Engaged over the holidays? Now what? Tossing around the idea of hiring a professional makeup artist, but still aren’t sure if it’s worth it? Most women know how to apply their makeup and think “why not do it myself and save some money?” Here are some reasons why finding and booking a makeup artist should be a top priority on any brides to-do list.


Pictures are forever!

While your wedding day is probably going to fly by, your pictures will be something you have that allows you to relive the best moments of your special day. Applying makeup for everyday use versus applying makeup to be photographed in is very different. Having a professional makeup artist that is trained in HD makeup application will make sure your makeup holds all day and photographs beautifully.


No stress

Your wedding day is guaranteed to be busy and might have a few unexpected hiccups. A makeup artist’s one and only priority on your wedding day is making sure you feel and look your absolute best. Hiring a makeup artist will take the stress out of getting ready and allow you to deal with any other challenges that may arise. You deserve to sit back, relax, and get pampered on one of the most important days of your life!


But why not have my friend do it?

It might seem like a better option to have a friend or family member do your makeup to save a few bucks, but there are some major differences between hiring a professional makeup artist and a beauty enthusiast. Professional makeup artists do this for a living and have perfected their craft! They are skilled in color correcting, matching you with the correct foundation, and using the best colors to compliment your features. We also keep a vast array of products in our kits that will allow your makeup to last all day through the hugs, kisses, and tears.


What about my bridal party?

Ok imagine this: You tell your bridal party they are in charge of their own makeup and to do a natural eye and nude lips. One of your girls show up with smoked out eyes and red lips. Another shows up with blue glitter all over her eyelids. If you are seeking a uniform and consistent look with your bridesmaids you may also want to consider hiring your makeup artist to do the wedding party as well.


Makeup artists will always suggest having a trial run before your wedding. During the trial run you can express your vision to the artist and try a few looks so you can find out what you like and what you don’t like. A trial will help ensure things so smoothly on the day of your wedding.
