jlm Bewildered About Bridal Beauty? Three Custom Color Specialists to the Rescue!
Last month, Trae Bodge and Chad Hayduk, Co-Founders of Three Custom Color Specialists, were the makeup maestros for the JLM Couture Spring 2009 Bridal Show (during New York Bridal Fashion Week).

JHRunway Bewildered About Bridal Beauty? Three Custom Color Specialists to the Rescue!They created a special new lipgloss just for the showcase called, Just Love Me. It’s not yet available on the website, but Three Custom Color Specialists can take phone orders for it. It’s a gorgeous soft fleshy pink with opal and champagne shimmer (see the photo, left).

The bridal pages on their website are a great resource for brides-to-be. They include color charts and step-by-step bridal makeup application techniques. One piece of advice that you won’t find on the website, but Trae wanted to share with Spoiled Pretty readers is this:

“Brides can tend to over do it or under do it. I recommend seeking an expert to collaborate to achieve the best look for your special day.”

Carissa, writer and editor of Hooked On Beauty and professional makeup artist says:

Carissa Carissas Bridal Makeup Must Haves: Day 6No matter what I do, I can’t really cover dry, flaking skin. Brides should use a good exfoliant (one they’ve used before and know won’t cause a reaction) the morning of the wedding like Fresh Sugar Face Polish for smooth skin that glows.
