Create your vision

It’s important for anyone getting married to have an image of what their wedding day should look like, and that includes your beauty look.

To achieve this look of the day, it’s good to work with a team you know well and do a makeup test to see how the idea you have can come to life beforehand. The model has enlisted a team that she knows can encapsulate that vision for her wedding day. “I work with makeup artist Lisa Aharon and hairstylist Adam Maclay. I often work with both,” Bock shares. “They know me very well and it was easy to sit down with them and figure out the best look for my big day.”

Preparing for skin care

Finding the best skincare routine for you can take some time. That’s why it’s good to start preparing for your wedding day in advance. “I worked with my facialist Cynthia Rivas to find the best routine for the last six months or so,” says Bock. “I get monthly facials with her and a signature lifting treatment with radio frequency to firm, lift and sculpt my skin! Lymphatic drainage is also part of my routine, it’s good for deflating and keeping the skin glowing. She also started doing red light therapy on me to reduce redness and promote healing.”

In addition to treatments, the model has developed a multi-step daily routine to maintain her glowing skin appearance all the time. “First I clean my face with Dr. Barbara Sturm Foaming Cleanser. It’s my favorite and fragrance free. Dr. Barbara Strum’s products are the best,” Bock shares. “Then, for a subtle glow, I use The Winemaker’s Daughter essence and serum. I’ve been using it for a long time and feel like it really cleans and opens pores!”

“I then use the Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Acid Serum for extra moisture followed by a great moisturizer like Vanish Airbrush Premium by Hourglass. It feels so soft to the touch and smooths out visible bumps,” she notes. “For an eye cream, my dermatologist and facialist both recommended Better skin science eye contour cream. I think a good eye cream is really important, especially since the skin around the eyes is more sensitive and quicker to show aging. Finally, I always make sure to apply sunscreen to protect myself from the sun. Supergoop invisible sunscreen is so clear and smooth and lathers really well. Makes your makeup look great too!”

Some holy grail products recommended by Bock? “I like Biological Research. Cynthia uses it on me and it has such high quality ingredients,” the model shares. “I also use the night cream prescribed by my dermatologist. I am going to Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali. He created an incredibly effective personalized cream for me. It works like magic.”

Advice before marriage

Brides get tons of advice from friends and family before the big day. A gem that stayed with Bock? “Don’t try anything new or unusual a few months before, especially when it comes to your beauty routine,” she shares. “Now is not the time to try a new hair color and try a new self-tanner. Stick to what you know and trust your current routine.”

As for a tip straight from Kate Bock? “Stay hydrated, try to relax, and try not to stress too much! Stress can have a negative effect on your body and skin and can prevent rashes and redness,” she says. “Follow a routine that you are comfortable with and that makes you happy!”
