Top 10 Beauty Tips for Brides from EF Creative Studios

With wedding season fast approaching, today I have a guest blog from the lovely ladies over at EF Creative Studios. When they asked me what type of post I would like them to write about, I thought what better than a post showing brides how to get themselves ready for their big day. The girls are constantly doing makeup and bridal makeup in particular, so they know what needs to be done to make sure that you are looking only beautiful on your big day. You can find the girls on Facebook here, twitter and on their website here. So you’ve found Mr. (or Mrs.) Right and the date is…

Bridal Beauty Preparation

Over the past several weeks, quite a number of you have sent me messages asking could I detail what beauty preparation I did in the run up to the wedding. So many people find that the world of beauty throws so much at them in the run up to their big day, that they don’t know what treatments would actually benefit them the most. There is so many treatments out there, and to be fair while there are many wonderful treatments, there are many that are just looking to capitalise on the bridal market. Every woman wants to look her best at all times, but when it comes to your…

The 10 Stages of getting engaged and buying a ring.

Over the past few months, it seems the world and it’s mother has gotten engaged. Getting engaged is one of the most special moments in your life, but whether we admit is or not, for most girls, an engagement is more than just himself dropping down on one knee. As crazy , and slightly bunny boilerish,  after a few years with the love of our life, we either consciously or unconsciously begin to exhibit some rather strange behaviour. 1: Dropping hints While sitting watching episodes of “Don’t tell the bride” or “Say Yes to the dress”, you casually say “oh isn’t that lovely”. Or ” I’d love something like that”. Plant…

A very Special year

I’m not normally one for the personal posts, but considering the year I’ve had, I think that somethings are worth looking back on. Every year brings it’s own ups and downs, but this year has been a fairly spectacular one. 2014 started out on a pretty bum note, as I was still unwell, and faced into another stint in hospital. However, as clichéd as it sounds, what doesn’t  kill you makes you stronger, and I can honestly say this year has brought about some really amazing things. I finally got the all clear health wise. The blog has gone from strength to strength thanks to you guys and I was not only…

Bridal Hair with Zinc Hair and beauty

It’s a rare thing, when you find a hairdresser that does exactly what you want, but that is what I found when I went to Lisa Sheppard in Zinc a few weeks ago. As most of you will already know, I am getting married next July. I have recently taken part in a number of trials, to see exactly what look I want for my wedding. Picking the dress has honestly been easier than picking the hair and makeup look that I want and if I’m honest I still haven’t fully decided. It’s breaking my heart. Why do I have to be so indecisive? With the dress I bought, I…

Bridal Makeup series: Lauren Cleare Mua

For the second part in The Beautiful Truth’s Bridal Makeup series, I was asked to be a model for Lauren Cleare, on the Blank Canvas Cosmetics stand at the pro beauty show in the RDS. I was so excited to be taking part in this, as Lauren has been creating quite a name for herself over the last few month’s and I was dying to see how she would work her magic on my mug! Not only that, but my face was included on the Blank Canvas promotional poster. I nearly died when I saw this. I am a massive fan of Blank Canvas brushes. Their eye brushes are more…

Bridal series: Everything you need to know about Bridal hair

Along with makeup and the dress, hair plays a vital role in your big day. We all know if we are having a bad hair day, it can completely dictate our mood. On your wedding day you want to be having the greatest hair day of your life. Recently I met with Leona O’Neill to have a bridal trial. I showed her a picture of my dress, and she came up with a style that she thought would work well my dress. Leona did this style in no time at all. It was so comfortable to wear and didn’t feel like I had a million clips sticking into my head.…

Bridal Makeup series : The Makeup Mentor

Once a bride has her dress, the next thing to focus on is hair and makeup. With so many makeup artists out there it is hard to know which one will work best for you and make you look like the beautiful bride you always thought you would be on your wedding day. Even though I am writing about beauty everyday, I have found the task of picking a makeup artist extremely difficult. At least with the dress, I know more or less how I will look in it on the day and there is no chance of anything looking dramatically different. However, when it comes to makeup, you may…

10 Things people don’t tell you about getting engaged and planning a wedding

As many of you know, after over 7 years together, myself and Mr Beautiful Truth, got engaged last July in Florida. You would think after such a long time together, it wouldn’t have been the big shock that it was, but to say I was surprised would be an understatement. I think my words were “You’re joking” over and over again. Needless to say, we are both over the moon and very excited about getting married next July. However, since we have started planning, I have realised there is so much people don’t tell you about getting engaged and planning a wedding. 1. You will never be prepared for the…
