Here at Autelier, we understand that wedding preparation can be a stressful process with lots of preparation to be done. But not to worry, here are some helpful guidelines to keep in mind to ensure that you will be all ready for our makeup artists to doll you up.
Hair must be completely dry when our makeup artist arrives for the makeup session. If hair is damp, our makeup artist will require additional time to blow dry your hair resulting in a delay in the completion time.
Furthermore, damp hair is harder to curl, and the curls will not last for long in our humid weather.
It is not recommended to wash your hair in the morning of the actual day. However, if it is a must to wash your hair in the morning, hair should be completely dry upon arrival of our makeup artist.
Lastly, do not use hair conditioner when washing your hair the night before your wedding. Hair products such as hair oil and serums are not recommended to be applied. Drier hair works best for styling purposes!
Prior to the makeup session, it is recommended to gently exfoliate your skin to reveal a smooth, radiant complexion.
This will also ensure easy absorption of the products layered on your skin afterwards. Follow up with a hydrating face mask to hydrate your skin for the best makeup effect. Remember to wash your face after removing the mask!
To avoid interference with our makeup application, do refrain from applying any sunscreen or moisturiser. Too oily moisturisers will result in your foundation melting faster.
For brides with sensitive skin, do inform our makeup artist in advance. Should you prefer to use your own makeup or skincare products to avoid allergies, you can always have them on hand.
There should be a table surface for our makeup artist to place her cosmetics makeup train case and equipment.
Do also have a desk mirror to check your hair and makeup once it is completed. This will ensure that you will be fully satisfied with your look and if not, refinements can be made.
For optimal lighting conditions, it is advisable for the makeup session to be done under natural lighting. If the room is too dimly lighted, table lamps are highly recommended.
4. MAKEUP TOUCH-UPS
In your cosmetics bag, do prepare either a compact powder or loose powder for touch-ups throughout the day. Especially in Singapore’s hot weather, this will prevent your makeup from shifting around.
We recommend the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder for fuss-free touch-ups and it works really well at mattifying your face. Don’t forget your favourite lipstick as well!
Prior to the makeup session, do change into your appropriate lingerie like Nubra. Bathrobes or open button tops should be worn as well to ensure fuss-free changing into your wedding dress.
6. PREPARATION ON THE NIGHT BEFORE
To ensure that your skin is properly hydrated, it would be good to put on a hydrating sleeping mask for the night. Alternatively, you can also use your night cream according to your preference.
It is also advisable to not drink too much water the night before. This might result in puffy eyes or water retention in the face the morning after. Most importantly, do get as much sleep as possible to be fresh for your big day!
Having these tips in mind will ensure that you look your best on the most important and special day of your life.
With that, we hope that these guidelines have been helpful for you in knowing how you can prepare yourself for your big day. Last but not least, our team at Autelier Makeup would like to wish you a wonderful wedding and a blissful marriage ahead!
