Many brides decide to scrimp by not hiring a makeup artist to apply their makeup on the wedding day. Getting your makeup done on this special day is all part of the pampering every bride deserves. It will also help the bride relax and give her confidence that she looks her very best. Your weddng day makeup should be different from your everyday street makeup becaus it's not everyday you are wearing a long white lace gown and making vows to spend the rest of your life with the love of your life. Have the artist emphasize but not overdo you eyes and best features so they are shown off in your photos and video of your big day. You don't want to look washed out, and when you are wearing a long white dress it's a real possibility. Have your makeup artist do a trial so you can judge how much is too much, and what is just right! Just as you would do a hair trial, your makeup is just as important to your total look. If you can afford it, treat your bridesmaids to makeup as well. Just keep an eye on the time, you don't want to be late for your own wedding!
