Time is ticking on and Alexandra and Yousef’s big day is getting ever closer. However, despite being extremely busy with her every day jet set lifestyle (Alexandra works as cabin crew for Emirates airline) Alexandra has managed to drop us a line with the low down on her bridal hair and make up preparations and choices for her look on the big day.
I am lucky that I have a friend who is a very talented hair dresser! So when I have been home on layovers we have been getting together for hair trials (and of course a girly catch up!) With regards to styles, I am leaning towards an up do and we have been trying out various styles. I am yet to settle on a definite style I want to go with but we’re having lots of fun playing with all the options!
Bridal Make Up
When it comes to my bridal make up look, I am going for all out glam. I am required to wear full make up for work so want to make sure that when it comes to my wedding day look, it feels really special!For me, my bridal look is going to be all around the eyes. I am loving the middle eastern style eye make up. Nothing says glam better if you ask me! To achieve this look, I will be getting eyelash extensions done in Dubai and I have just recently had my eyebrows done by Lucy Jo Allen – I have had semi-permanent, hair stroke brows, I couldn’t be happier with them!
My usual foundation is Estee Lauder double wear and I absolutely love it. It stays in place all day and has a lovely matte finish so will definitely be using that for my bridal make up look. And of course, living in Dubai, i am managing to keep the tan topped up regularly on my days off 😉
Oooh, to be able to top up your tan on your days off… there are some very clear benefits to living in Dubai!! Alexandra thank you for sharing, we can’t wait to see your finished look. Already counting down the days to your next instalment!
