Brianna & Natalie’s Bridal Beauty Tips:

Get Visual … “Have pictures of the hairstyle you want and make sure to set trials for about 3-6 months ahead of your wedding date.”
Look Perfect in Every Picture … “Go for an airbrush makeup foundation! With its longevity and high coverage weightless feel, you will look perfect in your pictures.”
Get Coordinated … “Make your hair and makeup trial appointment the same week as your dress fitting, to get a better overall feel for your wedding day look.”

“My approach to beauty is ‘be yourself,’ ” says makeup artist Brianna Lyn Gregory. “If you want to wear bright pink lipstick in winter, go for it! When I am consulting with a bride, I ask questions to find out more about her personality and style so I can create a makeup look to reflect her.”

Beach Bride

“When I saw this dress, I thought ‘Beach Wedding,’ " says Natalie, "so I did a side swept twisted braid to show off her toned shoulders.”
“The side braid hairstyle inspired me to create a siren-like look," says Brianna. "I used dark brown and green shadows from YSL on her eyes to bring forth a sultry smokey eye. Ardell Demi Wispies strip lashes added to this effect.” (Gown: Jude Jowilson, Hedy, $3,850)

“The ruffles in the dress inspired a shabby chic look," says Natalie. "I used a 1-inch Hot Tools Marcel iron, set it with SUDZZfx AeroFixx hairspray, and finished using Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER to add texture. BELLAMI hair extensions added length.”
“Seeing the gown and hairstyle," says Brianna, "I immediately thought ‘Starlet’ and a Hollywood-inspired iconic red lip. MAKE UP FOR EVER lip palette created that perfect pout. Temptu Hydra Lock Foundation is best for making the skin look dewy and creating an even complexion. Makeup Forever Aqua Brow lets her brows last all day long." (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG805, $1,258)
