YOUR HAIR AND MAKE-UP

Test and try: Aim for a look that will last for 10 hours

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents - Top tips ::

WED­DING hair will gen­er­ally have to last for about 10 hours, so it s im­por­tant to chose a hair­style that works for your hair. Make sure you test your hair de­sign be­fore­hand so you know it will last.

Re­cent trends in hair de­sign show brides have been go­ing for a more nat­u­ral look. While curls and frizz should be some­what tamed, nat­u­ral waves run­ning free, paired with some­thing like a flower crown are quite pop­u­lar.

The simple updo is also in fash­ion, creat­ing an ef­fort­less look that is well put to­gether. That doesn’t mean you can t have a bit of fun though. Wrap­ping hair around the bun, braid­ing parts of the bun or leav­ing a few strands free can cre­ate a unique and cre­ative look.

Make sure your hair is sham­pooed the day be­fore so your hair is eas­ier to work with. :: Bring along any head pieces of veils dur­ing the hair trial to make sure they can be in­cor­po­rated into the de­sign. :: If you are colour­ing your hair, make sure you are happy with it for your wed­ding day. You don’t want re­growth to ruin photos. :: Time how long the trial takes so you know how long it will take on the big day. :: Have your hair done first and then your make-up.

What make-up should you wear? Wed­ding make-up should be cho­sen around what suits your face. Ev­ery­body has dif­fer­ent face shapes, skin tone and lip shapes.

Keep­ing things nat­u­ral is a great way to show you. The make-up style you choose should come down to per­sonal pref­er­ence and what you think is best for you.

Air­brush make-up and fake eye­lashes help to em­pha­sise your face and eye­brows.

A nat­u­ral, no make-up look has been one of the biggest trends in re­cent years.

Make sure your skin is clean and ex­fo­li­ated and use a light foun­da­tion to hide any spots.

A matte-brown eye shadow and eye­liner can help em­pha­sise your eyes while keep­ing with the nat­u­ral look, as can a lightly coloured nude lip stick. Berry lips have made a come­back in re­cent years. From plum colours to bur­gundy, there are many dif­fer­ent shades to chose from. Be­fore pick­ing a colour though, it’s best to test your un­der­tones.

If gold jewellery is what looks best on you, you have yel­low un­der­tones, if sil­ver looks bet­ter you have pink un­der­tones.

Peo­ple with yel­low un­der­tones should wear more bur­gundy, deep red and ma­roon shades, while peo­ple with pink un­der­tones should wear more deep plum and oxblood berry shades.
