Bridal Makeup

30Jun10

It’s wedding season-o-rama and while there seems to be little question in a bride’s mind regarding hiring a professional to do her hair, the same certainty doesn’t apply to hiring a professional makeup artist. Here are some pros and cons for doing your own makeup versus hiring a pro. (PS: There isn’t a wrong choice.)

Hiring a makeup artist: PROS

For once your foundation will 100% match your skin tone

They have the skillz for things like false eyelashes and airbrush makeup

You’ll feel like a celebrity on your wedding day

Hiring a makeup artist: CONS

If she goes crazy with the eye makeup you’ll look like a drag queen in pictures

It costs money

She might insist that ultra-shimmery face highlighter looks great in pictures (it doesn’t)

Doing your own makeup: PROS

Your husband-to-be will recognize you when you walk down the aisle

You’ll save money

You can choose to be trendy or classic without having to explain it to someone else

Doing your own makeup: CONS

Your version of the “natural look” might make you look washed out in pictures

For some reason brides tend to pile on matte powder, which is very aging

You won’t know any fancy tricks like subtle eye contouring and blending different shades of blush
