One of the main concerns I hear from brides-to-be is whether their makeup will last all day. From the moment you say your vows to your first dance, you want to look picture perfect. Without blowing my own trumpet, this is where a professionally trained makeup artist is your best friend.
I understand that if you’re not used to wearing a lot of makeup, the idea of having it done for your wedding day might be daunting and a little scary. You may be worried you’ll be caked in makeup and not look like yourself however, I can honestly say none of the brides I have had the pleasure to make up have felt that way. My philosophy is to enhance your natural beauty, work with you as an individual and use light-weight and professional products that look natural on the skin and allow it to breathe. You should look like an enhanced version of yourself and feel entirely comfortable.
Along with a professional hair stylist, your makeup for your big day is something you should never compromise on. Like anything, it’s all about preparation. A professional makeup artist understands, not only how to apply makeup correctly, but also how to prep your skin so that it lasts. Using a primer is key. Not just any old primer though, one that doesn’t contain an SPF as this can cause the skin to look ghost-like under a camera flash.
