Do I need a professional makeup artist? In the words of Anne Lamott, “Joy is the best makeup, but a little lipstick is a close runner up.”

Choosing to use a professional makeup artist on your wedding day is an investment in you and your wedding day bliss.

Your makeup artist will ensure that your make-up radiates your happiness and loveliness throughout your big day. They will make certain that you look your absolute best! I always remind my clients that whether you choose the unmade-up look or if you prefer a little more glam, it is important to use the correct makeup techniques to complement photographic flashes and lighting.

A professional makeup artist will work with top-quality, long-wearing products. He/ she will use the latest trends to contour and flatter your facial shape, accentuate your best features and make sure that your photos are a true reflection of your beauty as you walk down the aisle.

As any bride will know, how you look on your wedding day is everything, and your makeup plays an important role in ensuring you look your best. It is a good idea to plan a makeup trial before the wedding. To ensure you discuss your style with your artist and to make sure that your skin responds well to the makeup chosen.

A pre-wedding trial also gives you a chance to get advice from your makeup artist about skin care before your wedding. Such as waxing, exfoliation and beauty masks to help create a flawless, moisturised skin ensuring your makeup glows on the day. Most importantly, your makeup artist should make you feel comfortable, confident and ready to enjoy every minute of your special day. After all, it’s not every day that the Princess marries her Prince.
