3 Reasons to Hire a Professional Makeup Artist for Your Wedding Day:

1. Expertise: Wedding professionals are working in the industry nearly every weekend, including the Makeup Artist. The Professional will know how to logistically plan and execute in a busy atmosphere with very specific timeframes. They also understand the dimensions, color palettes and techniques necessary to achieve a bridal makeup look that reads well for all aspects of wedding day: in-person, on-camera, in video, up close, far away, during both daylight and evening light, indoor and outdoor.

2. Accountability: A Professional Makeup Artist will provide proper paperwork to protect the bride for her wedding day. The Professional will also perform a Bridal Preview (aka trial run) with the client to ensure the look is well thought out and achieved during this appointment, allowing the bride to step into the wedding day with confidence with no last minute decisions to make.

3. Confidence: Hiring a professional Makeup Artist, allows the Bride and bridal party the opportunity to be pampered and relax. The Professional has everything needed by adhering to the checklist of necessary bridal makeup items created during the Bridal Preview (including touch-up kit) to fulfill the bride’s wishes.
