So you have booked your Venue. You have chosen a fabulous Wedding Gown. The perfect car.
You now have to choose your hair and makeup artist.
How do you choose the right Makeup Artist and Hair Designer for you.
I believe that word of mouth can be the best testimonial for an artist. If they have a fantastic reputation and are recommended at venues too there is a pretty safe bet that they are great Artists.
Most importantly though before even booking your trial consultation, you need to ensure your skin is looking at it's best.
As a Bridal Makeup Artist I often see bride to be's coming to their trial consultation without any skincare regime at all.
Why is it important? Well the analogy I like to use is - If you were building your home from scratch and the foundation was weak there is a chance that the house could subside and crumble.
The same can happen to your makeup. Your makeup can only look as good as the skin underneath it. Yes, there are products that can cover and conceal and give you a flawless base for photo's, but on your wedding day you are meeting with family and friends and entertaining and wanting to look your best. You are wanting the makeup to withstand all of that and not slide off and risk seeing what your skin really looks like underneath.
The most common thing I come across at wedding trial consultations are either oily skin which is prone to breakouts but then the person is using harsh products on top of the skin which is then causing dermatitis as a result.
If your skincare regime is under control and the skin looks beautiful in it's own right, there is no need to cover and conceal with heavy makeup. Using the correct primers, foundations for your skin type and tone and brushes will ensure a flawless finish and that can only be a good thing for your wedding day.
For more information on the skincare that I recommend please do get in touch on my contact form prior to your trial consultation. I offer my brides facials in the lead up to the wedding. You are also able to purchase these products from me. All the products are cruelty free and vegan for the best nourishment to the skin.
