A worthy splurge

Before and After

No this isn't photoshopped - just expert make-up application by Jenny Wible of Creative Edge Bridal.

Hiring a professional make-up artist (MUA) seems like an unnecessary expense when working with a tight budget.  And I would never suggest to you it is a necessity.  But it is a worthy splurge.

Don’t you want to be surrounded by your bridesmaids instead of getting ready alone?  Think about where you are planning to get ready on your wedding day – is there enough space for all of you around the mirror?  It can get really hot in a small room with a lot of bodies – not a fun way to do your make-up.

Today’s cameras will pick up any flaws in your skin – blemishes, dark circles, even recent sun exposure.  Are you skilled enough in your makeup application to hide those?

Some make-ups photograph better than others – do you know which ones to use? 

Planning a summer wedding?  How will your make-up stand up to the heat?  Or your tears of joy? 

A professional MUA can help you with all of these things.  You will sit in a chair, calm and relaxed while someone else works at hiding your minor flaws, enhancing your natural beauty with make-up that will last all day through heat and tears. 

So is a MUA a necessity?  No.  But I’ve never met a bride that regretted the splurge.

Be Carefree,
