October 31st, 2017

It is said that a girl looks prettiest on her wedding day. Not because of her elaborate gown or gorgeous make-up but because she is brimming with joy. If you are a bride-to-be, it is highly plausible that you are already glowing with excitement for the beginning of happy tidings. 

However, you still would need that extra touch of glamor for your big day. This can only be done with the help of a wedding makeup artist in Edmonton. We understand the pressures are going through to find the perfect dress, the right shoes and the picture-perfect makeup for your wedding day. So here are a few tips to help you get started with your search for a good wedding makeup artist:

Start Your Search Early On

The saying, ‘make hay when the sun shines’ applies to wedding preparations as well. It is important that you start looking for prospective wedding makeup artists well in advance. When you start your search early, you have enough time to weigh in your options and opt for the best professional. It is always ideal to choose a make-up artist who understands your personal style and complements your thinking. 

Read Reviews

These days most makeup artists have a very strong digital presence. You can look up their Facebook page or their website for customer reviews and testimonials. Alternately, you can also ask your friends and family for suggestions for a wedding makeup artist in Edmonton. While talking to prospective makeup artists, make sure you ask them if they can travel to your wedding venue to do your makeup and styling.

Browse For Wedding Looks

We recommend that you search for your cosmetic look online before you approach a makeup artist. You need to figure out the look you want for yourself for your wedding. So, browse through some wedding hairstyles and makeup options to understand your expectations from a prospective make-up artist. 

Decide On a Budget

Weddings are memorable, life-changing events and it’s easy to get carried away in terms of expenditure during their preparation. However, you need to be realistic here as well. You don’t want to end up broke post your wedding celebrations. So, decide on a budget for everything including your wedding make-up artist and try to look for someone who falls within the desired range.

Do a Trial Run

Sometimes what looks good in a layout or a tutorial might look completely out of place on you. This is not because each one of us is unique and different things suit different people. So, it is advisable to get a trial run of your wedding makeup and hairstyle a couple of days before the wedding. This will give you enough room to make any changes in your wedding look.
