What would a professional MUA do for me on the wedding day?
You may wonder what a pro could do for you that you couldn’t do for yourself. Here are some of the main points to remember when deciding if professional wedding day makeup is for you.
Help get your skin in great condition~
Well ahead of your big day, your MUA can advise you on your skin care routine. They can advise you on products and techniques that will get your skin glowing months in ahead of the wedding. This will benefit you long term too. I have many clients that carry on with the routine I have suggested after the wedding day because they really do see the improvement in their skin.
Your skin will have time to adjust to the new routine and products. This will mean you will need less makeup to look good on a daily basis. Do you have any skin concerns or have problematic skin? Your artist can help you find out what the issue is and correct your regime to help combat the issue.
Find the right colour match~
Whether it be foundation or eye shadow, a professional artist is trained in colour theory. They can help you find the perfect colour pallet to suit you personally. They can assist you in trialing colours on the eyes to find which colours bring out your eye colour.
Have you ever struggled to find the perfect red lipstick or blusher? No problem for a pro MUA, they can advise you on how to identify the skins undertone which is so important when picking out products.
Foundation is always a tricky one to choose because there are so many on the market. You walk down the cosmetic aisles saturated with product but how do you know which product to pick? Your MUA will be trained in skin tones and types so will help find the perfect match for your skin and your requirements. After all, you really don’t want to have the stress of this when applying your wedding day makeup.
Apply everything to perfection~
Professional make-up artists are fully trained in different techniques of applying makeup. They will know how to give your products longevity and make sure that your look will last from the I-Do’s through to the Goodnights.
Skin preparation is the key here. Your MUA will know what products work in harmony with one another to prevent them sliding on the skin or wearing off after an hour. A good artist will apply products expertly and give you great coverage but without it being heavy or cakey.
You won’t have to worry about your eyeliner matching or finding a mascara that will last through tears. Your professional will take away all the pressure so that you can just sit back and relax with a glass of bubbles and enjoy the morning.
It’s the experience~
People think that having your makeup done professionally is just that, but it is so much more.
Hiring a pro is also for the experience, it’s a whole package.
Yes, you will have your makeup done and you will look amazing but, it should also about how you are made to feel. Your MUA will help you relax and keep you calm throughout the getting ready process. You will pampered like royalty.
I always advise my brides to think of me as their personal assistant for the day. I will be at your beckon call from the moment I arrive to the time you leave for your ceremony.
The service I offer not only includes makeup. It’s about having someone there that can keep you calm, cut labels out, tweak hair, help you with earrings and shoes, I will even be on hand to help you dress.
My brides get my undivided attention, nothing is too much trouble. There is not much that I haven’t done for a bride on her wedding day, I can tell you. It is my job to make sure you have no excess stress or worry. That may mean me sending away a bridesmaid that is a bit too excitable or asking reception to bring up more champagne flutes (I’m also a dab hand at popping corks too!), I am there to assist YOU.
