Bridal Make Up and Beauty Covered

Every bride wants to look her best on the biggest day of her life, and quite rightly so. But will all of the make up, beauty and skin regimes on offer, how exactly do you make the best decision for you?

Here are a few beauty must haves, which are sure to leave you looking and feeling great ahead of your big day.

Skin Regime          

There are a few things that you can alter in your beauty regime that are completely free and are so effective and easy to do. The biggest hurdle you will face is stress, stress can bring you out in all kinds of rashes and breakouts so try and remember to keep cool and collected .Hydration is also a big element in keeping your skin crystal clear so try and drink your eight glasses of water daily to keep spots and dry, dull skin at bay and your skin will remain fresh and crystal clear in time for the big day.

The next step is to establish an easy, fuss free regime that is easy to stick to- invest in a skin clearing scrub to wash your face with in the morning like St Ives Apricot Scrub, which does a fantastic job of gently clearing away any dirt that is blocking up your pores and exfoliates any dead cells to leave you with radiant, glowing skin.  Also invest in a soothing scrub for the evening that you can easily introduce to your bedtime routine, this seaweed cleansing facial wash from The Body Shop is the perfect bedtime treat it gently removes any left over make up, impurities and excess oil  which will leave skin looking refreshed and shine free.


Always invest in great moisturiser, Nivea day and nigh moisturiser is great for keeping your skin hydrated and supple. The daytime cream is light and soft so it wont clog your pores up or make your foundation slide. The evening cream is rich in vitamins and works overnight to leave your skin in the best condition and gives it time to rejuvenate.


If you are doing your own make up on the big day, you will know what colours and brands work best for you and your skin, its best to stick to products you know and love, as if you try something new on the big day you risk having a reaction to it. If you are inverting in some new products, give yourself plenty of time to get used to them ahead of the big day.

Invest in a good value primer, a primer will keep your make up in place all day and will hydrate your skin at the same time. MAC’s Prep and Prime skin is the perfect product, keeping your make up in place, whist leaving your skin silky smooth.

Relax, and experiment with different products until you find the perfect regime that works for you, and if all else fails remember to smile, relax and drink plenty of water!
