Your Bridal Beauty Countdown

As we countdown the days to Vancouver's Premier Bridal Fashion Event (have you marked Style & Strut, January 22nd, on your calendar yet?), let's countdown your Bridal Beauty routine leading up to your walk down the aisle!

6 months before

Hire a hairstylist
Audition stylists until you find one you love; ask friends and fellow brides for recommendations.

NOTE: Now's the time to try something new, like highlights, and book your appointment for your wedding day.

Schedule a makeup artist
If your hairstylist does not offer makeup, ask for their recommendations, talk to other brides, or inquire at your favourite cosmetics counter or salon.

NOTE: Request references and ask to see photos of recent work.

Clear your skin
To improve your complexion, consider monthly facials and treatments like fruit-acid peels, which refresh skin's outer layer.

NOTE: Sensitive skin? Try microdermabrasion, a form of exfoliation that uses tiny crystals.

3 months before

Target areas
Exposing your shoulders, arms, or decolletage? Do two sets of 10 to 12 push-ups every other day to define these areas.

Shape your brows
Visit a specialist (the Bombay Brow Bar experts will be onsite in the Style Lounge!), especially if you want to reshape your brows.

NOTE: Go for follow-ups every three weeks.

Check back tomorrow to continue the countdown!

We promise to inspire, inform & indulge!
