Whether you are having a small or big wedding event, I understand that the expenses can pile up and one of the things a bride thinks about is if she should hire a professional makeup artist and hairstylist or not.
Some brides who are makeup enthusiasts try to do their own makeup and hair while others would ask a friend or relative to do it for them. I, however, believe that there is such a great advantage in having a professional artist so if you are a bride-to-be or a bridesmaid, here are the reasons why.
1. Stress-free Wedding Day
Knowing that you have a professional makeup artist and hairstylist to craft your bridal look will take away so much stress on your wedding day. You don’t have to worry about the time, the application or if the makeup or hairstyle will look good or not.
With my clients for example, I provide on location services where I arrive at the requested venue to treat and pamper them; so, they just need to sit back and enjoy their moment.
2. You can dictate the look you want without feeling awkward
For some brides who ask their friends or relatives to do the makeup for them, I hear of stories when they feel shy to request a makeup look or say if they like the hairstyle or not. It is quite expected to feel embarrassed because you don’t want to hurt your loved ones’ feelings. But with a professional makeup and hair artist, you can freely give your feedback and say what you feel.
I always encourage my clients to discuss with me her likes and then give my expert advice on what will look good for her face type.
On YOUR big day, I am here to make you feel confident.
It’s important for a bride’s makeup to look classic and timeless on her wedding day. This is not the time to try Instagram trendy eyebrow or a rainbow highlighter! A professional artist can give you the best advice so you can have a flawless natural look on your big day, as well as share the right techniques on how to properly exfoliate your face and get rid of dry flaky lips so you’ll look perfect!
3. Your makeup and hair will be Dubai weather-proof!
Dubai weather can be unpredictable and depending on your venue it can be so humid at one moment outdoors then you are suddenly inside a very cold ballroom with AC! If your makeup and hair is not professionally done, you may find yourself looking worn-out even before the event starts!
Having someone who have worked in countless of weddings would know the best techniques to use to ensure that your makeup is excellently applied and will last the entire night!
4. Professional Products
Professional makeup artists use the finest products that are different from the everyday makeup women normally use. Some brides may think they should just buy the same products but doing this can actually be more expensive than just hiring an expert. First, there’s the danger of choosing the wrong shade of foundation, lipstick or lashes – then you have to worry about the proper application, because you don’t want unblended eyeshadows and droopy eyeliner on your wedding!
An expert will not only know what product to use but also how to use it properly on the bride.
5. You will look Picture-Perfect!
Brides are photographed all the time! A professional makeup artist uses high –end HD products and the right techniques of contour and highlight so that you’ll look perfect in every photograph, in any angle!
Tip: Do you know that silica in setting powder gives major flash back in photos? That’s right! You definitely don’t want to look like a ghost in your pics!
6. Wedding Specialization and Experience
Some of my clients will come with celebrity photographs and like to look exactly as their favorite celebrity. However, as a professional, my experience can help them know the right type of color for their skin tone or the right techniques to bring out their best features.
Although, it’s good to have a reference photo so I know my clients expectations but I use that to guide them on how to create the perfect suitable look.
For example, a cut crease eyeshadow does not always look good on deep set eyes, or wanting a high puff hairstyle on a long face may make your face look longer- these are bits of knowledge I’ve acquired through years of experience doing makeup which benefits the bride.
I also have worked in a lot of Dubai weddings so I am also very familiar how other suppliers work like the hotel, coordinators, photographers, florists, etc. This experience is important because I know how to manage my time to make sure you will look beautiful on schedule on your big day.
The BONUS? I am also an expert hairstylist. Why is this an advantage?
There are not too many makeup artists who are able to do beautiful, professional hairstyles at the same time. Having a person who is an expert at both makeup and hairstyling, takes away a lot of stress so you don’t have to worry about hiring and dealing with a separate person, who may not be able to execute your vision.
If you are a South Asian/ Middle Eastern bride, I understand that placing head jewelry pieces like a jhoomar or a heavy veil can be such a challenge.You have to have expert hands who is experienced on how to place it properly while maintaining your beautiful hairstyle and makeup.
7. You are worth it!
You spend so much money on hotels, decors, dresses and jewelry… but why think twice about spending on the most important person during the wedding – YOU!
You are the star of the show, and all eyes will be on you on your big day! So, it is very important that you also focus on yourself and be the best version of yourself on your wedding!
