Arriving at the perfect wedding face



Wedding gown:  $800.  Venue: $8,000.  Hair: $100.  Flowers: $3500.  The perfect face?  Priceless!   The flowers will wither away, the reception will be just a blur, the shoes will never be worn again, but your face will live on forever in your wedding photos and is NOT the place to skimp.  Finding a good makeup artist can be tricky.  Finding one to come to you can be even worse, especially if they are miles away.  Many brides have tried cutting corners and have been very disappointed, even tearful just hours or minutes before they are due to leave for the ceremony.  I always recommend a pre-consult so you will have the peace of mind knowing you will love your lipstick color and your artist knows exactly how dramatic or smoky you want your eyes to look. 

Getting to the look you're looking for should be no challenge if you have an experienced, well trained artist.  You definitely want real photos of brides that have used and recommended the vendor.  You want to know what the backup plan is if an emergency arrives.  You want to feel that she/he is really listening intently to you and won't just give you their version of how you should look.  If you are fortunate enough to find a makeup artist who is trained in undertone and/or color analysis, you will have the confidence of knowing they are not just going to put colors on you that looked good on your maid of honor, or just happen to be one of the few colors they keep on hand,  To look spectacular in front of your guests, and in front of the camera, you NEED to be in your correct palette of cosmetic colors. 

Be it cool, warm or neutral, they need to be chosen correctly.  Don't fall into the temptation of accepting the offer from your bridesmaid to do your makeup that day because although she may be gorgeous in peaches and browns, they may pull all the color from your cool undertone.  Be careful of people who enjoy playing with makeup and advertise themselves as a makeup artist.  Many hair stylists will even tell you up front that hair is their talent and they leave the makeup for someone else with that talent.  I have seen many people offer their "makeup service" who are really not experienced, trained, or understand the importance of sanitation when working with cosmetics on multiple people. 

Your photos should be a happy reminder of your wedding day and not a bad memory of cutting corners in the wrong place. 

I wish you many happy memories from this day forward....
