Continuing the pampering theme, I also like to give my brides a mini facial massage to help them relax and increase circulation.

I usually add Fresh’s Deep Hydration Serum to my hands, apply it to the bride’s face and watch it glide over the skin like a dream.

This serum gives skin an intense moisture boost and a dewy, plumped look – the key to the “glow from within” look that all brides love.

Have you ever wondered how brides can do their makeup in the morning and still look flawless at the after-party?

I think the Mehron Skin Prep Pro might be professional makeup artist’s best kept secret for keeping makeup looking fresh after hours.

It can help makeup last in stressful situations — including hours of taking pictures and gracing the dance floor — by creating a moisture barrier between skin and makeup.

This two-in-one priming moisturizer is a rich cream that leaves skin visibly glowing and prepped for smooth, flawless makeup application.

I also love that Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Primer is great for both oily and dry skin types.

This product name is pretty self-explanatory, and who doesn’t want shiny makeup?

At this point in the routine, I intentionally use a lot of luminous products. I spend a lot of time (and money) on skin prep because a bride’s base can make or break her makeup.

This Laneige Glowy Makeup Serum gives skin a radiant finish and helps makeup last longer.

Velvet lashes are my go-to when I want a natural look and optimal comfort for my brides.

Whether you prefer a more natural or “mascara-like” look or are looking for dramatic lashes, Velor’s false lashes are perfect for any bride.

These lashes are vegan, come in a range of different styles, and have nearly invisible bands to give them an incredibly natural look.

Patrick Ta Major Glow body oil is ideal for a sun-kissed décolleté.

This Patrick Ta Major Glow Body Oil Spray is my secret weapon for creating healthy, glowing skin.

The body oil comes in three shades and smells amazing.

I spray it all over my bride’s neckline and arms to hydrate the skin and achieve a sunkissed glow without any greasy effect.

These Anastasia Beverly Hills cheek products might be my all-time favorite blushes.

These cream blushes help me create the perfect dewy color on all skin tones.

Anastasia Beverly Hills cream blushes have a buildable formula, give the face a natural, radiant finish and blend seamlessly into the skin.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Fixer is the final step for skin-like makeup.

This is another Charlotte Tilbury staple and is truly my favorite setting spray to use on all of my clients.

According to Sephora’s website, Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray is “a hydrating, alcohol-free and oil-free spray that sets makeup weightlessly for up to 16 hours without blending, fading, or settling into fine lines,” which is exactly what every bride needs.
