Why should I use a makeup artist for my wedding?
Your wedding will be one of the most photographed events of your life. Even if you are used to making yourself up, contracting a makeup professional for your wedding will produce more natural photographic results. The eye of the camera sees in three dimensions but a photograph is only two-dimensional. Photography records a flat image that can tend to exaggerate facial flaws. A makeup professional knows how to use color and contouring to create a more flattering and natural dimension to the eyes, cheek bones and jaw line, as well as a more symmetrical mouth. You are, no doubt, spending a great deal on wedding photographs that will provide wonderful memories for a lifetime. Make certain you have the look you always dreamed of. Makeup artistry makes wedding day skin break-outs disappear. And just knowing you will look your absolute best helps to take stress out of the picture.
Remember that your complexion starts from the inside out.
The biggest problem I see when teaching skin care is dehydrated skin. Months before your big day you should slowly increase your water intake. 8 x 8 rule is an easy way to remember. Eight 8 ounce glasses are a good hydration place to start. Also think about proper nutrition and finding a good balanced way to eat for yourself. Your body and skin will thank you when you feel great on your wedding day!
How to keep lip color fresh on your lips.
To avoid lip color that disappears, leaving only the lip liner, line lips and smudge liner over entire lip. It allows the lip color applied on top to last longer, adhere better and leave no outline-only lips as it fades. To keep lip color from getting on your teeth apply lip color and then put your index finger in your mouth (like sucking on a straw) and pull it out slowly. For a chronic problem with this, you might try a lip stain with sheer gloss over the top for shine, since some stains can have a drying effect on your lips. To give your lip color more staying power apply a lip sealant over the lip color and let it thoroughly dry (about a minute) before putting your lips together. Smudging will be minimized for that first “married kiss.”
