Wedding Makeup Prep: Moisturize for Radiant Skin
As a Bride to be you might be starting to consider what type of hair and makeup look you want to create on your wedding day. Regardless of style choice there are a few things that I advise all my brides to be doing, to help get their skin in the best possible condition ready for their wedding makeup prep.
The Importance of Skin Preparation for Bridal Makeup
It’s no secret that the key to good makeup, is good skin. If there is a good base for the products then your make up will undoubtedly look even better. Skin that is well looked after will work with your makeup, rather than against it. There are a few key things that your bridal makeup artist might suggest to you depending on your own skin type but one of the most important ones is always to ensure your skin is moisturised.
Key Considerations for Effective Moisturizing
Now some people, especially those with oily skin, tend to skip this step thinking that they don’t need it but unfortunately that’s simply not the case. Oily skin often over produces the oils your skin is lacking which is why a good skincare routine is really important, especially in the run up to your wedding day.
Hydration, Radiance, and Smooth Skin: The Benefits of Moisturizing
Here are three important points to consider when it comes to moisturising :
- Hydration is key. By moisturising your skin, you can help to keep it hydrated, which can help to prevent dryness, flakiness, and other skin problems. This is especially important if you have naturally dry skin.
- A healthy glow. Moisturising can help to give you a healthy, radiant glow. This is because moisturisers can help to boost circulation and improve skin tone, which can make your complexion look brighter and more even.
- Smooth skin. By moisturising regularly, you can help to keep your skin soft and smooth. This can be especially important if you plan to wear a sleeveless or backless dress, as dry, rough skin can be noticeable, uncomfortable and distracting.
Incorporating Moisturizing into Your Daily Skincare Routine
A few basic ways to incorporate this into your daily routine might look something like this:
- Drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out.
- Using a gentle, moisturising cleanser to wash your face each day.
- Be sure to remove any makeup properly before bed.
- Apply a moisturiser with SPF each morning and a rich night cream before bed.
Consulting a Specialist for Your Wedding-Ready Skin
If you’re still not sure exactly how to get your skin looking it’s best for your big day then this is something we can certainly discuss at your preview session. If you have any concerns about your skin then make an appointment to see a skin specialist or dermatologist who will be able to look at things in much more detail and help you create a skin care routine and plan to get your skin wedding ready!

The Year of the Relaxed Bride
2023 was certainly the year of the relaxed bride. Often I’d hear things like ‘ I want it to look casual’ or ‘I don’t want it too tight or fussy ’. A boho wedding is a perfect choice for those who love a relaxed and free-spirited vibe. When it comes to choosing your boho wedding hairstyle, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you look your best on your big day.
Choosing the Perfect Boho Wedding Hairstyle
First and foremost, consider the overall theme and style of your wedding. A boho wedding is all about being natural and free, so you want your hairstyle to reflect that. Loose, flowing waves or messy braids are both great options for a boho wedding. You may also want to consider adding some flowers or other natural elements to your hair to complete the look.
Matching Your Hairstyle to Your Dress and Accessories
Next, think about your dress and accessories. Your hairstyle should complement your dress rather than compete with it. If you have a dress with intricate details or a high neckline, then a simple hairstyle may be the best option. If your dress is more simple, then you can afford to be a bit more creative with your hairstyle.
Enhancing Your Hair with Braids and Twists
Adding braids and twists to a textured hairstyle can really help show off any colours you have in your hair too. Adding dimension to hair that is all one colour helps to give the hair some extra detail and can even make fine hair appear thicker and fuller.
Considering Your Hair Type and Length
Finally, consider your hair type and length. Some hairstyles work better with certain hair types and lengths, so it’s important to choose a hairstyle that will work well with your hair. Pinterest is a great place to go for information but be sure to try an find styles that are similar in length and colour to what you already have. If you have short hair but love the long flowing braided wave styles then consider adding some extensions to create a more boho look. If you already have long hair, then you have more options, including braids, twists, and updos.
Creating a Beautiful Boho Wedding Hairstyle
In summary, when choosing a boho wedding hairstyle, think about the overall theme and style of your wedding, your dress and accessories, and your hair type and length. With these factors in mind, you can create a beautiful and natural hairstyle that will complement your boho wedding perfectly.
