Wedding Makeup: Everything You Wanted to Know
What makeup trends are worth highlighting this season? How to find your makeup artist? Why do I need a wedding rehearsal rehearsal? How to plan a bride’s morning? Wedding asked Elena Yasenkov, a secular makeup artist and hair stylist, to answer these questions.
Elena, what are the features of bridal makeup and which ones should it solve?
– The first prerequisite is to leave the bride by herself. Of course, we need to emphasize the merits and smooth out the imperfections, but the most important thing is that the bride is recognized not by a white dress, but by appearance. The makeup artist’s goal is not to show the skill of makeup as such, but to create a pretty image, to give it freshness and radiance from the inside. But at the same time, makeup should reflect the nature of the bride, her inner world, and correspond to her. If in everyday life a girl always paints brightly eyes and lips, then wedding makeup cannot be nude.
Also, makeup should match the wedding outfit. Hair style, jewelry, veil and other accessories will depend on the style of the dress. And at the same time it is important to maintain the overall style and mood of the whole wedding. Everything should be visually coordinated and harmonious, in a single composition. A professional takes into account all the nuances.
How is the idea of wedding makeup born? What primarily affects the choice – the appearance of the bride or the concept and style of celebration?
– It is also important that the girl herself goes to face anatomy, and her wishes. But at the same time it is worth considering the concept and mood of the event. Say, a wedding in the style of the 60-70s is planned and it is logical to use arrows in the makeup, but if they do not go to the bride, the makeup artist must offer another solution. The bride is the main heroine of the evening, and the main goal is to make her on this day the most beautiful.
In addition to the above, the makeup artist must take into account the color of the eyes. The main task of any makeup is to emphasize the eyes. If make-up complements eye color, it is a harmonious make-up.
Also, a lot depends on the location and season. On hot islands, makeup can be radiant, sunny, with a minimum of funds.
What is most relevant today?
– If we talk about the image of the bride, these are light curls, makeup in golden, golden pink shades, a pleasant shine, neat arrows, an emphasis on bright blush that give rise to candy, candy associations. The feeling of tenderness when looking at the bride is the current trend.
How to find your makeup artist for a celebration?
– Where and how to look for a make-up artist is the most popular question. Of course, it is best to use word of mouth. However, as they say, trust the advice of friends, but check. Be sure to see what images the specialist created earlier. Today, a great helper in the search is Instagram. By the correct hashtags, you can find a wizard who just won’t let you down. Pay special attention on Instagram to the video because photos often do not convey the quality of the makeup artist’s work. The video is more realistic. And another tip: chat with girls who have already done makeup with this specialist. And, if the budget allows, do a test or rehearsal with a makeup artist.
Does the bride herself need to pre-select examples of work that she likes?
– A very correct decision if the bride comes to the specialist with her pictures and wishes. Further, the makeup artist enters the game, recommends which image is more suitable for her and the general concept. It is also desirable to have a photograph of the dress: so you will come to a complete understanding.
Do you think rehearsal is necessary?
– Personal acquaintance, or rather rehearsal, is an important part in the process of creating an image. In addition to looking for the right makeup concept, you come to understand what really suits you. But it is equally important to understand whether the specialist is suitable for you emotionally, does not cause discomfort with him. Wedding is a special day. Extra worries are useless. A lot depends on the makeup artist – your mood and mood, because you will spend together the first hours of such an important day!
How long before the celebration should make-up rehearsal?
– It can take place in a month or a week. But it is important that during the time between rehearsal and the wedding itself, you do not seem to have changed much: it’s, for example, about tanning. And so that you have the opportunity, if you do not like the specialist, change and have time to do the test with another makeup artist.
Perfect timing for meetings and conversations with a makeup artist?
– It’s worth looking for your master for at least six months. Many make-up artists have a record from September to next year, so make a priority assessment of the demand for a specialist. It is advisable to book a specialist in advance with a prepayment and signing of the contract. Having received such a guarantee, you will be sure that the makeup artist will not change his mind to work with you at the very last moment.
For your part, this also ensures that the decision does not change. As for the selection of wedding makeup, you need to consider the readiness of the dress, as well as the general concept and design of the wedding.
