Katie Russo is back with a VERY popular look that is great for your wedding or even your bachelorette party! Remember, a professional make up artist can make you look phenomenal on your wedding day. Air brushed foundation will last and last and the pro’s know exactly how to highlight your best assets. So consider scheduling a consultation with one before you decide to do your own wedding day make up. If you do decided to do your make up yourself, I encourage you to practice, practice, practice. To make sure the look photographs well, have a friend or family member takes some photos of you outside in natural, but not direct, sunlight. This will help you get an idea of the way it will photograph.
