Why Hire Professional Makeup & Hair?

Hiring a professional makeup artist for your wedding is crucial to ensure you look your best. There is much more that goes into the art of makeup and hair than one would think. Only a professional has the training, knowledge and experience to capture that perfect look. Here are the main reasons why our brides hire us for their wedding day.

Every bride wants beautiful, flawless and glowing skin. Let’s be honest though, most women have one of the following: skin discoloration, acne, scars, or uneven pigmentation. So how do you go about getting that flawless skin without looking like you caked on your foundation? My secret is my airbrush machine. I use a water-based foundation by KETT that is buildable, allowing for very sheer coverage to heavy coverage (enough to cover a scar) without looking “cakey”. The foundation ultimately goes on much more evenly than traditional brush application.

Looking camera ready…As professionals we know what photographs well in HD photographs versus an iPhone, as some makeup does not photograph well. We know what colors to use on your eyes, cheeks, lips, etc. based on your coloring, age and skin tone. Lastly, we have the ability to make your makeup dark enough to show up in photos but not too heavy in person where you don’t look like yourself. With my brides, I always have the photographer snap a few shots of her makeup to make sure she looks camera ready.

Long lasting. Having your makeup and hair stay perfect all day is not the easiest thing to accomplish; as a bride you need it to last 12+ hours and withstand weather obstacles, often working against humidity, heat, rain, etc. We know all of the tricks and have the right products to make it last. My go to products to ensure the the makeup and hair will last.

Stress free. You don’t want to worry about your makeup and hair and it photographing well. We give you peace of mind so your day is worry free. We are onsite day of for your convenience and we design a timeline to ensure your prep goes smoothly and on time. Sometimes we even serve as a "psychologist" to help calm any pre-wedding jitters.

Bridal party is looking good. Everyone has that friend that thinks they know how to do their makeup or hair but definitely does not! We will make sure everyone looks their best and up to the brides standards.

Your wedding is the time to pamper yourself. As a bride, you are spending thousands and thousands of dollars on your wedding so paying for a professional to capture the perfect look is a no brainer.

We look forward to working with you!
