These Are CrAzY Times... Feeling Anxious? Lonely? Depressed? Hopeless? TALK!! Exercise! Create Something! Get A Pet! My Favorite...JOURNAL!! What A Great Way To Let Your Feelings Have A Voice. Better Yet You Will Have A Physical Record Of The Trials & Tribulations Caused By COVID. What A Blessing To The Future! This WILL Happen Again.

Tips For Brides From Someone Who Has Seen It All--ME!

HI!

This Is Reverend V

OIP

Here Are MY

Top 10 Beauty Tips

For Your Big Day...


#10 HYDRATE! 

Hydrate-1030x579

Drink A LOT Of Water

The Day Before & Morning Of

This makes you feel better

&

Makes your skin plumper

(lessening any wrinkles or sun damage)


#9 EAT SOMETHING!!

SERIOUSLY!! 

You have NO IDEA

How many Brides get dizzy

Pass out under the stress

&

Excitement! 

OIP-15

I'm too old to pick your butt off the ground, LOL! 

I'm gonna hit ya with the hard truth...

If you're worried about "looking fat,"

FORGET IT! 

No one who loves you cares

&

A Snickers Bar ISN'T gonna matter!

OIP-1

 


#8 Shoes...

OIP-2

I get it. 

I'm a shoe-a-holic too, LOL.

NEVER trust a woman

Who says she's not! ROFL!! 

The 4 & 5 inch heels are pretty,

Make your legs look awesome

&

Your butt great

BUT

It's a long day

Wedding-shoes

Make sure you have a back up for after the ceremony. 

You don't want to be miserable for fashion's sake. 

Just be realistic. 

OIP-3

Oh yeah, if you don't

Normally wear heels

&

Are planning on wearing them...

PRACTICE!

PRACTICE!!

PRACTICE!!! 

OIP-11

Again, I'm TOO OLD

To pick your butt up off the floor!

OIP-12


#7   HAIR

Y'all know the saying... 

Try it BEFORE you buy it? 

Same with the hair. 

Try the style 1st BEFORE the BIG Day. 

It gives you a realistic time frame

For the wedding day. 

Often our "ideas"

Are better in theory

dove

Than in reality. 

Allows you time to make changes. 

OIP-10

PLEASE be kind to the hair dresser.

Being a Bride doesn't give you a license to be a B*tch!!

Comments/Tips

It's NOT meant to be mean. 

I'm just passing on what I've seen...

To give you something to consider...

&

NOT to give people

"Something To Talk About..."

th


Make-Up Do's & Don'ts  

#6 Less Is More!

If you don't "normally" wear make-up DON'T start now! 

It won't look natural. 

When we're not use to doing something we tend to overdue. 

OIP-16

A little makeup is expected but

He fell in love with YOU

Not the "paint by numbers" version.

Rock-It With The Natural Look!

A little blush... 

Natural lips...

MAYBE fake eye lashes... 

FYI...I shouldn't feel a breeze when you blink, LOL!

*NOTE:
I've talked to a few 
Of my Brides
After the big day.
There were a few
Who were disappointed 
At their wedding pics.
The heavy false eyelashes 
They chose made their 
Eye lids look 
Heavy black 
In distance pics.
Just something 
To think about...

If mascara-MAKE  IT  WATERPROOF!!

Your NATURAL beauty will make you shine!

OIP-13

OIP-14


#5 Eye Shadow

Every Bride Wants Her Eyes To Shine... 

I Agree

BUT

You Don't Want That To Be ALL That Anyone Sees. 

Smoky Eyes Should Be Saved

For Smoky Nights & Clubbing!

Besides,

By The End Of The Night

It Will All Be Creased Or Smudged.

It's NOT Easy To Do It The RIGHT way

The Secret Is BLENDING!

#4 Kiss-able Lips

On Your Wedding Day

You Will Have

A Life-Changing Kiss--LITERALLY!

OIP-23

Make Your Lips KISS-able!

I HOPE This Goes Without Saying...

MAJOR DON'TS

OIP-19

OIP-25

Enough Said.

OIP-27

Though "pretty" in the right setting

Whether black, gray or blood red...

You want people focused on

YOUR beauty NOT staring at your lips.

*NOTE: 
If you choose bright 
RED lipstick
For your big day...
WHITEN your teeth.
RED lipstick 
Makes EVERYONE'S 
Teeth look 
YELLOW.

#3 Foundations

Okay. 

I admit it. 

THIS is a MAJOR "pet peeve" of mine. 

I meet these BEAUTIFUL women

To Whom I am about to officiate their wedding. 

Most come as they are. 

Beautiful skin. 

Crisp, clean & natural. 

Then I see them at the wedding

&

It's a different person.

OIP-28

HOLY SPACKLE!!

Here's the makeup TRUTH! 

Don't hide your light under a pound of makeup!

How to do it the RIGHT WAY...

1.  Moisturize!  (Especially around your eyes!) Let dry.

2. Apply a LIGHT primer.

3. Should you CHOOSE to use a "foundation" pick one in YOUR color group & a shade lighter than your actual skin shade (it will give you a "brightness)

4. Take a SMALL amount & a drop of water to thin it out.

5. Blend lightly over your face & YOUR NECK LINE.  Let dry.

6. Lightly apply blush in a NATURAL shade to your individual skin tone. 

7. After you've completed ALL your makeup... 

SH-H-H  Here's the secret to set your makeup CHEAPLY 

8. Shake a SMALL AMOUNT of baby powder, yes, BABY POWDER... Into your palm & with a large makeup brush.  Rub the brush into the baby powder & dust lightly over your face, nose & neck.  It is a translucent powder that sets the makeup with a little sparkle. 

Wha-la a NATURAL beauty!!

main-qimg-f7567c53c59fdd011e0a2597004ce50a

Now The DON'TS...

1. If you're in your 30's & above or have sun damaged skin;

More than likely you have wrinkles. 

FOUNDATION WILL ACCENTUATE your wrinkles! 

OIP-29

Powder OVER foundation will REALLY accentuate wrinkles! 

Always remember... 

Moisture is mature skins BEST friend. 

Lighter is better. 

Don't be a spackle face!

2. Don't use a darker foundation to make people THINK you have a tan. 

Your guests KNOW what you look like, who ya foolin'?

3. AVOID spray on tans! 

Your face will break out & you won't look natural! 

Again, who you foolin'?


#2  Pick Make-up That Makes YOU Feel Pretty!

Okay. 

This is your day. 

NOT your BFF's... 

NOT the girl you picked to do your make up. 

Simple is better... 

You've known YOU your WHOLE life... 

What makes you shine?? 

DAZZLE them girl!!

OIP-30


#1 

MY Secret To Make-up Nirvana!

OIP-17

The "Luminess" Air Brush Make-up System

OIP-32

It's a little on the pricey but well worth it! 

1. You won't be paying for  cosmetologist or friend to do your makeup.

2. With a little practice you'll be having complements left & right! 

3. For the "mature" skin it's light enough to hide the wrinkles not contribute to them. 

4.  Okay, if you're a Bride that "sweats," a summer Bride or one that doesn't fall within that ridiculous BMI chart in the MD's office this is the make-up for you! 

When you purchase the system it usually includes a make-up starter pack. 

OIP-31

You match your perfect shade, blush & THE BEST PART---

Luminess has a "setting" spray that stops facial sweat for those all important pics!

No, I Don't Get Money For Endorsing-

It's Just A Great Product.

Con's

1.  Little pricey. 

2. Takes a little practice.

3. It's a B*tch to get off

But you have a PERFECT,

Smudge FREE face

For the big day!
