Wedding makeup features
First of all let’s specify some features of a professional wedding makeup:
Versatility. It should look appropriate in the morning, afternoon and evening, so a classic wedding makeup is usually a little brighter than a traditional day makeup but not so bright as an evening makeup.
Resistance. Makeup should be perfect from the very morning to the final dance of the newlyweds, to achieve that stylists use expensive professional cosmetics.
Photo and video suitability. One of the major tasks of a professional artist is to make the makeup look great not only in the real life but at photo and video shooting especially in the close-up shots. To achieve that artists use a number of techniques like special textures, careful shading and less reflective materials, etc.
Harmony. A makeup should be in harmony with the dress, hairstyle and bridal bouquet.

What to pay attention to when looking through the makeup artist portfolio?
We recommend starting your search of a make-up artist with reading reviews on wedding websites and portfolio reviews. The artist’s website should contain wedding makeups, the more the better. Pay attention to whether the makeups differ from each other or they are all of one type. Mark for yourself if the makeups suit the brides, whether their faces look fresh and not too overloaded with cosmetics. At the same time remember that we cannot judge the quality of a makeup and a level of an artist guided only by a photos because pictures almost always undergo a deep computer processing. As well as don’t blindly trust the reviews on the Internet. It’s just the first stage of the selection process. Let’s move forward to the second stage.
What’s a trial makeup session?
While the trial session pay attention at:
1. Brushes and other tools used by the artist. They should be clean. Responsible makeup artists take care about the safety of their clients and always keep their tools clean.
2. A make-up can be considered of a good quality:
3. Listen to your inner feelings. Evaluate whether the image fits you. If you have any doubt be sure to share it with the artist because finding the ideal makeup for you is one of the major goals of a trial session.
4. Check how the makeup will look over some time (remember it will need to stay the same throughout the whole day).
How to prepare your face for a wedding makeup?
