The Inspiration Behind Victoria Roggio Beauty
Inspired by her Mother’s work in theatrical makeup in Europe, VIctoria Roggio always loved doing makeup and skincare on the side as she made her way through school. From there, she came to the states and continued her freelance career while working at Mac Cosmetics. After putting all of her time and energy into her freelance career and traveling to her job, Victoria decided to pursue an education at Makeup Forever Academy in Paris. This experience gave her more knowledge and insight into her dreams of opening her own studio. Inspired by her education in Paris, European upbringing, and personal experiences with her mother, Victoria opened her studio in Philadelphia.
In addition to her skills, Victoria wanted to start a company that supports women and would grow with them as they age. From engagement day to childbirth, all products are vetted and used by Victoria herself. Victoria Roggio Beauty seeks out products that are women-owned to back small businesses. To support her home country, Victoria buys products from Moldova, to support their economy. From working with small businesses to using recyclable materials, Victoria focuses her business around ethical practices.
Some of the Victoria Roggio Beauty favorites that may be used on you are Furtuna Skin, Weleda, KOS Paris, and Biologique Recherche. Victoria picks these herself, and you can find them within her beauty boxes as well. One of her most suggested products is Lotion P50. She recommends this to all of her clients for glowing skin.
To VRB, skincare is an exchange of energy, so you want to be sure you know what you are putting on your skin and who is working on it. Victoria and the team take care to give you a customized experience with excellent products, all while ensuring your relaxation.
VRB Tips for Your Wedding Day
1. Eat Clean
Skin health starts from the inside out. Victoria recommends eating clean in the months leading up to your wedding. Try to minimize dairy and meat, and eat as plant-based as possible. She also recommends drinking hot water with lemon and olive oil in the mornings to cleanse your system. Anything cleaning out the inside of your body will be reflected on the outside too!
2. Trust your Professionals
Try to schedule an appointment with your trusted esthetician a few months out so they can assess the current state of your skin and give you a game plan leading up to your big day. Your professionals are the trusted experts. Let them do their thing so you don’t have to worry about it. You hired them for a reason! Don’t just look to blogs and Instagram for tips, trust the pros.
3. Try not to Stress Yourself Out
Stress will show. If you are stressing yourself out, your skin might break out or your stress will manifest in other ways on your body. Try to be present and enjoy being in the moment. This day only happens once in your life, so just try to be your best. Not everything will be perfect but love the imperfections and everything will be okay.
