“Makeup isn’t about changing yourself; but rather allowing your inner self to shine!”
To all brides to be! Your wedding day is going to be your most photographed day ever! So here are a few basic makeup tips I like to share with all my brides!
-Be true to yourself!! Don’t try a smokey eye for your wedding day if you’ve never worn something that dramatic. Another note – do what you want to do- not what mom wants 😉
-Have an open mind at your trial! This is your time to try out different looks/colors/textures until you find what works best for you! Just like any other aspect of your wedding planning, this is your time to find the perfect look! It took you time to find the perfect dress, you tasted several cake samples, looked at many venues, etc…, so think of your makeup trial the same way!
-Be open to trying something a little different! I know that sounds like the complete opposite of what I just said. But what I mean is, its ok try something a bit more dramatic- maybe a pop of color on your lips, or a little more highlight on your cheekbones. Just the right amount of drama without changing who you are.
-Please don’t tan. I know, you don’t want to look ‘pale’ but you don’t want to hear me preach to you about how bad any sunburn can be to your skins health and appearance in years to come. Instead, opt for a spray tan and I can make you look like a bronzed goddess with the right amount of makeup.
-Keep in mind that the makeup looks you see on pinterest or in magazines are a great starting point to get ideas, but don’t set your heart on one specific look. Chances are those pictures have been airbrushed, photoshoped, set in the perfect lighting, and models/celebs are trained to smile and pose professionally. You are going to be just as beautiful, but the makeup is not going to look EXACTLY the same.
-Take care of your skin! Believe me, no matter the amount of makeup or how much you spend on makeup, it is always going to look best on healthy skin!
Id love to be a part of your special day; whether you are looking for a makeup artist and/or esthetician…lets create the most memorable and beautiful YOU!
