Behind the Brand

Favorite beauty products?

We are big fan of Charlotte Tilbury and Tom Ford makeup products. Best bridal beauty products often include: Long-wearing foundations like Estée Lauder Double Wear or NARS. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is commonly favored for its longevity. For the blush: NARS Orgasm and Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk are well-loved for their pigmentation and longevity.

Remember, the best products depend on individual preferences and skin types, so a trial run with a makeup artist can help find what works best for your bridal look.

What is your process of conceptualizing hair and makeup looks with brides and bridesmaids ahead of the wedding day?

To conceptualize hair and makeup looks for brides and bridesmaids, I consider factors like personal style, dress details, and the overall wedding theme. Discussing preferences, exploring reference images, and collaborating with the individuals involved helps create a tailored and cohesive look that enhances their natural beauty and aligns with the wedding’s aesthetic.

What’s your advice for brides when deciding on bridal hair and makeup looks?

When deciding on bridal hair and makeup looks, my advice is to consider your personal style, the wedding theme, and the dress details. Opt for a timeless and comfortable look that enhances your features. Schedule a trial to ensure you’re happy with the chosen style, and communicate openly with your makeup artist and hairstylist to achieve the desired outcome on your special day.

What tips, tricks or advice do you have for brides to increase the longevity of their bridal makeup?

To increase the longevity of bridal hair and makeup:

  1. Primer: Use a quality primer before applying makeup to create a smooth base and help it last longer.
  2. Setting Spray: Finish the makeup with a setting spray to set everything in place and keep it looking fresh throughout the day.
  3. Waterproof Products: Opt for waterproof or water-resistant makeup products, especially for eyes and lips.
  4. Trial Run: Conduct a trial run before the wedding day to identify any potential issues and ensure the chosen products work well for your skin.
  5. Touch-Up Kit: Prepare a touch-up kit with essentials like lipstick, blotting papers, and small brushes for quick fixes during the day.
  6. Weather Considerations: Consider the weather conditions on your wedding day and choose products accordingly. For example, matte finishes can be more resilient in hot and humid weather.
  7. Hair Setting Techniques: Discuss with your hairstylist about techniques and products to ensure your hairstyle stays intact. Hairpins and hairspray can be helpful.
  8. Stay Hydrated and Blot: Stay hydrated to keep your skin looking fresh. Use blotting papers to remove excess oil without disturbing your makeup.

Remember, communication with your makeup artist and hairstylist is key to achieving a long-lasting bridal look that suits your preferences and stands up to the demands of the day.
