Jillian & Sean Wedding – Bouquet – Guastavinos – by Joseph Lin
We’ve all been tested this past year and half in ways like never before. For most, the effects on our physical and mental health have been noticeable. The decisions we make regarding body, mind, and spirit become all the more critical during periods of prolonged stress. The path to finding balance in order to achieve and maintain optimal health and beauty feels meandering and plotted with obstacles.
Dayna Hart of Violet Grace can attest to this predicament many women are finding themselves in right now. Dayna founded Violet Grace as “a multidisciplinary beauty and wellness established to integrate time-tested elements of health, healing, and beauty with a practical understanding of the modern cosmetic and wellness industries to enhance the mind, body, and soul.” Clients come to her seeking guidance as they embark on a personal journey to look and feel their best. Since this is a goal of most brides-to-be, we asked Dayna what advice she has for our readers who are in the midst of planning a wedding. Read on to hear what she had to say. Read More
When Rhianna launched her cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty, in 2017, she included forty shades of foundation (there are now fifty).

Most likely, you will be enlisting a beauty team, with the conversation about wedding makeup commencing well before the big day.

To help guide this discussion, we checked in with Megan Glenn, a beauty writer and rep for American Beauty School in New York City. Here, Megan shares essential bridal beauty tips for every skin tone. Read More
