Weddings - Helpful Hints and makeup artist.
When looking for a makeup artist, make sure you feel very comfortable with him or her. Take some pictures from magazines of makeup you are considering for your wedding as well as colors of makeup you would like. Are you a more natural girl next door type or would you like a little more dramatic. Maybe you just don't wear makeup and you want just a little color or maybe you're more playful. Have fun with it, take mom or a girlfriend or your pet. (If they will let you take one) She or He is someone who wants to work with you, talk to him or her like your hair dresser, you don't need to rush or pick a makeup artist for the sake of just having one the day of your wedding. I have heard to many brides who cried because they hated the way their makeup artist put their makeup on the day of their wedding. They got one with out trying them out and it could be an invitation to disaster, because she made you more punk or something. Meet with them ahead of time. He/or she should be willing to meet with you before and have a session to talk about your likes and dislikes and she can do your makeup way ahead of time to see if He or she would be a good match for you. You will be a lot happier and excited for him/or her to pamper you on the day of your wedding especially if you already loved what she did. Helpful hints about Wedding Makeup.
