I recently spoke with Sonia Ryan, creator and President of Sonia Ryan & Co., about the ways a professional makeup artist can help a woman become a beautiful Bride.
Having a professional apply your make up will alleviate your wedding stress – knowing you are in a professional’s capable hands will allow you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the morning while you prepare to marry your best friend.
Sonia recommends a make-up trial – this way you can build a rapport with your makeup artist, while she helps you to choose your wedding look. Your wedding style can be determined by many factors such as: your every day personal style, the style of wedding dress you have chosen, the theme for your wedding, and the colour of your skin, hair, and eyes.
During your trial, you will also receive a skin care consultation to ensure you are on a good skin care routine, and using products that suit your skin. This will guarantee you have the most radiant skin leading up to your big day.
Sonia can also help with scheduling you and your bridesmaids between hair appointments and make up applications on the morning of your wedding.
Hiring a professional make-up artist also gives you access to products and techniques that you might not have otherwise known of. Experts will be able to match your foundation 100%, offer air brushing for the most even skin tone, provide you with products to make you look your best in specific lighting, and much more.
When budgeting for your big day, make sure to include professional make-up for you, and your bridesmaids!
