Wedding makeup tips

Everyone’s their own makeup artist these days. With a little help of Youtube makeup gurus and their many tutorials, it seems possible to pull off DIY wedding makeup.  But should you do your own makeup on one of the most important days of your life?

 

DIY Wedding Makeup

Doing your own makeup for your wedding has its advantages.

For one, you’ll look exactly like yourself. You won’t feel like a different person hiding beneath layers of powders, creams and fake eyelashes.

You’ve done it thousands of times — how can it possibly go wrong? Nobody knows you better than yourself — you know what works and what doesn’t.

But where’s the fun in that?

The time spent in the hotel getting all dolled up with your bridesmaids while sipping champagne at obscene hours in the morning is what makes weddings fun!

You spend time primping your face every other day — why not let a talented professional do it on the most important day of your life?

Also, makeup artists who specialise in weddings are equipped with the skills to make you glow in the wedding photos. They know what works and what doesn’t work in certain lights. This kind of expertise and craftsmanship is perhaps beyond what youtube makeup gurus and their tutorials can teach you.

Makeup artists know how to ensure your base is flawless, your highlight is on fleek and that there is no dreaded makeup flashback in your professional photography.

You can also ensure you get the bridal makeup look you want by having a trial and showing the makeup artist some images to use as inspiration.

Beginning the day with applying your own makeup will only add to the inevitable stress of your wedding day. This is your day to be pampered and fussed over — milk it for all it’s worth!
