Thinking of doing your own makeup for your wedding? My advice – don’t do it!
And I’m not just saying that because I want your face :)
You spend thousand’s on hiring a professional photographer, so why wouldn’t you hire a professional makeup artist so those photos are worth the money you paid? These photos are going to last a lifetime so you want them to look outstanding. There’s nothing worse than living with regret or the thought of what could have been.
Trained makeup artists use high quality products (sometimes pro only products that aren’t available to the general public), they know what colours will make your eyes “pop”. They know how much to apply to show up in the photos and will ensure your makeup will last long into the night. There are so many types of photography out there now that you need to ensure your makeup will stand out but look natural at the same time (and not end up with that pasty white face look).
When you think about it – do you really want the stress of doing your own makeup and your bridesmaids? What if something goes wrong and you run out of time? And don’t you want to be relaxed and pampered on your big day?
When I got married I was in training to be a makeup artist, but there was no way I would even consider doing my own makeup. I wanted to be pampered, I wanted my bridesmaids to be pampered and I wanted to look damn good in my photos. We had such a great morning bonding, laughing, reminiscing and most importantly – relaxing.
You may think it’s a lot of money for hair and makeup – but honestly, it’s an investment.
So that's my rant for today – just a little something to think about xxx

Not sure whether the makeup artist you’ve picked is right for you?
Ask for a free consultation before (or after) booking. If they turn you down, then you’ve got to wonder why.
That way you can meet them and see if you feel comfortable with them. Your makeup artist is with you the majority of the day while getting ready so you want someone around you who is professional, fun, tactful, helpful and can deal with the stresses of the day.
I offer a free 15-minute consultation at my home studio in Bethlehem (by appointment) so we can meet each other, get to know each other and talk about your big day.
We can go over what kind of makeup look you want for yourself and your bridal party, how much coverage you would like, any specific issues you want to discuss – and then go from there.
There is absolutely no pressure to book – it’s totally up to you.
I’ve personally been told by more than one bride that I have a very calming effect on them – which is a massive compliment to me. When you get in my chair, you’ll feel the stresses of the morning melting away and you’ll start to relax and get exciting about the festivities ahead.
So what are you waiting for – drop me an email to arrange your free consultation now xx
