BEAUTY BUZZ

Start Your New Journey with a Great Foundation By: Jennifer Goslovich Owner; PierVana Hair-Spa-Jewels

Anything worth building needs to start with a great foundation. That includes your skin. Want your eyes to pop, make them appear bigger or smaller? Your cheek bones to dominate, your lips plump? How about chiseling a prominent jaw or

narrowing a wide nose. All that can happen, but first you need a good foundation. I start my make-up clients with Mirabella Mineral Foundation. It comes in two main categories: Liquid and powder are the most popular.

POWDER FOUNDATION | This is a light mineral foundation, It's in powder form for an easy, flawless application anywhere, any time. Comes in compact form with sponge and mirror. LIQUID FOUNDATION | When I need a little more coverage on my Brides, I use Skin Tint Creme. It helps to cover scars, acne, and uneven pigment the best. Plus it comes in 14 shades so I always have the perfect match. I also love Mirabella's Concealer for under eyes, eyelids and contouring. Mirabella's Primer is a great for filling in large pores and fine lines. I use this prior to the foundation if needed. 12 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK

â„–6

www.vermontbridemagazine.com


My favorite foundation hands down is Mirabella's CC Creme! It goes on just like a moisturizer but evens out any skin tone flawlessly. I'm protected from the sun, and I do not feel oily or dry and it stays on all day. I LOVE IT! Bonus tip | Don't under estimate a good brush! Best way to apply liquid foundation is with Mirabellas Foundation Brush. I find I need less product plus it doesn't cake or settle into the pores like it does with finger application.

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.

INSPIRATION

With the recent rise in microbreweries, and their loyal followers, it is not surprising that many couples are making their favorite beer selections a focal point of their reception. It certainly helps that Vermont boasts forty microbreweries of its own, making it number one in the nation for microbews per capita. With so many to choose from, it is easy to find something that will satisfy every discerning taste.

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.

WITH A COLOR PALETTE OF GRAY, NAVY, AND BURNT ORANGE, THE COUPLE HAD FUN INCORPORATING ALL OF THEIR FALL FAVORITES WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THEIR VENUE AND THE SEASONAL FLORA. THEY USED NAMES OF STREETS THAT HAD EACH LIVED ON THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFE FOR THE TABLE NAMES. IT SEEMED LIKE FATE THAT THE STREET THEY LIVED ON TOGETHER WHEN THEY WERE MARRIED WAS "H" STREET.

VERMONT HOLDS A WARM PLACE IN BOTH OF THEIR HEARTS SO WHAT BETTER PLACE TO OFFICIALLY TIE THE KNOT THAN AMONG THE BEAUTIFUL GREEN MOUNTAINS WHERE MOST OF THEIR FAMILY STILL RESIDES..

e d W d i ngs n r a B and why we love them history Nothing says “Vermont Wedding� quite like a rustic, barn setting. Rich with historical meaning and timeless character, barns are an iconic building throughout New England and have a certain charm that no modern-day structures can match.

nature

The pastoral landscape surrounding barns is the perfect, romantic backdrop for weddings. The rustling of leaves, chirping of birds, and babbling of a brook transport you and your guests to the magical far away time of fairy tales.

versatility

A barn can be both rustic and modern, country and elegant. It is an inspiring, blank canvas waiting to be transformed into your perfect wedding vision. Barns go with any color palette and nearly every style theme.
