Why hire a professional Makeup Artist?
It is extremely important to have a professional makeup artist do your makeup on your wedding day or event. Knowing how to apply makeup to be camera ready is completely different from applying your everyday makeup look. A professional Makeup Artist not only considers your skin tone, eye color and hair color, I gauge the application geared to the types of light sources that will be present when your photos are taken.
Do you offer airbrush makeup?
Yes! Airbrush makeup is my number one most requested look! It’s perfect for flawless-appearing skin. It is 24-hour wear, that is lightweight, non-greasy, and waterproof, which is important for those of you who plan to cry or sweat on your wedding day, it is lightweight, and non-greasy. Brides love it!
Why is a makeup trial important?
This is when we meet, discuss, plan, and make your dream look come true. It’s like a practice session in preparation for a public appearance. After we create your makeup look that is timeless and elegant, we will discuss wedding day timelines. My job is to make you feel at ease in every way.
What can I expect during our makeup session?
You can expect a wonderful, relaxing, calming, and personalized experience. It’s a time for me to enhance your best features, ultimately creating the perfect look for your most special day. I will spend as much time as we need in order to achieve what you’ve dreamed of.
Is there really a difference between drug store makeup and professional makeup?
Professional makeup is made with better quality base ingredients, which cause the products to have better and longer wearability, glide on more smoothly, crease and crack less often, and are often gentler on the skin. These products may also contain ingredients to help increase firmness, help with acne, and camouflage wrinkles. Professional makeup contains a higher amount of pigment (color) vs fillers. The pigments (color) are more finely ground, therefore making the color look more intense and truer. As well, professional products often have a wider color range. High end powders are milled more finely, which helps to create a flawless finish and is also less likely to contain irritating ingredients, such as talc. The sunscreens are also not as high. The titanium dioxide (sunscreen) in drug store brands are more light reflective, which can wreak havoc on your images. Professional makeup brushes, as well, are crucial for a flawless and perfect application.
Why hire a licensed makeup artist?
These are great questions to ask and definitely ones that we makeup artists hear often. In today's world where DIY is trending and Youtube tutorials are flourishing, it's no wonder why women are unsure why they should hire a stranger to do their makeup for their special event when they can google how to do a simple smokey eye in five minutes. However, a professional artist definitely has a lot to bring to the table!
1. Advanced product tool knowledge.
Most professional makeup artists have some prior education in makeup artistry. This means they have actually studied and practiced with a variety of products and tools even before becoming a professional. It also means that they know the right products and tools to use to create your best look!
2. Understanding Of how Makeup Translates On An HD Camera
The knowledge of how your makeup will translate to a camera is essential for any event where photos will be taken. No one wants to spend a large amount of money for a professional photographer and photos and then discover that your face is ten shades darker than the rest of your body (yikes)!
3. Full Professional Makeup Kit
This is one of the most important aspects to consider when deciding whether or not to hire a professional makeup artist. If you want great professional photos, you need a makeup artist with quality professional products. These products are made to be used for high quality film and photos so it's a must for your special event! Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words!
4. Educated In Specialized Techniques
Corrective makeup, makeup longevity, application of false lashes, mens grooming, and of course airbrush! These skills and more are what a professional artist has been trained to do. These techniques will boost your look to the next level!
Dirty brushes just simply don't perform as well as clean brushes. Plus unclean product is a great way to spread germs and potentially experience acne or an eye infection. Professionals take your health seriously and always strive to provide you with the best experience possible.
6. Knowledge Of Makeup Applications For Various Skin Types
Oily, combination, dry, sensitive, and balanced, these are just a few of the skin types professional makeup artists work with on a regular basis. This type of experience is priceless! We have seen it all, and no matter what the case, a professional makeup artist will help you look and feel beautiful!
7. Custom Foundation Matching
