Pretty, Please!

It’s a job requirement for these Houston beauty pros to try every product under the sun and unearth the ones that will make a bride look and feel beyond gorgeous. Here, their big-day picks!

Lisa Nalley

Self-tanning expert and owner of Organic-Tan (organic-tan.com)

“my take on selftanning is you have to have a great exfoliator, tanning product and extender,” she says. What she can’t keep in stock:

“It goes on very easily with a mitt or sponge and it’s not messy like sprays,” she says. “It contains instant bronzers and develops in four hours, plus it’s great for the face, too.” All that, and it smells fresh and faint—like almond.

Thalio Beckham

Makeup artist and owner of Thalio Beckham Makeup Artistry (thaliobeckham.com)

immersed in cosmetics every day of his life, this beloved makeup guru has tried it all—from drugstore products to boutique beauty goodies. His favorite lip look for brides:

“I love the look of a little gloss over lipstick,” he says. “A pinky-mauve is a musthave that your maid of honor or groom can carry for you so you can apply as needed on your wedding day.” Beckham’s tip: Dab a bit in the center of lips and blend outward for a flawless finish.

the savvy pharmacist developed her clinically proven, 18-piece skin care line with medicinal percentages of botanicals and other ingredients, so she’s a stickler for efficacy. One of her staples:

brides are one of the salon owner’s specialties, so he knows a thing or two about wedding prep. Gillen’s go-to is a houston humidity-proof spray:
