Flawless Face: Tips from Professional Makeup Artist CaraSue Hall

Special feature by CaraSue Hall of CH Makeup Artistry Your wedding day is the one day in your life that you will be photographed more than any other. Always try to schedule a makeup trial before your big day to make sure that the look is exactly what you want. It not only helps you, but also helps the makeup artist/hair stylist. As much as you would like to have that super dramatic look for your wedding, a softer look is better. You can still have dramatic that is soft and beautiful. Remember, you will be looking at your pictures (and so will everyone else) for years to come. Keep in mind, a trend today is not going to be a trend in 10 years. If your bridesmaids want dramatic, then let them go for it! Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize all the way up to your wedding day! This includes your face and your lips. Your makeup will look so much better and will apply much easier. Exfoliating your skin a few times a week, a few weeks before the wedding will help to make your skin look radiant. Take care of your lips, too, so that you will have a smooth, soft-looking lip. If you are having problems with them being overly chapped, apply Vaseline or Vick's VapoRub to a toothbrush to exfoliate them. If you are waxing, please do it at least week in advance in case of a breakout. It's hard to cover hives and peeled off skin! If you are receiving a facial, again, please do it at least a week in advance for the same reasons. Tanning is ok. Don't over-tan yourself to where your makeup looks totally off. The more that you tan, the more shine you will produce in your pictures. Don't decide that you want to try a new product in the days before your event. Try it out at least 2 weeks beforehand. Let people take care of you for your special day. You have worked and stressed hard enough planning everything! Get pampered a little... it's worth it! Hair and makeup services are a great gift for your bridesmaids, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, etc. - It allows all of you to be together - You won't have the unexpected hair and makeup disaster with the one bridesmaid who likes to wear loads of makeup - It allows everyone to look nice for pictures - And, best of all, it allows your lovely ladies to be pampered as well!
