Austin, Texas has always been world-famous for its cultural and music scene, but just last January, it was named by Forbes as one of ten unexpectedly romantic cities. This may be due in part to springtime in the Texas Hill Country, which is reportedly unlike anything you can imagine and makes for a great season for weddings in the city. The gorgeous fields adorned with Texas bluebonnets should complement the radiance of the bride, that is, if she has the right wedding hair and makeup from Austin stylists.
According to Robert Applebaum, skincare and beauty expert for The Huffington Post, the latest trend in weddings is to “leave the drama to the dress.- Natural-looking makeup, nude lipstick, and soft mascara is all you need in order to look positively radiant on your wedding day. Applebaum adds that this trend, ushered in by designers like Elie Saab, Vera Wang, and Marchesa, is meant to highlight the bride’s most important beauty enhancer: her skin.
Places like Red Stella Salon offer organic facials so your skin will look its best on your wedding day. An organic facial is a type of beauty treatment that only uses natural products, i.e. free from synthetic chemicals, so you won’t inadvertently damage your skin. Some facial treatments can be customized based on your skin type so you can get the best possible results and achieve that natural glow before the Austin wedding makeup artist works his or her magic on you.
Applebaum also advises future brides to avoid the sun because the harmful UV rays can cause sun spots, uneven complexion, freckles, and even a burn. Protect your skin by applying moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. It will also help if you drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
As far as hair is concerned, look at different magazines and see which hairdo will look best with your gown. If you’ve got a princess-type gown, you can try putting your hair up in a messy bun and add a tiara for an edgy girl look. According to the Glamour UK website, if you happen to have a short bob with bangs, you can just ask the stylist to curl the ends for a chic finish; this hairdo should go well with your natural makeup.
Taking care of your skin and hair beforehand will ensure that you will look glowing as you walk down the aisle. After all, your big day is all about flaunting your understated beauty in one of the world’s unexpectedly romantic cities.
