Ready for your makeup trial?
Hair and makeup may be one of the last things you think of when planning your wedding, but it can also be one of the most nerve wracking because you definitely want love your look!
Bring Your Makeup Bag
If there's a foundation that sits well on your skin or a certain product you wear every single day, show it to your MUA. The artist may do a beautiful job with their products, but if you don't feel like yourself, you won’t be 100 percent comfortable with your look!
Arrive With a Clean Face and Hair
This one’s simple—in order to find that perfect look, get to your appointment with clean DRY hair and no makeup so your pros can start with a blank canvas.
Avoid waxing. (Pleeeeaseee!)
Waxing causes skin to become super sensitive, and applying new makeup products to your skin when it's in a sensitive state can cause irritation. Avoid waxing for at least two days before your scheduled trial date.
Avoid spray tanning your face!!
Only get a spray tan before your trial if you plan on getting one for your wedding. If you choose to get a spray tan, I recommend you ask them to not spray your face. Your makeup artist can easily match your face to the color of your neck, but sometimes spray tans rub off and will make your face uneven.
Don't use retinol.
If you use any topical products containing retinol on your skin, discontinue use at least one month before your makeup trial. Retinol makes your skin extremely sensitive, and using it before a makeup trial could lead to extreme redness and even skin burns.
Ultimately, you want to look and feel like the prettiest version of yourself on your wedding day, so definitely consult your makeup artist to see what he or she recommends for you!
