Make up is expensive so you may also want to have a lesson or two & put your pennies towards investing in some luxury products. We suggest getting a lesson from Jennifer Peffer.
Its really important that you feel completely happy with whoever you chose. When selecting a make up artist, check out what products they use, ask how often they work (you don't want old stale make up that comes out once a month!) & note basics like how clean & hygenic does everything look. A professional will work with a kit insured for thousands of pounds.
This is also not the moment to be talked into a whole new look - its very important for the groom to recognise the bride! Be clear about what you want, however remember if you are unused to wearing much make-up, it may feel as if you are wearing a lot. You do need definition around your eyes & mouth to work well for the photographs. A good make up artist will make you feel a million dollars & look your absolute best in reality & photographs. Anything less at your make up trial, try elsewhere. This is also not the time to feel obliged by a kind offer from family or friends ... if you are nervous with what the results may be, simply thank them for the generous thought however you would not wish for them to work on your wedding day.
Please remember that at Crear there may well be more than a wee puff of wind so your hair needs to be firmly pinned or in a style that will only improve when wind swept! What may work well inside a city hotel where you are in control of the climate is not the style for a Crear bride.
