Enhance Your Beauty On A Budget Before You Say I DO!
It’s 2018 and weddings are expensive!
With all of the inspiration we have from social media and other platforms like Pinterest, we all can admit that we spend countless hours looking for inspiration to make ourselves and our “big day” picture perfect. Several questions a bride asks herself, besides what her dress will look like, include: How will I wear my hair and makeup? How much will all of this cost and will I be able to afford it?
Rarely, do brides ever ask, “Can I do it myself?”
When it comes to beauty, brides on the average spend $500+ on hair and makeup alone! This usually includes dreams of a voluminous “updo” or long cascading curls embellished with adornments, glamorous eyelashes, and glowing skin. But what happens if you were not blessed to be born with any of these? The good news is you’re not out of luck! There are many ways to enhance natural beauty and stay within a budget!
Here are some simple tips:
With DIY education at your fingertips on platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest, it’s easier than ever to avoid salon prices and achieve photo-worthy hair in the comfort of your own home. Clip-in hair extensions will instantly add the volume and the length you need to achieve the perfect style. When selecting the right clip-in extensions, it’s key to find something that will be discrete and blend seamlessly with your natural hair. Barely Xtensions Ultra-Seamless Clip-in Hair Extensions feature a very thin ultra-seamless weft that is lightweight and lays flat to the head for a virtually undetectable blend that can work again and again. It’s as easy as part, clip, and go!
With DIY, you can create the perfect accessories to complement your wedding theme or dress or even use as bridal party gifts. For instance, create the latest on trend, "hair jewelry" by attaching petite flowers, gems, and ribbons to hair pins with a glue gun from any local craft store. Little touches like this can will go a long way in personalizing your wedding, not to mention making you look fantastic in closeups while saving hundreds of dollars.
Make Your Eyes Pop
Stunning eyes can completely transform your "I do" look. Add drama and flair by experimenting with a natural smoky eye paired with glitter eyeliner and a pop of highlighter.
