Most woman think that makeup will fix everything. Well, I’ve got news for you ladies. IT WON’T!!!! Every bride wants amazing flawless skin but this is something I Can’t do on my own as an artist. Skin needs daily attention and I know some of you will say I don’t have time and a thousand other excuses…I have more news for you ummmm yes you do. It only takes a few min’s of your day in the shower. I can’t express how important it is to cleanse, tone, moisturise and exfoliate on a daily basis. Below is a step by step guide on how to prepare your skin for your wedding day:
1) Gently wash your face. Our faces are exposed to external factors (wind, rain, sunshine etc) continuously and this results in the forming of dead dells on the surface of our skin.
Make sure you buy a non abrasive gentle wash, place a little product on your finger’s add warm water and gently massage into skin using circular movements.
Concentrate on rough areas like nose or chin. avoid eye area. Rinse product off with warm water, pat your face dry and be gentle.
2) Use a toner. After a face scrub it is important to use a toner. This will close pores freshen your skin and remove any remaining impurity. Use cotton to swipe your face with a toner. Avoid eye area. Do not rinse off the toner. It dries instantly.
3) Moisturize moisturize moisturize!!!! The all important step to healthy skin, I cannot emphasize this enough. Your skin needs hydration to keep it nouished and healthy. The difference is huge. TIP: Whichever moisturizer you choose make sure it has a built in SPF15 at least to block out damaging skin rays. Moisturizer should be applied morning before makeup and at night before going to bed.
This simple makeup essentials 3 step routine will keep your face looking fresh and healthy.
Ohhhhhh I almost forgot another tip. Make sure your drinking plenty of water. You’d be amazed at what water can do for you internally and externally.
Happy skincare ladies!!!!

Danika booked me in well over a year before her wedding day and I’m blessed to have been a part of her big day. She sure is a hottie..
It came as no surprise that with Danika’s bridal look I wanted to make her eyes pop and ensure her skin was highlighted and contoured. Now, highlighting and contouring has been around for so long thanks to the Kardashian’s, but it’s only recently become the new hype and a lot more makeup artists are implementing it into their bridal makeup looks. ( I’ll write more about highlight and contour in another post) The key to contouring is BLEND BLEND BLEND.
So for Danika’s wedding day look these are the key products that I used:
Complexion: Mac Studio Fix Fluid mixed with Mac Sculpt Foundation. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Powder Palette. Mac Soft and Gentle highlighter
Eyes: Urban Decay Eye shadow Primer, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Model Rock Individual lashes
Lips: Urban decay Lip liner In Obsessed Mac Long wear Lip glass Patience Please
Step up your eye makeup game with some glamorous false lashes.
Falsies add definition and depth to eyes that mascara just can’t replicate.
False lashes are a bridal makeup look “must have”. I personally love individual false lashes. Although my makeup kit is fully stocked both with full strips and individuals. I know with individuals once there put on properly no matter how much the bride cries or how windy it is there not moving. There incredibly lightweight and the beauty of them is I can make them look like a full strip without the added heaviness. From simple to glam individual lashes are amazing..
They look incredible with a winged eye liner, easy to maintain and easier to fall in love with. False eyelashes open up your eyes, making them appear larger and brighter. Plus what’s more glamorous than batting your false lashes at your husband!!!
Once you schedule your bridal makeup trial at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll go through and show you the stunning lashes I have in my kit.
