Getting your skin wedding ready

How many times have we heard the dreaded word “breakout” being uttered from a brides mouth?  Too many!   

It’s common to have a breakout right before the big day.  Almost like Murphy’s law.  However, with the right skin care regime you can keep those pesky spots away.

-Start by getting a facial a few months before the wedding to help clear out any blockage and impurities.  

-Make sure to go easy on your skin, don’t start trying any new products especially with active ingredients, course exfoliates or fragrances.

-keep it simple.  Three basic products are all you need: A cleanser at night to remove make-up and debris, a toner suitable for sensitive skin (alcohol free) and a moisturizer.

-Drink those 8 glasses of water a day.

-Wear and reapply sunscreen with SPF 15 everyday. 

-Try your best  to keep your fingers away from your face and keep your phone screen clean.

Lash Lesson

IMG_7383.JPG

You might not wear make-up on a daily basis, you may wear very little or none at all but on your wedding day, it’s a totally different story.

Your wedding day is coined “the best day of your life”, you’ll have pictures to document every moment to look back on for a lifetime.  You will probably see friends and family that you haven’t seen in ages or possibly be meeting people for the first time.  This often means that you will want to look better than you ever have and especially top notch in your photos. So even if you don’t ever wear make-up, you’ll be putting on the glitz ; ) for your big day.  

What looks natural in pictures will be a little more glamorous in real life.  Maybe a brighter lip, potentially a bit more coverage on your skin and most definitely LASHES!!  

Okay, we said it!  Definitely lashes.  Even though it is an optional service, us Glitz Galz believe they are essential for brides and bridal parties.  They make a huge difference in photos but still can look natural.  Lashes also enhance your eyes which are “the windows to your soul” in which your future hubby will be gazing into.

Lashes are especially great for the moms (MOB/MOG) because they give a bit of a lift as well as some definition and extra volume. We use  a “Demi lash”  for subtlety and they LOVE the results.

if you have never worn lashes and don’t feel like you want to, reconsider for your big day OR at least give them a try for your trial.  We’d be willing to put money on you deciding to wear them and finding a whole new appreciation for them to boot.

believe us when we say that wearing more make-up than you ever would normally wear (including lashes) makes a beautiful impact and is undeniably worth it.  You will have the photos of your big day forever and you will look perfectly fabulous in them.    

Almost all brides and bridal parties that we work with end up wearing lashes and never look back.  Try them, you’ll love them.  

We know make-up and hair.

We make your memories beautiful!

 

Primping for PROM

IMG_7281.JPG

Prom time is a monumental event in life.  The end of one chapter and the beginning of the next.  Maybe it’s the first big dress-up gala for the majority of teens?  Maybe it’s the most glamorous evening of your life so far?  Maybe you’ve been planning the details of this big date for ages?...If you’re like us, it’s HUGE!  

The dress, shoes and accessories are top of the list, but let’s not forget about completing the look with make-up and hair.  Having a professional make-up application and hairstyle really pulls everything together.  It also makes a difference in photos.  

Here at Glitz Galz, we’ve put together some prom beauty packages to appeal to everyone. We included  spray tanning and false lashes for optimum glam or individual services for those who just want a little something. We’re experts in enhancing natural beauty and making people look like the best version of themselves.  Even the slightest bit of make-up and hair styling has a major impact.  

Prom night is a time to shine!  Let us help you highlight it ; )

For a healthy complexion, we are adding our favourite “Playful” blush to the apples of the cheeks for a romantic flushed rosy cheek look.

Here comes the drama...Bold lips are making a statement this year!  Yes, this is higher maintenance but totally worth it.  We have two favourites we use: “Plateau” and “Russian”. A classic plum shade and of course, a beautifully flattering red. Glitz Galz have our own line of products available for sale for touch ups.  With this trend, touch ups are not optional.

Why do a trial run?

FullSizeRender.jpg

There are many reasons to book a trial for make-up and hair before the wedding day.  Even if you are extremely trusting, not picky and very easygoing it’s still a good idea to have a trial first.

Here’s why: 

•You can meet the make-up and hair team ahead of time, knowing that they will play a part in your big day, setting the tone before you walk down the aisle.

•You will have the chance to try the look and make alterations in advance.  Time does not permit for this on the day and it could be quite stressful if sudden changes need to be made.

 •You have a chance to get opinions from friends and family.

•An opportunity to see how the make-up and hair wear throughout the day/evening and how it feels. 

 •The make-up and hair team can work more efficiently and be most effective if they know exactly what they are doing going in to it. 

 •A bridal trial is the perfect opportunity to get engagement photos taken or for your bridal shower to make the most out of having your hair and makeup done.

 •Although it’s rare, it’s always a good idea to test out the products ahead of time to eliminate the chance of an allergic reaction on your big day.

Most brides do book a trial but it’s fascinating that not every bride does.  

Your pictures are the memories you’ll have for a lifetime.  How you look and feel in them is our number one priority.

We make your memories beautiful!

A time and place for Pinterest

We love to pin and we love gathering wedding day beauty goals.

 Inspiration is great but always aim to look like you.

Inspiration is great but always aim to look like you.

The most exciting part of being engaged (aside from knowing that you are going to marry the man of your dreams and share a life together) is creating a Pinterest account full of all things you love for wedding day inspiration.  Our favorite categories are, of course, make-up and hair.  We love seeing all the fabulous pics of bridal looks in every style.  During wedding season we see repeats of popular pinned items for the year and are asked to recreate these looks many times.  Sometimes it works and other times it’s just not possible.  As helpful and amazing as it is to know the look you are going for, being set on replicating a picture can be a great set up for disappointment.  You are unique!  There is only one you!  The girl in the pics you love isn’t you or the woman your fiancé is excited to marry.  She doesn’t have your skin, eyes, nose, lips, coloring....or your hair: body, length, texture colour.  Often pictures are enhanced and touched up and for hair, massive amounts of hair pieces and pins are added.  Have an idea, have some inspiration, have a grand old time creating a Pinterest board but realize that you are fabulous and one of a kind and would really look amazing if you enhanced your natural beauty.  Don’t be fooled by the smoke and mirrors in photographs.  On your wedding day, we love to make you look like the best version of yourself and that can be as subtle or as dramatic and YOU want! 💞
