Before the Makeup Trial
Even though the makeup trial is just a consultation, having you skin at its best state helps both the makeup artist and the bride customize and create a flawless application that both parties envision. Try some of these tricks to have supple clear skin for your makeup consultation.

9-6 months prior to the wedding date incorporate professional monthly facials into your regime
On a budget, or a naturalista like myself try these DIY Food Masks:

Honey Lemon Mask (Do not exfoliate skin before using this method)
1/2 of fresh lemon
2 teaspoons of raw honey

Mix until the consistency is like that of cough syrup and apply. Leave the mixture on for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water to remove. Pat dry and apply a creamy moisturizer (I highly recommend Cetaphil). This mask only needs to be repeated once a week or twice a month depending on skin sensitivity.

Pore Shrinking Juice Mask
½ Cucumber juice
1 cup Rose water
1 tbs. Lemon juice

Mix above all the ingredients and apply it on your face. Leave it for 20 min then rinse your face. This will definitely shrink your pores.

You should maintain your eyebrows 48 hours before any makeup application to avoid redness and skin irritation. Waxing the brows is a good way to achieve a shape, however threading the brows is a cleaner more precise method, results in less irritation, and the hairs grow back slower and thinner. All facial hair removal should be done 72-48 hours before the wedding day.

Steam and Ice Method:

DIY: Boil a pot of water and apply a few drops of your favorite essential oil; Lavendar, Tea Tree, Chamomile etc. Drape your head over the pot with a towel for 10-15 minutes. Pat your face dry with a cold wash cloth. Fill a medium sized bowl with ice and then take both hands and submerge your face with the ice for 30 seconds. You now have refreshed and taught skin that is free of impurities.

At the Makeup Trial
– Always bring pictures of the beauty looks you want to achieve. Verbal descriptions leave room for dissatisfaction.

– Know what type of makeup wearer you are: Natural, Glam, Retro, etc… this is a helpful guide to what you like to see on your face.

– Understand “Natural” makeup. Many naturalistas are not accustomed to wearing layers of makeup even if the colors are muted and soft. A natural makeup application to the eye and to the camera is very different in intensity. Natural makeup means soft muted colors such as browns, pinks and beiges on the face.

– Always speak up. If you do not like to wear smoky eyes or black liner do not let any artist talk you into that look just because it is an evening wedding. As professionals there are plenty of options for evening makeup looks minus a smoky eye

-Take pictures of the finished product with a high-rez camera and make you final decision then. Remember you wedding is a lifetime event and pictures are forever

After the Makeup Trial
– Continue to maintain the beauty regimes you did before the makeup trail. Flawless skin takes consistency.

– Stay away from using new beauty products. Skin can be very sensitive so don’t risk it.

– Fall in love with lukewarm lemon water. It is a diuretic, aids digestions, boosts your immune system, clears skin, enhances your mood, freshens breath, and aids in weight loss

– Use the Steam and Ice method the night before the wedding for perfectly prep skin on the day of the wedding.

– A month away from you wedding get a hydrating facial with products you already use on your skin. No chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or intense deep pore cleansing facials that can cause ugly irritations.

– Don’t leave the house without using sun screen. Cleanse, moisturize, and protect.

Remember to treat your skin just as you would a baby. Be gentle, consistent, and leave out as many harmful chemicals as possible. Nourish your skin with natural ingredients. Makeup only enhances the natural beauty that is already there. Investing in your skin regime and a professional makeup artist will result in that flawless look you’ve always wanted.
