If you’re a soon-to-be-bride, you’ve probably been thinking about what you want in terms of your bridal makeup. You’ll want to feel beautiful, comfortable, and know that your makeup will last all day. That’s why it’s important to think about who you want to do the makeup far in advance. While many brides do their “I Do” makeup themselves, many others go to spas, salons, or makeup studios and have a professional bridal makeup artist take the wheel.
About 82% of women say they feel more confident whilst wearing makeup, and on your wedding day, it’s extremely important to feel more confident and beautiful than ever. There are a few things that go into planning your makeup for the best day of your life. Let’s take a look at a few things you need to consider before getting your makeup done.
Consider Your Hair, Theme, and Dress
Many people tend to choose a makeup look that pulls everything together. For instance, if you have a wedding that involves pinks, whites, and golds, staying with a makeup look that is natural and more toned-down than others will help with the aesthetic. If your wedding has a more rustic vibe, consider going with a fall-colored lip to work well with the theme.
Figure Out Who Will Do the Makeup
While many people choose to do their wedding makeup and hair themselves, others choose to have someone else provide those spa services for them. Having someone else do your makeup gives you the chance to relax and not have to worry about getting your makeup perfect. Hiring an artist from a spa or makeup shop will also come in handy in terms of your bridesmaids. Someone is going to have to do their makeup as well, and you probably don’t want to deal with putting false eyelashes on all of your girls before the ceremony.
Decide How Much Money You Want to Spend
Yes, getting your makeup and hair done can be pretty pricey. However, so can those individual trips to the makeup store to purchase all of your wedding makeup. If you want to get your makeup done, but don’t know where to look, reach out to friends that have gotten married and see if they have any recommendations.
When considering what you want to do for your wedding makeup, there is a lot to think about. You need to decide if you want to do it yourself or have someone from a spa do it. You also need to think about how much money you’re willing to spend. Take some time a few months before your wedding to lay out all of your options, and make your decision from there.
