Whew, so we had tons of couples requesting the beautiful and romantic cherry blossoms this year, and now we are on to the summer season. Forgive the lull in updates, it has been very busy for us. But we are so excited about summer – it’s absolutely beautiful in Vancouver this time of year, so remember to enjoy it while the good weather lasts. For our pre-wedding clients, you are a lucky bunch. Summer is the most wanted season. #1 reason? It’s warm! (See how happy these couples are?)

Don’t forget the blue skies and beautiful lush scenery.

Wedding Day Makeup Tips from Ora Wedding’s Daisy

Last time, Daisy let us in on her tips for achieving the natural look. This time, she provides tips and secrets for both brides and makeup artists to achieve the most beautiful you.

Daisy’s Makeup Secrets 101

  • Get a facial a week before your wedding day. A professional facial will do wonders for the tone, clarity, and smoothness of your skin. But make sure you don’t wait until the day before, because the skin can be extra sensitive after a facial. If you’re not experienced in doing it yourself, please go to a professional – it makes a big difference!
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Dry skin is a killer for a good clean makeup application. Always make sure your skin is well moisturized. Remember, it is always easier to take down extra shine than it is to apply product on dry skin.
  • Use the right products. Don’t try anything new without testing it out beforehand. If something has worked for you before, don’t be afraid to just go with it. Your wedding day is not the day to be experimenting. That’s what the makeup trial is for (highly recommended just in case you get an allergic reaction, which can happen). But if you’re doing anything yourself, tried and true works best.
  • The right primer and concealer will do wonders. Daisy uses the following products below for a clean finish that lasts the full day, very important for the wedding day.

  • Make sure your makeup artist has hygiene practices. This cannot be taken for granted or underestimated. Dirty and unwashed brushes can spread bacteria and cause you to break out.
  • Blending is key, and the right tools are necessary. Different areas of your face require different brushes and application methods – your skin is the biggest organ on your body, and even on your face, has different sized pores. All brushes are not made equal, but the right tools and techniques, as any professional makeup artist knows, is just as important, if not moreso, than the products used.
  • And last but not least, eat healthy and get your sleep! Makeup application actually starts from the inside out. We know that sometimes it can be hard to maintain healthy habits before your wedding day, but try your best. Good sleep = good skin. Eat a well-balanced diet, with lots of nutrition. And don’t forget to get your exercise. Exercise promotes healthy blood flow, which actually does wonders for your skin. You’ll get that natural glow you’ve always wanted, and that is always a great start for any makeup application.

    So there you have it, Daisy’s tips and secrets for excellent makeup application. If you ever have any questions, she will be more than happy to answer any inquiries to make sure that you will look your best on your wedding day. And if you’re a 2011 bride, remember to book Daisy early – she’s going to have a busy wedding season, as always.
