Your wedding day
THE WEDDING DAY
Remember, this is your special day. Many brides want to please everyone on their wedding day and forget about themselves. This day should be about you and feeling the most beautiful you’ve ever been. I appreciate the importance of looking and feeling stunning on the day with as little stress as possible.
A trial is recommended 4-8 weeks before the wedding day, this will include testing for any sensitivity to the make-up products. Everything discussed and the products chosen during the trial will be documented. I always take pictures. The trial usually takes between 1-2 hours, although I will be with you until you are completely happy with the result.
Even though wedding makeup is usually very simple and neutral, it’s one of the hardest makeup looks to create, since it has to be PERFECT. After all, it is your big day!
Makeup should last all day, through all the crying, hugging, kissing, eating and dancing. You’ll probably want to get your mascara waterproof, lips to be kiss proof, and your skin makeup to be bombproof.
Get your brows plucked and shaped (possibly even dyed) before the wedding day. If you pluck them on your wedding day, your brows may look red, swollen and irritated.
If you’re going to wear contact lenses on your wedding day, put the lenses on before applying your makeup.
Try not to stress too much (easier said than done, I know!). Stress may cause impurities on your skin. If you have some impurities, do not pick at them as it makes them worse! Also, put a clean pillowcase on every night and drink plenty of water.
