My Top Ten Beauty Rules for Brides

  1. For those brides with thin or sparse eyelashes, please use an eyeliner to create thickness between the lashes and dust your lashes with powder in between coats to create really thick lashes
  2. Damp eye shadow can be used as a liner for those brides that want a more natural look
  3. A great highlighter is essential for a bride. It can be used under the brow bone to give more of an arch, above the cupid’s bow on the lips to create fullness and you can even mix it in with your foundation to create a luminous glow
  4. Keep your brows neat and tidy and always fill them in with a brow pencil, powder or gel. You can also watch my video on how to thread your eyebrows.  This should be done a few days before your wedding
  5. For those brides with dry skin, use a foundation and brush with a cream formula
  6. Brush your lips with a toothbrush or use a lip exfoliator to prepare them for a smooth lip application
  7. Use lipliner all over the lips, this will give it a better finish and will hold your lipstick for longer
  8. I love false lashes on my brides whether using a strip lash or applying individual lashes. Make sure you practice how to put them on a few weeks before your wedding
  9. Use a yellow based concealer as it helps camouflage any redness or purple undertones
  10. Use a long-wear lipstick on your wedding day. This will allow you to eat, drink and kiss your husband without wearing off your beautiful lipstick

My model, Kimberly (pictured below), had beautiful flawless skin in her shoot and only needed a thin layer of foundation.  Foundation should only be used to balance out skin tone, not to cover your whole face.
