Bridal Beauty – Why Should I Hire A Professional Makeup Artist?
Whether you are experienced or not with makeup, you are bound to
have some anxiety as your wedding approaches. New trends come out
all the time with makeup, should you follow them? Attempt your own
makeup? And do you know what colours really suit you?
These are questions all brides ask and to be sure you look your
best, it is recommended that you hire a make-up professional for
the day. Especially when it comes to selecting your foundation and
colour palette for your wedding. This is going to be one of the
most important days of your life, and captured forever in your
photos and video, and you want to be sure that your look captures
the best of your features, beautifully and naturally, through the
right kind of makeup. This isn't the time to be learning first hand
all about makeup, and to be proficient enough to apply it without
undue stress on your wedding day!
Your professional artist will help you find products that are
compatible for your skin, while creating a colour palette that will
enhance your natural colouring, features and undertone. A good
artist will also require a consultation session with you for this
very purpose prior to the wedding, so that you can have trial run
with your wedding makeup. Learn all you can in this selection and
application process, and have the makeup charted for you. This way
you can have a reference for the future to build upon as you pursue
a more personal experience in makeup selection.
Even if you decide you still want to do your own bridal makeup,
it is advisable to take some lessons from a professional, to learn
how to select foundations and colours that are best suited to your
skin type and undertone, and learn basic application techniques. It
will be the best investment you can make in your bridal beauty
regimen. Trial and error can be so time consuming and expensive,
not to mention frustrating if you bounce around from makeup counter
to makeup counter, getting conflicting advice and product choices
from sales people. It is best to go armed with a clear
understanding of your undertone, and range of colours that will be
best suited to enhance your own natural colouring and features. You
will be a lot more successful in your product selection and
application technique if you work with a pro first.
A professional will ensure you don't have that embarrassing
