They really do know their stuff 

  • For instance, makeup artists know that there are certain foundations not to be used when flash is going to be used, as this can produce  "ghost face" where the skin appears whiter in photographs (with flash). 
  • False lashes can be the difference between looking like you have hole sockets in your head and pretty eyes. Makeup artists can provide this service as well they know how to apply them, leaving you without a headache and anxiety! 
  • High-quality concealers/correctors to help correct any redness/acne or dark circles that you have! 
  • Know the latest trends that you may want for your special day. A makeup artist will practice a trend on their clients day in and day out.

Wedding Day Preview Makeup Service 

Most makeup artists will offer a preview wedding day service. This allows you to really know what you will look like before the big day, as well as many any changes you may want. 

Hiring someone to do your makeup can take a big stressor off your hands, with no need to worry about making your eye liner perfect with potentially nervous shakey hands! There are many areas in which DIY is appropriate for a wedding, however, makeup is not one of them!
