When do you need special occasion make-up?

Thursday, February 18, 2021

No matter how often you apply your own make-up, there is no doubt that a professional has a way of achieving even better results. If you are wondering what the big deal is when it comes to special occasion make-up and why you should go for it, here are some things to consider.

Different types of make-up

The type of make-up that you will wear during the day is very different from what you wear at night. Day make-up is lighter while night make-up can be darker and more dramatic. When it comes to special occasions, however, you can take it all a step further and really go all out! Now, this doesn't mean that you need to plaster it on. It just means that you can make the most of colours that you may not normally wear at the office, for instance.

Professional products

Many of us do not purchase the most expensive beauty products on the market and this is where one of the major differences can be seen. High-quality products help professional make-up artists achieve the most beautiful results. You will also notice that the make-up will last and will not fade as the night goes on. You might need a touch up now and then in the event of some happy tears, but that's about it.

Complement your outfit

Your make-up artist is just that – an artist. They know how to combine colours and what looks best as well as combinations to avoid. Not only will they take into account what you are wearing, but also your eye colour, hair colour and skin tone.

Timeless looks

If you don't want to look back at photos after a few years and cringe at the sight of yourself, special occasion make-up is a must! Let the artist know that you want something timeless and classy. This is especially important if you are the bride or if you are the guest of honour at a birthday celebration.

Feel pampered

Finally, never underestimate just how good it can feel to let somebody else do your make-up for a change! You don't need to stand and perfect each stroke. Instead, you can treat this as a pamper session before the big occasion.

Remember, your make-up expert will always take the time to listen to your concerns before they come up with suggestions. You can also ask them to perform a trial before the big day so that you can make any necessary changes.
