Your Bridal Beauty Countdown Continued...

1 month before

Brighten your smile
First, get a teeth cleaning, even if you're not due for one.

NOTE: Start your whitening routine. Drugstore whiteners, like strips and gels, take about three weeks to work.

Hold a beauty rehearsal
See your hairstylist and makeup artist for trial runs, with your veil and accessories.

NOTE: Take photos so you can recreate the look on your wedding day.

2 weeks before

Cut and colour
Cut your hair two weeks in advance so it won't look too blunt... Have colour touched up now as well to give it time to settle in.

The week of

Smooth skin
Make an appointment to have your eyebrows shaped and other areas, like bikini line and legs, waxed.

Pack an emergency kit
Fill a cosmetics bag with supplies:
  • Nail file
  • Dental floss
  • Breath mints
  • Bobby pins
  • Pressed powder
  • Lipstick
  • Concealer
  • Nail polish
Go for your last appointments
Tan two days ahead of the wedding for the best colour... Results last about a week if you thoroughly exfoliate before application.

In keeping with all things bridal beauty, don't forget that Style & Strut - Vancouver's Bridal Fashion Event - is NEXT weekend, Sunday, January 22nd at the Sutton Place Hotel... See you beautiful brides-to-be there!

We promise to inspire, inform & indulge!
