I had the pleasure of meeting Aga Kaskiewicz and Fran Cipolla, who work at Chicago salon Mario Tracoci, on Monday when they helped me get ready for our event with BHLDN. Well, it turns out that Aga, a makeup artist, and Fran, a hair stylist, are full of great wedding beauty tips that I just had to share.
For starters, Aga recommends that you schedule your makeup trial for the same day that you have a fitting, so you can see the whole look together. In terms of trends, she says everything is about looking "fresh." Inspired by the red carpet, more brides are asking to wear their hair down when they walk the aisle. And—no shocker here—she gets tons of requests for "Kim Kardashian eyes," but most brides don't realize how much makeup that look really requires. Aga strongly suggests airbrushed makeup, since it leaves you flawless for a longer period of time. Fran's great tip? Listen to what experts say works for you. You want to look like a better version of yourself.
