Accentuating Your Natural Beauty on Your Wedding Day

By Megan Yakovich

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life—which is why it can also feel pretty stressful!

From the venue to colors to your dress (and much more), there is just so much to think about. Perhaps most importantly of all, though, is that you likely want to look (and feel) beautiful.

Leah Gosik, owner of Bella By Leah Cosmetics, has specialized in wedding makeup artistry for 11 years.

“I love enhancing the bride’s natural beauty. And it’s an honor to be involved in such a special day!” Leah says.

To that end, Leah provides a variety of services to help ensure your day is everything you hope (with minimal stress).

Located in the heart of downtown Prescott, Leah’s lovely shop offers a large, comfortable, tranquil space for you and your wedding party to prepare for the big moment. While Leah applies makeup, the members of her hand-picked team of experienced and professional stylists focus on the hair (alternatively, your favorite hairdresser is welcome, too) … and your photographer is invited to capture it all.

Imagine being relaxed and calm as you sip your favorite drink and enjoy light snacks provided by Leah in her otherwise closed shop, as she puts her expertise to work, making you look your absolute best.

Plus, because you’re invited to enjoy a trial session with Leah, you can sit back and let go instead of worrying about your makeup and/or hair. “You’ll know exactly what is going to happen when you come through my door on your wedding day. You’ll have peace of mind,” Leah says.

If your wedding is out of town, Leah can travel with you. Or, if you’d prefer to do your own hair and makeup on the actual day, Leah also offers makeup and skincare application lessons. She’ll show you how to achieve the look you’re going for with her non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic Bella By Leah and Bellapierre products! (Don’t know the look you’re going for? Don’t worry; Leah is happy to make suggestions based on your coloring, wedding colors, and desires.)

“Empowering women to do their own makeup on their wedding day and every day is rewarding,” Leah says.

Finally, Leah has a few tips to keep in mind for that special day.

First, waterproofing is a must. Mascara is easy, but did you know you can also waterproof your eyeliner? Leah’s clear waterproof eyeliner can be applied over any color!

When it comes to foundation, Leah loves to mix Bellapierre’s Beauty Balm with a Bella By Leah Perfect Foundation to achieve a Perfect Photo Finish that lasts all day.

Finally, Leah recommends using a high-definition setting powder for those who like a matte finish.

“This is your day,” Leah says. “It makes my heart happy to know I’m helping women look and feel beautiful!”
