The Fountain Spa’s Bridal Beauty Tips:

Think Skincare“Makeup can only cover so much. Drink plenty of water and apply moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.”
Go Pro … “Many makeup artists are self-taught from social media. Make sure your pro is certified and has invested in his or her education.”
Be Prepared … “Schedule your hair and makeup trial three to six months prior to your wedding day.”
Get Visual … “Bring pictures of your dress and the hairstyles you like to your trials”

Dramatic Elegance

At left and in the cover photo below: “I love when brides want to accentuate their eyes! Using my Too Faced Natural Lust palette, I popped Courtney’s gorgeous blue eyes with coppers and rusts, applying the colors in a “halo” effect to define her eye shape. Demi Wispies from Ardell are my go-to false lashes.” ... “This romantic dress inspired me to create a soft wave, using a 1-1/2 inch Hot Tools curling iron, Kevin Murphy Doo.Over on the roots for lift, Kenra Design Spray 9 to set the curls, and Sudzz AeroFixx finishing spray to lock the style in place.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 1642)

“The romanticism of the gown inspired me to keep Courtney’s makeup very light and fresh. Temptu Hydra Lock airbrush foundation is a must for brides, as it provides all-day wear with a lightweight feel. I chose to give her a light pink lip using my NARS palette to complement the subtlety of the look.” ... “This look has the same hairstyle as the look at left, but I replaced the headband with unique hair jewelry.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 1643)

“Bumping Courtney’s look up to a dramatic evening look, I grabbed a plum from my NARS palette to intensify her lip color. I also added a little extra contour using my Shade + Light palette from Kat Von D to bring out her cheekbones.” ... “I wanted to show off her gorgeous face so I pinned the hair and turned up the volume with this style! I used a 1-inch Hot Tools curling iron to create the waves, Kenra Design Spray 9 to comb out the curls, and Sudzz AeroFixx finishing spray to set the style!” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 4375)
