Not sure how to find the right bridal makeup look for you? With so many styles and looks out there, how do you decide on just one look for the most important day of your life! Here are some helpful tips and tools to help you in finding that perfect look for you that will make heads turn!
Start With The Dress
Yep! Its nearly impossible to create a custom bridal makeup look without knowing what your dress will look like. Your wedding dress sets the tone and the mood for your overall look and feel. Ask yourself…..is my dress elegant, bohemian, more sophisticated… This will help determine the look, mood and feel that will help set the tone.
Start A Pinterest Board
I always recommend to my brides to start a pinterest board and pinning different bridal makeup looks that you like. This is so helpful for your makeup artist. Once you pin a good few, we can start to see a pattern of what you like and it helps to start forming a look for you!
Think About Your Colors
Colors play a huge factor in designing and creating a bridal makeup look for you! If theres a certain pink shade, in your wedding bouquet, we like to match and pair it up with particular pink lip color. Or, perhaps bring our some additional wedding shades in the eye look. Make sure you communicate your wedding colors and bridesmaids dress colors to your artist so he or she can create something that will compliment these shades.
Share A Selfie
I always require a selfie and inspiration images, being sent to me before signing of contract, so that I can evaluate my brides face shape and be able to communicate to her my thoughts and ideas on the look and how that will translate on her with her facial features before evening stepping into the trial session or day of. Sometimes, we think a certain look would look great on us but if we have smaller or inset eyes, perhaps, another look could be more complimentary.
Overall, it is so important to hire the right makeup artist that can address all your concerns, as well as help you discover your dream look. A experienced makeup artist in bridal specifically can help you determine and discover all of this during the trial session or even before so your day of runs perfectly smooth and stress free!
