With so much inspiration out there is can be difficult to decide on the one look you want. Here is a little insight into choosing the look for you.
SKINCARE- The going trend these days is well looked after skin, am I right? Technology has become so advanced you can almost do anything. From skin needling, laser, facials & Botox if you are into that! For your wedding day you want to be glowing for every minute of it.
You have a full day of being in front of a camera & all your loved ones!
Brides need to start focusing on their skin routine months before their wedding which will help if they want to go with a more subtle & natural look.
STYLES- There are so many different styles around now to choose from, I would suggest doing your research as to who you want to do your makeup on the day. There are so many talented artists out there that will make you absolutely glow! Once you have found the right artist for you, go & have few trials with them beforehand to see if you like what you receive. A strong recommendation is having plenty of time up your sleeve for any small mishaps or last minute changes. Your makeup artist will have extensive knowledge on what products to use for your skin type & what look will be best suitable for you. Hiring an artist who currently works in the wedding industry, they will know all the current trends floating around from all their previous work which is super handy!
A subtle foundation seems to be super popular in the last year or so, along with a slight contour of the cheeks followed by a natural pink/nude lipstick. 2019-2020 seems to be ditching those bright coloured lips & heavy foundation for a much more natural look.
CHOOSING A STYLE- If you are not sure where to start when it comes to choosing bridal hair, a quick pinterest search will put your mind at ease. Although you could go the other way & explode with seeing the full on over the top hairstyles some brides use! In saying that it's your day so choose what style best suits you. In recent times it seems brides are going for a much more relaxed, natural & fuss free hair style.
EFFORTLESS & NATURAL- Nothing too crazy, a style that is timeless & has movement, curls are super effective yet pretty simple to achieve.
BRAIDS- These are gorgeous! They have been on the scene for a while and probably won't ever fade, plenty of variations to use them in with up do's or half up half down styles.
WHY TO CHOOSE A PROFESSIONAL;
'TIME- Usually a makeup application will take around an hour give or take, using a professional means to apply your makeup means the time management this their gig and you can sit with a drink in your hand chatting to your lovely bridesmaids!
ARTISTIC EYE- Makeup artists perfect skill over time by painting lots of different faces, they will pick up on the things you might miss. Knowing it is your wedding day there will be that extra attention to detail to achieve amazing results. They also work with the idea that the makeup need to last ALL day and in to the night. Just remember they are the professionals working with you to make your day truly amazing! They have your back. I know when my makeup is on point I feel like I can achieve anything. <3
MAKEUP TRIALS- This is where you get to play around with different looks, it gives the makeup artist time to assess your skin type, and whether you might need any additional products in the lead up. Then let the artist get to know the style you are going for. It gives ample opportunity to really nail what you want for your wedding day.
