Babydoll Weddings Beauty Secret: Applying Under-Eye Concealer

There’s nothing less satisfying than not getting those full 8 hours of sleep, and when if comes to planning your wedding, or just dealing with everyday life it can be hard. Thank goodness for the magic and wonders of concealer! Now you might be used to putting on your concealer by tracing a half-moon right on the dark circles under your eyes, but for a more seamless look try tracing a downward triangle. This way the bottom point reaches the apples of your cheeks and the other two points should reach the corners of your eyes. This trick helps you blend the color with the rest of your face while also highlighting your cheeks! Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Babydoll Weddings Beauty Secret: Glowing Skin For The Winter

759578cc4e324fd2d4ed01ac90c4f797The beauty and power of makeup will never cease to amaze me. With simple color combinations one can hide darks circles or scaring or create a beautiful smoky eye, but one look that we have learned every bride desires is that natural glow. While this can be achieved with makeup, really achieving this look starts with habits long before you sit in the makeup chair and get dolled up for your big day.

Protect Your Skin
Signs of aging and sun damage can start to appear as early as your 20’s and then become more and more apparent by your 30’s. No soon-to-be-bride wants that! By starting a routine to protect and preserve your skin in your 20’s and continue it (even after your wedding) will be the best thing you can do! Cleanse, moisturizer, sunscreen (even in the winter) and a serum that offers protection and renewal for your skin.

Always Make Sure To Exfoliate
If you are battling any type of skin concern, whether it be dryness and dullness or even acne can be helped with an exfoliator. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and whatever dirt or oil may be on your skin. On top of your skin looking great it also feels great great. We suggest in doing this 2-3 times a week. And to really bump up your skin routine try adding a pore minimizer serum to help tighten the look of pores and reduce their appearence.

Dark Circles? No thank you!
Nothing screams tired or run down quite like under eye dark circles do. Those pesky shadows that no foundation or concealer can’t quite hide. The solution? An eye cream that targets the bags, puffiness and dark circles. Bonus if it offer hydration!

Don’t Let The Rest of Your Body Feel Left Out 
Your face isn’t the only part of your body that needs hydration and care; you can’t forget about your arms and legs! Applying lotion two times day helps your skin feel hydrated and of course smooth and silky. To achieve that summer glow all year long try using a toning lotion in the morning and a deep hydrating lotion at night. Bonus if it has green tea in it which helps skin look more defined and toned!

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:
