Its got to be every girls dream, prince charming and the fairy tale wedding. But as for transforming from Cinderella into the perfect Princess, well you need a team of fairy god mothers for that.
Celebrity Make up Artist Hil Cook has worked with international stars like Kylie Minogue and Cate Blanchett, but Hil sees beauty in every women. She recommends enhancing your natural features to create a timeless look.
[Hil Cook, Celebrity Make up Artist]: "It think really the thing that works is to make people... enhance their natural beauty rather than making them look like someone that is full faced with make up and you can go..."
Youve got to have a pre wedding day make up consultation and a pre wedding day hair consultation. Senior Hair Stylist Angela Duncan recommends every bride to be should do this.
[Angela Duncan, Senior Hair Stylist & Make up Artist]: "You go and you have a really good try. You try ups and you try downs and you have a neck line on when you go to the trial which is similar to that of your dress." Angela also recommends bringing some pictures along to the consultation, of what style you want to go for.
[Angela Duncan, Senior Hair Stylist & Make up Artist]: "For a woman to come to us, they need to have a really good look at what they like so if they look through magazines and things like that and they come with an idea, then we try it on them because quite often they see something in a magazine but it won't really suit their face shape so we can adapt that."
Finding the perfect gown that radiates youth and beauty is a must, but you wont create that look if its not well fitted.
[Madina Enokaeva, Celebrity Wedding Dress Specialist]:"One of the most important features in a wedding gown, I would definitely say it is the neck line of the dress. It's the part of the gown that frames the face, shows your skin, shows of your best features, shoulders, neck line, lovely cheek bones, hair style, it all begins from the neck line." As for the glass slipper, well comfort is essential, at least if you want to make it past mid night.
[Jill Forsyth, Wedding Dress & Shoe Specialist]: "If she wants a lovely high shoe, if she needs more height, she use a platform, and a platform is extremely comfortable, you've got to have a comfortable shoe."
So where did Cinderella's beauty come from besides her fairy good mother? It seems a kind heart granted her the finest prince in the land and life lived happily ever after. Gina Shakespear, NTD, Wellington, New Zealand.
