Wedding Wednesday, Let's Talk Make Up
It is safe to say that I cannot "DO" make-up. Sure, I can cover myself in foundation, slick on some lipstick and put mascara on my lashes but that other stuff? Nope.
That thing you do to make it look as if you have cheek bones? No, I cannot do that. and that white stuff, to highlight bits, I DO NOT HAVE A CLUE WHERE YOU PUT THAT.
I do not even own a lipliner.
I would say that I have the make-up skills of a 14 yr old girl, but those girls have STRONG skills these days. I am in AWE of teenage girls contouring skills. I do not dooooooooo make up.
Therefore, for my big day. I have hired a MUA, and it will be the best money I have ever spent.
Yes, I understand that for some people, hiring someone to do your make up is just not something you can add to the budget. Some people have MAD SKILLS and do not need a MUA, but for me, it is a way of making me feel even more special on my big day.
By hiring a make-up artist for my wedding, I know that my make-up will also last much longer than if I apply it and be a million times better than I could ever do.
Last Saturday I actually had my make up trial and I LOVED the whole look. I actually booked my make up trial for the same day as my pre-wedding shoot with my wedding photographer. Well if I'm going to be having awesome make up on, I might as well get some great shots too, right?
Don't be scared to tell your MUA exactly what you are looking for, and also if you don't like what they have done, ask them to change it. It is your big day, you don't want to be sobbing uncontrollably down the aisle because your lipstick is shit, do you?
Want to see my wedding make-up look?
Originally I had a very nude lip, but it did me no favours so we changed to more of a pink lip, the eyes are quite a glamorous smoky look, with false lashes that I adore but can not do myself.
For me, hiring an MUA was an easy decision, What would you do for your wedding? Or what DID YOU do?
Let me know, I would love to hear your thoughts.
