Guest Post – Flawless Wedding Day Make Up

15 Sep

To follow on from my wedding day skin care post yesterday all about getting your skin in top condition for your special day, today I have another fabulous guest post by make up artist Chloe McCall. Chloe, a successful freelance make up artist based in the West Midlands, tells all about achieving a flawless make up look on your wedding day.

You have set the date, got the perfect venue and chosen the most stunning dress, now it’s time for the finishing touches. Make-up is very important for your wedding day, it’s a day that will be remembered forever. So why not try the latest state of the art makeup application, airbrushing.

After working within the industry for eight years I specialise in creating a natural, radiant and defined long lasting look. It is very important the bride feels ‘a million dollars’, that the makeup feels weightless, comfortable and it will lasts all day. To achieve this I use premium brand products by Chanel, Dior, Lancome, Mac, Temptu, Clinique, Nars and Benefit to name a few.

For those of you that want to look as close to perfect as possible, Airbrush makeup is the way forward. The silicon based make-up is sprayed on through an air compressor as a fine mist of colour that gently covers the skin, giving the appearance of a flawless complexion. Spraying microdots of makeup that rest on the surface of the face looks more natural than traditional makeup because it is not rubbed into the skin and does not exaggerate the pores and lines. This process allows the Airbrush makeup to conceal better while enabling your skin to breathe. This technique has been used in films, theatre, special effects and high end photography. Airbrush make-up is suitable for people of all ages and every skin condition. Airbrush make-up is a great way to achieve a lightweight, flawless foundation that can be blended to match your skin tone and look completely natural. Airbrush make-up will cover many skin imperfections including tattoos, scaring and stretch marks. For your wedding day the silicon based smudge proof and waterproof formula ensures you can feel confident that your make-up will last all day and night. I offer airbrush make-up to all my clients, airbrushing make-up is the best possible make-up service around.

When choosing a make-up artist for the big day, most brides will go on recommendations or from reviews. It is always best to have a trial with the artist as you need to talk through colours, looks and products that will be best for you on your big day. It is also very important to see how the make-up wears on you throughout the hours after the trial. I believe it is very important to trust your make-up application to a professional on your wedding day as you need the make-up to look amazing and it need to be long lasting. On the morning of the wedding from my experience brides feel more relaxed having their make-up done for them, the hour or so they are sitting having it done gives them time to relax and enjoy. The aim for the day is that you feel like ‘a million dollars’, that the makeup feels weightless, comfortable and will last all day.

Thank you Chloe, sound advice for brides to be! I do believe that good make up makes the world of difference. If you would like to see more of Chloe’s fabulous work you can visit her blog here or alternatively you can ‘like’ her facebook page here.
