Why Use a Professional Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist?
When it comes to wedding planning, finding your dream dress or the perfect wedding venue may be higher on your list than your hair and makeup. You might even consider doing it yourself or asking a friend. However, we recommend considering a professional hair and makeup artist. There are many benefits which outweigh the small amount of money you’d save. So, we spoke to the experts at Butterfly Hair and Makeup to find out why hiring a pro is essential for your special day.
Highly Skilled Experts
Wedding hair and makeup is very different from everyday hair and makeup. So even if you’re brilliant at doing your day-to-day routine, there are certain techniques, trends and skills that professional artists know to use that you have probably never heard of!
For example, a make-up artist will work out your skin type and advise you on steps you should take to avoid dry skin, oily skin or an unexpected breakout on your wedding day. They will also know how to highlight your best features, such as cheekbones, lips or eyes, or hide any insecurities.
A professional hair and makeup artist can make sure that your entire wedding look can last through the day and into the night, as well as tears, hugs, sweat and anything else your wedding day throws at you.
Your wedding day look might be inspired by something you’ve seen on Pinterest or by celebrities. If you have a professional, you can show them this inspiration during your trial. They’ve got the skills and experience to recreate those looks—whether it be a youthful dewy glow or a stunning up-do. With a professional, you getting the exact look you asked for as well as the reassurance it can be recreated again on your wedding day!
Butterfly Hair & Makeup say: There are a range of different styles that can be achieved for a bride. You’ll be surprised at what can be done with the right expert advice. That certain look that you may have in mind, may not be so far out of reach. For example, most of the brides we work with require hair extensions for volume and length. In which case, we will colour match and provide them completely bespoke for each client.
You really do need your hair and makeup done differently if you want it to photograph well! On your wedding day, all eyes will be on you. You are likely to be photographed hundreds, if not thousands, of times. This is where having a professional hair and makeup artist is essential. Even if you think you’ve put on the right amount of makeup, it’s probably not enough to appear in photos. This is why brides have to get used to their professional makeup looks. It may seem overdone at first but after it sets, it will look perfect in photos.
Experienced wedding makeup artists also know what needs enhancing so it doesn’t disappear in photographs, and how to apply plenty of product without making you look clownish or highlighting fine lines and wrinkles.
Professionally done wedding make-up will guarantee you look beautiful under any light, whether it’s outdoor sunshine, evening candlelight, flash or black and white photography. The extensive experience of professional hair and makeup artists can reassure you that anything you require will be taken care of so your wedding photos are absolutely perfect.
Butterfly Hair & Makeup: Should a stressful situation arise, your makeup artist will be there like a fairy godmother! As bridal experts, having done more than 300 weddings as a team, we have a lot of experience for anything that can happen.
Of course, a key benefit of hiring a professional hair and makeup artist means it’s another thing you don’t have to worry about! If you were to tackle your hair and makeup yourself, your wedding morning could become quite stressful.
Professional hair and makeup artists are used to working under pressure in hectic environments. So leave the organisation to them! Then you can sit down, relax, and get on with your big day, without worrying about messing up your eyeliner or fighting with bobby pins. They can also create universal looks for your bridal party, so all of you can just relax and enjoy the prep!
Butterfly Hair & Makeup says: By working with a ready team of beauty experts who bring their well-stocked kits with them, you’ll be prepared without the added stress. They will anticipate your needs so that you can relax while being pampered, and sip your champagne with ease.
You may be great at applying your everyday makeup, or feel confident doing your hair. But it’s your wedding day! The perfect excuse to feel extra special and have a once in a lifetime experience. When else are you going to have your hair and makeup professionally done? Hiring a professional hair and makeup artist may still seem like an extra blow to your budget, however, if you pay for a lesson and then buy make-up that you probably won’t use again in an attempt to do DIY make-up, then it may well be cheaper to hire an artist!
