Five tips on Preparing for Make Up from Angela

How you treat your skin before that big day goes a long way.  Especially in our cold, windy San Francisco's "summer"!  Cold weather can create a lack of moisture, leaving your skin in a more vulnerable state.  Here are some tips to ensure that your skin has that beautiful, glowing texture that all brides desire.

1.) Always: Before you go to bed, remove make-up with a high quality make-up cleanser, tone, and follow with a heavy moisturizer.
2.) Especially during cold weather: Lips need special attention, so, always start with a moisturizer (I love Burt's Bee's) before applying lipstick.

3.) The Day before your wedding: Use a serum, after toning and before moisturizing. This will help your skin to retain a maximum moisture balance.
4.) The day of: Use a mild exfoliator (not a mask) to eliminate dead skin and create a smooth, clean surface.
5.) Please, no tweezing or waxing at least 3 days before to avoid any redness or swelling.

Now you are READY to let your make-up artist take over the reins, while you relax and enjoy your big day!
