Tips for the Perfect Wedding Day Makeup!

• Drink lots of water to keep skin clear and hydrated.

• Invest in a good exfoliator and use 1-3 times a week. This will help remove any dull or dry patches on the skin.

• Moisturize! Even if your skin is oily it can often still be dry in some areas.

• Book a trial session- your trial session is very important and allows time to discuss your needs, concerns, and desired look for the day.

• Fake a flawless finish- opt for airbrush makeup: it covers imperfections, is waterproof, and photographs with a flawless finish.

• Try a bold lip- think of all the kissing you’ll do on your wedding day! Make sure you line your lips before applying gloss; this will provide a long lasting finish.

• Emphasize your eyes- whether you’re the natural, or ultra-glam bride, adding false eyelashes will make your eyes look bigger and brighter. They open up your eyes so they look extra-amazing in photos.
