Why Brides Hire Professional Makeup Artists

Brides often have the jitters because they have so much on their mind – the guests, venue, dress, budget, makeup, and if they are marrying the right person! This is typically why brides look for professionals because they help them cross out a worry from their list. You just don’t know but you can be a hero in someone’s life. Here are some reasons why brides hire makeup artists on their big day:

  1. They want a worry-free wedding day

  2. They want a guaranteed long-lasting makeup

  3. They want someone they can trust even before the actual wedding

  4. Brides look for a photo-friendly natural makeup look

  5. Makeup Artists possess professional makeup products

There are tips and secrets that only a professional makeup artist can help us with. To explain further, read them below.

1. Brides don’t want any hassle on their day

Preparing for your wedding is a busy task, and it doesn’t stop on the day itself. Coordinating an event is always a daunting task because your to-do list just gets longer and longer. Oftentimes, problems arise right before the wedding so if these brides have the option to tick off one worry off their list, they will do so.

Putting on bridal makeup can take a few hours because it’s not only you who will need a glamorous look. Your entire family will be there, but of course, you are the center of attention so you will need more time to get that perfect look. No bride wants to think about their foundation shade on the day, or if their makeup will crease, so having a professional help them with that will make their day lighter.

2. They want a longer makeup

Brides will be out and about the whole day so you have to provide a makeup service that is sure to last them the entire night. Brides often opt for airbrush makeup application because this gives them a more flawless result and it lasts longer, especially with a primer. We would suggest that you go for a silicone-based primer since this helps your makeup stay longer; but the only thing is, it can be drying on your skin.

If you are also not sure about your skin type, your makeup artist will be able to determine it and apply the makeup on your with products that are right for you. There are also techniques that are only meant for oily or dry or combination skin types.

3. They want to make sure they will look their best on their wedding day

Any big event calls for rehearsals to make sure everything goes perfectly. It’s the same with a bride’s makeup, that’s why most ladies include a bridal trial when hiring a makeup artist. This helps them envision how they will look on the day, and it gets them more excited because they are confident with themselves.

This is also the part where they determine whether their makeup artist or hairstylist is the right one for them. It’s different when you are looking through their portfolio, also especially because your desired look may look good on others but not on you (and also vice versa). There are also brides who are not sure what look will fit them, and a makeup artist can definitely help you with this. They are skilled in knowing the right techniques for your features.

4. Brides want to look good on camera as they do in person

High definition quality can change how your makeup looks. Texture will be seen and colors are clearer, so HD makeup suits times like this best. The amount of makeup you also put will be captured on camera and what better way to make sure that you have just the right amount on your face than having a professional around?

Your tones are also to be determined, that way you will know which colors will sit perfectly on your skin. Makeup artists have been studying this their whole life if they have worked on various clients that come from different backgrounds. They are skilled when it comes to choosing the right colors that will give you a natural look in person and on camera

5. Professional makeup artists carry professional products in their kit

Daily makeup is far different from makeup that is meant for special occasions. This being said, there are also products that are tailored to such needs. On wedding days, makeup artists carry products that are meant for specific techniques that not all products can do.

With all these, makeup artists definitely make a bride’s life much easier. It eases all the decisions needed to be done for someone’s day. If you are a makeup artist who is looking into bridalmakeup artistry, you can take a 3-hour class specifically catered to airbrush or makeup techniques. But if you also want to learn more techniques along with airbrush application, a 4-Week Program for beginners will help you with all the basics. This particular artistry is great to start with and maintain because along the way, you are helping other women feel and look great.
