Ask the Experts

It’s a new month and today we’ve got brand new wedding tips from a local wedding vendor we have the pleasure of working with at every Hitched Happy Hour! Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry provides a unique beauty experience for brides on their wedding day.  Years of experience have taught Christine a thing or two about the dos and don’ts of wedding makeup and she was kind enough to share some of her favorite tips and tricks with us.

1. Be Yourself

When choosing a makeup look for your wedding day, don’t stray too far from how you normally wear your makeup. Your wedding pictures will last forever and you don’t want to regret going with a “trend” instead of looking just like you.

Christine offers brides makeup trials at every Hitched Happy Hour

2. Take Care of Your Skin

About 6 months before the wedding, consult a skin care specialist for a facial and regular treatments. Go in for your final facial no later than one month before the big day.

Ready or Knot Bride – Emily & Mike

Today is chalked full of beauty. We have another stunning Ready or Knot bride for you! Many of you saw the handy work of Dani Cooper from Boss Studios and Christine from Blush Makeup Artistry last week at Hitched Happy Hour and might we say that they both did a fantastic job making todays featured bride, Emily, look extra beautiful in her Modern Trousseau wedding dress. A huge shout out to The Mullers who always amaze us with their incredible photography skills.
