6 reasons why you should hire a professional makeup artist for the most important day of your life!
I know, bridal makeup is a bit pricey but I promise you its worth it. As a professional makeup artist I understand the questions brides may have when it comes to booking an artist for your wedding day. Bridal makeup is worth the investment and I have curated a list of 6 reasons why you should hire a professional makeup artist for you and your bridal party for your very special day!
1. Stress less and relax!
Professional makeup artists are there to take the pressure off of such big day! You can sit back, enjoy your mimosa and leave yourself in great hands and be pampered.
2. Skilled and Trained Professionals
Your professional makeup artist is skilled and trained in makeup artistry! Most artist invest in their education to ensure they offer the best and quality services for their bride! Professional artists practice proper sanitation practices, techniques and are trained in working fast an efficient to meet your day of schedule timeline.
3. We work on location
Your professional makeup artist will come to you on your special day. This all connects back to having a stress free day without the hassle of having to travel on the day of your wedding day. Often times your artist will come to your initial "get ready" location and travel with you to you wedding location (if your getting ready at a separate location). PRO TIP: Book your artist for touch up's through out the day! (Yes, additional fees may apply but I promise it worth it!)
4. Your pictures last... A LIFETIME!
You don't want to look back on your wedding pictures 10 to 20 years from now and see terrible hair and makeup right? Yes I understand that you may be skilled in the perfect smokey eye and nude ombre lip but your bridal artist is skilled in perfecting your day of look with current trends! You also don't want to invest in a photographer to capture the biggest day of your life and not have awesome glam! You and your bridal squad are the center of the attention on your wedding day, highly photographed by your photographer and your guests, so wouldn't you want to have the best glam for those photo ops? The answer is YES.
5. We have the good stuff in our kits
Your professional makeup artist has tested high-end, low-end and professional products specifically for their clients to ensure that they provide the best products to help you achieved your bridal look. Booking a luxury artist (like myself) provides you with an experience with luxury skincare such as masks and personalized skincare regimens + luxury products such as Chanel, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Dior and more!
6. We provide an experience
Often times, you've never experienced getting your makeup done professionally, and if you have it was likely for someone else's wedding, or for prom maybe? Bridal makeup artists provide an experience for you and your bridal party. Personalized makeup looks, skincare, professional products and and overall peaceful experience. You get to connect with your artist to curate you dream look for your wedding day and we the artists take the time to hand-pick your products an prep our kits specific to your day of needs.
All in all, it is best to book a professional artist to make you look absolutely fabulous on your wedding day! Going to MAC Counter, ULTA or Sephora on your wedding day probably isn't the best idea (not to say they aren't professional artists, well some of them). Remember, your pictures last a lifetime and 10-20 years from now your will be glad you chose a professional artist to perfect your life long memory!
