Top 5 Reasons To Hire A Professional Makeup Artist For Bridal Makeup

Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Certified Professional Makeup Artist for your Bridal Makeup

By: Mandy Davis MUA

If you are a Nashville bride, or living anywhere for that matter, your wedding day is a day you have likely been planning since you were five years old, dressing up like a princess and imagining what your price will look like when he sees you. Fast forward seventy years, and it continues to be a day that will be cherished and remembered not only from fond memories, but also through lasting pictures. It is not something to take lightly when planning, and hiring a makeup artist is an essential aspect of that planning. Here are five reasons it is imperative to make sure a professional makeup artist is a member of the team that will help make the best day of your life happen smoothly.
  1. Be Stress Free.
If there is ever a day where you should be treated like a princess, it is your wedding day. You should not have to worry about when you will do your makeup, how you should do your makeup, packing your products to take with you, or making sure your bridal party has makeup that will mesh well with the theme of your wedding. No bride wants to have to worry about fixing eyeliner gone haywire or dealing with a bridesmaid who is adamant about wearing a bright red lipstick with her baby blue dress. When you hire a makeup artist to do your wedding makeup, you don’t have to worry about any of these things. All of it will be taken care of by the artist, and every little detail will be discussed during your preview appointment. So all you have to do is show up, get pampered, and look like the absolute best version of yourself!
  1. Having Bridal Makeup that Lasts.

A professional makeup artist who specializes in bridal makeup will have worked on hundreds, if not thousands of faces in the span of their career. They know what products will last. When you are worrying about doing your own makeup for your wedding day, more often than not, you are going to do a version of the makeup you do on a daily basis…because that is the product you have available. However, the foundation or BB Cream that serves you well going to work may not last more than 3 hours in the sun getting pictures or under the lights of your venue. A professional makeup artist that does bridal makeup week in and week out has all the necessary products at their disposal to make sure your makeup lasts until you want to wash it off, whether that be 18 hours later or even the next morning. There is no better way to ensure you makeup will not budge than hiring a bridal makeup artist.
  1. Be Ready for the Camera
Makeup is fun. Makeup can make us feel great. Makeup can also make us appear one dimensional in photographs if not done properly, as well as making us look washed out if not applied in the right amount. Your wedding pictures will live with your forever and be the lasting memory of the most important day of you life. A bridal makeup artist knows this, as well as knowing that some elements of your makeup will be 30% lighter in photographs than in real life. Someone who is well versed in bridal makeup will know the exact amount of product to apply to your face to ensure you look your absolute best in photos, while still not looking like a clown in real life.
  1. Color Selection

The color you apply to your face is just as important as the color you choose for your flowers and bridesmaid dresses. There is no better person to ensure you don’t look orange and that your face matches the rest of your body than a bridal makeup artist. They will also make sure that the products used on your eyes will be the best to make your eyes pop, and that your blush matches your lipstick, your bronzer doesn’t make you look orange or muddy and a multitude of other things that a professional artist has trained for.
  1. You Get What You Pay For

This may be the most important reason to do your research before hiring a bridal makeup artist for your big day. If you choose someone that is offering extremely cheap prices, ask yourself what product they may be using, how long have they been in the field, and have they actually been trained in sanitation techniques? These are all questions that are very important to your selection. A bridal makeup artist is a luxury service, and sometimes comes with a luxury price tag. There are many aspects that go into making you the best version of you for your wedding day, and sometimes booking the cheapest is not the best choice. Rely on reviews, experience and portfolios when choosing your artist.
