Wedding Day Beauty Count Down...

6 months prior: Start growing hair out, or try a new color.
5 months prior: Get serious about skin care & drink lots of water. If you can do it, get monthly facials by a professional - it will make your makeup application so much smoother and you will need less coverage. It's not a bad idea to have to groom visit the esthetician with you and begin a skin care regim. He can glow too!
4 months prior: Schedule consults with makeup artists.
3 months prior: Experiment with self-tanners for a natural glow.
2 months prior: Have your eyebrows professionally shaped.
1 month prior: Whiten your teeth to add sparkle to your smile.
2 weeks prior: Exfoliate and moisturize for silky smooth skin. (This should be on-going...Start much earlier and having it as a daily routine keeps skin healthy)
1 week prior: Get a bikini wax and splurge on a massage.
1 day prior: Have a professional pedicure and manicure.
Wedding Day: Be sure to schedule enoughtime for your make-up artist to get your make-up done in time for the photographer. Keep this in mind also for the bridal party, if they are also getting makeup done by the same artist. Then, sit back and get gorgeous! Happy Planning!
