should get the chance to be pampered and adored. What’s more, all this should start before you even arrive at the ceremony. Despite all this, countless brides are still asking themselves if it’s worth investing is a professional makeup artist. If that sounds like you, let me stop you right now - the long and the short of it is yes, you absolutely should.
Of course, it’s completely understandable for brides to be somewhat skeptical about hiring a professional makeup artist for their wedding day. You do your own makeup on a daily basis so why should you pay someone to do it for you just because you’re getting married? It’s worth remembering that your wedding day is the most memorable day or your life, it’s no ordinary day so therefore surely nothing about you should be ordinary either.
A professional makeup artist will be able to make you look absolutely flawless. They’ll be able to advise you in what colours best suit your skin tone and will glow alongside your dress. They’ll be able to paint your eyes so they dazzle and will be able to give you expert advice on whether or not you’d benefit from a set of fake eyelashes etc. Remember, more often than not, makeup artistry is a makeup artist’s passion. Making women look gorgeous is what they do day in and day out, it’s what they’ve trained for years to do, so rest assured they know their trade.
The makeup you wear on a day to day basis simply won’t cut it when it comes to your wedding day either. It’s designed to be worn in natural light, not the dazzling light of your photographers flash, and likely won’t compliment you quite the same once you’re dressed all in white. If you hire a professional makeup artist however they’ll come with their own vast collection of makeup, all of which are far from your ordinary mascara and blushes and are designed to make you look your best. These professional cosmetics stop your skin from appearing washed out or shiny in photographs and will last all day and all night meaning you’re not having to vanish for a touch up every so often.

By hiring a professional makeup artist you may well be placing your face in someone else's hands but it doesn’t mean you’re losing control of your looks. It simply means that you get the benefit of a professional’s expertise and artistic hand while still being able to decide whether you wish to look traditional, natural or chic.
For those of you who still aren’t convinced that hiring a professional makeup artist is the way forward, consider this point again - you deserve to look and feel like a princess, you should get the chance to be pampered and adored. Your wedding day only comes around once so be sure to make the most of every second of it. Be pampered. Be adored. Be gorgeous!
