So you’re getting married soon and you’re hearing from friends, family, wedding planners, and social media that hiring a makeup artist for your wedding day might be a good idea. But perhaps you don’t wear much (or any) makeup on a regular basis and you’re concerned about looking like yourself. Plus, everything around wedding planning costs so much. Is this additional expense really worth it?

I know that as a makeup artist specializing in weddings and events you might think I am particularly biased, but hear me out. There are 10 really good reasons why you should consider hiring a professional makeup artist on your wedding day:

  1. Professional Expertise: A makeup artist brings extensive knowledge and expertise in creating bridal looks. We understand different skin types, tones, and facial features, and we know how to apply and set makeup so that it stays in place alllll day long and into the night.

  2. Stress-Free Experience: Hiring a makeup artist allows you to relax and enjoy your wedding day. The time you spend getting ready is the only peaceful time you will have all day to get centered and prepare for the upcoming whirlwind! Let me handle all the details and ensure that you feel pampered and confident.

  3. Personalized Approach: A makeup artist will work closely with you to understand your vision and preferences. We customize your bridal look to enhance your natural beauty and complement your wedding theme, style, and attire.

  4. Long-lasting Makeup: This one bears repeating: professional makeup artists use high-quality products and techniques that are specifically designed for longevity. We will ensure that your makeup stays fresh and flawless throughout the entire day, even through tears, hugs, and dancing.

  5. Photography Enhancement: Makeup artists are skilled in creating makeup looks that photograph beautifully. We understand how lighting and photography can affect your appearance, and we use our expertise to make you look stunning both in person and in your wedding photos.

  6. Time-saving: With a makeup artist, you can save time on your wedding day. We will efficiently handle your makeup application, allowing you to focus on other important aspects of your day, such as spending time with loved ones and getting ready at a relaxed pace.

  7. Confidence Boost: Having a professional makeup artist by your side will carry you confidently into one of the most social and photographed days of your life. We know how to highlight your best features, cover any imperfections, and enhance your natural beauty, so that you feel radiant and self-assured throughout the day.

  8. High-Quality Product: All makeup is not created equally. Inexpensive products full of cheap fillers can look funky under different lighting situations. It’s generally loaded with stuff that at best is not great for the long-term health of your skin and the environment, and at worst can cause rashes and breakouts – not what you want on your wedding day! A makeup artist worth their salt will use high-quality products that will be healthy for your skin and maintain color integrity throughout the day. I use luxurious nontoxic makeup and skin care products, carefully selecting the right product for your skin type and your desired look.

  9. Specialized Techniques: Makeup artists are trained in application techniques that will help your makeup to stay put so that it doesn’t slide off in the hot summer sun and wind conditions. We can create various looks, whether you prefer a natural, romantic, glamorous, or bold style. We can also skillfully apply false lashes, create a perfect winged eyeliner, and contour your face to create definition. Our application techniques will help your makeup to stay put so that it doesn’t slide off in the hot Gorge summer sun and wind conditions.

  10. Peace of Mind: By hiring a makeup artist, you can rest assured that you are in capable hands. We have the experience and expertise to handle any unexpected situations that may arise, ensuring that you look and feel your best on your wedding day.
