5 Steps to Beauty Bliss


Make-up Artist David Frohmberg of Faces by Frohmberg at Salon International shares his tips to getting your skin and hair in top form before your wedding.


So, you are engaged....now what?!


Between the meetings, work, family, fittings and tastings it is really important to think about one of the most important parts of the wedding - you, and how you look. It is really easy to get caught up into a schedule of do, do, do and then you wake up one morning and realize that you are getting married tomorrow, you have roots to your ears, your nails are chipped, your back is a road map of tan lines, you have a zit because of all the stress that has built up.


Take a deep breath - all of that can be avoided by scheduling in time for you to make sure that your hair and skin is in top condition for your wedding.


1. Hire Hair and Makeup


Start looking for a hair and makeup artist for your wedding - it is essential because 95% of the photos at the wedding will be of you, and you want to look effortlessly flawless. Some brides like to use friends or relatives for this part - this is usually free. Unfortunately, sometimes you get what you pay for. Make sure you use licensed professionals - they know how to keep things sanitary, use professional grade products, and they do this for a living - not as a hobby. Licensed professionals will use products that will look amazing on film, last for hours (sometimes until the next day) and will arrive and be finished on schedule.


WED The Magazine 2. Think Skin


It is best to start a facial schedule with an esthetician. Some minor skin conditions like acne and large pores or sun damage like freckles can be "fixed" with the proper regimen of professional care. Also talk with them to find a good at home kit to continue nourishing and protecting your skin. Don't forget to ask about a good broad spectrum sunscreen to keep the sun's damage to a minimum.

People still want to have that "San Tropez" look even though they don't have a yacht and they don't want the sun damage. There are many UV free ways to enhance the skin's glow from drug store and department store moisturizers that promise "gradual tan with use" to more expensive spray tans.
