Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Planning A Stress-Free Destination Wedding

As a Las Vegas wedding makeup artist, I always meet brides who could use some help with wedding planning.

Wedding planning can be stressful when you have so many decisions to make and barely enough time. When it comes to a Las Vegas destination wedding, stress should be the last thing on your mind.

Fun, freedom, and love are the theme of our city. These are the feelings we want you to associate with your wedding day.

Here are some tips to keep your cool during the planning process.

1. Hire A Las Vegas Wedding Planner

Your wedding planner will help you during your engagement and on your wedding day more than anyone else.

Especially if you’re from out of town, choose to hire a Las Vegas destination wedding planner.

Local wedding planners know all of the best vendors and places to get married.

Your wedding planner can vouch for you at meetings and sign contracts if you aren’t able to make it. Plus, they will be able to run errands and zip up your dress if you choose to elope without any bridesmaids.

2. Visit Your Venue

If you can, plan to tour your venue beforehand.

If you’re trying to pick between two venues, use this time to visit both locations and make a decision. The rest of your wedding planning revolves around your venue choice so this is important!

You can schedule any necessary appointments to meet with vendors and finalize details during this trip. You will feel a lot more relaxed knowing the big decisions are taken care of.

Destination Wedding Makeup | Kate and Casey

When you get asked to fly for a destination wedding to do the brides wedding makeup and hair, you cant help but feel so excited and thrilled! Kate married Casey on 5.18.17 in beautiful St Augustine, Florida at The White Room a gorgeous venue overlooking the Lions Bay Bridge. Casey having some Hawaiian roots, Kate and Casey chose to have Hawaiian styled elements throughout the ceremony and reception with a simple laid back feel. Therefore, when it came to Kate’s makeup, we went for the same approach.

When I get asked for destination wedding makeup and hair, sometimes it can be a little tricky depending on what the climate is, as Vegas has complete opposite weather from Florida’s natural humidity. This is where my skill in chemistry comes in handy. Most people don’t think about the chemistry behind wedding makeup, but there is TONS of chemistry behind application and product to achieve long wear durability.

When determining what type of wedding makeup to apply, we first evaluate the clients skin type and texture, then build from there. I used a very light weight airbrush spray foundation on Kate with an underlying matte primer to help with the humidity a bit. Kate requested a very understated simple, but clean look and I think we nailed it. We contoured her cheeks slightly with Lorac Pro shimmer in Moonlight and Mac Cosmetics sculpting powder in Shadester with a kiss of Nars Orgasm blush. Kate wore our kiss proof lipsense color in Bombshell.

While bride was happy and groom even happier staring into his princesses eyes, we were successful! Kate’s wedding makeup was stunning and Alex did such an amazing job capturing their love for each other!
