Wedding Season is in full swing!
Upper Canada wants to ensure we make your planning, shopping and to-do list as simple, stress-free and painless as possible.
Below are some of our essential tips and prep guide before the big day:
Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate. When it comes to pre-wedding skincare and preparation, you’ll hear this most often. Staying hydrated with water and hydrating your skin are two musts for glowing, radiant complexion. Your face makeup will apply easier with moist, hydrated skin! You will dramatically notice a decrease in blemishes and skin discolourations by following this simple step.
The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer is perfect for all skin types and it is filled with Fresh’s proprietary Super 7 Complex formula. It is a light-weight daily moisturizer that will help diminish visible signs of fine lines, dry and dull texture of the skin. Within 24 hours, you will noticeably feel your skin moisturized – a soft and supple canvas, ready for bridal makeup!
Now that you’ve covered hydration, the next step is to start applying face masks on a regular schedule. Face masks are an added boost to a skin care regimen, by allowing your skin to soak up the proper amount of moisture and benefits of the skin care products. Before the big day, invest in a good face mask for you and your bridal party!
GLAMGLOW’s Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment is a mud-to-oil gentle, deep cleansing treatment that removes weekly buildup of dirt, oil and makeup. This will revolutionize your skin care routine because the mask will leave your skin feeling velvety soft just in time for the big day!
Your wedding shoes are precious and special – they can act as a statement piece to your wedding attire. Need ‘Something Blue’? We’re seeing a trend of blue bridal heels as more brides are leaning into subtle hints of tradition in modern weddings. You’ll also want to think about switching into a pair of comfortable flats or sneakers to change into once the ceremony is over. Upper Canada has a large selection of stores to browse from: Town Shoes, Hudson’s Bay, Browns, Aldo and many more! Let us know how your wedding shoe search goes!
Photos will last a life-time and so will the memories of the big day. While you’re getting your hair and make-up done, feel and look good by wearing a bridal robe! You can match your bridal robe with the rest of your bridal party or have your bridal party wear a different colour to complement your wedding colours. The material of satin will not only have you feeling luxurious but the material will photograph well in natural lighting. Visit La Senza to find a wide range of bridal robes that are timeless and elegant.
Microblading could be the answer for you if you are worried about your eyebrows on your big day and on the honeymoon. This life-changing service is a form of semi-permanent tattoo that is applied by using a mini scalpel and tiny needles, mimicking the strokes of your eyebrow hair strands. Eyebrow tattoos has been around forever, however microblading offers a natural looking result because each stroke is drawn in, in the direction of your eyebrow hair growth.
Caryl Baker located on the lower level offers microblading and a thorough consultation with their pro-technician to ensure the eyebrows you want are achieved.
Most of all, enjoy this process of being engaged and being in love! Congratulations!
