What Are Some Of the Benefits of Having A Professional On Hand for Brides?

Most people do not realize all the special needs that must be considered with bridal/wedding makeup. As simple as it may seem, it is anything but. A bride needs to look not only perfect in person, but also in photos (both color and black & white), video, natural sunlight, artificial light, as well as throughout the entire ceremony and lasting through any tears and sweat. Having knowledge of correct SPF balances in foundation and eye shadow textures are only a few more areas of expertise that are invaluable.

This is where a professional makeup artist comes in.

Not only does this take stress off you with reassurance that you will look perfect on one of the most important days of your life, but also allows you to focus so much more on truly enjoying your wedding day. This same concept can be applied to grad photos, prom, and other special events.
