tips & tricks for a professional (and photo worthy) makeup application By: Jennifer Goslovich Owner; PierVana Hair-Spa-Jewels

HOPSKOCH PHOTOGRAPHY

You have spent endless hours getting every detail just perfect. You have a talented photographer, your wedding gown is amazing, and the location is breathtaking. You’ve decided to do your own hair and makeup, because you always get compliments, but now you are getting a little anxious. Will it will show up on camera? What if you put too much on? Will you choose the right colors? As a Professional make-up artist I have a few tricks of my own. I start with super hydrated skin, using a non greasy, lightweight moisturizer that will plump up your skin and keep it really hydrated. I don't recommend one with SPF as it's generally not photo friendly for flash photography. Your makeup will go on better with hydrated skin and your skin will look young and fresh. I use Bioelements Beyond Hydration. Next, apply a matte foundation so your skin will not look shiny and reflective. Shiny skin does not show up well in photos or on film, and can make you 12 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK

â„–7

look like you have really oily skin, reflect too much light, or be really distracting. My Favorite is Mirabella's Skin Tint Creme applied with Mirabella's Foundation brush. For flawless skin you want a full coverage foundation, along with concealer and powder. You want your skin to look even and have enough coverage to conceal any redness, blemishes, discoloration, dark circles. The end result should be matte. If your skin is already blemish free and even, then use something a little sheerer like Mirabella's CC Creme. I strongly suggest avoiding shimmer, glitter, or shiny makeup products. These types of products can reflect light too much. If I do add any luminizing product it is very subtle and highlights the features only a little, such as a bit on the top of the cheekbones.

beauty buzz You’re going to need more color in your face than you think so that your face does not look washed out and for your features to stand out. Apply more blush, contouring, brows, and lip color than you normally would. Defined eyes are a must. You can really connect with your eyes and you want to make sure they stand out. For eyes that pop I use eyeliner on the top and bottom lashes, at the very least define under neath with a medium tone eyeshadow. Use lots of mascara!

False eyelashes are a wonderful way to complete your look. My favorite lashes are by Ardelle. Give yourself enough time. I find it takes about an hour for make-up to "settle in" which is important for longevity. Your wedding day is very special. When you look back at your photos you will want them to be perfect in every way. If in doubt, using a professional Makeup Artist will help ensure that you look your very best.

Hi! I’m Jennifer Goslovich, of PierVana Hair-Spa-Jewels. I have been a stylist for over 30 years, working in New York City as well as Vermont. I love my career and boy do I have beauty tips for you! Send your questions to contact@piervanahair.com  and we might use them for future Beauty Buzz.

MOODY BLUES

www.vermontbridemagazine.com


inspiration

The blues may be a term usually associated with sadness or despair, but you can also use it to evoke a sense of mystique and romanticism. No longer regulated to somber events, soft gray blues and faded periwinkle mingle with soft creams and deep, rich berry hues for a look that is both dramatic and ethereal. Set against a back drop of woods just beginning to emerge for spring, you can feel the crisp, invigorating air and the thaw of the earth. It is a magical time in Vermont where new life emerges in delicate beauty.

Elegant and bold, emerald green is a versatile choice for a wedding palette and compliments a wide range of themes, from The Great Gatsby to the Wizard of Oz. It is a breath of fresh air for a spring wedding, but equally cozy and luxurious for a winter celebration. It pairs well with many colors, but bright and shiny gold elevates it to royal proportions. Full of old fashioned sophistication, this color duo will add instant charm and grace to any event.

Pair them with flowy and sheer white fabrics and silver with an antique patina for a modern and romantic fall color palette.

The starkness of winter has its own beauty and can be a lovely backdrop for a wedding. The bare bones and angles of leafless trees, combined with the muted colors of the landscape, offer a perfect contrast for showing off the beauty of the bride in the warm glow of a couple’s love. A warm and cozy hillside cabin filled with acoustic music and a picnic supper featuring local cheeses and baguettes, cured meats, nuts and olives, fresh oysters, and berries is the ultimate in Vermont rustic, elegant dining.

ASHLEY IS FROM VERMONT, AND SINCE IT WAS ALSO THE PLACE WHERE THEY HAD MET, THE COUPLE DECIDED THEIR WEDDING WAS ANOTHER MEMORY THEY WANTED TO MAKE IN THE GREEN MOUNTAINS. STRATTON MOUNTAIN RESORT HAD EVERYTHING THE COUPLE WAS LOOKING FOR IN A WEDDING VENUE - BREATHTAKING VIEWS, CENTRAL LOCATION TO THEIR GUESTS, PLENTY OF LODGING, AND EVERYTHING COULD TAKE PLACE RIGHT ON THE MOUNTAIN. WITH GOLF, TENNIS, ATV RIDES, AMONG OTHER ACTIVITIES, THERE WAS PLENTY FOR EVERYONE TO DO. THE STAFF AT STRATTON IMPRESSED ASHLEY AND DUNCAN WITH THEIR ATTENTIVENESS AND WILLINGNESS TO MAKE EVERYTHING COME TOGETHER EXACTLY AS THE COUPLE ENVISIONED.

ELIZA AND MIKE MET WHILE ATTENDING SAINT MICHAEL’S COLLEGE IN COLCHESTER, VERMONT. ON A SNOWSHOEING TRIP WITH ELIZA’S PARENTS, WHICH INVOLVED MANY MISHAPS AND HURDLES, MIKE GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE IN THE MIDDLE OF A SNOWY FIELD AND ASKED FOR ELIZA’S HAND IN MARRIAGE. HAPPILY, HE WAVED THE WHITE FLAG TO SIGNAL THEIR FAMILIES, WHO WERE ALL WATCHING AT A DISTANCE, THAT SHE HAD SAID “YES!” VERMONT IS WHERE THEY FELL IN LOVE AND THEY BOTH LEFT A PIECE OF THEIR HEART IN THE GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE WHEN THEY MOVED, SO THEY WANTED TO SHARE THEIR LOVE OF THE AREA WITH ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. ON A TIP FROM A FRIEND, THE COUPLE LOOKED AT CATAMOUNT FAMILY CENTER AND INSTANTLY KNEW IT WAS WHERE THEY WERE GOING TO BE MARRIED.

WILL USED TO WORK FOR A TENT COMPANY AND WAS FAMILIAR WITH THE VENUE, AND KATE HAD SPENT SUMMERS IN UPSTATE NEW YORK STAYING AT A LAKE HOUSE. THEY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE CHARACTER AND HISTORY OF THE HOUSE—NOT TO MENTION THE VIEWS. THE LAKE HOUSE ALREADY HAD A WARM AND HOMEY FEEL, WITH LOTS OF ORIGINAL WOODWORK, SO THE COUPLE USED THAT AS A JUMPING OFF PLACE IN THEIR DECORATING. KATE KNEW SHE WANTED TO USE HER MOTHER’S VINTAGE TABLECLOTH COLLECTION, SO THEIR VINTAGE/CLASSIC THEME WAS BORN. THEY ALSO INCORPORATED MANY FAMILY HEIRLOOMS SUCH AS A TIE PIN FROM EACH OF KATE’S GRANDFATHERS WHICH WERE PINNED TO HER BOUQUET, AND WILL ALSO WORE A PIN FROM HIS GRANDFATHER. THE RING BEARER CARRIED THE RINGS TIED TO KATE’S FATHER’S FAMILY BIBLE. KATE WORE HER MOTHER’S VEIL AND SILK FROM HER GRANDMOTHER’S DRESS WAS WRAPPED AROUND HER BOUQUET.

I WOULD TELL OTHER COUPLES TO KEEP THE BIG PICTURE OF THE DAY IN MIND WHEN PLANNING. IT IS SO EASY TO GET WRAPPED UP IN THE LITTLE DETAILS. HOWEVER, WHEN THE DAY COMES IT IS SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT TO ENJOY YOURSELVES. I WOULD ALSO SAY A GOOD PLANNER IS ALSO KEY.

LEANNE FIRST SAW THE MOUNTAIN TOP INN AND RESORT IN A PHOTO FEATURED IN

VERMONT BRIDE MAGAZINE. SHE KNEW THEN THAT SHE HAD FOUND THE PLACE WHERE THEY WERE TO BE MARRIED. IT WAS A PERFECT BLEND OF QUITE ELEGANCE AND RUSTIC VERMONT CHARM. ONCE THE COUPLE DISCOVERED THAT THEY WOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE THEIR DOGS AT THE WEDDING IT WAS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. THEY RENTED MOUNTAIN AIR, A GUEST HOUSE ON THE PROPERTY, FOR THE ENTIRE WEDDING PARTY SO THAT THEY WERE ALL TOGETHER FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND. IT GAVE EVERYONE CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER AND WAS A GREAT WAY TO EXTEND THE WEDDING FESTIVITIES TO BEYOND JUST THE ONE DAY. LEANNE AND JUSTIN WERE MARRIED ON THE FOURTH OF JULY SO THEY WANTED TO INCORPORATE THE HOLIDAY IN A UNIQUE WAY. THEIR COLOR PALETTE OF NAVY BLUE AND CORAL WAS A MORE SOPHISTICATED RIFF ON A PATRIOTIC COLOR SCHEME, AND THERE WERE SPARKLERS AND RED, WHITE, AND BLUE FLIP FLOPS FOR THEIR GUESTS.

The Perfect Vermont Wedding Favor If you are having your wedding in Vermont then chances are you have a great fondness for the Green Mountain State and are eager to share it’s beauty and splendor with all of your closest friends and family. A common thread with Vermont weddings is the desire to showcase Vermont made products and, especially, food. No matter where your guests are from they have most likely heard of Vermont maple syrup—a sweet delicacy that conjures images of red, maple leaf covered

hills, stone walls, and rustic barns in bucolic farm fields. It is widely coveted for it’s unique flavor and can be quite hard to find, as well as expensive, once you get outside the boundaries of New England. This is what makes maple syrup the perfect Vermont wedding favor. It is something your guests will both love and are guaranteed to use and enjoy. Give them a piece of Vermont to take home and remember your celebration with every delicious drop.

DESPITE A BLIZZARD, AND DELAYS IN COURTNEY’S ARRIVAL, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT—AND OF COURSE SHE SAID “YES!” THE COUPLE USED THEIR CREATIVE JUICES TO DIY MUCH OF THEIR WEDDING, TAKING INSPIRATION FROM VERMONT BRIDE MAGAZINE AND PINTEREST. THEY ENDED UP WITH A BOHEMIAN VIBE WITH SPLASHES OF PURPLE AND GOLD ACCENTS TO LIGHTEN UP THEIR BARN VENUE. COURTNEY’S FATHER CUSTOM BUILT THE CENTERPIECE BOXES AND A GIFT TABLE OUT OF PALLETS AND RECLAIMED WOOD. COURTNEY AND RYAN LOVED THEM SO MUCH THAT THEY DECIDED TO KEEP THEM FOR THEIR HOME.

honeymoon hot spots

Picture yourself strolling down the cobble stone streets enjoying the colorful architecture, beautiful churches, historic buildings, cafes and boutiques within Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Not only will you enjoy the sites but the food and people will make your stay even more enjoyable. Puerto Rico is a charming Caribbean island that is very easy to get too. For most the best part is the ability to go and not need a passport. This beautiful island is full of history, beautiful beaches and amazing people. Whether you are looking for a quaint Bed & Breakfast or a 5-star resort all can be found on this beautiful island. If you are looking to be where all the action and nightlife is, I highly recommend staying in one of the many hotels within San Juan. If you are looking for somewhere where you can

escape from it all and enjoy the island and what it has to offer you’re in luck. Within less than a 30-minute drive you can be at some of the most amazing resorts with incredible beaches. Walk along the beach with your loved one listening to the waves crashing and the cool breezes blowing. While enjoying your time away and together be sure to make your first stop out of the city to the El Yunque Rainforest which is just a short drive from San Juan and a must see! While visiting the rainforest you can easily stroll along the beautiful trails to amazing natural pools where you can take a refreshing dip to cool off. Along your journey through the rainforest be sure to stop at the Yokahu Tower. This tower sits at an elevation of 1,575 feet where the views from the top of the tower are simply spectacular. Part of the wonder

and view from the Yokahu Tower is the Cloud Forest. At the top of the tower you are able to see the West Peak to the left and the following two peaks Los Picachos and El Yunque to the right. As you look out towards the sea you are able to see Vieques one of the beautiful islands off the coast that is another wonder you should be sure to explore. After you enjoy your stroll through the rainforest why not go ATV riding or horseback riding through a coffee plantation. Or maybe you are looking for something a little more daring and exhilarating. If this sounds like you then you will want to head to Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park and ride one of the many zip lines. Are you looking to try out the fastest or the highest in the world! Once you decide whether to tackle the beast or be challenged by the monster I can guarantee this experience is one you will not forget. These are just a few of the examples of the many things to do while visiting Puerto Rico. Some other examples would be a tour of the Bacardi plant where you can take a mixology course to learn the best beverages to make while hosting your own dinner party or your next social gathering. Or maybe you are a surfer or want to learn to surf! You will not be disappointed as there are 130 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK

many spots all over the island where you can surf especially in Rincon and Isabela.
