Ah, weddings! Those celebratory moments in life that call for a little something extra in the appearance department. Whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid, or a guest, it makes sense that you want to show up looking your very best. But, don’t think getting your makeup professionally done is a “weddings-only” luxury. Below are a few more occasions when enlisting the services of a top-notch makeup artist equates to money well spent…
Family portraits, engagement photos as well as professional images should portray your best features, so go ahead and book professional makeup prior to your photoshoot. According to blogger, Samantha Corona, of Baus lifestyle brand, a “professional makeup artist will know what products and finishes work best for professional cameras.” Your “natural” everyday look won’t translate well if you do it yourself. You’ll likely get your pics and be underwhelmed and dissatisfied because it looks like you don’t have on any makeup at all. Professional photos require a bit extra to accommodate the lights and cameras and a pro understands this. Your MUA can determine which features to highlight and which to tone down so that your photos come out looking amazing.
Are you celebrating a special occasion such as a 30th, 40th, or 50th birthday? Or, maybe you want to look super seductive or elegant for your wedding anniversary. Applying your makeup yourself means you are likely to look just like you always do, but entrusting your look to a pro means you are likely to knock everyone’s socks off. There will be no doubt whatsoever as to who the guest of honor is once you arrive.
Reunions can bring up a host of emotions, like excitement or trepidation. Feel relaxed and confident in yourself by letting a pro do your makeup. That way, you know you’ll be putting your best foot forward when you reconnect with old classmates or long-distance relatives. Plus, you can confide in your makeup pro about any trouble areas (e.g., crows feet or dark under eyes) and they can apply the right products to help you feel most attractive and put-together.
Major life changes like extreme weight loss, surgery, childbirth, or divorce can leave you wanting to reboot your appearance. This is a great time to hire a professional makeup artist to makeover your look. They can walk you through which products work best for your skin tone/type and even show you how to recreate a basic everyday look. The personalized experience will help you feel bold and in-charge, so that you can fully embrace the next chapter of your life.
