I used Arbonne skincare, and my MUA used Shu Uemura foundation on me. I started growing out my hair almost a year in advance, and I started having regular mani-pedis about three months in advance.  As for hair color, I made sure that my last color before the wedding was done about a week to ten days before the big day. 🙂

My complexion does better when I run regularly, which coincidentally is necessary for me to fit in my dress.  Started wearing eye gel at night.

 

I haven’t decided on when I’ll color my hair, but a week to ten days sounds about right.  I’m scheduling my hair trial after prom season and will see what my stylist says then.

 

My nails are a lost cause.  I just hope to get their surfaces smoothed. Fiance works with his hands and typically smashes a fingertip annually, so my nail focus has been more on hoping he doesn’t bruise one before the wedding.

@Jane77677:  I am going to do color 6 days in advance. I need to get it straightened the week before that. I am trying to drink more water and working out a lot

@Brielle:  I just started (3mths ago) using Arbonne…I totally love the primer it is AMAZING!! I use a lot of their other stuff too which is really good but that primer blows me away!

Something that I have discovered in the last 6 months: Lash Envy….you can only buy it from a Salon…I paint it along my upper eye lash line every day….after about 3 mths I noticed a difference…after 5 months I was quite amazed…My lashes are longer for absolutely sure!…I still wear mascara to make them nice and dark but my lashes before were short and now they look amazing!…now they are at the right length (they just touch my sunglasses!) I just use it every other day…I am in BC Canada and it costs around $100 but I am still on my first tube after about 6 mths.
