Wedding Season 

Some Tips for my fellow makeup artists 😌
• Primer – Keeps the foundation in place and adds lustre to the skin. 

• Longwearing Foundations – These stand the test of time and will not fade during the day. ***Use waterproof foundation 

• Waterproof Liner & Mascara – 

• Individual Lashes – A lot of brides want lashes on the day but aren’t necessarily used to wearing them. Suggest individuals since they don’t feel like anything and you can control the intensity and tailor them to your brides eye shape.

• Lipstick with staying power – With all the kissing, eating and drinking that will take place, use lip products that have staying power.

Pre-wedding consultation are…

• What is the location and time of day the wedding will take place? Ask for an agenda.

• What is your favorite picture of yourself?

• Do you have an example of how you want to look?

• What is the size of the wedding party? Price accordingly.

• Will touch ups be required and scheduled? If not offer a touch up key for a small fee.

• What will the bridesmaids’ look be? One look that can be tweaked for each will help you stay on time and create uniformity

• Are there any special needs? Such as tattoo or scar cover.

• Will this be photographed in black and white, color or both? Negotiate a photo for your book from the photographer.

*Always have a signed contract with a list of policies for clarity. This way you avoid being out of pocket if cancellations happen or the size of the bridal party changes.

Wedding Season Has Begun

Goin’ to the chapel and we’re gonna get married …..#ilovethatsong

Okay so this is your big day ! The day you’ve been waiting for since you were a little girl

This is what I tell all my brides when they ask me how they should prepare their skin for the BIG day 🙂


6 months before your big day :

Moisturizer,sunblock, and 2 liters of water a day

Exfoliate and moisturize your entire body so your skin is camera ready

Start eating clean because you are what you eat

Be skin smart by starting a religious skincare routine and having a monthly facial until your wedding day

If you have any acne, get in touch with your dermatologist to consider possible treatment options

If you have mature or tired skin, try Microdermabrasion or a Jessner peel to help get your skin looking radiant & healthy



3 months before the wedding:

Keep doing above steps

Splurge on that eye cream girl.

Get a massage

Start dry brushing your entire body



1 Month Before Your Wedding

Resist the urge to start anything new when it comes to skin products

Cleanse, Hydrate, Moisturize, & Protect

You’re not going to see results from an anti-aging cream or cleansing routine in a month’s time anyway, so your best bet is sticking to what you know your skin can tolerate.

Don’t even try a new makeup remover or face wash, now is not the time to experiment.

Get a massage

Get a body scrub

Dry brush your body

Avoid alcohol as its very dehydrating & can undermine all the preparation you have done

Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night




One week before

Have your last facial at least one week before your wedding day

Make sure it is the same facial that you’ve had before, to avoid any nasty skin reactions

Cleanse, hydrate, & protect your skin

Get another body scrub
