On Being Fabulous and Flawless for your Wedding Day
Six months before the big day, begin a good skin care regimen. Start receiving facials once a month and you will unveil a smoother and brighter complexion.
Rejuvenate dull and overexposed skin with (1) Peter Thomas Roth’s new multi-action retexturizer, which exfoliates manually, while simultaneously repairing and moisturizing skin. Peter Thomas Roth Laser-FreeTM Retexturizer ($38 www. peterthomasroth.com)
Eighty percent of aging is caused by sun damage. Over exposure breaks down collagen, resulting
in wrinkles and skin discoloration in addition to DNA damage. Repair sun damage with (2) Elite Therapeutics Elite Premier Crème ($65 www.elitetherapeutics.com) It contains Vitamin E and Sea Whip Extract. Premier Crème is paraben- free, cruelty-free, fragrance-free.
For the mother of the bride: keep your skin looking young with (3) La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift ($500 www.shoplaprairie.com) This serum is amazing; skin appears lifted and taut.
No matter how hot it gets in Houston, rest assured it will be no match for the number one selling eyeshadow primer potion, (5) Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($19 www.UrbanDecay.com) This primer will take you from wedding, reception to honeymoon!
Emotional days call for emotional protection! Unlike other waterproof mascaras, (6) Stila Stay All Day Lash Waterproof Mascara ($22 www.StilaCosmetics.com) leaves lashes soft and protected without smudging, budging or flaking.
A comprehensive product, (7) Josie Maran Argan Balm ($42 www.Sephora.com) can be used to soften skil all over, used on lips or ashy elbows, or simply to smooth away frizz and fly-away hair. Argan Balm is free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and synthetic fragrances.
For your wedding you want your fragrance to be light but sophisticated. One of my favorites is (8) DVF Sunny Fragrance (1.7 oz $85 Sephora).
