If you want to glow on your wedding day, don’t take the risk of not spending a week or at least a day exercising a good moisturizing routine. Keeping your skin moisturized will ensure smooth and even application of makeup.
And, again, make sure your face is clean. No lipsticks, no foundation, no liner, no mascara, no nothing! Makeup artists will provide all of these things, and will want to apply them for you as part of their whole package.
Take time to relax and drink lots of water because dehydrated skin can be hard to work with and can make a foundation base look much denser than it is.
Silence is key but don’t be afraid to speak up when there is something you are not happy with as regards your makeup. Try as much as possible to be patience because things might not look the way you expect in the middle of your makeover but talk to your Makeup artist about your hopes because the last thing either of you wants is to walk away with regret, and the only way to prevent that is clear communication.
Don’t demand the impossible although your Makeup artists will do everything in his/her power to achieve the look you are aiming for on your behalf, she’s not going to be able to change the fact that you look like you. You’re beautiful, obviously!
Plan for small touch ups, most Makeup artists agree that on big days, like your wedding day, it’s wise to plan a few moments later in the day to add a little powder to your look, blot any oil, and touch up your lipstick. So sneak away between your ceremony and your reception and give yourself a quick check.
And on a final note if you really want to show your gratitude, recommend them to your friends and family. Your referral keeps them in business and is one of the very best and most sincere thank you’s you can extend.
