Every time you look at a photo, the first thing you notice is the persons smile. Good or bad. Is there something in their teeth? Are they looking white or yellow? Is my lipstick still looking fresh? If you are the blushing bride, you are guaranteed to be in almost every single photo taken of your big day, and we want you looking perfect. Wedding photographers are constantly snapping candid moments of this joyous day, with that in mind, we at Certified Fabulous have compiled a few different products that will get you the bright and beautiful smile that will shine through these photos for years to come. Thankfully, wedding invitations are sent out far enough in advance that whether you are part of the wedding party or you are a wedding guest, you have plenty of time to perfect your photogenic smile.


 The first step to take is get rid of any stains on those maybe not so pearly whites of yours. There are some great at home teeth whitening kits out there, but the Smile Illuminator Instant Whitening Kit is a nice kit that is easily added to your daily routine. This is a great option if you either cannot afford to get your teeth professionally whitened, or if you simply do not have the time to get to the dentist. The kit is made up of three steps: Polish, Boost, and Revamp. To polish your teeth, use the electrifying blue tooth paste which gently cleanses your teeth and has a refreshingly light minty flavor. Next, boost your smile with the whitening brisk rinse. Both the tooth paste and the rinse use something call Blueverite Technology, which is supposed to whiten your teeth after just one use. The touch up revamp whitening serum can be used separately throughout the day to help dissolve and prevent stains; can be used as needed anywhere you go, just brush over each tooth that you would like to whiten, let dry, and continue your day. This product is completely safe and even when used frequently, did not cause any tooth sensitivity. The full kit can be bought online or at Walgreens or Bed Bath and Beyond for $17.99.


 poutomaticBefore adding any lip color, I always have to scrub off any dead skin from my lips that may keep my color from applying smoothly. The Pout-O-Matic lip scrubbing system is a very convenient and soothing way to do so. The Bliss Fabulips Pout-O-Matic tool looks like an electric toothbrush and comes with two rubber heads to interchange to make easy clean up. All you do is turn the power on and let the tool scrub away dry and chapped skin off your lips. It is actually very soothing, and leaves your lips looking very healthy and plumped. By scrubbing your lips prior to applying color, your lips are primed and hold the color much longer and have a nice smooth look during the entire day. This kit comes with its own soft scrub to use, which conditions and gently exfoliates away any rough or dead skin. This is the perfect preparation to make your lips perfectly pouty and pillow soft for your first married couple kiss. The pout-o-matic is available at Ulta for $48.

  • olay fresh effects makeup remover wipes 2014

    OLAY Fresh Effects {S’wipe Out!} Refreshing Make-Up Removal Cloths

    Gentle everyday cleansing that’s on-the-go. Fresh and swift, these pre-moistened wipes are covered in cottony-soft cleansing pockets that lift away dirt and makeup—even Waterproof mascara!—in a flash.

    * Makeup removing cloths are a necessity in my opinion and these definitely bring some cleaning power to my face when I need to get clean at the end of the day! Olay has been a brand used by generations of women in my family and I, without a doubt, continue to use the brand because it has always (and still does) perfect the skin and protects it from aging. If you saw my grandmothers skin you would never guess her age...her secret is solely Olay! 

  • Clarisonic - Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing certified fabulous review
    Clarisonic: Mia

    What is it: It's your 60-second trip to the spa, every day. The Clarisonic Mia uses sonic technology that works with the natural elasticity of the skin. Oscillating back and forth at a sonic frequency that produces 300 movements per second, a flexing action is created between the outer and inner brushes that works deeply and gently to loosen dirt and oil, cleansing so effectively that skin-care products absorb better. Clinical results include six times more makeup removed than manual cleansing. It also works to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, and addresses oily areas, dry skin patches, and skin tone.

    Who is it for: Because not all skin is the same, neither are Clarisonic brush heads. The included deep pore cleansing brush head and sensitive brush head provide an easy introduction to sonic cleansing. But Clarisonic also makes a variety of interchangeable brush heads for specific facial skin types and conditions.

    Why is it different: Cleansing the skin more thoroughly removes impurities trapped in pores. Once those obstructions are removed, skin-care products can absorb better, making skin much more receptive to treatments, lotions, and serums.

    How do I use it: Traditional methods of cleansing don't get your skin as clean as you'd think. Using sonic technology, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System works with skin's natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind--leaving skin softer, smoother, and more beautiful.

    * You've seen it around, it's been out for a while now. Why haven't you bought one?! I attribute the improved (now nearly perfect) quality of my skin to this amazing invention! My skin completely cleared up and it smoothed out the texture so much! I tell everyone I know they need to own one, the benefits greatly outweigh the price...I would pay WAY more for it considering it made me feel better about myself and my skin forever!

    Clarifying + Brightening Peptides, Azelaic + Lactic Acid, Canadian Willowherb - These anti-aging skin clarifying toner pads reveal healthy skin with renewing alpha hydroxy acids and a pore-cleansing peptide that will help create a flawless complexion.

    * I LOVE this toner, especially since it comes already to used with pre-moistened pads that you can take out of the jar and apply easily and anywhere. Each pad, from the first to the last, had the perfect amount of toner saturation and I only needed to use one for my whole face and neck. These are my favorite morning products to use. I wake up and swipe my face with a pad before I apply my lotions and I am good!!!  An absolute must have that never dried out skin, but keeps it balanced and properly hydrated without a slimy feeling. LOVE!
