1.) Hire a professional. You’re worth it!
Weddings can get pricey fast. In the age of DIY, many brides find themselves toying with the idea of doing their own makeup to save a bit of cash. DON’T. DO. IT. Your wedding day should be something out a dream. Don’t let yourself stress out over getting your eyebrows to be sisters, not twins. Let a professional makeup artist handle the task! You’ll have these photos for the rest of your life. You deserve to look flawless!
2.) Book your makeup artist early
As soon as you pick your date, start reaching out to your favorite makeup artists in your area and inquiring about pricing and availability. Often makeup artists are booked as far as 2 years in advance. Don’t wait until 3 months before your big day to start searching!
3.) Leave a little wiggle room in your timeline:
It’s better to be ahead of schedule than be rushed and stressing! Make sure you leave a little extra time for any hiccups that come up. You’ll be glad you did!
4.) Kick your skincare into overdrive
Start taking care of your skin NOW! Invest in yourself and visit an esthetician for advice on how to make your skin look its best for your big day. Healthy, glowing skin is the key to a flawless makeup application! 5.) Waterproof everything!
You’ve got an emotional day ahead of you, and you need your makeup to be everything-proof! Make sure your makeup artist is using EVERYTHING waterproof. This means eyeshadow primer, eyeliner, mascara, foundation, concealer, lipstick, and a great setting spray to top it off!
6.) Choose a look that you feel the most beautiful in
Everyone is going to have an opinion on how you should look and what you should do. This is YOUR day! Whatever you decide, choose something that makes you say “WOW. I’ve never felt more beautiful!” Nothing else matters.
7.) just RELAX!
Do your best not to sweat the small stuff and just enjoy this day surrounded by your loved ones. Relax and take in every second while you can.
