Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, we are thrilled you've taken the time to drop by and check out our online site and took the time to view our portfolio and services. We are here to help you on the journey and assist you with all your bridal beauty needs.
As a bridal makeup artist and master esthetician, I often get asked, "What should I do to prepare my face and skin for my upcoming wedding?" My answer is always the same, "Have a good skincare routine, find the products that work best with your skin type, and get regular facials before the wedding to improve any areas of concern you might have. And of course, hire the best makeup artist in your area to help you with your wedding day makeup."
Where to Begin
Knowing your skin and what you want to achieve on your wedding day is your first step to having that bridal glow on your wedding day. I recommend that you sit down, scroll through your Pinterest and find the look you want to achieve on your wedding day. This helps you and your makeup artist or esthetician map out a plan for your skin.
Understanding Your Needs
The second step is to seek the advice of a professional skincare technician or an esthetician to help you establish a skincare routine and a makeup plan for your wedding day. It's a good idea to start getting regular facials every thirty days and start using your new products at least three months before the wedding so you can make any adjustments to your skincare routine if needed.
Your Skincare Routine
The team at 406 Makeup Artistry based in Helena Montana has complied their top 4 Summer skincare products to help you with your at-home skincare routine to give your skin that beautiful bridal glow on your wedding day.
DIY Bridal Makeup
Your wedding day makeup look can often become an overwhelming endeavor if you've never had a professional makeup application done before or if you just don't know what the appropriate wedding look should be. Your current at-home makeup kit probably isn't equipped to help you achieve an all-day wedding glow. If you decide you want to do your own wedding day makeup you should probably invest in a makeup product consultation to help you update your makeup kit with makeup products that are designed to stay in place all day. While you are updating your kit you can also request one-on-one makeup instruction to help you with your makeup application routine. If you don't have access to a makeup instructor or need help finding the right products check out the DIY Bridal Makeup book to help you through the makeup routine.
My advice whether you do your own makeup or decide to hire a makeup artist is to keep it simple and elegant. Your wedding day is not the day to test out a glam look or an overdone makeup application. Your wedding day makeup should be soft, subtle, and of course romantic.
To help you overcome any anxiety you might have about your wedding day makeup look I recommend you schedule a bridal trial makeup session with a seasoned makeup artist who has great reviews and who understands your needs. Then be sure to relay any changes you want to your makeup artist before the wedding day, this will help you and your artist have a stress-free makeup session on the day of your wedding.
We wish you all the best in your bridal beauty needs and congratulations on your upcoming nuptials.
