Being a beautician, make-up artist, former assistant to a self-proclaimed "beauty junkie" cosmetic surgeon has all proven surprisingly useful in my career as a fitness instructor and nutritionist. Most of my clients, at some point, asked for beauty tips which fortunately I was able to provide.

After answering the innumerable questions posed by my brides and models on everything from vents, enlarged pores and ashy skin, to Botox and lip plumpers, to more lasting bases, waterproof concealers and prevention of mascara stains, I have noticed quite a few trends .
Since many of you have similar concerns, I have decided to fill out these questions in a series of articles that describe the basics of what you need to know to look extraordinary on your special day.
