Planning Your Wedding Makeup

Wedding Makeup

Wedding makeup is an important part of the wedding day and requires proper planning. While you might have considered doing it on your own, there are a few reasons why it is best to hire a professional artist for this special occasion. Here are some tips to planning your wedding makeup.

Who Needs Wedding Makeup?

We commonly think of wedding makeup as the bride’s makeover right before she walks down the aisle; however, more than the bride might require wedding makeup. The bride comes with an entire party that is coordinated to match her look. It can be a good idea to have a professional stylist take care of all of the wedding makeup for the wedding party. When there are foundation lines or too much makeup on a bridesmaid, it can be distracting. Keep in mind that the wedding party will appear in several wedding photographs with the bride. Contrary to belief, men wear makeup for cameras too. They might not require eyeshadow and shimmering highlighter, but they could use a light application of liquid foundation or airbrush makeup to even out tones. Powder is often used to reduce the shine. Special coverage can be used for tattoos and certain skin conditions. Even though the bride will benefit from professional wedding makeup for the bridal party, the bride is not obligated to pay for the wedding party to have a makeover. It is important to make a list of everyone that will require wedding makeup to create a timeline for the wedding day.

The Timeline for Wedding Makeup

Weddings require a day of event timeline. Getting ready will probably be one of the first items on the list. If the bride takes too long and does not make her grand entrance on cue, every other event will be off. It is important to keep in mind that wedding makeup is unlike a typical appointment with a stylist. Your wedding makeup will take between half an hour and 45 minutes. If your wedding party requires hair and makeup, that should be factored into the timeline. The bride will take the chair first, and the wedding party will follow. There is more to plan than the timeline.

Types of Wedding Makeup

Wedding makeup is more than just a bottle of foundation on the shelf or anything we could mix together at home. Liquid makeup is professionally mixed for a perfect skin match. There are different types of skin, tones and coverage needs to consider, and each type requires a different foundation coverage that a professional can create. Light and flawless looks can be achieved with airbrush makeup. Tattoos and scars require a specific makeup and technique for coverage. Some brides desire body makeup. Professional wedding makeup can help you achieve the flawless look you want under any light.

Prepare in Advance

Wedding makeup is more than the application on the day of your wedding. Brides and the entire wedding party start preparing their skin with treatments and facials months prior to the event. Avoid chemical skin treatments a few months before the wedding. A week before the wedding, you might consider waxing and tanning. Always use a professional for these services to avoid embarrassing mistakes.
