There’s a reason why you turn to professionals when the stakes are high. If you were a celebrity walking down the red carpet, you’d probably enlist an entire team of hair stylists, makeup artists, and fashion gurus to make sure you look like as good as possible. And your wedding day is no different, which is why as the top source for bridal hair and makeup in NYC, we here at Prim NYC want to make sure you know just how stunning you can look with the help of a qualified makeup artist.
1-You Need Someone Who Knows Your Skin Type and Features
Makeup artists, often known by the acronym MUAs, are specialists trained in knowing how to accentuate your best features and make your skin look more healthy and radiant.
As the premier NYC bridal hair and makeup outfit, Prim NYC has experts devoted to meeting with you weeks, or even months before your special day to advise you on how to improve your skin so that it can look its healthy best. And since we employ only the top wedding makeup artists in NYC, our team can also highlight your most photogenic features, so that when you walk down the aisle you know that you’ll be putting your best foot forward.
2- Because Your Wedding Day Only Happens Once
A lifetime’s worth of memories will usher forth from the day you tie the knot, and you really don’t want to trust some part time wedding makeup artist to bring out your best look in a natural way that doesn’t appear pancake painted on in your wedding pictures — whether they’re the professional photos in your album or the oodles of selfies and candid shots taken by friends and family.
3- Because You Want to be Prepared
Many brides think that they or a friend will save money by DIYing their wedding makeup work. The fact is, most people who are normally competent at applying everyday makeup aren’t prepared for the sheer amount of pressure and nerves present on such a momentous occasion. At the very least, you should attend a professional makeup lesson well in advance so that you have some idea what you’re getting into before you make a final decision.
4- Let’s Face it, You’re Worth it
No matter how expensive you think a bridal makeup artist — or wedding hair stylist for that matter — will be, it’s almost always going to not be as much as you think, especially when factoring in the amount of time and stress you’ll save. Remember that you’re worth it, especially when you consider the value of some extra peace of mind on such a hectic day.
5- Don’t Forget You, and Your Bridesmaids, Will be the Center of Attention
There’s no place more competitive than NYC. That’s why a local, professional bridal makeup artist will not only know how to make you look your best, but also help to create a uniform look for the entire wedding party. You don’t want half of your bridesmaids with no makeup and the other half with full cover smokey, evening eyes.
An experienced bridal MUA will know what to anticipate and how to speak with any outliers in your circle to meet in the middle and avoid any problems before they start.
6- You can Meet Before the Wedding to Make Sure You’re on the Same Page
The last thing you want in the hours before walking down the aisle is a makeup artist going rogue and crossing the line from reasonable person to cosmetic dictator. Any professional makeup artist, such as our staff at Prim NYC, will know to meet with you far in advance to get fully acquainted, make decisions and set some basic ground rules. That way you can be sure to not have any unpleasant surprises or ego issues that you might encounter with an amateur.
Remember that your wedding day is your day and you need to be comfortable and happy in order for you, your groom, and your guests to have a carefree and memorable time. With the appropriate professional assistance, your makeup will be one less thing to worry about.
