Choosing Your Wedding Makeup Look

For brides-to-be the list of decisions they need to make is a long one. Where am I going to get married, when, what’s the theme going to be...?
You get the picture; the list of questions they have to answer is almost endless. Amongst the most important is – what type of dress am I going to wear and what is my look going to be?
If you and your groom have already chosen a theme for the wedding, the answer to this question is not that difficult. You know that your look is going to have to fit into, and work with, the chosen theme.
Wedding Look

On the other hand, if you are still not sure about the look and style you are going to use, choosing your hairstyle and makeup for your wedding day is going to prove problematic. You will be faced with too much choice.
If you find yourself in this situation, the best approach is to search out a makeup artist in your area that specialises in weddings. Explain that you are struggling to decide on your look, and ask them what they can do to help you.
Book a makeup trial
Often they will offer you the chance to come in and see them for a makeup trial. During that appointment, they will assess your face shape, skin tone, condition, and current style. They will then talk to you about what you like, and do not like, in terms of style and fashion.
This is done to narrow down the options for you. Your MUA will then go through them one by one with you and discuss the merits of each look.
If you like a particular idea, they may offer to make you up in that way, so that you can see how you look. This approach is time consuming, but it is very effective because it allows you to experiment, which is the best way to determine what works for you, and what does not.
Naturally, you will normally be charged a fee for this type of appointment, which can take a couple of hours. How much, depends on the makeup artist and his or her business model, but, you should always ask in advance, about the cost.
Where to get additional guidance
Clearly, choosing your hair and makeup look for your wedding day is an important subject, and to be honest I have only touched the surface of it with this article. So, here are a couple of resources to help you further.
You can find out more about how to choose the look for your special day at Sarah Meredith. There is a huge gallery section on this website, which is a great source of inspiration. On this site, you can also learn more about what is involved in a bridal makeup trial, and how to prepare for one.

  1. The make-up trial is a great idea, really need to know how your look will look with your dress and hair. Although I got married in Greece and did my own!

  2. I think booking a make-up trial is a must, especially if you plan to hire a make-up artist, and also, don't forget to take lots of photos of your look after the trial. This will help you decide whether the look goes with you or not :)
