Do have a bridal makeup consultation
Your bridal makeup consultation appointment should be used to determine what you want your bridal makeup look to be on your wedding day and whether or not the artist you’re working with can help you achieve your desired look. A bridal consultation is highly recommended in order for your desired look to be flawlessly recreated on your wedding day. Consultations will give you the opportunity to try out a variety of looks you may be considering, prior to the big day, and if you have any concerns or questions, remember I am here to help you, your makeup look can always be altered so you feel 100% confident in your look. During the consultation, we will discuss the style of your wedding, as well as your personal preferences and style to ensure that you look and feel like the best version of yourself on your special day. I encourage your to bring pictures of makeup inspiration or send them directly to me via email.
Schedule your day appropriately
Always plan enough time with your makeup artist on your wedding day, developing a schedule will ensure details will run smoother. I typically need 30-4omins per application the day of your wedding. And if your hair artist is also styling hair at your location, I highly recommend we work in rotation with each other, I do prefer to have hair completed prior to the makeup, however timing does not always allow for this, so this particular process works best I have found on a wedding day. I also highly suggest the bride goes 2nd last or last for makeup, as this ensures her makeup is flawless and fresh. This does differ for some brides, some brides request to go near the beginning due to the outline of their day. I do stress that it is important that all wedding party members getting makeup done, be on time, I am slotted in for a certain length of time and in order for me to provide you with the best level of service, I also need everyone to be aware of timelines and expectation’s that day, I want to ensure everyone feels their absolute best in their makeup!
Do have the essentials for touching up
I always discuss and provide my bridal clients with a list of bridal beauty essentials they should invest in to maintain their beauty look all day long. A lipstick, pressed powder or blotting papers will help you maintain a flawless finish all day long. Some brides may choose to stock a bit more in there beauty emergency kit that day, however this varies, and ultimately I am here to help you determine what your beauty needs will be and ensure your makeup will look picture perfect all day long!
And remember to have fun, enjoy the process and think of your makeup as the perfect accessory!
