But, if you’re anything like me and you could TECHNICALLY do it yourself but you’re pondering the idea of hiring a makeup artist, here are some things to think about! :
2. You’ll be wearing white! So adding a bit of blush and lip color will make sure you aren’t washed out by your dress! Makeup artists can add color without making it look “over the top”.
3. It lasts all day. Professional makeup is made to LAST! The last thing you want is to have eyeliner smudges on the corners of your lids or under your eyes during the reception. Makeup artists (especially airbrush) use makeup that is meant to stay on for hours! :)
4. Professional makeup emphasizes bone structure. When a bride has GREAT wedding makeup, it accents her greatest features! … And that is GREAT for the bride’s photography too! I mean, what bride doesn’t want to accent her greatest features?!
5. You’re going to be nervous…some of you more than others. Even if you don’t FEEL nervous, being responsible for your own wedding day makeup can be an extra stress for some brides. I have had plenty of girls that felt more comfortable doing their own and I totally understand that! However, if you’re a bride that isn’t a makeup pro and you know you’ll need a little assistance, hiring a professional makeup artist is a smart move!
** Something else to consider is having your hair and makeup done for an ENGAGEMENT SESSION!! But that’s for another blog post:) ** And ps. Speaking of Makeup… I just splurged on this… and I’m praying it was worth it! Any of you love it?
