I truly love my beautiful brides and It's always a true pleasure when I'm hired to create flawless & picture perfect bridal makeup.
The most important thing about your wedding isn't the location, reception nor flowers. Your memories and photo's are all that you have left after your weddings is over. That's why it's very important to hire a professional wedding photographer, makeup artist and hair stylist for your very special day.
Do not go the CHEAP ROUTE when it comes to PMS (photography, makeup, stylist). Yes I said it! PMS!!! Don't be cheap when it comes to those 3 key factors. You want to invest in the best and the best is what you should have. Now I know that everyone is on a tight budget when it comes to their wedding. But certain corners should not be cut when it comes to your wedding.
Searching for a professioal makeup artist can be time consuming and expensive. But you do want to do your reseach and investigate. Yes investigate for your ideal artist!!! Just because the makeup artist prices are low and fits into your ideal budget; doesn't mean that his/her work is good. When you pay for cheap or free services. Trust me you are paying for what you asked for!! No lie! I've seen it a million times. I suggest you start your search at least 6 month in advance. Just to do some makeup artist shopping and get an idea on prices/rates and trails/consultations. You want to feel comfortable with the person that you hire and someone that can create your desired dream face.
Ask your wedding coordinator, wedding photographer, friends/family if they can recommend a professional makeup artist. You will be surprise of how many people know a makeup artist.
Contact the makeup artist inquiring about their work. See if they have a website/blog showcasing their own professional artistry.
