Preparing for your make-up & hair appointment

We often get asked, “what do I need to do to prepare for my hair and make-up?”  Whether it’s for the bridal trial, for the big day or having your make-up and hair done for any occasion this is all you should do before to prepare:

•Make sure you remove all traces of make-up including stubborn mascara.   

 •Clean off any traces of make-up remover (no oily residue on skin or especially around the eye area).

•Optional but beneficial: exfoliate gently to remove any dead surface skin.  Your make-up will go on much more evenly and it also gets circulation flowing, making your skin glow.

Moisturize your skin especially if you’re on the drier side.

•Have your eyebrows groomed and all unwanted hair waxed, tweezed, threaded, bleached, whichever you prefer, 2 days before (NO LATER!).

Wash hair the day or night before and allow to either air dry or blow dry nicely.  Keep it clean and not loaded up with product.

Some additional tips include:

•Refrain from the temptation to pick at any breakouts.  Allow them to run their course.  They are much easier to cover and much less prone to infection if they are left alone and not popped.

•If you are planning on having hair extensions put in, make sure you have them to apply for your trial and definitely have them colour matched for your hair and professionally cut to appropriate length before your wedding day. 

•If you have any allergies make sure to inform the make-up artist and hair stylist about what products you tend to react to.

false lashes look amazing but we suggest if you’ve never worn them before to give them a trial run before you plan on wearing them to a big event. 

If you have any questions make sure to ask.  We appreciate our clients asking anything they may be unsure about.

Follow these suggestions before your make-up and hair appointment and you’ll be guaranteed superb results.

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!
