Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Alyse and Ken

This glam bride chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist for her special day. We loved getting to create this old Hollywood look for our gorgeous bride.

Alyse and Ken were absolutely stunning with a wedding at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. It was the perfect spot with plenty of room because it was just the two of them!

I mean, let’s talk about what a showstopper that dress is! With her dress making such a bold statement, Alyse really wanted her hair and makeup to have an effortless look. As a result, Ken couldn’t keep his eyes off her!

The Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Look

Alyse really wanted her eyes to pop so we added lots of lashes with a little smoke. We kept her eyeshadow colors a natural, bronze hue and mixed in some highlight to give her that extra glow on her cheekbones.

Alyse was not used to wearing a lot of lipstick so we went with a nude lip and a lot of gloss on top.

The neckline of Alyse’s dress was so eye-catching and a side swept hairstyle with a slide clip proved to be the perfect complement.

The Wedding Venue

The backdrop for the ceremony was epic! If you are a bride who is wanting a more unique and unconventional wedding ceremony, the Neon Museum is the perfect place that brings old world Vegas with a modern, hipster approach.

This is such a cool venue for all kinds of events. Lots of couples choose to have their engagement photos shot here, too!

Alyse and Ken were so happy with the outcome of their Las Vegas destination wedding! We couldn’t be more thrilled for this couple and wish them all the best going forward with their new marriage. We are so glad Alyse chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist because we loved being apart of their day.

Why Do Wedding Hair and Makeup Trials Cost?

How do you find a wedding hair and makeup artist with out spending hundreds of dollars on trial after trial, and why do they cost in the first place, if they are a trial? Does this sound like you? Your not the only bride who is wanting her wedding hair and makeup to be perfect. Here are some tips and guidelines and a bit of education as to why trials cost, and how to find the right artist in order to have a successful trial.

First and foremost, a wedding hair and makeup trial starts with researching your artist. Look for reviews, and images of their work but also, how they conduct business, will say everything in the initial discovery email.

Next, it starts with you. Yes, YOU! As artists we cant read minds and when you tell us you want “natural makeup” that might mean different to the artist versus you, especially, if you arent used to wearing makeup at all! We recommend  starting to wear a bit more makeup, if your not used to wearing any at all just so you and your skin can get used to the look and feeling. Also, getting on a good skin care routine is also recommend so your wedding hair and makeup can look prestine and less cakey. Makeup doesnt look good on dry, dehydrated or under nourished skin.

As artists, we base our rates on time, product, and experience.

For the artist, there is a lot of experience that goes into making sure a brides trial is successful! One, knowing how to work and communicate with the bride is critical in being able to pin point the exact wedding hair and makeup look she’s going for and make her happy. Knowing how to work with the right foundation and products and see how they are oxidizing on her and knowing if they are oxidizing the wrong way, to be able to make that change – at the time of the trial. All this comes from the LEVEL of experience the artist or artists have.

If the brides not happy with certain looks, knowing how to communicate with the bride and help her get to the level she’s wanting. Its kind of like “Say Yes to the Dress” if you ever watched that show but its say “yes to the wedding hair and makeup!!” This entire process can take up to 2 hours. and thats why we put a rate on a bridal trial.

Last,  Professionalism, professionalism- its such a key factor in creating a gorgeous look for a happy bride!
