No bridal ensemble is complete without a serious glam session by alistbeauty make-up and hair artists. Before the big day, it’s super important to head off for a bridal beauty trial (or even a few) to ensure you can look forward to looking exactly how you envision on your walk down the aisle. By knowing these things before your wedding trial, you’ll be much more likely to love the end result, and feel confident you will look your best on the big day.
Your Desired Color Palette and Look
Red-lip glam with dramatic lashes? Enhance your natural beauty? Somewhere in the middle of “I woke up like this” and va-va-voom? Deciding what beauty look you’re dreaming of is important to help guide alistbeauty. (We are super talented, but they’re not mind readers.) Peruse through our web site Pinterest, magazines to help determine which styles and color schemes you’re most drawn to, and don’t forget to bring the photos on the day of your trial.
Your Skin Type and Routines
Knowing your skin type and what works best for you is really important to share with us. While professional make up artists will be able to tell at a glance whether you’re oily, dry or combination, you know your skin and daily routine best. By telling the us how your skin typically holds to makeup, your typical skincare rountine, and any problem areas you may have you’ll be one step closer to the perfect wedding day aesthetic. This will also help alistbeauty to decide on foundation types, application techniques, and other product decisions.
Any Allergies or Sensitivities
This is a must! If you have any allergies or sensitivities to products it should be the first topic of conversation you have with your makeup artist. This can help you avoid pre-wedding allergic reactions, redness, and irritation. Even if you’ve used a beauty product in the past and simply didn’t like the way it looked or felt on your skin, communicate it now. (As always, communication is key throughout wedding planning!)
