Preps for a Bride!!

As a makeup artist sometimes I forget to tell my brides how to prep before their wedding so here are a few tips:

1. Schedule a trial run and try to get a contract
2. Drink plenty of water weeks before your wedding, this helps the skin look fresh and hydrated. If you have a Bachelorette party and alcohol is involved, drink water that night. Alcohol can lead up to you having dry flaky skin the day off. If you notice skin flaking, try to exfoliate.
3. If you wax your brows/face try doing it on that Monday or the week before. Sometimes wax takes off the first layer(dead skin cell) and it could show lines of demarcation
4. Try being on time, you never know what your makeup artist has scheduled... unless you're paying a day rate then she's all yours!

Tips for my Brides/Wedding Season!!

Hello All!!

It's been a great season so far... I just want to give a few tips for any future Brides.. I've learned/seen a lot over the past few months and I would love to share some tips that my Brides shared with me on what to do/what not to do. When it comes to hair and makeup, always do a trial run and try to get a contract. This morning, I had a Bride and her hairstylist didn't show up. Second have a time line, Third if your able, try getting your nails and toes done during the week not the day of "one less thing to worry about"  and please get a "Wedding Planner" it's the best decision you could ever make.
