for your dream day. Just remember to try to stay “you” on your wedding day. Don’t go for something completely different than your normal sense of style.
What beauty product should every bride have with her at all times?
Lip color since your makeup artist won’t be there all night to touch you up, and you can never have too much hairspray on hand!
How does a bride choose between an updo or loose curls?
What beauty trends do you predict for fall/winter?
Fall is here and winter is around the corner! We have a feeling our brides will be all over those deep shades of red for their makeup. That plum lip will be all over our insta-feeds! As for hair, the braid will never go out of trend, but more importantly that “fat” braid will be trending! Pancaking your braid gives a elegant touch to a classic style. We predict jewel tones, golds and coppers, and surprisingly are also seeing an upswing in black. Don’t be scared of a fierce winged liner. Also, hair accessories over traditional veils are a more modern yet elegant way to achieve a classic bridal look.
What’s your favorite shade of lipstick?
We love that lipstick has come back full force! Picking a fave. Let’s be honest, WE LOVE IT ALL!
How can a bride keep her hair/makeup looking fresh and flawless throughout her big day?
Everyone wants makeup that stays. Airbrush foundation gives you that flawless look that makes all the difference. We all know there will be tears… Get those eyelash extensions – No need to wear mascara! Your lashes will be on point the day of, the day after and all through your honeymoon.
Any other helpful beauty tips for brides-to-be?
Remember to stay calm, stay true to what YOU want (not your best friend or that instafamous girl you follow), and have fun with this once in a lifetime day!
