As Sali Hughes reveals in her beauty book, Pretty Honest, “A Bride should look like herself on the best day ever. Her usual skin tone should be at its most flawless, her go-to special hairstyle at its most perfect, her signature going-out makeup at its most immaculate.”
So how do you make sure that your skin is at its most flawless for your wedding day?
Does this make you feel a bit nervous or even worse – overwhelmed? I’ll admit that I find this a difficult task – achieving that healthy, glowing skin and a nice complexion! Heck, I would love to have that in everyday life too!
You’ll know by reading our blog or Love Letters to your inbox, that I’m always trying things out so that I can recommend what really works with you. You may even wonder why?
WHY? What has this got to do with wedding photography?
Well nothing and everything really.
I’ll be honest and tell you what this really means.
Throughout my teens I had troublesome skin and when ever a tiny spot vanished, the small scar it left behind stayed – for a very long time. The sun would make them darker and even more noticeable. They’d take even longer to disappear. So even when my skin became easier, I had pigmentation marks that wouldn’t fade.
Right in to my early twenties I felt insecure about this and would really try to take care of my skin.
Skin care and makeup has always been interesting for me, and also FUN in a typical girly way, but people feeling their best is something I care about. Not in a shallow way. It’s from a place of not wanting someone to feel like I did about my skin. For you to feel good, and the freedom you feel with that too!
Carefree, enjoying life, enjoying your wedding and not worrying about it – freedom!
Feeling comfortable in your own skin, literally, especially when being photographed and on your wedding day – it doesn’t come easy to everyone. The thought of it makes me want to start a whole action plan! What can I do to make sure my skin as good as it can be?! It feels like a lot of work and pressure.
It’s not a dilemma about what makeup finish should I go for, matte of dewy…
It’s not just about what lipstick colour should I choose…
I wish it was, because that would be fun!
I’m sure I’m not the only woman to have these worries, or the only Bride-to-be. I want to ease anyone else who does worry by sharing things that I find that help to achieve a healthy complexion, the lustrous hair, makeup that feels as wonderful as it looks!
