Your wedding day is the most important day of your life – and probably also the most photographed! We’ll work together in my private studio to go through trial options until we decide on the best look for your wedding day. On our trial day, we’ll take photos so you can see how your makeup looks in photos. And then on the day of your wedding, you’ll receive a makeup touch-up kit with instructions so that your makeup is still fresh all the way until the end of your reception.
Once you’ve selected your attire, it’s time to start thinking about hair and makeup or grooming. You might want to put a file together of various looks that you’d like to try, keeping in mind your hair length and texture. I only use high-end products such as Armani, NARS, MAC. We’ll take colors, dress cut and other important factors into account so it’s your best look. I suggest we meet to discuss these looks and do a trial run.
In terms of makeup, the questions I ask brides are:
What time of day is your ceremony?
Is it indoors or outdoors?
What colors will you be using?
Are you looking for something natural or dramatic?
After each look is completed, I take digital photos that I print for you so that you can decide what you like or don’t like. This also gives you an idea of how the look photographs which is especially helpful for those of you who don’t regularly wear much makeup. We can talk about any changes and I’ll know how much time to allow and plan accordingly.
“Betsy was incredible- she was so patient and professional. The number of people getting makeup kept changing and she took the changes in stride. She ended up adding a helper for the day, Amber, who was incredible.”
