7 Tips For Picture-Perfect Makeup On Your Wedding Day


7 Tips For Picture-Perfect Makeup On Your Wedding Day
When you found a guy who isn't a waste of makeup, you'll want to look your best on your wedding day!

If you are a bride-to-be planning your big day, you are indeed concerned with making sure you look as beautiful and ready for the camera as you possibly can! From finding the perfect dress to flatter your body type, to styling your hair, to choosing your favorite lipstick shade, you have plenty of details to think about.

Since I know how much pressure engaged women feel about maintaing their appearances for their wedding day from my conversations with them in  a pre-marital coaching context, I've recently decided to help lighten their load by interviewing some industry professionals to address their image-related concerns in an upcoming episode of my  Lovecast show on Wedding Podcast Network In addition, I've been talking to several brides and experts on a topic that is near and dear to girly-girls like myself: makeup!

Jennifer Membreno, owner of Almond Eyes Makeup Artistry, a division of Sweet Almond Wedding and Event Planning, sure knows a lot about makeup and weddings from her experience offering bridal and special occasion makeup artistry, as well as wedding planning services. I sat down and came up with some questions to pick her brain for the benefit of all of you fabulous YourTango brides-to-be.

It went something like this:

Rachel: What should a bride-to-be look for when hiring a makeup artist?

Jennifer:When searching for a makeup artist, you should always book a trial in advance of your wedding date. Understand that like you, makeup artists are individuals, who bring their personal style to their work. It is essential to make sure that your style and that of your bridal makeup artist is compatible. Typically a makeup artist will charge a fee for a trial, but it is well worth the extra investment to avoid any mishaps on your big day.

Rachel: Can you provide some tips to help brides decide how to do their makeup?

Jennifer: Research! Pick up bridal and fashion magazines. Cut out photos of any looks that you like. Keep track of them in a folder and bring them to your makeup trial to discuss how the looks can provide inspiration for your wedding day makeup.
