Bridal Tips from a Makeup Artist

One of the top Questions we get asked by brides or clients is what should I do or prep before I meet you? So I decided to put together a few tips that help us Hair & Makeup Artists.

1. If tweezing or waxing the eyebrows, do so at least one to two days prior to makeup application  (skin around brows can become irritated and will not accept eye shadows smoothly).

2. Please make sure your face is completely washed of all old makeup or oil

3. Make sure face is moisturized at least 30 mins before our arrival

4. Wear a shirt that zips or buttons up the front so that you don't have to pull clothing over your head after your hair & makeup has been applied.

5. If getting hair done Its best to wash it the night before as natural oils help the hair style last longer, but if you MUST wash it the day of please make sure hair is completely blow dried this helps speed up the process. We don't want to be rushing ;)

Hope these tips help

Our First Bridal Expo

So this year we decided what better way to Introduce ourselves to the wedding world then at the Bridal Spectacular Expo in August 2013. When we were thinking what theme did we want our booth to look like we decided on the shabby chic look. Vintage/Antique is super in right now in weddings. We also wanted the Soon to be Brides to feel like their in their home not a salon. So we did alot of touches of burlap and lil knick knacks from home. We really didnt know what to expect when we arrived but lots of Help from Our Lead Makeup Artist Husband we pulled it off.
