We caught up with Scotland’s bridal beauty experts, who were happy to share their top tips on how to look your best on your daughter’s big day.
Primers give skin a smoother texture, make fine lines less obvious and plump the skin. Lining your lips is a must, and filling in your brows is essential for a camera-ready look. – Angela Mills of Make-Up by Angela
Consider getting a professional make-up artist for the big day – you can have your trial with the bride. If you’d prefer to do it yourself, visit a make-up counter beforehand to get advice. – Stacey Campbell of Jaks Hair and Beauty
Create a good base for eyeshadow by prepping first with MAC’s Paint in Bare Canvas (£15). Don’t use too much powder on the skin as this can set in fine lines. – Kylie Macbeth of The Aisle
Now that you’ve got a wedding to prepare for, you have the perfect opportunity to quit smoking. The sound of wedding bells is often quickly followed by another happy sound: the pitter-patter of tiny feet. You’ll want to spend as much time as possible with your grandkids, so consider replacing your ciggies with their less harmful electronic replacements or give up altogether. Studies show that it’s never too late to quit – stopping at any age very quickly reduces the risk of dying. As well as the health benefits, your skin, nails, hair and teeth will all look better, so you can strut down the aisle, feeling and looking great! VL1M Menthol eCig Starter Kit, £9.99, Vapourlites.
