We know wedding planning can be a stressful and expensive task. Some brides wonder whether or not hiring a makeup artist and hairstylist will be worth it. If you want to look your best on one of the biggest days of your life, there should be no question about it! Here are some reasons why we feel it is important to do so:
- Be Stress Free on your Wedding Day: The morning of your wedding is sure to be a busy one. Leave the task of looking your best (as well as your bridal party) in the hands of your makeup artist/hairstylist so you can sit back, relax and be pampered on your special day. When you hire someone who does this for a living, they can also save you time (as you may be too excited or nervous to properly style yourself).
- High Quality and Large Selection of Products: As artists do this for a living, they will all have well-stocked kits of only the best quality products for their clients! They are also able to choose the appropriate colours/products that will look the best on you, and flatter your natural features.
- Proper Application: Trained artists will know how to properly apply the makeup and style the hair to have it last throughout the day. On your wedding day, you will also be having lots of photographs taken of you. The artist will be sure to apply the makeup in a way that looks best and flawless in professional photography, even after many hours! Although you may be able to apply your every day makeup perfectly, makeup artists specialize in makeup application for film and photography.
- Consistent Look for You and your Bridal Party: As important it is for the bride to have her hair and makeup done professionally, we also recommend everyone in the bridal party do the same (with the same artists). That way, everyone’s look is polished and cohesive through all photographs.
We also recommend scheduling a trial prior to your big day, to ensure your artists are able to perfect your desired look!
