Your makeup is one of the most important parts of your ‘wedding look’ and the style that you choose should be taken with utmost care. How you look on your special day will be captured into your wedding photos forever, as such, it’s important to first determine if you’re looking for more a minimalist look which is a fresh face, bare makeup look, which is currently the hottest trend right now or – do you want to go more bold with a dramatic look?
Some brides choose to forgo hiring a makeup artist for their special day, deeming it an unnecessary added expense, but we’re here to tell you otherwise. While your makeup skill may be passable for an everyday look, makeup artists come armed with the skill and techniques to help keep your makeup lasting all day as well as into the night.
Once you’ve determined your ‘wedding makeup look’ start looking for a wedding makeup artist, and be sure to ask for a portfolio of their previous work. Most makeup artists these days will have an online portfolio that they share on their website; take a look at their style and determine if they have the artistic hand that you are looking for.
When you’ve carefully chosen your makeup artist, do a trial run; though they may charge a small fee, it will be totally worth it. This will allow the artist to examine and assess your facial features with different colours and tones and will also give you a glimpse of how you will look on your big day.
