My top 3 expert tips to feel like the best version of yourself on your wedding day

Getting your skin wedding day ready takes effort, but it’s worth it. Investing in a solid skincare routine a few months ahead of time will pay dividends on the big day. My recommended skin prep will leave you glowing and confident as you walk down the aisle.

Skin

If there’s one thing I would recommend investing in during the lead-up to your wedding day, it’s your skin. At your trial appointment, I will assess your skin and we will discuss ways you can get it in the best possible condition. Depending on your skin type, I will recommend the best products to add to your skincare routine to ensure a hydrated, clear base. Don’t forget your lips! Dry lips will not give a smooth base for your lipstick, so exfoliating and moisturizing are key steps to add to your skincare routine! I’d recommend the Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks. Although these are marketed as an overnight product, they can be used at any time of day for intense hydration! This will ensure the perfect canvas for a flawless makeup application on your big day!

Incorporate your own style 

I always ask to see pictures of my brides-to-be in their everyday makeup. This is so we can create a look that reflects your personal style while still adding an element of soft glamour that so many brides strive for. Select an artist whose style aligns with your own and who you can relate to. We will discuss your style and the look you have envisioned for yourself. I will then take strategic steps to bring this to life! I want you to recognize yourself but feel like the most radiant, confident version of you!

No Experimenting Before The Wedding Day! 

Of course, within reason! If you are looking to try a different brow shape, skincare product, or beauty treatment for your wedding, then go right ahead! But in my professional opinion, nothing new in the last 3 months before your wedding day. This gives time for any reactions or bad decisions to settle down. I often recommend monthly facials to my brides at their trials. I don’t recommend starting these in the month of your wedding, just in case! A licensed professional will recommend a treatment that is gentle enough for a bride-to-be, and it’s always safer to experiment a few months in advance.
