#Throwback Bridal Beauty:
Jules Sebastian

Posted in Bridal on May 6, 2018 by


A wedding is the perfect excuse to splurge on your skin, but it can be overwhelming. There are a lot of treatments and not a lot of time. That’s why Gritty Pretty’s introduced Bridal Beauty, our new section dedicated to word-of-mouth bridal beauty tips from those in the know.

In this edition of Bridal Beauty, we’re throwing it back to the wedding of stylist and YouTube host, Jules Sebastian and musician, Guy Sebastian. The ultra talented couple of had been together for eight years before tying the knot in a beautiful ceremony at St Patrick’s Estate in Manly. They celebrate their ten-year wedding anniversary in a few weeks (congratulations, guys!) and here, Jules shares her beauty routine from the big day…

 

 

My wedding skin prep…

“We got engaged and married within five months so I didn’t have much time to prep! My skin is generally well behaved so it was my normal skin care routine as per usual up until the day. I didn’t want to go through anything new just in case.”

My skincare regime…

“I cleansed, toned, and moisturised every morning and evening. A mask once a week and a gentle scrub a couple times a week, too.”

I would change…

“I might have gone for a facial or skin peel refresh in the weeks leading up. Preparations were fairly hectic, so a little pamper and a lay down could have done the world of good!”

My wedding inspiration…

“It came from online and in magazines. I love following beauty experts on Instagram as they always have really different and interesting tips to try. I am an ambassador for Voeu skincare and I have learnt so much about what ingredients go into products and how everybody’s skin is so unique to them. I have a true understanding now that skin is the canvas and everything else goes on top looks good because of that canvas.”

My makeup artist…

“My friend Maria Gabriel from Makeup Store Australia did my makeup for my wedding day. The brief was ‘I want to look like the better version of myself’. Ha! My day to day look is very natural, simple and not too over the top when it comes to makeup. I wanted to still feel like myself on my wedding day, but just the very best, most pretty, photographable version!”

My hair stylist…

“My friend Lores Giglio did my hair. I found my perfect wedding hair example in a hair magazine at the train station on the way to work one morning. I was cutting it very fine with my wedding hair, but I knew when I saw it I would know that’s what I wanted. Poor Lores had to literally build the look on top of my head! It’s hard to explain but it was a beautiful creation held together with 4000 bobby pins. I also had a little head band at the front for a little extra something. I still love my wedding hair 10 years later…”

My lipstick…

“It was Makeup Store shade in ‘Pretty. It’s a little bit pink, a little bit brown and a little bit sheer. It was perfect.”

My fragrance…

“I wore Chloé, and I actually can’t remember what Guy wore – he owns (no joke) about 100 colognes so it could have been anything!”
