Plan for a Beautiful Day: Wedding Makeup

By Leslie Moore

We always recommend brides come in our studio for a trial run of makeup before their big day. During this time, the bride-to- be will have the opportunity to try everything from foundation, eye shadow styles, and lipstick colors. The beauty of having a trial run is you have the chance to try different colors and see your full glam look ahead of time. For example, if you thought you may like bright red lipstick, but it turns out you don’t, we will switch to a berry shade and find the perfect color ahead of time for your big day. We have the ability to tweak anything you’re not sure about ensuring the picture-perfect look you are seeking. It is important to us that our brides spend their entire wedding day enjoying moments with their bridal party, friends, and family, while receiving their glam verses having to make decisions on the spot.

At Merle Norman, we offer our brides a FREE complimentary trial run of wedding day makeup after signing a wedding makeover contract and locking down your wedding date with us. For your wedding day, we offer two options for booking. We offer on location makeovers, which includes your entire bridal party – bridesmaids and mother of the bride and groom. This is the most popular and convenient option for our brides as they are able to stay at their venue and enjoy brunch and time with their bridesmaids while our staff comes complete with everything needed for the full glam look. We also offer a wedding party in-studio makeover option as well. This is used for brides who may have a full outdoor venue and would like the in-studio experience.

Let us help you claim your beauty on your wedding day! For example, we know that when selecting a makeup look for your big day, it is extremely important that we select a foundation that is sure to last all day long. As an example, our lasting foundation offers a sweat-proof and waterproof option for our bridal parties. With this option, you won’t have to worry about sweating it off or having unwanted smears if you shed a few tears. It is also a MUST to use waterproof mascara for this reason as well. I personally always recommend and remind brides that on their special day, a more dramatic look will stand out best in wedding photos. It is important to remember this is a once in a lifetime event and having a look that appears a little more dramatic than the usual day-to-day makeup routine is encouraged. False lashes are also a popular option for many brides to help enhance the look of the eyes. We offer several different lash options ranging from natural lengthening lashes to more dramatic thickening and lengthening choices.

Choosing a focal point whether it is a bright, bold lip color, or a dramatic smokey-eye helps ensure wedding photos truly showcase your face. While you can choose to do both, most people select one or the other to accentuate their wedding day look. Contouring the face with bronzer and highlighter is a great way to sculpt and define your facial features for your  big day! While it may be more makeup than most women typically wear daily, these added touches will give your skin a glow, while showcasing and accentuating your favorite facial features. Call us today to discuss how we can help you claim your beauty on your special wedding day!
