  1. Bridal Skincare 

    One of the biggest parts of your wedding is how you look and most importantly that you feel fabulous. You spend thousands on your dress, venue and photographer, and your makeup and skincare should be a vital part of the planning process as well, you will look back at these photographs and how you looked for years to come! Flawless makeup is not achieved by your makeup artist in one session unless your skin is being looked after. I suggest to all my brides that they start their skincare regime at least six months before their Big Day (although I would suggest you ALWAYS stick to a good skincare routine!). Here are some skincare tips and advice…

    Cleanse, tone and moisturise EVERY morning and evening, use a night cream as your nightly moisturiser, exfoliate your face and neck twice a week (leave the product in the shower and you will not forget), exfoliate your whole body at least once a week (again leave it in the shower so no excuses). After every shower moisturise your whole face and body as hot water strips moisture from your skin and causes dryness. Use a face mask once a week and make sure you are using products that suit your skin type. If you’re unsure of what products to use, visit your local beauty salon or skincare professional who can advise you on the products and ingredients you should be using for your skin type. Some of my favourite products are listed below – you don’t have to buy the most expensive brands to see results but your products should be natural and free of any harmful ingredients including parabens.

    Keith Cullen is one of my favourite Irish Singer/Songwriters and I have had the pleasure of attending events with him, Keith is charming, handsome, supportive and above all a great Irish talent!
