I’ve had professional makeup done a few times in my life and man does it make a difference who is applying it. I mean, I slap on some makeup every day and generally think it looks halfway decent-ish, but after seeing what a pro could do I knew I needed to hire someone for my wedding makeup.
My goodness they are so expensive! Every makeup person I asked was twice the price of my hair stylist! I swear in my next life I’m coming back as a makeup artist (or a teamster).
I asked my recently married friend, Emma, for her opinion on if the service was worth the cost. Emma works in dermatology so she knows skin stuff, and she looked gorgeous at her May wedding — like herself and not overly done up — exactly what I wanted.
“I felt the makeup was very pretty. It was different from anything I would normally do, but I still felt like myself,” Emma told me.
She went for two trials with the makeup artist in order to refine the makeup she wanted.
“I wanted a glamorous look but did not want thick cakey foundation. She was able to achieve all of this and she spent a lot of time on every detail of my makeup.”
“She stayed after I was in my dress and made sure my neck and chest were the same color as my face,” Emma added.
No one wants a makeup line, ever, but especially not on their wedding day! Still wary about the cost, I asked Emma one more time if she felt it was totally, super definitely worth it.
“It was the one part of my ‘getting ready’ process that I totally trusted and felt comfortable about,” she said. Ok, sold — I’m going to book a makeup artist. Hopefully she can cover my tattoos also … eep!
