In this video, I lend my tips and tricks to model and beautiful bride-to-be, Jess, as she prepares for her destination wedding in Guatemala. She and I sat down and discussed the types of products she should use to ensure that her makeup lasts all day and how to apply her own wedding makeup, since she will not have a makeup artist doing her makeup on her wedding day. I hope you enjoy!
