hair & makeup specialists We are so proud to feature all of these talented hair and makeup artists in this issue. Each of these women strive to enhance a bride's natural beauty and show off her most stunning features. brittany benton massey Brittany Massey, of Hair & Makeup by BBM, has traveled all over the country getting brides wedding-day ready and enhancing their natural glow. She will also stick with you after the big day for maternity and newborn shoots or even a special date night. Brittany advises that if a bride has a particular hair & makeup artist in mind, she should talk to the artist about potential dates before deciding to make sure it works out. And while she highly suggests scheduling several Dermaplaning appointments prior to the wedding, Brittany said drinking lots of water as well as minimizing sugar and processed food intake are simple ways to get your skin glowing and you feeling your best. She also loves using Dickenson's Witch Hazel every morning and night as an anti-inflammatory, skin-clearing and smoothing tool. For brides that are hesitant to get a spray tan, Brittany said she actually prefers ditching the spray tan appointment for a gradually-enhancing tanning lotion, which she finds to be more natural-looking. brittany's favorite things L'Óreal Voluminous Milani lipstick shade 60, Milani lip liner shade 04 & Babylips Dr. rescue over the top Kenra Thickening line Babyliss 1.25 inch curling iron & the Hot Tools 1 inch XL gold barrel Kenra Dry Texture Spray, The Stranded Shop dry shampoo Eric & Jamie Photography 3+ Months: Book any cosmetic procedures and order skincare products now to give your skin plenty of time to adjust to new ingredients. 2+ Months: Do a hair & makeup trial run with your professional (and maybe plan a date night for afterwards!). 1 Month: Attend your final appointments for cosmetic procedures such as Botox or Dermaplaning. 2 Weeks: Get a trim as well as any hair coloring, and get your eyebrows done. 3 Days: Have your nails done. 2 Days: Exfoliate then get your spray tan at a trusted location! 1 Day: Wash your hair and try to avoid the straightening iron.
