Beauty on Your Wedding Day

September 18th, 2012

Hello there! Glad to see you back to visit!  Today I’d like to talk to you a bit about make up on your wedding day.

Your wedding day is probably the most photographed day of  your life. You’ll have those memories captured in time and displayed throughout your home. It goes without saying that you want to look your very best! That day is a culmination of all the dreaming and planning you have done for so long.

Hiring a make up artist is a big decision. Let’s take a look at how to make this choice easier.

  • Start your search at least 6 months ahead of time. A good artist is in high demand. You’ll need time to find the person who will suit you personally and can be there for you on that day.
  • Don’t just rely on photographs you see in a magazine. Those can be touched up and made to look flawless.  An upstanding artist will have references and won’t flinch at you wanting to contact former clients.
  • Ask a lot of questions! Find out if your personality meshes with your potential artist. You want someone who will readily listen to your ideas, but also give you helpful hints or gentle steering in the right direction. You’ll be stressed on the day of your wedding. If you have someone you have friction working on your, your tension will shine through.
  • Price. I know, you are on a budget! Sometimes that’s a little more like a guideline and you have some wiggle room. That’s ok! Just make sure you know what’s included. How much time will your artist be there? Is there an extra charge for supplies? Will the artist be the only one there or will you be paying for a team? If you want to include your bridesmaids be sure to talk about that as well. Surprises the day of the wedding won’t be pleasant for either person. Be respectful of them as a business person.
  • Hair, does your artist do that as well? Or will you need to plan a trip to a salon or make time for hair before makeup?
  • Decide how  you want to look. Do you like drama? Do you prefer the natural look? Make sure you convey this to the makeup artist and feel comfortable with that person fulfilling your ideas for your wedding. Look on Pinterest, in Bridal magazines and even celebrity magazines for ideas.
  • Take someone with you to the initial appointment. That person can keep you on track and not let you get swept up by your surroundings or that initial rush of excitement. It’s ok to take time and find that perfect fit. It took you a while to find your perfect guy and your perfect dress. Give yourself the go ahead to interview more than one person.
