When you've been doing wedding makeup as long as I have you pick up on some tips along the way, these are the ones I say the most. It's easy for us to cover a blemish but tan lines, ugh that's a different story!

Follow my best tips to avoid any wedding makeup faux pas!


  • ​Have your makeup artist provide you and your bridesmaids with lipstick samples and a brush for you to touch-up


  • Bring or ask your makeup artist for oil blotting papers to use through out the day if you have oily skin and have a translucent powder with you


  • Avoid tan lines by wearing a bathing suit that matches your dress top and tell your bridesmaids to do the same


  • Try to catch tears before they fall by folding a tissue and placing it at your waterline


  • Well moisturized skin looks best so use a day and night moisturizer and a tooth brush to exfoliate lips


  • Avoid waxing your face 3 days before the wedding and schedule your facial up to one week before
