So excited to have a fabulous giveaway on the blog today from the lovely Fiona at Simply Indulgent. I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I’m certainly no expert, and far from a role model on how to look after your precious skin, but I have learned a few things about weddings over the years. If you’re recently engaged it’s likely you’re right in the midst of planning and organising. You may be feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed by all the decisions you are having to make. This is exactly the time to start taking better care of your skin. Especially if you want that luminous glow and picture perfect bridal makeup on your wedding day.
When it comes to picture-perfect makeup, the first thing any good makeup artist will tell you is that well hydrated, cleansed and exfoliated skin makes a perfect canvas. Hawke’s Bay makeup artist Candice Dear says, “Beautiful bridal makeup starts with great skin! Seeking advice from a qualified beauty therapist is most advisable. Scheduling regular facials, peels or microdermabrasion is an amazing way to keep your skin in optimum health and to ensure you look your very best in your wedding day photos.”
Of course, investing in an experienced makeup artist is also key. They know what will suit your face, how to make sure it will look beautiful all day and all night and ensure you and your girls feel pampered and special during the getting ready part of the day. I might be biased, but I suggest checking with your photographer for makeup artist referrals as they truly get to see the good from the bad.
Owner of Simply Indulgent Beauty Therapy, Fiona Ritchie, recommends you start your bridal skin programme at least 6 months out to manage any skin concerns you may have and get a good skin care regime in place. Your wedding is the perfect excuse for some extra pampering and to help get you started we are giving one lucky reader a luxury facial treatment valued at $130.00. The winner will receive a voucher from Simply Indulgent for the Image Skincare Luxury Oxygenating Facial. I recently experienced this treatment as a little post-wedding season gift to myself and can totally recommend it!
I’m also excited to share with you here that all new wedding photography clients that book with Linda Baylis Photography between now and September 15th, 2018 will all receive a Simply Indulgent Voucher valued at $100.00. A little extra incentive from me to encourage you to pamper yourself in the build-up to the big day!
