You have got the man and the wedding plans are in motion... But how you will look on your big day?

Make up starts with great skin.

Here’s a list of things you should keep in mind and avoid a few days before the wedding:

~Avoid substances that could give you oily skin, swelling and irritation. These include red meat, alcohol, caffeine, spicy or deep fried foods.

~ Dont do too much tanning before the wedding. You may start to peel!!

~ Remember to drink lots of water to keep hydrated and flush out the toxins.

~ Avoid using Retin A and Alpha Hydroxy creams prior to the wedding day. (They may cause skin peeling, flaking and irritation that will show in photos)

~ Exfoliate your skin with a manual exfoliator the day before your wedding.

~Have your brows professionally shaped prior to the wedding day. Nice brows are very important because they frame the eyes. Remove any unwanted facial hair at the same time.

~ Refresh your hair color a week before the wedding. Get rid of dark roots and split ends.

~Book a day at the spa to de-stress and pamper yourself .

~ Do NOT use any new facial products incase you get a bad reaction from them.

~Remove all traces of makeup the night before your wedding. Avoid dry lips by putting a lip moisturizer on your lips before bed and the morning of your wedding. Your face should be clean and product free when the make-up artist arrives.

~Make sure you wash and moisturize your face 15 mins before the make-up artist starts. This will help ensure that the makeup  doesn't cause your skin to dry out. 

~ If you have to go to your MUA's or salon for your makeup, please make sure to arrive on time. If you are running late, call to notify them.

~If you’re not hiring a make-up artist for the whole wedding day make sure you have a lipstick, powder and blotting sheets with you to touch up when needed.

Hope this helps!
 
 
Saturday Sept 11, I did a wedding makeup for a beautiful bride named Lia. I had an artist friend of mine come to help me with job. The bride was very easy going and was a pleasure to work with. The bridemaids were great. This was a dream job.
Not only did I get to work with some great clients, they also fed me coffee and AMAZING homemade amond cookies!!!

Tamara (MUA) and I first worked on the Mothers of the Bride and Groom. They had just got back from the salon and in great spirts. Then we worked on the 3 Brides maids and finaly the blushing bride! They were a stunning group of women.

All the best of luck to the happy couple!
