Read on for her expert advice and a few helpful tricks to make sure you’re every bit the blushing bride on your wedding day!
What advice do you have for a bride trying to find the right look for her day?
A trial is KEY! Bring all your Pinterest pins, Instagram faves and bridal magazine tears to the trial. That gives your artist a visual of the look you have in mind. We can pull your favorite looks paired with your features to customize a timeless look you will be proud to look back on for years to come.
What are the current makeup trends for brides?
With fall rolling in, I am seeing and brides are requesting smokey eyes and bold lips. Again, a trial is key. If you have never worn a smokey eye, don’t wait until wedding day to give a trendy look a try.
What should a bride do to prepare for her wedding?
So I am going to mom out and say… drink all the water, rest as much as you can, and if you don’t already have one, start a good skin care regimen. Your makeup will always look its best if the skin is in its best shape. Do NOT wax or get a facial the week of the wedding!
What is the most important beauty product every bride should have?
A great moisturizer! Eye cream! Lip conditioner!
Any other insider tips you have for brides-to-be?
Do not ever be afraid to speak up! We love what we do, and we want you to feel your best. If we miss something or we are off base, tell us. You will never hurt my feelings. This is YOUR day! I always tell my brides, if you change your mind or want to try a different look, let’s do it. I want you confident on your big day!
