10 reasons to have a professional make-up artist for your wedding day

1. Get your best skin

When it comes to wedding skincare and make-up prep, you need an expert. With Kelly, you not only get a professional make-up artist, but also a certified skin expert with over 17 years’ experience. She can analyse your skin and help you adopt a tailored skincare routine to ensure you have the best possible skin on your big day - clear, healthy and glowing!

2. You’re worth it!

You’ve probably spent a lot of money on your dress, your photographer, your venue… so why skimp on your face? You’ll be looking at your wedding photographs for the rest of your life so make sure you look your very best.

3. Be stress-free on your big day

Your wedding day is sure to be busy and you may be feeling nervous or stressed out. You don’t want to spend time worrying if your foundation is perfect or if your eyeliner is straight… Hiring a make-up artist will allow you to sit back and relax and let someone else pamper you on your special day. Kelly will listen to your concerns, your goals and make you feel at ease. She will come to a location of your choice (travel within a 20 mile radius is included).

4. Colour selection

Make-up artists study the art of colours. From lipsticks and eyeshadows to choosing the right foundation; they know how what will work best for you and your colouring. You may want to try a bold lip for the big day but don't know which shade to choose, or you may want a barely-there, glowing skin look… Kelly has been perfecting the art of wedding make-up for over 10 years and has created stunning, original looks on over 800 brides.

5. Be camera-ready

You may do a great job on your everyday makeup, but make-up for photography is totally different. For example, light bouncing off of make-up changes the way it looks; foundations with SPF in reflect bright white making you look ghostly… A professional make-up artist knows this and how to avoid it. Kelly will have you looking gorgeous in person and in photographs.

6. Make-up that lasts

Make-up artists use high-quality products that will last all day and all night! You wont have to worry about your make-up wearing off. By using specialty products like primers, setting sprays and powders, Kelly will give you a long-lasting makeup look for your special day (lipstick/gloss may need to be touched up due to all that smiling and kissing!)

7. Professional products

Since make-up artists apply cosmetics for a living, most have a kit stocked with high-quality products, designed for wearability and flexibility that you may not own or never thought to try! Not to mention products are professionally applied. Using a broad range of the best cosmetic brands, including MAC, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown and Tom Ford, Kelly has achieved stunning, original looks on over 800 brides.

8. Knowledge is power

Professional make-up artists know all the tricks to help highlight your best features while disguising any imperfections. Kelly knows how to do your brows to best frame your eyes. If you want to pull off a bold lip colour, they’ll pick the right shade for you. If you want your eyes to stand out, she’ll make it happen.

9. Your bridal party

As well as pampering you, a professional make-up artist can create a unique, yet uniform look for your entire bridal party. Kelly will take into consideration each bridesmaid's colouring and personal style. She can do a full wedding party up to about eight people's make-up on the wedding morning.

10. The experience!

It’s one of the biggest days of your life - sit back and enjoy the experience. Having your make-up done professionally is one of life’s best treats. You’ll feel relaxed, pampered and super confident - and best of all, you’ll look stunning!
