Tip #1: Skincare!

Get into a daily routine at least 6 months prior to your wedding day. The longer you have to prepare, the better.

Cleanse twice a day, exfoliate 2-3x per week and moisturize! Don’t neglect your lips! Exfoliate them regularly and seal the moisture with a lip balm or mask overnight 

Hydrate! Drink all the water to get the most from your skincare! 

Don’t experiment with any facial treatments for the few weeks leading up to your big day! 

Tip #2: Airbrush versus conventional foundation

Airbrush is especially good for dry skin & mature skin. It is very light and is applied in layers to give you the perfect coverage. Because it is silicone-based, it is best to avoid oily skin. And don’t worry, if you’re unsure which to choose - we will help you decide!

Conventional makeup can give the look of airbrush foundation and last equally as long. We use top-of-the-line products to ensure this. 

Tip#3: Choose a look you LOVE!

Scan Pinterest! Save everything you like! Schedule more than one trial if you’re on the fence. If you’re torn between looks, we can help you choose! As makeup artists, we want to ensure you not only look but FEEL your best on your wedding day. If you don’t typically wear a lot of makeup - aim for a simple look but understand a lot goes into a “natural” face that looks flawless in photos. If you love a glam look - do your research, and we will make sure whatever you choose is customized to fit your eye & face shape.

Don’t be afraid of color  Nudes and pinks are timeless and are always gorgeous for that bridal look and glow, but I have seen many a bride look smashing with a bold lip color. Just make sure whatever you choose is comfortable, and that makes you feel confident.
