There’s nothing worse than paying for an expensive hairstyle or makeup application and being disappointed with the results. When it came to my wedding, I didn’t want to take any chances. I booked hair, makeup, and spray tan trials two months before the big day.
Getting a fake tan is risky for a redhead like me. If the tan gets too dark, it blends in with my hair, which is not a good look! To get a subtle, natural-looking tan, I called on the experts at The Glow Lounge in St. Paul. The custom airbrush tan looked great, and it lasted for days. I recommend getting the Blushing Bride package, which includes a trail tan and your wedding tan for $78.
There is only one person I trust with my hair on my wedding day—my longtime stylist Jessica at Salon Cheveux in White Bear Lake. She knows how to get the most out of my fine, thin hair. The trial hairstyle she did looked fabulous, but she thought of ways to make it even better. She’s going to cut a few more layers into my hair so when we style it for the wedding, it will look flawless.
I went to high school with Jessica Mae, the creative director of WarPaint International Beauty Agency. I heard good things about her business, so I decided to give her a call. War Paint comes onsite to do your makeup, so you don’t have to worry about traveling to a salon. The trial session with my makeup artist, Kristina, went well. She used airbrush foundation, which felt light and stayed on all night. The false eyelashes she applied looked natural, too. I felt like a slightly more beautiful version of myself.
If it’s in your budget, opt for beauty trials before your wedding. Instead of being nervous, you’ll feel confident that you’ll look your best when you walk down the aisle.
