  1. Skin Preparation is Key: The key to beautiful skin on your wedding day is to start early! Ideally, begin your skincare regimen at least six months before the big day to address any concerns and achieve the best possible results. But, if your big day is fast approaching and you’re running out of time, you should at least schedule one facial a week to 10 days prior– sooner if you have never had one before to remedy any unanticipated purging!
  2. Schedule Your Makeup Trial in Advance: Now, this step is super important! Schedule a trial makeup session with your makeup artist to ensure that you are over the moon with the final look and to confirm that the makeup products are compatible with your skincare routine. This will help identify any products or ingredients that may cause irritation or allergic reactions.
  3. Come Prepared for Your Makeup Trial: Preparation never hurt! If you go to your trial appointment with inspirational photos to reference, the better your makeup artist can cultivate the glam of your dreams. Additionally, you should bring a list of all your special event dates that you may want makeup done to meet your needs!
  4. Consider Dermaplaning: Ask your makeup artist if she thinks you will benefit from Dermaplaning for the big day. Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation technique that removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the skin’s surface. This results in a smooth, even complexion, perfect for flawless makeup application on your wedding day!
  5. Personalized Makeup Looks: Bridal makeup in 2024 is all about personalization, as it should be! We want to work together to create looks that reflect their individual style and personality. Whether it’s minimalistic, classic, bohemian, or trendsetting, we’ll use makeup to enhance your natural beauty while staying true to who you are.
  6. Photography-Friendly Makeup: Bridal makeup is designed to look flawless both in person and in photographs. It’s something to truly think about! Our makeup artist is skilled in using products and techniques that photograph beautifully under different lighting conditions.
  7. Natural Elegance: As mentioned earlier, bridal makeup is all about enhancing your natural beauty. We’ll focus on creating a timeless look that highlights your best features while still feeling like you. We’ll talk about your favorite features, if you have any that you would prefer to pay extra attention to, and more—all during your trial!
  8. Statement Lips: While soft, neutral lips are always classic, don’t hesitate to make a statement with your lip color! We’ve seen brides choose bold reds, romantic berries, and even soft pinks that add a touch of personality to their look.
  9. Focus on Eyes: The eyes are the windows to the soul, as they say, and on your wedding day, we’ll make sure they shine! From subtle shimmer to sultry smoky looks, we’ll create eye makeup that dazzles!
  10. Your Vision Matters: Your wedding day is all about you, and your makeup should reflect your personal style and vision. Whether you prefer a soft, romantic look or something more bold and dramatic, we’ll tailor your makeup to suit your preferences!

We hope these tips and trends were helpful in your planning process! We look forward to working with you to ensure your wedding day skin and glam is as memorable as you’ve always dreamed of!
