Wedding Makeup

wedding makeup lookWedding makeup and hair styling has been our specialty since the beginning of our careers.  Nothing compares to that moment when a bride puts on her gown and takes everyone’s breath away.  We have to admit, we love having a hand in it!

Designing Your Makeup Look

There are many factors that go into choosing a makeup look for your wedding day.  First, the time of day will somewhat dictate how intense your makeup should be.  You’ll also want your makeup to tie in with the overall look and feel of the wedding.  THE MOST IMPORTANT factor is making sure the makeup suits your style and comfort level.    You should feel excited about the way you look.  It should feel special and have a little “wow!” factor but not feel like you traveled too far away from your normal self.

 Trial Run Through / Consultation

Most brides opt for a preview of what their wedding day look will be.  These take place at our studio where we’ll begin by looking at inspirational pictures and discussing your wedding details and personal style.  We allot plenty of time for us to experiment and fine tune every little detail.  These consultations are much like a partnership.  We’ll depend on you to guide us towards things you like as we build your look step by step.  We’ll use our expertise to help guide you through the process.  We’ll also have a lot of fun along the way!

What’s Different About Bridal Makeup

Bridal makeup is different than other types of makeup.  It needs to look fresh and lovely in person, photograph beautifully, and hold up for an entire day.  A lot of the makeup we wear in everyday life does not play well with the professional camera.  Bridal artists must also carry makeup that withstands sweat and tears.  The makeup must be applied in a way to combat all of the things we don’t want: fine lines, blemishes, oil, dry patches, streaks and more tears.  The makeup needs to be very detailed so the close up photos look beautiful and contoured enough so that the features stand out from a distance.  These are all common challenges that trained professional makeup artists who specialize in bridal makeup are used to meeting.
