Babydoll Weddings Beauty: Benefits of Skin Toner

Over the years facial brands have evolved. Before toner use to be really harsh  because they use to contain alcohol. We now know that it’s best to use alcohol free products , as it can really dry the skin. Toners can have a variety of uses such as a pre-moisturizer, anti-aging, hydrating, soothing, mattifying, and most importantly to minimize the appearance of pores.  A great trick is to apply toner right when you get out of a hot shower because the steam really cleans up your pores and allows the toner to settle in. Here’s a list of some of our favorite toners from our stylist:

Babydoll Weddings Beauty: The Importance Booking a Trial

A makeup and hair trial is a great way to make sure you get your makeup and hair the exact way you want it for your wedding. It’s a great time to get to know your stylist before the big day. It gives you time to make big decisions like do you prefer an up-do or to wear your hair down. Do you prefer traditional makeup or airbrush. It’s that kind of interaction and feedback with your stylist that will make you feel more confident when you meet again on your wedding date.

After getting your makeup and hair done go hang out in different light (afternoon, night), take pictures, and let friends see it. That way you can see what it will look like at different times, and in pictures and you’ll be even more excited about it!
