10 Tips from a Pro is a series I’ve been wanting to start for awhile now, I hope you like it! 

I met Rachel Baer while I was working at Sephora right after graduating college before really considering myself a professional photographer. We bonded over our mutual obsession with makeup but more specifically skin care. Rachel is fantastic at doing makeup and has wonderful skin care recommendations. Joey and I interviewed Rachel and had her demonstrate some skin care and makeup tips for us so that you can have an insider’s look at how to get ready to have your makeup done for your wedding day (or any day for that matter)

 

1.) Start any new skin care routine a minimum of 3 months before your wedding day. Products usually take 4-6 weeks to work!

2.) Start with a good skin care routine.

 

3.) Drink lots of water! At least 80 ounces a day will keep your skin hydrated. When you drink water your vital organs get the hydration first and your skin gets it last. 

4.) Stay away from water that is too hot. It is bad for skin and helps create texture. Warm water is the way to go. 

5.) Use an eye cream! If you’ve ever wondered why under eye concealer won’t work, it’s because the skin under your eyes needs some more love. The molecules of regular moisturizer are too big to penetrate your thinner eye skin, so using an eye cream will make your concealer glide on and prevent it from creasing. 

6.) Talk with your makeup artist. Tell them what you want – they won’t be offended. Tell them if you have allergies or if you’re worried about skin texture. Chances are they can recommend products that will heal your woes. Healing the skin is easier than covering up any worries you may have.

1 Week Before the Wedding

7.) Don’t drink, smoke or self-tan, all of these will dry out your skin. If you want to self-tan do it at least one week before to give your skin time to replenish moisture and to blend into your skin, leaving you with a natural glow instead of an orange tint. 

8.) Drink a lot of water and get extra sleep. Not only will you look good but you’ll feel good too. 

9.) Stick with your regular skin care routine. As tempting as it can be to try something new,  chances are it will break you out or you’ll have a bad reaction. Feel free to experiment and find out what’s best for your skin but do it well before your wedding!  

10.) The night before your wedding use a hydrating mask (that you frequently use) and remember to have fun it’s your wedding day!

 

Rachel is your go-to girl for any skin care or makeup needs!

Alanna and Joey

I’m not sure if I have the right words to say how absolutely stunning these are. I am sitting here supposed to be sleeping and moved to tears already! 

You so beautifully captured not only the depth of Joey’s and my connection and relationship but the incredible bond we have with our people. We love each other and our people so much and they love us and that comes through so strongly here. Thank you so much for everything!

The Meisbergers were an unforgettable part of our wedding celebration! 

Like many couples, our wedding was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but Joey and Lauren helped us feel at-ease and supported as we navigated difficult deicions leading up to our celebration. They were communicative and organized, and they took so much of the stress out of our wedding-planning process by talking us through all the details that might otherwise go overlooked.

As photographers, Joey and Lauren went above and beyond to make everyone feel both celebrated and glamorous, and they captured the emotion of the day perfectly. We could not recommend them more whole-heartedly!

"Joey and Lauren both have an incredible eye for detail, but beyond their skills as photographers, it is their kindness, humor, and flexibility that truly shined."

Adam and Grace

The Meisbergers were the perfect photographers for our wedding. Their photos truly captured every moment perfectly, from getting ready in the morning, to a traditional wedding ceremony, to a wild party to finish the night! They also took TONS of pictures of our family and friends, and really captured all of the joy of the day! We had a couple of crazy ideas (that may have involved Joey running around all of our guest tables taking pictures) and they were totally cool with everything! Beautiful detailed photographs, perfectly edited, and a great online platform to view and share photos! Would 100% recommend to anyone!

"Responsive, organized, flexible, and truly adapt to whatever you want on your big day!."

Katie and Mitch

"Lauren was helpful, kind, and captured our day perfectly. She made us both feel comfortable throughout the process and we received our photos in a timely manner. We couldn’t be happier with our experience using Lauren and the final results with our photos.."
