As wedding stylist we really don’t step out to anything other than behind the scenes, but in all honesty those behind the scene moment are so crucial. It’s really important that the bride and her wedding party look their best. We recently had such a great time doing Daniella’s wedding at the Windmill Winery. Our stylist Amanda, Rachel, Sam, Alyssa, and Kedisha we’re total rockstars! Click more to see how the look came all together.
As your wedding date gets closer and closer you might start getting less and less sleep. After all the planning the day is almost there and your left up at night making sure everything is alright and thinking about every detail in you head “Did I make that last deposit?” “Do I really like my bridesmaids dresses” “Will the decorations match everything perfectly” In the end all those lingering thoughts will leave you with very little sleep and some serious under eye bags. Have no fear we asked some of our stylist what the best under eye creams are.

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:
Astara AHA Nutrient Toning Essense Lush Toner Water
Korres Pomergranate Toner Nars Multi-Action Hydrating Toner

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!
