Brush Up On Wedding Makeup Skills
Make sure you are confident in all aspects of wedding artistry, including airbrush foundation techniques, spray tanning, and matching foundation for all skin tones. Your evening looks for event makeup need to be top notch. For example, many ladies will request that gorgeous cat eyeliner look, which will look spectacular when you know how to do it right. Keep your liquid eyeliner skills on trend and ready to go.
Popular Bridal Looks
You’ll probably consult with the bride prior to the big day about the kind of wedding look she would like to have. Take into account her wishes and the location of her wedding. A daytime beach wedding is drastically different than a formal evening one. Research all different kinds of wedding makeup, from more natural or fresh-faced to dramatic. That way, you’ll be prepared to accomplish whatever style you need to make the bride look her most beautiful.
