Its wedding season and my makeup appointment calendar is filling up. I love working on bridal makeup but its loveliness begins so much deeper than the makeup on our skin. Here are my bridal beauty tips for all you brides to be.

Start using a great skincare regime now! Your skin needs time to adjust to new products and begin to look fresher.

Exfoliate 1-2 times a week! Make sure your skin care regime has an exfoliant in it, that will help with skin cell turn over. This step will help your moisturizer to absorb better into your skin and also help your makeup to sit on the surface better.

Mask your skin after exfoliating with either a hydrating or oil absorbing mask depending on your skin type.

Drink lots of water.

Put as many good things in your body as possible.

Maintain a regular sleep schedule.

Book a trial with your makeup artist and come prepared with visual examples of what you want your makeup to look like so everyone is on the same page.

Go for the false lashes. If there was ever a day to add a little drama or fluffiness to your look, your wedding day is that day.

Smile, the most beautiful look on a bride is her smile.
