Cheri Botiz, Nordstrom National Beauty and Fragrance Director, offers her advice on how you and your entire bridal party can look your best on the big day.
First and foremost, Cheri recommends partnering with one of our complimentary Wedding Stylists, who can help you on your entire wedding journey by outfitting you and your party for all your wedding-related events. Once you’ve met, your Stylist can get started on Cheri’s second tip—connecting you with a representative from our exclusive beauty partner for weddings, Laura Mercier.
At the core of Laura Mercier’s philosophy is flawless skin—which every bride wants, of course. Your representative will make over you and your party at Nordstrom or the location of your choice. The fee (which varies depending on your party’s size and needs) includes a trial run before the wedding date to ensure everything is perfect.
Your Wedding Stylist can also introduce you to our complimentary in-store Beauty Stylists, who are experts on all things beauty—another option to help you look your best.
Finally, Cheri offers a few wedding-related beauty tips to keep in mind as you plan your big day.
1 – Choose fresh, neutral colors for your makeup (sables, peaches, roses and creams). Trends come and go, and the last thing you want is to look trapped in a fad in the album you’ll be looking at the rest of your life.
2 – Invest in a smile-care regimen to ensure a bright, white smile.
3 – Find the perfect mascara—start with lash primer or false lashes.
4 – Keep your shine down to a ready-to-photograph natural glow with oil-blotting papers or by using oil-absorbing foundation.
5 – For lips, start with a long-wearing liner and color that’s transfer-resistant. Best to start off matte for photos, then top with gloss.
6 – Get a purse-size spray of your signature fragrance. Cheri says no bride should be without a Donna Karan ‘Cashmere Mist’ Dual End Fragrance & Lip Gloss Rollerball!
