7 Reasons to Hire a Makeup Artist For Your Wedding Day

Many women want to save money on their wedding day and I don't blame them! So many different costs add up when it comes to a wedding. From the wedding photographer, DJ, hairstylist, wedding venue, and so much more, bride's can spend over $50,000. So I can see why saving money on a makeup artist may come to mind to those who apply makeup well on themselves. 

Even though you do makeup well on yourself, I highly recommend getting a professional makeup artist for your wedding day. Every bride deserves to be treated like a Queen and pampered on her wedding day! 

Here are 7 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Makeup Artist For Your Wedding Day! 

1. BE STRESS FREE ON YOUR BIG DAY

Out of all the reasons to hire a makeup artist for your wedding, this may be the ultimate benefit. Your wedding day is sure to be busy and may include a few unexpected bumps in the road, so don’t let your appearance be one of them.

2. COLOR SELECTION

Makeup artists study the art and proper selection of colors. From eyeshadows and lip colors to proper foundation colors, makeup artists know how to choose the colors best for you and your unique coloring.

Most likely you will be photographed on your wedding day more than any other day in your life, so you want your makeup to be flattering!

3. HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS

Since makeup artists apply cosmetics for a living, most have a kit stocked with high quality and possibly expensive products that are designed for wearability and flexibility that you may not own or be able to afford yourself.

As a makeup artist, myself, I keep my kit ready with makeup designed to look amazing when photographed with high definition cameras as most brides are on their wedding days.

4. PROPER MAKEUP APPLICATION

Experienced makeup artists practice the art of makeup every single day. They were taught proper makeup application techniques and have worked on hundreds of different faces.

If you’re not a makeup artist and you haven’t studied proper makeup application then you may not be getting the best final result.

Hiring a makeup artist for your wedding day will allow you to look flawless while still looking like your normal self!

5. MAKEUP TRICKS TO HELP YOU LOOK YOUR BEST

Professional makeup artists also study trucks to help emphasize a person’s best facial features while disguising other, less flattering ones just by applying makeup.

If you want to really highlight your eyes for your big day, your makeup artist can use special makeup techniques to make that happen without caking on tons of products.

6. BE CAMERA READY

Experienced makeup artists will sculpt your face using contouring techniques to add the illusion of depth in 2 dimensional photographs and in real life.

When your photo is taken, you instantly turn into a 2 dimensional image instead of a 3 dimensional being.

If your makeup is applied improperly, you’ll appear flat in your wedding photos.

Hiring a makeup artist for your wedding day will also prevent you from appearing an unusual color (like orange or gray), shiny, or over or under done.

7. LONG LASTING WEAR

Makeup artists use high quality products that will last as you dance the night away!

When you a hire a makeup artist for your wedding you won’t have to worry about your makeup wearing off during your wedding festivities.

By utilizing specialty products like primers and setting sprays and powders, makeup artists will give you a long lasting makeup look for your special day.
