Let's talk Bridal Beauty Ladies! I would say 95% of Brides hire Hair & Makeup Artists for their Wedding Day! If you're like me, I have no idea how to pick the right color foundation, how to apply false lashes and what lip color works best with my skin tone, let alone my wedding dress! I definitely needed professional Beauty help on my Wedding Day! Here are some tips I learned for finding the right Hair & Makeup Artist for you, especially for a Kauai Wedding!
- Schedule a Hair & Makeup Trial
Ladies, THIS IS A MUST!! If you are having a destination Wedding on Kauai and you've never met your Beauty Vendor, you have to schedule a trial with her! Make sure you feel comfortable with her makeup style,the products she uses and her overall vibe. Doing a trial will allow you to see how you will look in the exact hair and makeup style you have dreamed about while planning your Wedding! Plus, if there are things you don't like about it, you can address it then and there, rather than on Wedding Day.
- If possible, schedule your hair & makeup trial on the same day as your Dress Fitting
If your Bridal Gown location is in the same area as your Beauty Trial, try and schedule those appointments on the same day! That way, you can see what your Bridal Beauty will look like, in your Wedding Dress!
- Healthy Skin
In order to achieve that Bridal Glow, make sure you are taking the necessary steps to have Healthy Skin months prior to your Wedding Day! Whether it is routine facials with your esthetician, making sure you're cleansing your face on a regular basis or something as easy as staying hydrated, you want to make sure you prep your skin ahead of time prior to Wedding Day to achieve flawless results.
- Stay Hydrated!
I'll say this one again - Stay Hydrated! I found that the more I drank water, the smoother my skin looked! It was that easy! Booze dehydrates your skin, so don't drink too much the week of your Wedding or else you will see the result on your face!
- Get Plenty of Sleep
Why was Sleeping Beauty so gorgeous? Because she slept all the time!! Getting plenty of sleep allows your body to rest and regenerate, giving you that well rested look on Wedding Day!
- The Best Version of Yourself
Lastly, ask your Hair & Makeup Artist to give you a look that is the Best Version of Yourself! Don't cake that makeup on! It's hot here in Kauai and trust me, your face will literally fall off in this humidity. You don't need a lot of makeup to look beautiful! Keep it light and make sure we can still see your skin!
