Today on the Bridefriends' Guide to Destination Weddings Podcast, we get to have DestiBeauty Chat and talk about destination wedding makeup with Ivory Perkins of Ivory Perkins Beauty!

Ivory is not only my personal Destination Wedding and Makeup Artist, she is also one of Washington, DC’s preferred Beauty & Bridal Specialists!  Earning many certifications from multiple makeup & hair courses across the country and internationally, these days, in addition to making Desti Brides' dreams come true on the biggest day (or weekend) of their life, Ivory's client list includes Cosmopolitan Magazine, Maybelline New York, Cirque du Soleil, BET, Centric TV, USA Today and A&E Networks (and your hostess - BlackDesti) to mention a few. 

Thank you so very much for sharing the wealth on destination wedding beauty Miss Ivory Perkins Beauty!
