Why having a professional experienced makeup artist for your wedding is so important…

More and more brides are falling into the trap of believing that anyone can do their make up for their big day. From a professional photography point of view, this is never a good idea.  

For women, your wedding day is probably one of the most important events in your life so looking your absolute best is a must. As a bride, you need to be able to look back on your photos and know that you felt amazing on the day and look beautiful in the photos. The last thing you want to see are mismatched eyebrows, overly rosy cheeks and a flat complexion.

Bridal make up is renowned for being soft, dewy and radiant. A professional experienced bridal makeup artist knows everything that needs to be done to ensure that you will be the glowing bride that you deserve to be.

They are trained in contouring your face and therefore will know how to accentuate your best features. They will use only top quality products giving you perfect coverage that will last all day. This is essential if you want to continue looking your best all day with lipstick being the only makeup needed for touch ups.

The results of having a professional will be shown in your photos.

The same goes with bridal hair.

A professional hair stylist knows how to cope with every type of hair – fine, thick, frizzy, wavy, curly or straight. Theyll know what its going to take to hold it in place. They have loads of tools to ensure your chosen style lasts all day. A good stylist will also know how to make your hair look balanced, full and flattering ensuring your hair looks good from every angle. They are also experienced at attaching a veil or headpiece without compromising the hairstyle or running the risk of the accessories falling out.
