Bridal Bouquet: Perfect Match
You know that drawer where all those just-not-right lipstick shades and clumpy mascaras go
You know that drawer where all those just-not-right lipstick shades and clumpy mascaras go to die? Don’t pick from that for your wedding-day makeup.
Instead, we suggest having a makeup artist whip up on-the-spot custom lipsticks, eye and cheek colors, and foundation especially for you. And with Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics, you can do just that. “It’s a makeup artist’s dream to have colors match this well,” says Julie Weiss-Schwartz, owner of the Powder Room in Philadelphia—the only place in the Philadelphia area to carry Giella. There, Weiss-Schwartz and her makeup artists will take your skin and hair coloring—as well as any pictures of your flowers, dress or favorite discontinued shades—and create a wedding-day look that’s distinctly yours.
“You spend so much money on your dress and photography,” says Giella Poblocki, creator of the brand. “You want to love the way you look in your pictures.” Custom-blending is especially important when it comes to brides and their foundation, she says, and made-for-you shades ensure no visible blending lines in any light. Most of Giella’s makeup also contains quartz, which glows beautifully on skin (especially nice for strapless gowns) and only takes minutes to mix—you can take everything home with you that day.
While you’re there, be sure to ask about the Powder Room’s Bridal Trial consultation and pick up the bridal kit, which contains touch-up purse sizes for the Big Day, so you can laugh, cry, eat and drink and still look picture-perfect.
