Captivating Beauty at Pine Peaks Event Center

Sorry we just have a little sampling of this beautiful bride. It was one cold day, but she sure warmed up the room with her Tango dance…We are hoping to post the video soon…

We loved working with her…she had beautiful long, red, hair which she wore in a romantic bridal up-do. We chose pink lips & cheeks that complimented her skin tone and red hair so well…

This is what she had to say:

“John was amazed with my hair and makeup. Thanks for making me beautiful!!!!!!! :)”

I wish we had more pictures to show you of this bride. She was so stinking adorable as were all her wedding party..

She was married at Madden’s Resort this past summer on one of the hottest, most humid days that we had here in the Brainerd Lakes area. She wanted a very natural look and chose to wear her hair in this sweet half updo.

After we were finished with her and her bridal party, our family ran up to Maddens to visit their delicious ice cream shop. We ran into the bride and her wedding party they were all having such a good time. Loved seeing all the laughter and fun.

Captivating Beauty-Beauty Timeline for Beautiful Brides

bridal skincare treatments in Brainerd MNFinding the time to make your beauty routine into a bride-to-be beauty routine is one of the most important aspects of preparing for the big day. Often our beauty routines become something that is done on the go or in between dealing with the essentials in life but when your wedding day is on the horizon planning in advance for regular beauty maintenance can save you time and keep you looking fresh and flawless on your wedding day.

6 Months Before the Big Day

Instill a Skincare Routine

Whether you are a skincare fanatic or a newbie to the skincare routine, with 6 months to go before your wedding day, you will have plenty of time to instill a new skincare beauty routine. This will give you time to meet with an Esthetician to help clear up any skincare issues and find the right products that work for you. If you’re unsure about what products will work for you stock up on samples and start small.

Hire a Glam Squad

Every girl wishes she could have her very own glam squad, especially on bad hair days! Better yet, having your make-up and hair done by a professional in a comfortable setting with all your besties by your side can calm your nerves and provide you with some much needed glam support! Splurging and securing professional help with beauty and style needs can help you feel like a celebrity, even if it is just for one day.

3 Months Before the Big Day

Make a Date to Plan Ahead

Seriously, there is nothing bridezilla about scheduling your major beauty appointments months in advance. There is nothing worse than not being able to get in at your favorite salons, especially when you’re getting married and you NEED a mani-pedi.

Book a Series of Facials

If you’re not a regular consumer of facials you may want to give them a chance when preparing for your big day. Scheduling facials at least 3 months in advance can allow your skin to adjust to the new regime and ensure you’re beautiful, glowing and flawless on your wedding day.

2 Months Before the Big Day

It Just Makes Scents

Picking your wedding day perfume may not sound like your typical beauty checklist need but it is important to keep in mind that everyone will want to congratulate you, and finding a pleasing and occasion worthy scent that blends with your style is essential. Also, giving new scents a test run well in advance can ensure you don’t find yourself wishing you had gone with something else for your big day.

Make-up Test Drive

Meeting with your professional make-up artist at least a month in advance can keep your frazzled nerves in check when it comes to wedding day make-up. Make sure to bring along anything you plan on wearing the day of, such as your veil, tiara and earrings. Also, wear a white or pale colored top to ensure your make-up is perfect.

Captivating Beauty’s On Site Wedding Day Hair & Airbrush Makeup Team

Captivating Beauty in Brainerd MN Bridal TeamWe Just had a photoshoot done with some of our lovely ladies from Captivating Beauty and thought you would like to meet the team.

Also we are excited to announce we have expanded to St. Cloud & Mpls MN and have some fabulous wedding makeup and updo experts….Honestly we are booking up so quickly already…it’s been so much fun…..

We also have more team members that couldn’t make it to the photoshoot…we were so bummed:( but we will be having another photoshoot this spring and hopefully everyone can make it then..

We have also added an On Site Massage Therapist who has years of experience under her belt. We have been a part of a lot of wedding and especially during the winter months the guys don’t have a lot to do before the wedding and can get a little antsy during the waiting process. We though this would be the perfect addition…

We also offer Massages in our treatment room…

Happy Thanksgiving – Exciting News

Captivating-Beauty Happy ThanksgivingI just wanted to write a quick little update for you all! We have some exciting news coming up next week…so please check back in..

Also winter has finally arrived and with that drier air which equals drier skin…here is one simple free thing you can do that will help tremendously ….use a crock-pot. I have a crock-pot right on my night side and that baby is on 24/7. We’ve had some people laugh when they see all the crock-pots in our bedrooms, but I tell you what it makes such a huge difference in our skin. You could even add some EO’s if you’re so inclined.
