I know there are women out there who are confident they can handle the task of doing their own makeup on their wedding day. Not that you wouldn’t do a great job, but as a bride, would you not rather relax and let the job get done by a professional artist? After all, it is your wedding day, you are allowed to be pampered!!! In my experience being a makeup artist, I have noticed many women are not aware of the benefits that come along with hiring a makeup artist.
Professional artists are trained to apply long-lasting makeup that stays flawless all day long! Who wouldn’t want that?! They understand and take into consideration the many factors that can affect the look you are going for such as lighting, location and creating makeup that looks best for photography and film. Applying makeup for photography and film is different than everyday makeup. The most important steps a makeup artist does to make sure you are a flawless bride may not normally be top priorities for your own makeup routine at home. Key factors that make the difference are proper skin prep, contouring and highlighting your face to create flawless dimension on camera, application and technique and professional grade products and tools.
In the end, I promise you will not regret the hour and a half of pampering you will receive before your wedding. The way you feel about how you look on your wedding day can affect your entire day. Being self-conscious about your hair and makeup on your wedding day is no fun. Make it the least of your worries and hire a pro!
