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).

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’s Bridal Makeup Must-Haves: Day 7


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

That tattoo you got with your friends when you were 19 isn’t something you necessarily want to showcase in a gown. I use a lot of Dermablend Cover Crème, the gold standard for covering anything from tattoos to birthmarks.
