Nothing can take away from the bride…

bridesmaid makeup

T he first thing we are told in makeup school is to never make the bridesmaids look better than the bride!

The bottom line is that if we are being realistic as artists, we know that often bridesmaids are paying for their own makeup and want what they want. They walk in with a plan of attack for their makeup and it doesn’t involve us talking them out of much. Nor should we. Our job is to meet the needs of everyone in our chair. The one thing that I use to pump up the bride’s look a little more is a special pair of false lashes that may be different from the others. In the end, the bride knows that when her bridesmaids pop out of the chair beaming about their look, it takes her stress down a notch. Brides want all their wedding party to emerge beautiful in the photos and it’s always impossible to outshine the bride because, on such a happy day, she is sending out an internal glow and sparkle that tips her beauty over the edge. It’s unmatched by any other woman that day in the entire building!
