Wedding Wednesdays - Wanda

Last week I received photos of my bride Wanda from photographer Amy Halstead.  I absolutely loved working with Wanda and am so happy she contacted me after her previous makeup artist cancelled on her.  Yep, you heard that right. Her artist CANCELLED! Who does that?!  Not me!  That's why I have these pictures :) Enjoy!


Throwing on a few individual lashes.


A little mascara to finish them off.  Can you please take a second to look at her killer cheek bones?!  Love!


Happily getting a spritz of makeup setting spray.


And we have one happy and beautiful bride.

Here is the review Wanda left on The Knot:

AMANDA WITH LACE COSMETICS IS AMAZINGIf you want to look stunning on your wedding day, choose Lace Cosmetics/Lace on Location. Amanda made me feel like I was the most beautiful bride. She also did make-up for my bridesmaids and mother, and everyone loved her. She was always available for questions that arose via phone/text/email. She was on time and very professional. But, most of all...she did an IMPECCABLE job on my makeup! She was an absolute delight to work with! And I received a lip gloss from her line. This is the best lip gloss  I have ever owned!!

Wedding Day Glow...Yes or No?


A common practice for the soon to be Bride (and some grooms) is getting that healthy wedding day glow.  Everyone looks better with a little extra color.  I repeat...a little extra color.  I will give you tips on how to get that beautiful bronze you desire without having the "muddy" or "pumpkin" look.

Do your research before you spray.  The more pale you are, the more likely you are to get that "pumpkin" look.  Not cute.  As I have said before, my favorite system is Versa Spa.  I'm very pale and Versa will always turn me a nice golden color without that pumpkinesque look.  Another great option is to have an actual person spray you.  There are great companies you can hire that will bring a pop up booth to your house or you can go to tanning salons where this service is offered.

Also, make sure you know how the system works before you get in!  You don't want a "Ross" situation.

For step by step instructions on how to spray tan, read our previous post To Spray or Not To Spray...Is It Really A Question?

If you prefer to get your color in a tanning bed, this is an option with little prep time and a good dose of Vitamin D.  Your tan will be more natural and last longer.
