BB Molly - Makeup Tips

As a makeup artist, I initially found it difficult to ask someone else to do my makeup for my wedding day … but then I did a trial run, and now, I see it as an obvious MUST! Us ladies need to be pampered – and we deserve to be spoiled on our wedding day!



1 / Hire a professional.

2 / Get a contract signed.

3 / Schedule your makeup trial on the same day as your engagement photo session. *perk*

4 / Do the false lashes (or get lash extensions) AND use waterproof mascara.

5 / Make sure the makeup artist writes down the colors they used on you during your trial so that your wedding day look is exactly how you want it.

6 / Don’t be afraid to speak up + tell the makeup artist you want to make changes to the look!

7 / Only do a bright, sassy lip color if you’re using lip stain – or else you’ll be constantly reapplying with all the kisses + drinks throughout the day.

8 / Get those brows cleaned up!

9 / Relax, you look stunning. ūüôā


Follow these pro tips and you’re sure to nail your wedding day look! Happy Planning!

A hot toddy (no – not the nickname for your groom’s best man Todd) is a cold-weather cocktail made of liquor, water, honey/syrup, fruit¬†+ spices, all warmed to a yummy perfection.¬†While following this simple formula, you can craft your own perfect toddy by selecting all your favorite things! From your preferred booze (scotch, bourbon, whiskey, rum or brandy will do), to your favorite fruits (opt for apple or pear and add a lemon or orange twist for extra zip) – these delicious drinks are just what the doctor ordered for a chilly winter wedding. You can even set up a Hot Toddy Bar at your reception for guests to help themselves and create their own custom mix. Top them off with a cinnamon stick garnish or some fruit slices + it’s ready to enjoy!
