wedding day is probably going to be one of the most memorable
days of your life, and rightly so, you want to be unforgettably
beautiful! So how exactly does a bride-to-be go about achieving
that "bridal glow"? Well, there are a couple of things you
need to do: preparing your skin for your wedding day and
selecting a makeup artist that is right for you.
for your skin
many women wait until they are only a few months away from
their wedding day before they even begin to give any thought
to skin care. What you should be doing, is starting early
and taking care of your skin now. To do this, you must first
determine your skin type, which will help you to establish
a proper skin care regimen. This combined with good eating
habits and regular exercise will ensure that you will be
radiant on your big day.
a Makeup Artist?
many brides-to-be, makeup is often an area of "the unknown".
There are those that wear makeup daily, some that wear makeup
occasionally and then the group of women that just don't
know what to do with makeup! Some of the questions that
race through the mind of a bride-to-be are: What colours
should I wear? How much makeup do I really need? How do
I even put this on and where does it go? Sound familiar?
This is why it is essential to enlist the services of not
just any makeup artist, but a good one who will help you
to achieve that unforgettable look you're aiming for.
can you tell the difference between a good makeup artist
and a not so good one? Ask lots of questions! A good makeup
artist should be trained in bridal makeup, which includes
makeup for photography (both colour and black and white)
and videography. Don't be afraid to ask your makeup artist
for references or where they trained and what types of projects
they've worked on. Ask about cleanliness. You want an artist
who not only has a clean and neat appearance, but one who
cleanses their hands, brushes and tools between clients.
Furthermore, you want a fresh sponge and a clean mascara
wand just for you. As important as hygiene might be, so
is the skill of listening. A good makeup artist will sit
down with you to discuss your wants and needs, like and
dislikes of makeup. When you finally get to the trial part
of your appointment, all that "listening" should be put
to good use and you'll know if your makeup artist was actually
listening to you. If they were, you will find that they
will work with you and not on you taking into consideration
all that was discussed and help you to achieve the look
you want. Finally, your makeup artist should have answered
your questions about what colours are right for you, how
much makeup you really need and how you would go about applying
your own makeup.
there's always one very good reason in hiring a makeup artist
and that's just simply because it always feels so nice to
be queen for a day!
