Whether you decide to do your own makeup for your big day or bring in the professionals, It’s good to do your homework so you know what your up against. Personally I would always recommend having a professional, you can just sit back & relax, sip champagne while your artist gets to work.
On your wedding day I always say that you should be a polished version of yourself, rather than attempting a strong on-trend look that may not suit you, or that gets outdated quickly,
Long-lasting, heat-resistant & smudge proof formulations are essential for bridal makeup and this is where your professional makeup artist comes into play. Makeup that is well blended and applied in thin layers stays put longer and looks flawless.
Makeup Artists will select the best products for your skin to create your timeless look. Prepping the skin carefully for your individual skin type is also an essential part of the process, as a qualified skin specialist I always tailor make the skin care to your skincare needs on the day.
To try or not to try?
I Always recommend a trial, that way you can try out a few different looks, especially if your not used to wearing makeup or wanting to try something new. Its always a good idea to have some makeup references of makeup you like, to you and your artist are on the same page; what you may think is a ‘natural’ look maybe very different in your artist eyes.
I always recommend choosing one feature to play up, either your eyes or lips, most brides will be dressed all in white so too much makeup can be overwhelming, but not enough can makeup you washed out. It’s always a good idea to wear white for your trial, and have some jewellery handy so you can more of a visual of the final look.
