Guest Blogger: Take His Breath Away Bridal Looks by Jules de Jesus
When thinking of your wedding day, most think of how they will look. Being timeless, flawless, and gorgeous is all a must for any bride. But what exactly does that mean? I’ll try to explain and hopefully help you with your makeup concerns. Who am I? My name is Jules De Jesus. I’m a Professional Makeup Artist and Founder of Dollface by Jules. I have well over 13 years of pro experience specializing in bridal makeup. I have had the honor of being apart of so many weddings. I simply love what I do! Enough about me, let’s talk wedding day makeup.
So what does being “timeless” mean? Basically, you don’t want to follow trends for your special day. If you don’t normally wear red lipstick, don’t try it on your big day. Stay true to your self by looking like you on your day. Your fiancé already thinks you are the most beautiful girl in the world, so try to concentrate on being a flawless version of yourself. So with that being said, let’s move to being flawless.
How does one look flawless? I’ll tackle this in two parts. First, start with some sort of beauty routine before your wedding day. Make sure to exfoliate, moisturize, & use SPF 30+ every day for beautiful skin. This way your skin will look great and less “covering up” will be needed. Also, always have a trial run. It’s best for you and your makeup artist (MUA). Your MUA will need to see your skin in person to make proper recommendations. For my brides, I often give personalized skin care tips during the trial. Have your trial as close to the wedding day as possible. Your skin will be almost exactly what it will be on the big day.
Second, hire a professional. A Pro MUA will apply the same techniques and tricks they use on models for photo shoots. This means you won’t need to panic over dark circles or pesky blemishes. While models may look amazing in magazines, you can be sure they don’t show up on set looking picture perfect. Makeup artists are trained to use cosmetics to create the illusion of flawless skin.
Not only will you look flawless, but you will feel gorgeous. Take time out for you, being pampered and letting pros do what they do goes along way in taking away extra stress. My partner in beauty, Tiffony Simpson of Ony Salon, and I work very hard on creating the best experience for our brides. We are always honored to be a part of every special day and wedding. We will try our very best to make the experience with us as memorable, professional, & as fun as possible.
Be timeless, flawless, and feel gorgeous. It’s your day to be the belle of the ball, so do it right!
