Face Forward Makeup Artistry
Sarah is a wonderful makeup artist who really listens to what you want. I had a trial run with another makeup artist who would not listen and made me look like a clown. Sarah by contrast made me still look like myself, just heightened so that my features would show up well on camera, as my wedding was being photographed and video-taped. While she was working with me, she was very accommodating, and also helped me feel relaxed and gave a me a few helpful little tips that made go much better for me on my special day. She did my makeup as well as my bridesmaids (I thought her pricing quite reasonable for the 3 of us) and we not only felt great during the event - we looked terrific in the photos!
Do not wax your eyebrows right before your wedding day. You will expose new skin, leaving redness and shiny skin that is harder to work with. Give yourself at least 3 or 4 days before your big day.
Do not get a facial right before your special day. Unless you frequently get facials, you should give yourself a couple of weeks time to recover from a facial. Facials often times make your skin breakout due to the release of toxins from the skin during the process, so make sure you get a facial 2-3 weeks prior to your big day if you intend on getting one.
If you are not used to wearing makeup, get used to wearing it! If you don't own any makeup, purchase some basic-lipstick, blush, eyeshadow, mascara and concealer. Wear it around and get used to the feel of it. The last thing you want to be on your wedding day is uncomfortable!!! You will feel more comfortable wearing makeup if you give it some time.
