make-up trends - red lipstick

 

Lord & Berry Expert Make-up Artist Elkie Phillips explains how blushing brides can create the hottest make-up trends for the summer season.  Tight-lining

Tight-lining is a way of applying eyeliner so close to your lashes it gives the illusion of naturally thick and dark lashes. This especially useful for people with less lashes than most or to give that extra dimension to an everyday look.  To achieve this look I recommend a good waterproof pencil eyeliner such as Lord & Berry Smudgeproof eyeliner in Black and also a deep pigmented Kohl eyeliner such as Lord & Berrys Couture Kajal pencil eyeliner.

Tips for Finding the Right Beauty Therapist for Your Wedding Day

Your wedding is by far one of the biggest days of your life and there is an awful lot of pressure on the bride to look her very best - not a hair out of place, not a blemish in sight and not a single chipped nail on her fingers or toes. For many women, this can mean numerous visits to beauty salons and hairdressers from as early as 12 months before the wedding. But can you be sure that the professional beautician you choose is the right person for the job?

Appointments

Be prepared! Book all beauty appointments well in advance. This will ensure you get a spot with your preferred hair dresser or beautician. There is nothing worse than being disappointed with a treatment, especially before your big day.

On your wedding day you’ll be smiling from the moment you wake up, until the carriages arrive for your guests at midnight, so you’ll want to ensure your teeth are up to the challenge. Not only can that, feeling confident every time you smile transform your wedding photos into memories you’ll treasure forever.

However, professional dental whitening procedures can cost the earth, and can also cause tooth-sensitivity long after treatment.

Kerry Capewell, Hair Colour Expert advice for brides

 

Kerry Capewell, Hair Colour Expert for the UK Hair Colour Helpline (0845 601 8129) has this advice for brides in the lead up to the big day:

"Try and keep hair as natural as possible - maybe using low lighting/highlighting techniques, in twoshades either lighter or darker than your natural shade, as this creates a more subtle change of colour. Remember, you want to be pleased with your wedding photos for the rest of your life - fashionable shades may look great now but perhaps not in 20 years!
