Every couple wants to look good in their wedding photos. After all it is a once in a lifetime event. We recommend a few things to the couples that approach us when it comes to their wedding make up –
Finding the perfect makeup artist -Your search should start with finding the best makeup artist that can cater to your wedding makeup needs well. Work with personal references or invest in some quality time searching for a great makeup artist in your city. Makeup artists don’t usually mind traveling so expanding your search criteria to include your whole city could work in your favour. Book an appointment with the artist and get a makeup trial done. You wouldn’t want to leave out this step. Getting a trial ensures your makeup artist meets your expectations and understands your skin before your big day. Also, we recommend taking along reference images of makeup styles you like. That way you will know exactly what you want and deliver accordingly. Makeup artists nowadays also work with styling hair for both – the bride and the groom. Getting a 2-in-1 artist is a better option. Check with your makeup artist if they are comfortable styling your hair on your big day too. A lot of Wedding makeup artists offer some great packages that include both – makeup and hair styling.
Do it yourself (but with caution) – With the advent of tutorial videos, a lot of brides are experimenting with their own makeup. If you feel confident enough to do your own makeup, you should! But we advise our brides and grooms to be cautious when they do so. Not all makeup looks good on camera and understanding this requires years of practice. Makeup artists work in the industry for years and only then master this skill. If you choose to do your own makeup, you should also account for the time it is going to take you to get it done and the stress that goes with an added task to an already long list of tasks for a bride and groom. Wedding makeup is different from regular makeup. It has to last all day and look perfect in all photographs. During the course of the day, there may be a need for touch-ups which you may not have time for. Having a makeup artist on hand proves to be useful in case you need a touch-up or to set that hair that has gone astray. With all the running around and the dancing, it’s inevitable.
