Doing Your Own Destination Wedding Makeup
You may find yourself in a location that does not offer you many or any makeup artists at all for that matter. Learning how to create a photo ready makeup look is a valuable skill that will empower your beauty and self confidence on your big day and any other time you want to create a special look for your self.
There are few things that you must know:
- Most women think they know how to do their own makeup. They’ll do it every day and they’ll think it looks good. But what you see face-to-face and what the camera reads are two different things. Hiring someone with a professional makeup background who understands how makeup reads in a photograph is an advantage. As a 20 year veteran in professional bridal makeup artistry education and training. I have immense experience and deep passion for teaching the skills and techniques needed to achieve photography ready, flawless, bridal makeup. Today I want to share my expertise with brides that would like to learn how to do their own makeup for their destination weddings and still achieve professional results.
- First of all I must say that having a professional makeup artist do your makeup on your wedding day is less stressful but…If you do have the option of hiring a local professional makeup artist then; remember to bring your makeup with you. And bring two shades of base — one that matches your skin tone now, and one that is one shade darker. After a few days in the sun, the makeup artist may need to blend the two in order to match your tanned skin tone. Even if a makeup artist says she has her own makeup — BRING YOUR OWN. You don’t want to chance the chance that your skin may break out from the make up that they use.
- Go for it. If you absolutely know that there is a dependable, professional makeup artist at the resort of your destination wedding that you can trust to create your bridal look for one of the most photographed days of your life.
- Or, better yet, if you can bring in a make up artist from back home that you have had a trial run with and can afford you can this luxury of paying the service, the travel and expenses; go for it. But when you can’t trust the resort make-up artist or can’t afford to bring the professional from back home, doing your own make up gives you flexibility and peace of mind.
I have designed a Destination Bridal Makeup Workshop that will introduce makeup techniques needed to achieve a flawless bridal look. Brides will learn modern tips and tricks to easily create classic, blushing and sultry bridal looks.
