Makeup by Keri Ann is an on-location, Houston makeup artist sharing these important wedding makeup tips and tricks and a little insight to why you should hire a professional...
1. Why should I hire a professional makeup artist for my wedding day makeup?
A professional makeup artist knows what makeups photograph well, making sure you not only look flawless on your wedding day, but also just as beautiful in your wedding photographs. A professional makeup artist will match your skin tones by blending and creating your perfect foundation shade. They also know what colors make eyes pop and of course they know how to properly apply eyelashes!
Rates for a professional makeup artist will vary based on their experience and your location. The average price for a retail counter makeover is $50 and usually requires an additional product purchase. For on-location wedding day makeup services, plan on spending at least twice this amount. An on-location wedding makeup artist has to account for travel, time spent on-location and the cost of supplies. You might be paying a little more, but the individual attention and convenience is priceless!3. What should I look for when hiring a wedding day makeup artist?
Referrals are always helpful. Ask your photographer, venue and event planner if they have any professional makeup artists to recommend. If you found someone on your own, ask your wedding vendors if they know anything about the makeup artist you are considering. Good questions to ask are, which wedding makeup artist is known to show up on time and which makeup artist keeps the client waiting. Extra tip...having a trial run is the best way to determine if that wedding makeup artist can create your bridal vision.
4. How long will my wedding makeup take to do on my wedding day?
I personally like to allow an hour per person. Some makeup artists are faster, but I like to take my time!
5. Will my wedding makeup stay fresh all day long?
A professional makeup artist will have solutions to keep your wedding makeup in place, keeping you flawless all day long!
6. What can I do to make sure my skin looks its best on my wedding day?
Have a tried and true skin care routine in place months before your wedding. Don't change products within four weeks of your wedding and hydrate your skin by drinking lots of water!
