To get the best beauty results for your big day, the key is to start early! Amber Budd of Amber Budd Atelier breaks down your ultimate 6 month beauty plan. Your wedding photographs will be around much longer than the prep time suggested, so why not make the extra effort to glow?
• Brow Game – Let’s be honest, brows are a huge part of how we look. Have you seen the photo-shopped images of celebs without their eyebrows? Yikes. If yours have started looking a bit thin or heck, maybe they’re a little too thick; find yourself a reputable brow artist. and start your monthly maintenance now, not two months from now. Your brow artist should be someone who has advanced training. A well trained artist will customize a brow wax to your beautiful face shape and features, not a cookie cutter stencil shape. They’ll teach you to fill them in properly or get you set up with some growth serum so you’ll have the best brows on the block.
• Legs, Underarms and Brazilians, Oh My! – Yep, we’re still talking waxing. When you’re a frenzied bride-to-be, keeping your hair removal game on point is often the first thing to go. Don’t let this be you. Get your waxes on your calendar now (every 4- 6 weeks) and you’ll be hair free and ready for the big day without even thinking about it.
• Sexy Skincare – Are you noticing a trend here? What bride doesn’t want glowing, sexy, beautiful skin, lit from within? I’ve never met one, so I’ll assume you want those things too. Here’s your how-to guide: See a licensed esthetician, stat. They’ll be able to set up a plan for your skin to achieve maximum results in the time allotted. You’ll want to see them about once a month leading up to the wedding with a plan set in place ahead of time so you’ll know what to expect with each appointment. Need basic skin maintenance and awesome professional level exfoliation? Basic facials are for you. Need some retexturing, maybe some dark spot lightening or scar reduction? You may be a good candidate for peels or microdermabrasion, but no one can tell you that besides your esthetician, so make this a priority.
