Makeup & Hairstyling Tips for your Wedding day
What you should know before your special day...
HAIR: If you are getting your hair trim/colored/cut/perm, do it at least 10 days prior to your wedding day. If you don't like the color/perm you have at least a weeks leeway to change it or fix it.
NAILS: Do your manicure and pedicure at least 2 days before, if you do it before the 2 day period, you might end up having a chip in your nails, or accidently scuff it due to daily activities.
WAXING: We recommend any waxing (eyebrow, upper lips, underarms, Brazilian) that is done, be done no later than 72 hour prior to the event. Normally when waxing is done, you have visible signs of inflammation (redness), and sometimes have sensitivity to wax products. If you have never tried waxing before, go ahead and do it 3 months before your event just to try it out. If waxing is not your thing, there are other alternatives to hair removal.....threading, laser, and good old fashion plucking.
FACIALS: If you are going to get a facial before the big day, we recommend you doing it 10 days before the event. Normally when doing a facial, the face is being deep cleaned. Most times when you deep cleanse the face, it draws up deep hidden dirt and bacteria, which could lead to break outs. There are a lot of different facials, some offer you to do a facial that would make your skin glow, and they may recommend you do it a day before. Please consult a license esthetician before doing a facial.
TATTOOS: From facial tattoos (eyebrows/eyeliner/lipliner) to body tattoos... you want to make sure that they are fully healed..do it at least one month before the wedding. When you do facial tattoos, it usually looks darker in the beginning, and then fades a few weeks after.

Tried this product out today...normally I use too face primer.
The texture is just like of regular primers you buy at drugstores or even sephora.
I wore it for about 8 hrs today and my makeup stayed flawless.
More testing and an updated review will be posted

- Your natural eyelashes should not get wet for a minimum of two hours; 48 hours would be ideal to allow the adhesive properly to bond to a dry eyelash (soggy eyelashes do not make for a good adhesion). A dry washcloth can be rolled up and placed over your brows when you shower to protect your extensions from becoming totally saturated.
- Do not use regular or waterproof mascara. Most brands of mascara contain chemical properties and oils that will break down the adhesive. Removing mascara from your lashes can cause the extensions to fall off prematurely as well. If you want to further enhance your lash extensions, we have a specially formulated eyelash extension mascara that is ideal for coating your extensions. Ask your lash stylist for more information.
- Take special care around the eye area when cleansing your face. Gently cleanse the eye area and do not scrub or rug your eyes. Avoid any type of oil-based product around the eyes. Again, the oils will break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off. Resuming with normal activities is ok (i.e. - face washing). When possible, it is best to wait up to 12 hours.
- Never use a clamp-style eyelash curler on your extensions. This can permanently damage not only the extensions, but your natural eyelashes as well. Eyelash combs are great for grooming your lashes every morning.
- Adhesives are cured by moisture, however, by avoiding extreme variation of heat, humidity, and cold weather (i.e. – hot showers, saunas, zero degree weather), your extensions can last longer. Normal activities like swimming, can resume after the appointment (more)
- Be sure to schedule appointment every 2 to 3 weeks for timely touch-ups. This will keep your lashes looking full and natural, indefinitely.
- Do not attempt to remove the extensions yourself. Have them removed by your professional.
- Contact your Certified Stylist with any questions or concerns.
