Found this online and I had to share this!
It makes a huge difference when you hire a professional.
“Why should you hire a professional bridal hair or makeup artist for your wedding day? The answer is quite simple, education, experience, knowledge and the stress-free, convenient environment they create. You want every thing to be perfect on your wedding day and so do they. The last thing you need to stress about is making sure your makeup and hair looks just right. Relax; hire a professional bridal hair and makeup artist that will come to you, which puts more time in your already busy schedule. You will save time and energy and its fun! It is very important that your hair and makeup will look as beautiful and relevant in 20 years as it does on the day of your wedding.
A bridal hair and makeup artist knows how to achieve the trendy styles of today without “dating” your photos, creating a perfect memory of your wedding day for you and your family to enjoy for years to come. Bridal hair and makeup artists use professional products and have the knowledge as to which ones will work with your particular hair or skin type. They are trained to create looks that compliment your dress, the theme of the wedding and your personality. When choosing a makeup artist, make sure you choose one that has experience in what is called “Media Makeup”. Media Makeup is the knowledge of what the camera (or photograph) will need for color and definition. Bridal Makeup artists understand how makeup will show up with the flash of the camera or under certain lighting conditions. With this education and skill, bridal makeup artists will insure your makeup is never too much or too little and that your wedding photos will be “picture perfect”.”
