So way back in November 2010, Bridalicious hosted its first Bridalicious Beauty Shaker at the beautiful Bellvue Manor (one of my faves). Brides wanted more beauty, so we gave it to them. What is a Beauty Shaker you ask? Its where brides mix and mingle over great food and most importantly learn about BRIDAL BEAUTY and how to look their best!
So how can brides look their best on their wedding day?
Step 1. Gettinf your skin into its optimal condition. You want that fresh, flawless, glow right? That doesn’t mean going for random facials and calling it a day. because you’re ‘supposed’ to. There are many types of facial sand skin treatments out there. The wrong ones can be ineffective or worse yet, harmful to your skin. You have to be strategic about choosing the right procedures in a timely manner to optimize your skin and financial investment. Yorkville’s Glow Medi Spa, voted Canada’s Best Medi Spa 2010 by Chateline Magazine, educated brides on skin and the different skin treatments for different problems. at the Beauty Shaker. One lucky bride even won an on-site rejuvenating facial, while others were able to watch the process.
Step 2.Prepare. Dollars add up. Maximize your trials. Determine what you want and don’t want. Amplified Soul Makeup+Hair Couture taught brides how to develop their look(s) and take into consideration factors such as the outfit, fashion and functionality. Along with CTC West and their stunning collection, we showcased different kinds of dupattas and their effects on the overall look.
Step 3:Know-How. We actually took the brides through a natural bridal makeup application with airbrush. The purpose of this was teach the tricks of the trade, so that brides could do their own makeup for smaller bridal events and also know what to expect on their big day. We had lots of questions each step of the way!
The brides not only left more prepared, they left with CARGO 7in 7 makeup kits and a $50 gift certificate for Glow Medi Spa. The three grand prizes included a $200 Cargo gift basket, a $150 facial and a $300 skincare regimen from Glow Medi Spa.
