Did you know that December is the most popular month for couples to get engaged? 40% of all proposals come in December with Christmas Eve being the most popular day of the year. I’ve done a few “surprise” engagements in my time – where the boyfriend contacts me and asks if I’ll surprise his soon to be fiance with a makeover while he is waiting in the wings to pop the big question! I have to say that in some of these cases I got the feeling my clients actually knew what was about to happen. Let’s face it…it’s not everyday your fiance hires a professional to turn you into a glam queen before you head out for the evening. Maybe your man does this regularly….if so, he’s a keeper! But for the rest of us, we aren’t quite that fortunate. Women often that have that little inkling that something is up!
So, if you think this might be the year the love of your life gets down on bended knee to ask for your hand in marriage make sure you’re looking great when it happens! Remember that no matter where the proposal is done there is a very good possibility that you will be photographed whether it’s by a professional, a family member or friend and your “surprise proposal” photos could be seen just about anywhere! The last thing you want is to be wearing sweat pants and a t-shirt with no makeup on! Be prepared. This is the month for many of you…..don’t get caught looking anything but fabulous!
Here are some makeup and hair inspiration ideas for those soon to be engaged ladies! These looks are easy to achieve, photograph well and it doesn’t look as though you’re trying too hard!
