Aw – your friend offered to do your makeup for the big day! As heart-warming as that is, working with a professional wedding makeup artist has its perks – most notably flawless and picture-perfect wedding photos that highlight those adorable facial features, and enhance your overall appearance in wonderful ways.
Here’s why you should leave your wedding makeup to a professional wedding makeup artist:
Even though many brides welcome the idea of getting makeup done by a friend or family member, this can potentially be a mistake, no matter how fun and exciting the idea may seem.
While it’s totally understandable that your friend has good intentions deep down, this can easily turn into a very stressful situation that both of you might end up regretting. Tensions are already running high on your big day, and if you leave things to chance, just hoping that your makeup will all turn out okay, you might be in for some colossal disappointment.
Friends and family members who have volunteered to do your makeup do not have the confidence, skills or artistic prowess of a professional wedding makeup artist – who are well-versed in giving you a look that seamlessly compliments your personality, facial features, the wedding dress and even the venue.
It’s fair to say that your wedding photos will be some of the most talked about subjects once the festivities have died down. In fact, they will be lifelong treasures which you can cherish with your loved ones, all huddled together over the fireplace while enjoying some hot chocolate.
A wedding makeup artist also ensures that you stay on schedule and that you have a variety of makeup options to choose from. Plus, you’re hardly going to need any touchups or edits to the photos because your makeup artist already did a stellar job of bringing out your best features.
Makeup artists have a keen eye for colours. Form choosing the right foundation and lip colours to the best eye shadows, wedding makeup artists possess the knowledge and expertise to choose the right colours which help bring out your key features.
You’re probably going to be photographed more on your wedding day than any other day in your entire life, so you definitely want to have makeup on that says a statement or two about your gorgeous features. Makeup artists also know how to disguise certain features or facial attributes that you’re shy of showing on camera. Suffice it to say, you’re going to have a completely natural and photogenic appearance on your wedding, one that just might make you the envy of your friends!
Makeup artists live and breathe cosmetics and nearly all of them are highly qualified and well-equipped professionals who are well-stocked with some of the best makeup products around. These products allow artists to exercise a great deal of flexibility and wearability, something your best friend, Eve, or Aunt Agatha cannot do!
