I have helped with lots of hen parties offering a range pamper parties and makeovers - so I just wanted to share some of my top tips. 

The Party Planning

  • A smaller and more intimate hen party with your closest and best friends are generally more touching for the bride to be. After all they do say its quality and not quantity. 

  • We all know its easy to get carried away when planning parties, especially if its a bigger party and your trying to keep everyone happy. Remember you can't keep everyone happy all the time, the one person you want to make happy is the hen. Therefore try and plan things she would love to do. 

  • When planning the party or weekend some of the people you invite may seem to be difficult whether it's being inflexible about dates and times or restricted on budgets. Having a group message on whatsapp or facebook is a good way for people who may not already know each other to get talking and talk about any issues that may have already arisen. Things may get taken the wrong way and seem to become worse, if this happens just take a minute and remember who this weekend or party is for. Try and arrange a meet up with those who are involved with any disagreements to clear the air before the fun weekend.  

  •  It's easy to plan expensive venues and expensive cities but its always the thought that counts and the more personal moments during the hen weekend that the hen will remember the most. Its also the perfect time to show the hen how much she means to each individual person there. So why not try personalising games, gifts and events or activities.

Choosing the right person to do your hair and makeup for your wedding day is really important.  You are going to spend a very special day with them, so its important you get on and they are organised and reliable.  There are lots of hair stylist and makeup artist available, so do you research - make sure you view their reviews from previous clients and they have experiance in wedding mornings.  I always recommend a trial run with your chosen hair / makeup artist to try out styles and ensure are happy before your big day.

I always like to start any wedding trial knowing as much about your big day as possible.  To make sure I have all the information I need, I ask brides to complete to booking form before so I can reserve your wedding date and and have all the information required for your big day.   Once I have received your booking form we can arrange the best time for you to come to my home beauty salon for your hair and makeup trial.  I usually suggest the trial takes place around 2/3 months before the big day - so your hair length and skin tone will be similar to the day itself.

I start the trial with a consultation, I like to see pictures of your wedding dress to gain a further idea of your wedding and the different styles and looks that would go with your perfect dress. For instance if your wedding dress has a beautifully detailed back you may want to have your hair up so you can make sure everyone sees all the beautiful detail.

Why airbrushing?

When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection! There are also hygiene benefits to spraying. When we use a conventional brush or our fingers there is potential to spread bacteria and germs across the face. By spraying Airbase make-up onto the face we can avoid this.

What about its staying power?

The silicone in the make-up makes Airbase incredibly long lasting and waterproof (and tear proof!). As silicone is heat resistant you don't get shine through as you can with water or oil based make-ups, and stands up to the intense heat of studio lighting and in bright sunshine... Airbase really does last all day.

You can build upon each layer to create the perfect  coverage .  Silicone foundation really does stand the test of time! It is this that helps give Airbase Make-Up its unrivalled durability. That means that your Airbase Make-Up application lasts all-day making Airbase perfect for bridal beauty - providing unrivalled durability

Luxurious feel and lightweight on the skin

It allows skin to breathe  Airbase Foundation does not clog pores and allows skin to breathe.  Last but not least, Airbase Silicone Foundation feels luxurious on the skin and is incredibly lightweight.
