If your big day is coming up you may be thinking about using professional wedding makeup in Brisbane. It's an excellent idea, as it not only takes the pressure off you but also ensures you look absolutely stunning.
However good you are at applying your own makeup for everyday wear, special occasion makeup is quite different. Wedding makeup is particularly challenging, especially if you're wearing white. Don't forget, you'll need that makeup to last for hours in all sorts of conditions.
For some skin tones, the colour white can be quite draining. A common mistake is for the bride to then overcompensate for this by applying too much blush. You also have to remember that you'll be exposed to all kinds of lighting. For example, your photographs may be taken outdoors and then you step inside for the reception.
With all these challenges it's an excellent idea to bring a professional onboard. Many brides make the very smart decision to hire professional hair and makeup services. The two really do go together and complement each other.
The one thing you don't want on your wedding day is a nasty surprise so try and avoid any drastic last minute changes, like a new hair colour. If you do want to try something new it's a good idea to make the change ahead of time. That way, if you don't like it, you can come up with an alternative.
It's a great idea to book a hair and makeup trial run. That way, you know exactly what to expect on the day. Do you go dramatic or subtle? Most makeup professionals recommend 'subtle and sultry' so try it out first and see what you think.
