Why hire a makeup artist for your wedding day


Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day! Hiring a professional makeup artist to do your makeup ensures just that. Having a good makeup artist on the day is just as important as having a good photographer!

If you need more reasons then let me tell you a few:

Stress free on your wedding day

When a professional makeup artist does your makeup on the wedding day it will be done well. You will not need to worry about it. You can relax and be pampered. It will give you a chance to sit down on a day that will surely be manic.

Quality products

A makeup artists kit is stocked with tried and tested products. These have been tried in front of camera and also on other brides so they will stay on all day. This added to the professional application will ensure the best look for you all day.

Pro tips and tricks

Makeup artist were trained in enhancing your best features and making you look your best with little ‘tricks’ and also to look your best on camera too. They will also make it last all day.

Colour selection

A makeup artist studied (and practiced) to find the right colour tones for you in foundation, lipstick and all the way through to eye shadow colour. They will also make sure that you don’t look like you are wearing a mask due to a different colour on your neck…

So… will you be hiring a makeup artist for your most memorable day of your life?

If your answer is YES, don’t forget to look around and research. You get what you pay for, so I would advise you not to look for a cheap deal as it might be disappointing. You want someone who has a style you can relate to. Have a trial with them 6-8 weeks before the wedding so you work out what you want to look like on your wedding day. Once agreed you can just focus on the rest of the preparations. Enjoy!

Artliner 24h from Lancôme

The other day I had the pleasure of working with some new Lancome products and the Artliner 24h grabbed my attention.
I love them! They are easy to apply, great colours and they also last. I wore it all day and it did not move, did not smudge. It stayed put all day.

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes mascara

Hi Everyone!
I am quite new to blogging, so please be patient with me. 🙂
So, here it goes:
Recently I had the pleasure to try out the new mascara from Bobbi Brown.
The Smokey Eye…
As the name suggests it is jet black. It lengthened my lashes but didn’t separate them as much as I would have liked. With one coat it is not too bad but as I tried to make them look thicker with a second coat my lashes started sticking together.
All in all, I like the new mascara though. If you have a spare wand it works wonders. Easy to put on, great colour and it really made my eyelashes look long.
