Why Hiring The Right Makeup Artist For Your Wedding Matters

The day of a wedding is typically viewed as one of the most important days in one’s life. When looking back, you want to remember the love, joy, and magic of this special day, not the stress and anxiety that can occur after months of analyzing seating arrangements or choosing flowers for the centerpieces. However, there are several measures you can take to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly, including hiring a makeup artist. Here are some reasons why finding the right makeup artist can help make your wedding the beautiful, perfect day you’ve always dreamed of:

To Reduce Anxiety As a bride, you have already spent months enduring the pressures of wedding planning and carefully organizing every aspect of their wedding day. You do not need to deal with the additional stress of doing your own makeup on your special day. Attempting to make your eyeliner appear symmetrical should not be the thing you are most concerned with. Not to mention, it can be a time saver if the makeup artist is able to apply makeup while the hairstylist creates the perfect updo or face-framing curls. This can aid in keeping your preparation schedule on track. If there are any last-minute details that need to be perfected, you now have the time and flexibility to attend to them, not the unnecessary worry or hassle. It is also a great opportunity to sit, relax, and chat with your bridesmaids.

To Pull Together Wedding Themes and Colors A wedding is ultimately a culmination of many different elements, ranging from choices of music to the wedding party’s attire. Unifying these different wedding components, including makeup, creates consistency and uniformity. Uniformity is visually appealing and will assist in helping the event flow together. The right makeup artist is able to contribute to this cohesion through careful coordination of different shades of lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow to match or complement the colors of your bridesmaids’ dresses, wedding, and chosen wedding theme. Having bridesmaids with different hues of makeup can be distracting, and wedding guests should be focused on you on your very special day.  

To Create Unforgettable Wedding Photos A large quantity of time throughout the wedding day is completely devoted to having pictures taken. Photographs are taken while the wedding party is getting ready, during the ceremony, and throughout the reception, capturing significant moments filled with love and happiness. These wedding photos are an incredible way to create long-lasting memories of one of the most important days in your life. They are something that you will treasure for the rest of your life and share with others. Makeup artists understand the significance of wedding pictures in commemorating one’s very special day and how proper application of makeup can make these photos unforgettable. The right makeup artist understands how certain colors and shades will appear when photographed and can determine what will look best when the camera flashes.


To Make Your Makeup Go the Distance Weddings can vary when it comes to the length of time, but they usually take place for at least a couple of hours between the ceremony and the reception. After a couple of hours, eyeshadow can smear and lipstick can begin to fade. Makeup professionals are aware of all of the factors that can play a role in makeup coming off and can take action to help your makeup last. They have a thorough knowledge of appropriate application techniques and the best brands to use to help you and your makeup make it across the finish line.


To Get Exactly What You Want Your maid of honor may have good intentions at heart when she offers to do your makeup for you, but unless being a professional makeup artist is her regular day-to-day job, she may not possess the skills necessary to give you the look that you are going for. When you hire a professional to perform a service for you who are used to creating many different looks, you have a much greater chance of getting the look that you are going for. If you find something on Pinterest or a picture from one of your favorite magazines, a makeup artist has the skill set needed to recreate your desired look. You also have the flexibility to ask for changes if you so choose. Your best friend may not have the ability or the time to perfect your makeup the way a paid professional does. Today is supposed to be one of the most memorable days of your life, so you deserve to have what you want.

To Try Something New Say you are thumbing through a bridal magazine and see a makeup look that is gorgeous, but it is completely different from what you are used to, having a professional at your wedding gives you the opportunity to try something new and get the look without the struggles of doing it yourself. Going out of your comfort zone can help you stand out even more by doing something others are not accustomed to seeing. The best part is that you can always ask your artist to make changes if you decide it is not for you.

To Help You Plan for The Big Day Often times, if you hire a makeup artist, it is possible to do a trial. A trial allows you to meet with your artist prior to the big event and “rehearse” what it will be like to have your makeup done. This will help you and your makeup artist figure out how much time is needed for your makeup, as well as what you want in terms of your look.

To Make You Feel Your Best Every bride wants to feel her best on her wedding day. The dress, the hair, and the makeup are all key ingredients to making a bride feel confident and beautiful. Makeup artists know application techniques that can highlight your favorite facial features, helping you to feel your best and to put your best foot forward.

So if you’re contemplating hiring a professional to apply your makeup, it’s definitely worth the money to help you enjoy this very special day.
