All About the Bride and her Make Up Artist
Planning a wedding is a monuments task… Finding a venue, Trying on every style of wedding dresses (including the ones you wouldn’t be seen dead in) the flowers which MUST HAVE the right shade of pink… not to mention the shoes, the bridesmaid dresses, photographer… PHEW, DONE?! RIGHT… OH NO! Now it’s time to think about hair and make-up, and it’s also the time you start to think about saving some money! Can do it myself? Can my friend do it?
Every bride wants to look amazing on her wedding day, ALL EYE’S ARE ON YOU! This day will be the most documented day in your entire life. On average 3000 shots are taken by the paid photographer at a wedding, not to mention the wanna-be David Bailey guests, the drunken evening selfies… NOW THAT’S A LOT!
With the above in mind, YOU SHOULD NOT look to scrimp in this area… I would suggest booking a make-up artist to help you- Moi- for instance! Why? (If the above didn’t sell it) I know how the camera works; I’m trained in making sure your make-up stays flawless with a healthy glow without looking shiny and sweaty. Making sure your make-up can cope with the flash of the camera and video lighting; while still looking flawless at every angle.
BOOK A TEST DRIVE….The best way to work this out is booking a trial “with me of course” Three to six months before your big day is the best time. At this stage most things are book so you will know your vision (flower tints, dress, shoes, venue, bridesmaid dresses…) this is when the magic happens, we can discuss how you want to look and we can try different techniques. I do feel that wedding make-up should look timeless.. So maybe it’s not the time to try a smokey eye, if the most you have worn is a clear lip gloss. Even after the trial if you change your mind on your look, no problem book in for another one…….I also know some of the best hairdressers in town (of course I would) so i can make appointments for you with them too.
LEAVE IT TO ME…Before the big day I will coordinate with the hairdresser to plan schedules and share this with whole wedding party (a planner’s role, but I like to help). This way no one is stressed, worrying that that 4 hrs has flown by and no one is ready! The morning of the wedding is All About You, it needs to be full of laughter, fun, a little champers and making good memories.
9 times out of 10 I’m the person that helps with the dress. I can tie up a corset in 3 mins flat, at this point i say “now breathe”, “have some water”, “do you need a cuddle”. I completely understand how you’re feeling; I can read what you need from me.
We become best friends for the day… I feel so privileged to share these special moments with beautiful brides and to be a part of your wedding day.
So you can see “it’s not just the case of applying a bit of lippy”
Hope you enjoyed the read.. feel free to take a look around the rest of my site.
