Your East Midlands Wedding - February/March 2023 (Issue 54)

Q&A Beauty Look your big-day best with top expert advice SMUDGE PROOF I find my make-up smudges during the day. How do I ensure it stays in place on my wedding day? Book a morning trial with a recommended make-up artist at least six months before your wedding. Explain your concerns about cosmetics smudging so they can use products to suit your skin type as well as style. An early trial allows you to enjoy the look all day while seeing if it stands the test of time – literally! Your make-up artist can also recommend products to purchase before the wedding to touch up your look throughout the day. Ensure you have a responsible bridesmaid to keep the items close by. Bethany Wells | Bethany Rose Weddings OH-SO GLAMOROUS I’d like to give my bridal look an extra touch of glamour. What would you suggest that’s hot for spring weddings? It’s all about sleek styles in 2023, and nothing says glamour more! Here are a few options for red-carpet-ready looks. First up is a super sleek low bun that’s tight to the head and has plenty of shine. There won’t be a hair out of place with this simplistic style. You can also create a softer, voluminous and more romantic version, but ensure to keep the look simple. The super glam Hollywood wave trend is going nowhere and is perfect if you wish to wear your hair down. Slick one side behind your ear and add sparkle with a slide or stick-on pearls/crystals for a modern touch. You could also go for big, soft and voluminous waves for a softer version with added drama.
