Pre-Wedding Beauty Treatments

Wispy Lash Extensions With Amanda Lee, Owner & Founder Of Iris Avenue Nail Salon

Lash extensions are a great way to kick off those last-step bridal preparations. Owner and founder of Iris Avenue Nail Salon in London, Amanda Lee, recommends them as they last for up to four weeks (meaning you don’t have to worry about them at all once they’re on). Made up of varying lengths, the extensions have a feathery appearance and avoid the heaviness that comes with some false lashes. The extensions are also waterproof, meaning you’ll be clear to shed as many tears as you like as you head down the aisle – minimum touch-up needed.

Where? 32 Store St, Fitzrovia, London WC1E 7BS

BOOK: A full set of wispy lash extensions are £100-£150, with the infill being £55-150 depending on the amount of volume that is required. irisavenue.com

Head over to the lavish ESPA Life at Corinthia for an invigorating facial treatment that will leave your skin glowing. ESPA uses its Active Nutrients collection throughout the Glow From Within Facial, refreshing the surface and leaving skin feeling dewy and refreshed. The 60-minute facial begins with a double cleansing using the Yuzu and Ginger Cleansing Sorbet and Optimal Skin Pro-cleanser, combined with the FOREO Luna 2 and steam, to help open the pores of the skin and allow for a deep cleanse. Your skincare specialist will then apply the Overnight Glow Enzyme Peel as a mask, before using the ESPA Rose Quartz Gua Sha to sweep over the décolleté and shoulders to help release tension. They will then apply the Optimal Pro-Serum (an ESPA favourite) and once again use the gua sha on the neck and face to stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Skin is then cleaned up with a Clean and Green Detox Mask, before finally the Pink Hair and Scalp Mud is massaged onto your head and the Optimal Body Tri-Serum is worked into your arms. You might come out the other side feeling like a limp noodle, but you can be sure every ounce of tension in your body will be alleviated.
