Makeup by me

Flower hat shoot

Flower power

I had the opportunity to work alongside two brilliant people the other day.

Shaun Hodge, the photographer and Jade Sakura model.

I had a beautiful, custom made headpiece by the talented designer Rosadior to use for this shoot. It was brilliantly made! We came up with a few looks and had created some amazing shots. I have a few behind the scenes photos to share with you. Mainly of our little helpers: my daughter and Shaun’s dogs. 🙂

Why hire a makeup artist for your wedding day

20087012301_26b9e745a1_o

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!
