Looking for tips on how to get a natural bronzed glow for your upcoming wedding? Get the look with some of St. Tropez’s Wedding Tanning tips!
“Think about a self tan as ‘enhancing’ the skin rather than being darker. A gentle layer of self tan followed by one of our illuminators will ensure you have a natural glow with a light radiance.”
“Treat your tan like you would your dress, hair or make-up trial. If you’re using home products, become familiar with the products you choose to use. If you decide to have a professional salon treatment, go in for a few ‘practice’ sprays beforehand!”
Royal Radiance: “Apply your tan preferably two days before your wedding and maintain it using one of our Gradual Tan products daily. On the day, just a simple dab of Skin Illuminator on your collar and cheek bones will make any tan ‘pop’!”
Prior to your wedding day, come in to our Coquitlam or Metrotown East location for an Airbrush Tan consultation and to try it out! Or visit any of our Eccotique locations to test out our St. Tropez Retail Self Tan Collection to find your perfect product

Some makeup tips from our experts at Eccotique on how to get the perfect wedding day makeup!
Wear A Little More – On your wedding day, wear a bit more makeup than you normally do. Camera flashes and bright lighting can make your makeup disappear so you want to add a touch more foundation, eyeshadow, and lipgloss so it shows up! Just don’t overdo it.
Blush Blush Blush – A blushing bride certainly needs cheek colour to fake a warm glow throughout the entire day and night. Choose a light cream blush that has the same undertones as your skin, and apply it evenly. Then layer a light shimmery powder blush over your cream for colour that will not fade.
“Tightliner” Trick – What is “Tightliner”? Its a trick that makeup artists use to make the eye look crisp, while not taking away from the natural lid shape. Before applying eyeshadow, lift your eye up slightly with your index finger toward your forehead. Using a flat liner brush, apply a cake liner (or a wet eyeshadow) in dark brown or black to the inner rim of your eye, just under your eyelash line. This takes some practice, but the results are so beautiful you will want to master it!
One Shade Brighter – Your lips should not be ignored! For the best looking lips, apply a shade of lipstick or gloss that is one shade brighter than your natural colour. This will ensure your lips will pop in photos, and will still look natural.
Get Glowing! – Don’t shy away from a little shine on your face at your wedding. You want to look dewy, so don’t use too much powder when setting your foundation. Add a little light shimmer on your highlight areas to complete your look.
If you are a spring or summer bride, there’s no doubt you are frantically going through magazines trying to figure out the perfect hairstyle to suit your wedding theme, hair type and personal style!
The task can be daunting, so the stylists at Eccotique have compiled their most requested (and on trend!) bridal hairstyles for the upcoming spring/summer wedding season!
A Romantic Updo – This style is a classic. It stays put, your hair is out of your face, and the look will never go out of style (your kids will definitely not point and laugh in 10 years time!). Celebrity inspiration is classic hollywood – think Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina. Perfect for the modern bride.
Braids Braids Braids! – The waterfall braid is everywhere this season and feels girly & trendy. Try the look in a half up style – great for the bride with an Indie or DIY style to their wedding! This look also works for weddings with lots of floral inspiration and light, spring colours.
Elegant Chignons – Perfect for almost any style of wedding and dress, this look is simple yet stunning. Ask your stylist to add a pinned twist or a small braid to your chignon for a look that is “of the moment.”
Loose Waves – Large waves and loose curls are spot on for the bride who is wearing a strapless gown, or wants to show off their hair’s length! A centre part, curls that are created away from the face, and subtle texture are so sexy! Think Victoria’s Secret Angel
Curled Down the Side – A deep side part and old hollywood or mermaid curls is a style that is glamourous, chic and bold. Add a crystal hair accessory to your look for more impact, and red lips for the sophisticated bride who wants to stand out.
