The Importance of a Bridal Hair Trial

You don't need any surprises with your hairstyle on your wedding day.  To avoid the stress of redoing your hair on the morning of your wedding, have a trial done at least one month before the big day.  That way, you can be assured that any tweaking that needs to be done will happen "before" not "on" your wedding day.  Bring your hair accessories and veil to your trial.  Ask your hairdresser to show you how to remove your headpiece with little or no damage to your updo, and practice removing it while you are at the salon.

What is Airbrush Makeup?

Airbrush makeup is applied with a special air compressor, which sprays a gentle mist of fine pigment onto the skin.  It is the preferred application method for Brides and their wedding parties.  Some benefits of using airbrush over the traditional application includes the features below:

* Flawless and natural, giving a sheer but full coverage allowing the skin to glow through, never looking cakey.

* Fine pigment is weightless making it perfect for those who do not wear much makeup on a daily basis.

* You will look like yourself, only better.

* Transfer-free, meaning the makeup will not smudge or wipe onto the Groom or your clothing.

* Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, so it is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities.

* It looks fabulous in print giving you picture-perfect portraits.

ChooseYour Lipstick Based on the Look You're After

Choose your lipstick formula based on the look you want to achieve and your own body chemistry.   A matte lipstick will give you pigment that is long-lasting, but it won't moisturize your lips.  Stains usually last a little longer too, but the color is usually subtle.  If you have dry lips, your best bet is to use moisture-rich creams and glossy lipsticks.  This photo is the professional work of makeup artist Tammara LoMedico.

Wear Your Bridesmaid Gown Again!

Are you feeling like your Bridesmaid Gown is a  purchase you will wear only once?  Think again!  You can have your gown easily restyled into a new cocktail or party dress.  For most designs, all your seamstress will have to do is cut off the bottom and you have a brand new dress you can wear again and again.
