Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day and having your wedding makeup done by a professional is recommended. Not only does it save the bride time and effort on this nervous day, but the bride has a chance to look her best for one of the most important days of her life.
There are many highly qualified wedding makeup artists that have been properly trained estheticians and experts in their field. You can always find a good makeup artist recommended by venues or online on wedding referral websites. Most makeup artists will also be able to do your entire bridal party as well and many offer a free test run before the wedding day to make sure you are happy with their work.
To get ideas for makeup, you may want to look through fashion magazines, and some artists may have portfolios of their previous work to show you. Alot of bride's tend to want a more natural look for their wedding day rather then a look of heavy makeup. Some artists also are skilled in doing hair as well so you may want to ask them if they can do both for a set fee to cut costs of hiring a separate stylist.
Most wedding makeup artist prices run anywhere between $100-200.00 for bride's makeup and a smaller fee per person for each additional person.
