Wedding Tips from the Pros: Face Time Cosmetics

Today, I'm kicking off Wedding Tips from the Pros with the help of Linsey Snyder, president & CEO of Face Time Cosmetics.

In addition to being an expert on all things beauty, Linsey is finalizing details for her very own destination wedding this weekend in Palm Beach, Florida. Following are some of Linsey's top beauty tips for warm weather brides and bridesmaids:

- For destination weddings, don't try and create something that isn't natural. For example, if you are getting married on a mountain in the Colorado snow, don't do a totally smoky eye with lots of glam. Instead, try to give the skin a "ski sunkissed" look…put bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and on the nose and give the lips a bit of a pink tint.

- If you are getting married in the Bahamas, do a beachy glow instead of red lips and powder all over the face.

- Don't use too much blush when its warm outside! On my warm-weather brides, I only dab a small amount of blush on the fleshy part of cheeks and then I use bronzer to give the skin a glow.

- Use a primer in warmer weather to prevent the makeup from sliding off your skin.

- Be sure to exfoliate and use lots of moisturizer on tan skin which tends to get dry and flaky.

- Use a wet or dry brush and eyeshadow to line your eyes. Pencil liners are made from wax and tend to streak in the humidity. A shadow or powder based liner will stay put through tears and heat!

- Go with the natural theme of the wedding destination and you can't go wrong!

Great tips. Thanks Linsey!

To get rid of the excess oil on your face during the day, try Starbucks napkins. These napkins are the best oil-blotting paper I have ever used, and walking around the city you can find them on every block! Environmentally friendly too, they are made with 100% recycled paper.

Thanks for the visit in my blog! (I just saw it in my blog after I found you on blog catalog...sorry if I sounded like a total wacko in my previous comment).

Cucumber. Rub a slice of cucumber on your face in the mornings and wash it off in ten minutes -- it tones the skin marvelously. Over time, helps to clear the skin.

Plus, a few slices on your breakfast sandwich or lunch salad will go a long way too!)
