Here Comes The Bride, All Bleary Eyed!
I’ve been a blushing bride (twice) with my second (and last!) wedding truly living the dream! Idyllic castle, the most stunning yet expensive dress I’ll ever buy and wear only once, having hair and make up done and spending the only sunny day in August with all my family and friends (all thinking I’d made a better choice second time round, I hope!)
Oh yes, the journey to that point was months of meticulous planning and preparation. If I knew about lash extensions, they’d have been high on my ‘must have’ list. My big day was just before I launched my lash career, albeit quite by accident as described in issue 10!
I’ve recently heard a few lash artists getting worried about ‘brides’ having had a reaction to treatment with their wedding only a day or so away. Red eyes = panic!
With my last wedding costing thousands of pounds, I really wanted to look my best. I would have been mortified if I was wearing the signs of a reaction to a beauty treatment. Having said that, I almost did. Wow, big big lesson learned! I’d booked to have my waxing done 2 days before my wedding. I’d had it done for years with no issues so what could possibly go wrong? Well, the treatment before my wedding went wrong. Thankfully it was that one . . . The wax was too hot and I suffered burns under my brows. My eyes swelled and the scabs took over a week to heal before fading. I soon changed the timing of my appointment and gave the therapist some feedback! An apology just doesn’t go far enough when it comes to something as big as their wedding day.
