Makeup Monday: Weddings

Love is in the air!! It's bridal season and looking your best on your big day is a must! Remember, whether you're having your makeup done by a professional or you're a do-it-yourself-er, bridal makeup must be applied differently than every day makeup. Priming and concealing must take priority to ensure your photographs capture exactly what you want them to!

The best tip I can give is to schedule a dry run with your makeup artist at least one month before the wedding, or to hold your own dry run at home. You may think it is perfectly fine to go in cold turkey on your wedding day, especially when you hire a professional, but you never know! Put yourself at ease by having your skincare routine and makeup look selected and tested ahead of time! This will guarantee your big day goes smoothly, your makeup will last and your pictures will look great!

I personally meet with all of my brides around the same time they are shopping for a dress. This ensures that we have plenty of time to work out a perfectly personalized skincare routine (remember to perfect that "canvas") and allows us to play with multiple makeup looks. I actually require a consultation prior to the wedding day; I do not show up on a wedding day having never spoken to or worked with my customers. I want to know your skin and what works for you, and I want to know how I can complete YOUR vision for your day!

To schedule your complimentary consultation including gift certificate, please email me your name, phone number and the best time to reach you :-)
