Weddings Made Easy

South Africa Wedding Makeup

Finding the perfect wedding makeup artist is a delicate task that requires quite a bit of research and plenty of patience. As tempting as it sounds to take up your cousin's neighbour's beauty student sister on her offer to do your wedding makeup for free, it's really worth investing in a reputable South African makeup artist that knows just how to bring out your true potential.

Like any great makeup artist in South Africa will tell you, wedding makeup is very different to day-to-day and stage makeup. In this section of the Celebration site you'll find a range of South African makeup artists that know all the tricks in the beauty book – from how to make your skin glow in every photo, to keeping your mascara from running at the sign of tears. cont...

The important thing to remember when choosing a wedding makeup artist is never to base your decision on the pictures from one wedding alone. Instead, be sure to browse through pictures taken by various photographers in different settings to give you an idea of how well the artist can adapt to different photography styles, lighting conditions and background settings. Also find out whether the wedding makeup artist has worked with your photographer before and, if so, request a picture that portrays their combined efforts. If not, make plans for them to meet up before the big day and get well acquainted – at the trial run for your wedding makeup, if possible.

While it's always a good idea to have reference pictures on hand of the look you want, bear in mind that your makeup artist might have to adapt your wedding makeup for South African climate conditions, so don't get too attached.

In the end, wedding makeup has the ability to make or break your special day or, even worse, your wedding pictures, so save yourself a bucketful of tears and start browsing through these artist profiles now! ...less
