DESIGNING YOUR MAKEUP LOOK
There are many factors that go into choosing a makeup look for your wedding day. First, the time of day will somewhat dictate how intense your makeup should be. You’ll also want your makeup to tie in with the overall look and feel of the wedding. THE MOST IMPORTANT factor is making sure the makeup suits your style and comfort level. You should feel excited about the way you look. It should feel special and have a little “wow!” factor but not feel like you traveled too far away from your normal self. You want to look the best vision of yourself.
Trial Run Through / Consultation
Most brides opt for a preview of what their wedding day look will be. We will begin by looking at inspirational pictures and discussing your wedding details and personal style. I allot plenty of timefor us to experiment and fine tune every little detail. These consultations are much like a partnership. I’ll depend on you to guide me towards things you like as I build your look step by step. I’ll use my expertise to help guide you through the process.
What’s Different About Bridal Makeup
Bridal makeup is different than other types of makeup. It needs to look fresh and lovely in person, photograph beautifully, and hold up for an entire day. A lot of the makeup we wear in everyday life does not play well with the professional camera. Bridal artists must also carry makeup that withstands sweat and tears. The makeup must be applied in a way to combat all of the things we don’t want: fine lines, blemishes, oil, dry patches, streaks and more tears. The makeup needs to be very detailed so the close up photos look beautiful and contoured enough so that the features stand out from a distance. These are all common challenges that trained professional makeup artists who specialise in bridal makeup are used to meeting.
Together with our in house Bridal Makeup artist Michelle McHugh, our philosophy is simple but essential: we enhance your natural beauty by designing a look that fits you from the inside out.
We believe brides should look natural as possible, a sheer flawless finish that lasts all day with a stunning dewy finish for a youthful glow. Romantic pastel shades to compliment your eyes and up to date contouring techniques to give you that desired natural oval face.
Our mission is to get to know who you are so that we can create a vision guided together by your needs and our expertise. Radiating confidence on your wedding day is the key to looking and feeling your absolute best. Working with brides to achieve the best version of themselves for their wedding day includes a comprehensive consultation and a dedication to each individual’s personal taste and style.
