Tips for the Blushing Bride
Jun 2010

Hello Friends! Wedding season is in full effect, and it always warms my heart when a blushing bride wants a member of the Laura Geller team to do her makeup for her special day. It is such a honor to be with the bride, and her family and friends during this momentous occasion, and I always love being a part of each woman’s wedding history.  I take such pride in my work and it warms my heart to know that I (or we) have had a hand in making a Bride’s day special.  In fact, a lot of the reason I am where I am today is because of the wedding makeup I did early in my career. 

I am always asked for quick and easy tips for one’s wedding day, so I thought I would document a few of them here.  And these tips aren’t just for brides!  

- Take care of beauty treatments, such as facials and waxing at least 2 weeks before the wedding. These can temporarily irritate the skin so please give your skin time to recover.

- Skin that “glows” is soft and complimentary to the camera, so experiment with a dewy complexion, but remember, dewy doesn’t equal oily.

- Waterproof mascara is a must! You never know who’s speech will bring you in tears. Waterproof eyeliner helps, too!

- Use a lipstick sealer to ensure that your lipstick lasts for hours. You can also apply loose powder on top for even better results.

- Let a friend or relative be responsible for holding your makeup essentials and making sure you are touched up periodically during the reception.  Chances are, you probably won’t remember to check your own makeup throughout the night.

Follow these tips and you are certain to have a goof-proof night!

Speaking of goof-proof, tonight from 5 - 8PM I will be holding my “Meet the Masters” with Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day and Barbara Hannah Grufferman, Author of New Book "The Best of Everything After 50." Stop by – I would love to meet you!

There’s a lot of fun going on and I hope you will join us!
