4 Reasons to Hire a Professional Makeup Artist

You’ve created the wedding look of your dreams, don't ignore the details.

You’ve spent hours finding the perfect dress, pinning your favorite wedding day hairstyle and finding a hairstylist to bring it to life, and possibly even planning the smallest details like sewing an adorable blue bow into your undergarments for your something blue. You’ve created the wedding look of your dreams, so why would you ignore the most important part?

Your face is what your husband-to-be will be looking at throughout the entire ceremony, it is the focal point of your pictures, and it’s the part of you that will be glowing more than anything else while you are saying “I do.” Hiring a professional makeup artist will ensure that you are putting your best face forward during one of your life’s most important events.

Here are four reasons why it’s a good idea to hire a professional makeup artist for your wedding day.

  1. Makeup artists know how to highlight your best features, downplay blemishes or discoloration, and really make your eyes pop. Instead of relying on your personal tried and true routine, they can create a look that is fresh, polished, and flattering.

  2. They have been trained on how to apply makeup so that it stands up to the harsh flash of the camera, as well as the lighting of your venue. Even though you may want to “look like yourself” on your wedding day, your normal makeup and application may not look the way you want it to under the various lighting you will be exposed to. Brides can expect to wear as much as 30% more makeup in order to maintain their everyday look in pictures.

  3. They can make it last all day. The last thing you need to be worried about is whether your makeup has worn off throughout the day. With the right makeup and application, outside of a touch up of lipstick, you will be fresh faced from the ceremony into the late night electric slide at your reception.

  4. A helping hand can help cut down your wedding day stress. It’s your day to relax, be pampered, and do nothing but take in the fun and excitement of becoming a Mrs. Letting a makeup artist take care of your beauty routine relieves the stress of doing it yourself. You will have a professionally created and applied look that highlights your natural beauty, and ensures a fresh beautiful face to present to your hubby-to-be.
