Tis the season to look fabulous, but between the frigid weather, late nights and stress, the holidays can sometimes wreak havoc on our skin! We enlisted the help of our trusted North Texas wedding beauty pros to give us the scoop on getting swoon-worthy skin just in time for your festivities. Read on for their expert tips and tricks:

WZ Beauty Studio
You want to drink plenty of water and get as much sleep as you can. I recommend giving yourself an at-home facial the night before a special event. First, cleanse your skin, then exfoliate with a scrub in a circular motion. Rinse and follow up with a toner. Next, apply a generous coat of a hydrating mask or a collagen sheet mask. These mask options are suitable for all skin types and will help soothe, deeply hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Apply a few drops of Vitamin C serum to help revitalize, regenerate and brighten skin. Finish with a moisturizer suited to your skin type. – WZ Beauty Studio

Hydration is key! Make an effort to exfoliate 1-2 times a week followed up by a great moisturizer and undereye cream. The more hydrated your skin is, the more flawlessly your makeup will apply and last throughout the day. I love Mac’s fix + hydrating mist before and after my makeup application on days where my skin needs a little extra love. – Beauty By Yari

Lip Service Makeup
With frigid temps, indoor heat (so drying!) and too many holiday parties, your skin could use a little extra attention right now. Step 1 – drink plenty of water and reduce your caffeine intake to minimize dehydration. Step 2 – ensure that after your nighttime cleansing, you slather on a hydrating night cream (I like Garnier Miracle Sleep), use plenty, massage it in well and let it work while you log your zzz’s. Step 3 – use a collagen boosting sheet mask twice a week (my favorite is Dr. Jart’s “All That Contours”) for hydrated and glowing skin. Sheet masks are so easy to use! Just pop one on and then relax for 20 minutes…no mess and no rinsing necessary. Follow these easy steps and your skin will glow all season long. – Jennifer Trotter of Lip Service Makeup, Pro Makeup Artist and beauty expert

Grand Slam Glam
Be sure to keep you skin radiant and glowing with your favorite moisturizer. We love Limelight by Alcone ‘Calm Balm – Aloe & Kendi Oil because it is a light moisturizer made of aloe, cucumber and restorative plant extracts. It hydrates your skin cells and is perfect for easily irritated skin. – Grand Slam Glam

Goodness, Stephanie and Frankie’s riverbed engagement shoot looks as if it’s out of a dream! Stephanie Brazzle Photography beautifully shot each stunning moment, capturing the chemistry the jumps from the film. We just had to share this lovely engagement inspiration!

Stephanie and Frankie are your classic high school sweethearts. They were introduced by a mutual friend is now set to be Stephanie’s maid of honor. In July 2015, the couple visited Stephanie’s hometown in Puerto Rico. Of course, she thought they were only there to introduce Frankie to her family and to explore the island for vacation, but he had other plans in mind. After getting her parents’ approval, Frankie, with the help of Stephanie’s mom, concocted the idea for Frankie to pop the question in one of the most romantic settings ever. On July 5th, they visited El Morro, a famous and historical fortress in San Juan. He lead Stephanie to one of the watch posts that overlooked the ocean. She was walking in front of him taking photos when he asked her to turn around. When she did, Frankie was on one knee with the ring!

Stephanie and Frankie will be married this coming May at the Filter Building. The wedding, planned by Query Events, is a modern romance infused with organic elements in berry hues and metallics. It will be an 11am ceremony with a coffee and kolache hour, instead of the classic cocktail hour, and a lunch reception. The reception space will have long family-style tables, floral table runners, candles and whimsical decor. The quirkiest detail of all may be the couple’s wedding hashtag – #maythe21stbewithyou – a nod ot the couple’s Star Wars obsession. We are so excited for this darling duo! Cheers, and thanks to Stephanie Brazzle for sharing this incredible shoot!
