Makeup Artist For Wedding Day

5 Reasons You Should Hire A Makeup Artist For Your Wedding Day

Posted By:

As you begin to plan your wedding day, there are so many things to consider. From the perfect venue to the right caterer, decisions abound. 

And one of the most important decisions you’ll make if you choose to wear makeup on your wedding day is whether or not you’ll hire an artist or do it yourself.

So, here you’ll find 5 reasons hiring a makeup artist (or team of artists) to handle all things beauty on your wedding day is an amazing investment in your bridal vision and how you move through the whole wedding day!

Reason #1: You Deserve To Enjoy Every Moment Of Your Wedding Day

You’re going to be busier than you might think on your big day. Nervousness, excitement, and a sense of joy will follow you wherever you go. And that can lead to time crunches, shaky hands, and a drive to “get it all done” so you can enjoy the day. 

These are totally normal feelings to have as you prepare for your ceremony and reception. But why add “I’ve got to do my own makeup” to the laundry list of day-of to-dos?

Imagine two possible ways to move through your wedding day.

In scenario one, you’ve decided to do your own makeup. After all, you’re great at day-to-day looks. So why not this?!

So you hurry around trying to get all the other tasks tended to so you can eke out some time to create the perfect look. You’re left feeling frazzled and find yourself sliding on eyeliner before handing it off to an usher as you prepare to walk down the aisle. 

In the second scenario, you exhale and sit in a comfy chair as a bridal makeup artist uses luxury products to accentuate your natural beauty. You get to chat with your bridesmaids and cuddle your flower girl as you enjoy a glass of champagne and wait for the festivities to begin.

As bridal makeup experts, our AKO team strongly suggests going with that second approach to your big day.

You save time, conserve your excited energy and get to enjoy each moment while someone else makes sure every detail is handled.

That’s a bridal dream come true.

Reason #2: Brides Aren’t The Only People Who Need Wedding Makeup 

Oh, and those bridesmaids we mentioned?

Chances are they’ll need their makeup done too!

So, why not hire a team to help get everyone’s big-day looks taken care of and ensure you stay on schedule?

Anna and our AKO team are here to help you get things done. She’s hand-selected the artists that she brings to each wedding so that makeup is applied with precision and bridal parties large and small enjoy the pampering that comes with the experience of having your makeup applied by a professional.

Plus our team has experience in the bridal industry so we know what you need to look your best on your big day!

And, while you’ll definitely save time when you work with a bridal makeup artist, you’ll be surprised by how much it elevates your entire day to have a team of professional makeup artists there for your loved ones too!

Reason #3: A Talented Wedding Makeup Artist Makes Your Bridal Style Vision Come To Life 

So, what’s your wedding day vision?

Are you looking for a natural glow or a glamorous feel for your Long Branch reception? Want something chic or a bit of old-world soft elegance for a ceremony in Rumson? Or are you looking for something all your own for an Asbury Park beach wedding?

Whatever your vision, a professional team of artists is the surest way to create the look you desire.

And when it comes to capturing the feelings that come along with your venue and wedding themes, the task is best left to the professionals.

In those scenarios we mentioned earlier we left something out: What if, in addition to doing your own makeup, you had to create a makeup look that perfectly complements your vision for your big day?

That’s a lot to ask of yourself on any given day, let alone for your wedding!

So take a deep breath and flip through your Pinterest board or that Knot account you created. 

And imagine having an experienced, trained, and talented bridal makeup artist say to you, “Of course, we can do that. It’s going to be gorgeous on you!”

No matter what style you wear on your wedding day, the right wedding makeup artist can make it happen. 

And that can set your mind at ease from the planning process through the special day itself!

Reason #4: Wedding Makeup Artists Know The Techniques That Get You Camera Ready

Do you know how to do a perfect smokey eye? What bronzer works best in natural light? How to apply shadow to make hooded eyes pop?

Even if you answered yes to each of those questions, you may not want to put that kind of pressure on yourself on your wedding day.

And that’s all the more reason to hire a professional wedding make-up artist!

When we work together you’ll know you’re in great hands. We use the best possible products so your makeup lasts all day and looks great on camera. 

And as experienced makeup artists, we choose techniques, tools, and products that cater to your unique needs. So, we consider your skin tone, texture, and sensitivities as well as the feeling you’re after. 

From there we create a look that’s personalized to you. So it feels good on your skin and looks good to guests and in photos. 

And because we can bring an entire team along with us, we’ll do the same thing for your bridal party too!

Reason #5: Hiring a Bridal Makeup Artist is an Investment In Lifelong Memories

What’s in your wedding budget?

From the venue to the flowers to the videographer and even the caterer, you’re probably discovering all the expenses that come along with your wedding day.

And adding a makeup artist to the list may feel like a bridge too far.

While we’re probably biased, we think it’s one of the best investments you can make. And we believe that for all the reasons we mentioned above.

But also for one final reason, we can’t close out this article without: Your wedding memories.

From the moment that first camera flashes, you’re creating the one thing (aside from your commitment to one another) that will last a lifetime: your wedding photos. 

And when you invest in a professional bridal makeup artist, you’re investing in the most beautiful wedding images possible.

Your flawless, camera-ready skin, bright stunning eyes, and sumptuous soft lips will be immortalized in each and every image of you from your wedding day.

So hiring a professional makeup artist can save you time, energy, and worry. But it can also give you gorgeous memories for the rest of your life together.

And that’s the reason why we hope you’ll work with a make-up artist on your wedding day!
