Preparing For Your Bridal Makeup

It’s you on your most beautiful day!  That’s the first thing you should think when you see your wedding photos.  Planning your bridal look should be as fun and exciting as planning the other aspects of your wedding.  Whether it’s a look you spotted on your favorite social media site such as Instagram or Pinterest or a glamorous look you spotted in a bridal magazine Makeup In The 702 turns your vision into a reality. 

So what things should you consider when planning your bridal makeup and hairstyle.  Here’s a few tips to get you started.

What’s your personal style?  Do you usually go for sultry shades of bronze and smoky eyes or do you usually wear soft neutral shades?  Whatever your personal style is start with that…. Remember it’s YOU…. On YOUR most beautiful day.

Next consider the overall theme/style of your wedding, the location, the dress, lighting, indoor or outdoor and your hairstyle. 

Are the other elements of your wedding day soft, vintage and whimsical?  Perhaps they’re more rustic or very trendy and modern…. A rockin’ night club makeup look with rich colors might not go well with a soft beachy wedding.

Have fun with your planning… there’s tons of inspiration out there.  Scour social media, bridal magazines and wedding planning sites like The Knot and Wedding Wire and have fun. Try some of the elements that catch your eye in advance…. mix and match looks ideas, take some selfies, you’ll quickly rule out what absolutely doesn’t work for you. 

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL makeup artist! Investing in a professional makeup artist like us should be an item that you include in your overall wedding budget.  Just as you’ve researched your other vendors you read reviews, check their licensing and credentials, and view their body of work. Then based upon what you like and after your conversation with the hair and makeup artist, you make your decision to hire them. When you talk to your hair and makeup artist, your conversation should be easy and effortless. If they don’t have time to talk to you beforehand or the conversation seemed odd, chances are- they are not the hair and makeup team for you.

While you’re planning and thinking about your bridal look remember to take care of the skin you’re in!  Our mantra GOOD SKIN AND GOOD COLOR GO HAND-IN-HAND!  We have some fabulous skin care tips here ( for your wedding day and every day.

In the end it really comes down to this… after the cake is eaten and the guests have gone home the only thing that is left of this most amazing day are your memories and the photographs.
