• HOW TO KEEP YOUR BRIDAL MAKEUP FRESH ALL DAY LONG – Tips for Make-up Artists and Brides.

    We are in wedding season and with how intimate wedding events are now, we are sure to see a lot of happy brides sharing in their joy and emotions – dancing and shedding tears.

    I am happy to share expert tips on make-up products and methods to ensure your bridal makeup stays fresh and smudge proof through the tears, kissing and excessive smiling & dancing of the day.

    Fear, panic, anxiety, eat, sleep, drink, smoke, fear, panic, anxiety, eat, sleep, et cetera… and even worse, making unreasonable decisions while in this state.
