MakeUp on your Wedding Day.

There are so many important details that you wouldn’t want to look over when planning your wedding. MakeUp on your special day is just one of them. Still, not sure if going with a professional Make Up Artist? This Article might help with that unanswered question.

Women who don’t often wear makeup or wear very little on a daily basis, and even on a special occasion. Might not be fully aware of all the fun possibilities there can be with Make Up.. You can enhance and highlight some of your favorable features, temporarily add length, and fullness to your lashes. Create balance, shape the face, and even slim down certain areas of the face like the cheeks.

Photography & MakeUp:

I’m sure many brides to be have looked through countless Bridal Magazines, and can’t help but notice all the flawless skin, great bone structure, and beautiful full lashed eyes on the models. The result of those beautiful pictures are part of the great makeup techniques that played a role on the day of those photo shoots. A professional Make Up Artist understand how photography requires special makeup, and very well knows that photography will be playing a huge roll on your Wedding Day, as well. This is definitely something you’d like to keep in mind when you decideif you want to hire a professional MUA. Also, if the make up artist you do choose is experienced with print (photography) makeup.

Products are definitely another thing you’d like to consider, especially if you don’t really wear make up. Many of the times when women decide they want to do their own makeup they don’t realize that good quality make up can cost a lot of money. A basic makeup kit requires a minimum of the following:
Moisturizer, Primer, Foundation, Concealer, at least 3 eye shadow colors, eyeliner, mascara, at least 2 blushes, a lip liner and a lip gloss. This very basic make up kit can cost anywhere from $150 and up depending on quality, and brands of the cosmetics.

A makeup artist will cost $120 to $200, and sometimes more depending of the experience. Averagely it will be no more than $200 for the initial makeup or 2 to 3 hours of the artist time.

It may sound like a lot but comparing it to the price of the basic makeup kit it averages out to the same amount. The difference is that professional artist will have a much larger kit, usually years of experience and are experienced with all shapes, tones, skin types and will be able to customize a make up just for you. Experimenting with makeup for your wedding day is not recommended. It’s best to hire a professional to avoid surprises.

A Consultation, Trial, or Make Up Preview:

Once you’ve decided that you’d like to hire a make up artist you’d want to set up an initial Consultation that can also take place via phone. The consult should be a brief a introduction of the artist, her services, she can show you her portfolio and resume. She or he will also be asking you some questions about looks you’re interested in, skin types, and if you are currently dealing with any problem areas on skin like acne or dryness. This will help the artist prepare for your trial or Make Up preview. The Trial and Make Up Preview can be 1 to 3 hours depending on how many looks you wish to try. These appointments often entail a fee. Therefore, it would be a great idea to schedule on the day of engagement photos, engagement parties, bachelorette parties, or any other special occasion or dinner.
