One of the most common things I hear as a makeup artist is “why should I invest in my makeup?” or “I don't want to spend more than $50 for my makeup”. As a recent bride myself I know how expensive weddings can be and sometimes certain things may not seem necessary to spend the extra money on. However, as a makeup artist, I also hear countless stories from brides past and present how they booked a “$50 artist” and they never showed up, they had to redo their own at the last minute or they were just unhappy with the end results. Now, I'm not saying this is always the case, however I hear it more often then you may think. We've even had frantic calls from brides the morning of the wedding while we are on our way to another one!
You invest in a photographer to capture one of the most important and happy days of your life. You invest in a gown to make you feel beautiful.
