A picture is worth a thousand words
When you go to your bridal trial or to get your makeup done for any reason, bring pictures!
It is one thing to say you like a natural makeup look and another to show someone what that means to you. Natural makeup to one woman is another woman's way too much. When you give your makeup artist a picture of exactly what you like - and even pictures of what you don't like, you are helping to make sure you are happy with the results.
We love working with bridal parties but many times they do not have any idea of what they want. Luckily we are great at what we do and can usually guide them into a look they love, If you are not sure then my best advice is be open. We work on thousands of features a year and have a good understanding of what works, and what doesn't. Also there is such a thing as classic makeup - makeup that stands the test of time and looks at good today as it did 50 years ago. For your wedding day we recommend you choose a classic look - your pictures will stand the test of time and you won't ever look back and say what was I thinking.
80's Wedding Makeup
Trendy makeup is fun and has a definite place in your makeup ward-drobe. It is great for your bachlorette party or a girls night out where experimenting and being trendy can be fun and appreciated. But bridal makeup should be soft and pretty, classic and timeless.
If you have a special event coming, clip out some pictures and go for classi looks, nothing too "today" or too dramatic - save that for other events where you are not the star of the show. If you would like to schedule an appoint for a makeup application, lesson or bridal trial, please contact us. We look forward to meeting you!
