Why you should consider professional hair stylists and make up artists on your wedding day.

On your wedding day you want to look special, you want to look your best! All the top models in the world however beautiful they are need make up to achieve the photos that grace the pages of the glossy magazines. A professional make up artist understands the importance of the colours, how to stop your face becoming shiny, how to make the make up last all day, how to cover blemishes and more. Top models don’t do their own make up as they are models not make up artists.

Photographically speaking apart from the benefits of having beautiful make up to help the photos a make up artist makes the photos of the preparations much more interesting and easier to do. It is extremely hard to get decent photos of someone who is trying to apply their own make up with their face close up against a mirror so they can see what they are doing.

It is also much more relaxing for the bride to sit back and let a professional take care of the make up, that way you don’t have to worry about it, especially as you have probably had a trial and therefore have already decided on the look you want for your wedding, the make up artist has only to reproduce that look.

The same goes for the hair. They need to last all day long in whatever style you choose, a professional hair stylist is much more capable of achieving this than you are. You really don’t want a bad hair day on your wedding day. If you are planning on wearing a veil a hairdresser will be able to insert this and pin it in place for you.

I know that these things all cost money and it all adds up on your big day, however the photos are going to be your record of the wedding for ever. It would be a shame to spend a small fortune on your wedding and then find that looking back on the pictures that your hair is a mess or your face is all shiny and sweaty.
