2015 Brides-to-be should start to think about makeup and hair looks for the upcoming wedding, getting a trial date booked in is essential as you want to see how the look is going to come together on the day. The option to try various hairstyles and makeup looks is ideal because the look you initially loved might not suit your face shape, complexion and hair type.
I advise my brides-to-be, to research hairstyles and makeup looks that they like, put a scrap book/pinterest together on what they think goes with the theme and style of the wedding, wedding dress,wedding venue. The overall look must compliment every aspect of the day. I can then help create the perfect look for the bride and the bridesmaids as well as mums.
So really, if you’re getting married in the Spring/Summer you need to be having a trial soon (next few weeks) if you haven’t already! This will allow you enough time to prepare your hair and skin so it’s at its best for your special day when all eyes are on you. contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your trial.
Book your wedding hair and makeup before the end of December 2014 and get 10% off your booking cost, this includes he trial too. To find out more contact Shahnaz at email@example.com 07790 012769
Such a great feeling knowing that you helped make the brides day even more special
Here’s what one of my lovely brides from July this year has to say about her hair and makeup for her wedding day.
Let’s face it, as we get older we can no longer get away with the things we once did for example drinking on a school night, skipping on sun cream and essential skincare and for most women like me, getting away with wearing zero makeup.
But what are you supposed to do when you’ve got kiddies to look after, a household to keep in shape and a busy work schedule to juggle, finding time to yourself is impossible. Well I’ve put together a quick 2 Min No-makeup Makeup routine especially designed for busy-mums or those who can spare very little time on their makeup in the mornings.
Step 1 – dab a little concealer under the eyes (or where needed)
Step 2 – a large kabuki brush apply a thin layer of mineral foundation (or liquid)
Step 3 – using an angled brush apply black/brown shadow to fill brows
Step 4 – using same brush apply a little of the shadow close to the lash line (or pencil)
Step 5 – apply a little mascara
Step 6 – Dust blush or bronzer on the face (concentrating on cheeks)
Step 7 – apply lipstick or gloss of your choice
Quick and easy, you’ll feel awake and ready to face the world!

Receiving feedback from clients is always great. Here’s a screen shot of a recent clients testimonial;
Olive Oil & Salt Body Scrub
Here’s a natural way of exfoliating and preparing the skin for the spring/summer months. These basic ingredients can be found in almost all kitchen cupboards, though having the best ingredients you can afford does make a difference. Try to use extra virgin Olive Oil and sea salt (not vegetable oil and table salt!)
Preparation time is minutes and the results are amazing, use this scrub once every two weeks or as needed. You can substitute the salt for raw cane sugar if you have sensitive skin.
½ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons rock salt/sugar
Mix the ingredients in a small bowl, mix into an almost past like consistency. You will need to crush the salt with a pestle so the mixture is easy to handle and rub into the skin.
Standing in the shower apply the mixture directly onto dry skin and massage lightly (don’t over scrub) rinse off with warm water. Your skin should feel as smooth as silk.
There are many oils and salts to choose from so why not experiment till you find the right one for you!
