Bridal Makeup Tips

1. When should brides-to-be have a makeup trial run done?

“I prefer to do a trial run application, prior to the wedding. 6-9 months in advance. This allows the opportunity to meet and collaborate. This is where we can work together on creating the look you visualize. Also, depending on the season you may want to find and book your makeup artist pretty quickly to avoid any date discrepancies.”

2. What is your favorite makeup trend for brides right now?

“Lately I’ve been into very ‘clean look’. Subtle, delicate, clean, and pretty. Don’t get me wrong: colors and smoky eyes are fun, too. Depends on the moment, mood and client.”

3. Do you use airbrush makeup? Why or why not?

“As of now no we don’t, although I’ve been interested in investing in one for a while. We haven’t really had the need since we use nothing but top-of-the-line products. Maybe down the line we will incorporate it as an option.”

5. What are some tips for keeping makeup looking flawless all (wedding) day long?

“Using blotting sheets or dusting a little HD powder to absorb any oils. My favorite powder is Makeup Forever HD powder.”

6. If I could give brides-to-be my favorite makeup advice, it would be…

“To take care of your skin, it’s the most important key to flawless makeup application. SPF 35 or more, moisturizers and weekly facials are a must.”
