Why and How to Hire a Makeup Artist for Your Wedding Day

The big day is just around the corner!  You’ve found the perfect dress, flowers, photographer, and hairdresser.  Every little detail has been taken care of...or has it?  

You’ve thought about hiring a professional makeup artist but you’re still not sure if it’s worth it.

There are several advantages in hiring a professional makeup artist.  We’ve been trained to understand how lighting and photography will affect your makeup.  That by applying certain techniques and products your makeup will last all day and into the night.  We know which colors will make your eyes “pop” and which ones will conceal any dark circles, uneven skin tones, or blemishes. Plus, by placing your trust in a professional you will be reducing your stress level on this important occasion.  You deserve to sit back, relax into the makeup chair, and leave the rest to us!

So, how do you find a professional makeup artist?  This will take a little leg work but will be well worth it in in the end.  Speak to past brides, friends or family who have gotten their makeup done and treat word of mouth referrals like gold.  Most women are willing to share the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Also, talk to photographers.  These professionals know that a talented makeup artist can make their job that much easier (i.e. less touchups, less time, less money spent). &
