I’ve been looking around your blog and it has some great beauty tips for general use. I am having a wedding soon though, and was wondering if you had any more Singapore specific bridal beauty tips?
Congratulations on your engagement!
I am sure you’d want to look your best possible on your special day – not to mention, the wedding photos last a lifetime, so it’s vital to look your absolute best.
And I actually do think there are things that Singapore brides need to be careful more of, especially with our weather – the heat and humidity can be tough!
Hair and Make Up
- Keep the whole look classic and timeless. Don’t experiement with any new hair colors or haircuts right before your wedding. Same for makeup – no trying on blue eyeshadow or some lipstick that flakes everywhere on your special day. Take photos of your everything so you will know how you will look in your wedding pictures. (If you hire a bridal makeup artist though – like me, ahem – you should make sure you are 100% happy in your trial, and then on your wedding day you don’t need to worry.)
- Make sure your makeup artist uses products that are sweat proof, waterproof and humidity proof, especially needed for Singapore, or anyone else reading who lives or will have their wedding in a hot, humid climate. This comes down to the makeup artist’s skills in using waterproof and more cosmetic-grade pigmented product, so make sure to find an amazing makeup artist on your big day. Test the makeup after your trial and don’t be afraid to ask your makeup artist about the products, how it will last, etc.
