What a Wedding Makeup Artist Wants You To Know Before Your Wedding Day
Makeup Planning Tips for a Bride-To-Be
On your wedding day, a good makeup artist is not just there to do your makeup, but doubles as a calming presence, keeps track of the schedule and ensures you, your mum and your bridesmaids all look and feel their best. Here are a few recommendations for the bride-to-be.
Once you have set the date and have an idea of the location, start searching for your makeup and hair artist. If you are getting married during the peak wedding season, the best makeup artists book up quickly.
Research Makeup Artists in Sydney
Research makeup artists in Sydney and try to find a professional who does weddings on a regular basis. In addition to their ability to travel to the bridal party on the wedding day, they know how to deliver a beautiful bridal look without making you look like someone else. With wealth of bridal experience under their belt, these makeup artists have a better grasp of the schedule and tactics necessary to ensure your bridal makeup and hair look is on point.
Prepare for Your Wedding Makeup and Hair Trial
Start a mood board with makeup and hair inspiration pictures to show your makeup artist on the day of your wedding trial. This will help the makeup artist to get an idea of your end goal and what you are comfortable with. For your makeup trial, consider having hair done as you plan to wear it at the wedding. You want to make sure the hair and makeup looks complement each other. If you are wearing a veil, bring it to your bridal makeup trial. Seeing the makeup and hair with the veil, will help to feel in the moment and ties the whole look together.
Pack a Touch-Up Kit
You don’t need a lot – but every bride needs a lipstick to touch up with, be it a lip balm, lipstick or gloss. For oily skin pack a translucent powder or blot sheets.
Trust Your Makeup Artist
Remember, what looks good on someone else might not look good on you. When a makeup artist is shown a photo of makeup on a model or a celebrity, they can’t turn you into that model. What we can do is to enhance your features and make you look the best version of yourself.
