Bridal make-up is one area that often gets the short end of the stick when it comes to wedding arrangements. “It costs too much!” Solution: “I have a friend who can do it for me”. Disaster!! The result is often that you look terrible in your photos – the only thing you have left at the end of the day.
With the development of the digital age, the details on photos and videos have become very apparent. Also, with the large format albums, photos can now be printed 40 X 40 cm. Imagine bad make-up on a photo that size! Even if you have perfect skin it is advisable to get a professional make-up artist to highlight your best features. You obviously want to blow your groom away!
Make sure that the make-up used is photographic make up and will last the duration of the day. You don’t want to have your make-up done and then have a shiny look within 30 minutes. You also want to feel good when you enter the reception, so make sure that the quality of the make up is good.
Often Brides say “You can just Photo Shop it”. Contrary to popular belief not all issues can be resolved consistently in photoshop. It is also extremely time consuming and most photographers will charge you extra for their time.
Consider your make-up as an investment on your day. You will be looking at your photos for the rest of your life!
Speak to your photographer to get the name of a recommended make-up artist!
