Promote your business with weddings tasmania
When planning a wedding, there’s no doubt costs can start to mount rapidly; but beauty is one area where brides on a budget can afford to save a few pennies if they’re savvy.
Here are some tricks of the trade that will have you looking a million dollars for less than $100.
1. First of all, assess whether it will be more economical to do your own make-up or hire a make-up artist to do it for you. If you already have a comprehensive make-up collection, then doing it yourself won’t set you back much at all. However, if you’re a bit of a make-up novice, the advantage of having a professional is that he or she will provide all of the necessary products, the cost of which is part of their service fee.
2. If you have decided to hire a make-up artist, try asking friends or family if they know of a recently graduated make-up artistry student (preferably with some raw talent!). They would be thrilled to have wedding pictures to add to their portfolio. If you are specific about what you want (providing photos torn for magazines of looks you love is always a good idea), they should be able to create the look you want for a fraction of the cost of a seasoned artist. The same applies for a hairstylist.
3. If you don’t already follow a skincare regime, it is important to start one at least a month before the wedding, so that your skin is looking its best. Cetaphil cleanser is cheap, gentle, suitable for all skin types and comes highly recommended by most Australian dermatologists. Rosehip oil, applied morning and night on your face and décolletage will give you a super hydrated, radiant complexion. Bloom, A’kin and Trilogy versions retail for only $20-$25, and a little goes a long way. Hamilton’s various sunscreen formulas are available at most pharmacies and will keep your skin protected all day long.
4. If you have opted to do your own make-up, the bare minimum is as follows:
5. Whether or not you do your own make-up, you will need a few products to touch up with during the day. Blotting papers are cheaper than powder and do the same job; refreshing and mattifying the complexion without disrupting your make-up. Also, keep your lipstick with you to refresh your lip and cheek colour.
6. It’s all in the details. Don’t forget to paint your nails the night before. Revlon’s Sheer Nude is chic and elegant. Finish with Sally Hansen’s topcoat to prevent chips and enhance longevity.
