Why Book a Makeup Artist for your Wedding?

The date is set and your Lake District wedding venue in Cumbria is booked. The wedding photographer that you want is available and each time that you go for a wedding dress fitting you feel special, beautiful and just how you want to feel on your wedding day.

It is all perfect, almost perfect, what could possibly add that finishing touch?

Bridal makeup is not so much about striving for editorial perfection as it is about helping you be the most beautiful, most radiant version of yourself. You still want to look like you, the person that you have always been, but so much more so. That is probably what your family, friends and partner want too.

In hiring a Lake District Makeup Artist you gain access to their skills, experience and knowledge. Your makeup artist will not only know about wedding makeup, but also understand skin preparation and how to take care of any concerns that you might have. Your wedding makeup will be skilfully applied for a photo ready finish so that you look truly amazing in your wedding photographs.

By drawing on their experience from working with other suppliers, such as your wedding venue, hairstylist and wedding photographer, your makeup artist can ensure that you are ready on time. Which will help you stay relaxed and calm as you are getting ready for your wedding, regardless of the size of your bridal party.

A wedding makeup trial is a great way to explore your ideas for your wedding makeup, and to help settle your nerves about how you will look on your wedding day. Makeup trials are not so much about applying makeup perfectly but about developing that idea, and meeting the level of expectation a person has about how they wish to see themselves. By creating a mutual understanding between you as the client and the makeup artist, you can work together in creating the finished look. Your makeup artist will not tell you how your wedding makeup should look, but will advise and guide you accordingly.

A good makeup artist will also know how to change and adapt your wedding makeup should you change your mind about something. It is perfectly normal for brides to decide on a change to the lip colour or the style of eye makeup, for example. Most changes can easily be adapted from the finished look from your makeup trial, so that your wedding makeup is perfect for your Lake District wedding.

Remember that this experience is about you and your wedding day and we all want you to have the best day possible.
