How to Deal with Allergies if You're a Bride
You're so allergic even looking at makeup gives you a rash - what are you to do for your wedding day? The beautiful bride pictured above called me in a panic - she was getting married but so allergic she did not know if I would be able to do her makeup. I reassured her that she was not alone and I could easily help her. I invited her in to swatch her arm with products that I would use the day of her wedding. On her forearm we put each product that would touch her skin and wrote each down on a piece of paper so if there were a reaction we would know exactly what product caused it. I am happy to report that she had no reaction and I did her makeup for her wedding day and it was picture perfect all day long.
If you have concerns ask your makeup artist to swatch your skin with the products she will apply to your skin that day. Go for a makeup trial and make sure it wears the way you want it to and that you have no reactions on your face. If there is a reaction and you have makeup that you know works well with your skin ask the makeup artist if they would be willing to use your products, a professional bridal makeup artist should have no objections to this and want to accommodate you.
Making Brides comfortable and beautiful is the goal. Have allergies prevented you from getting your makeup done professionally? If so contact me and lets set up a swatch appointment prior to your trial.
