Getting your Makeup and Hair Right for a Special Event

Getting your Makeup and Hair Right for a Special Event

Today I will tell you why is it important to getting your makeup and hair right for a special event in advance. If you have a special event, or occasion, coming up in your life, you will want to look your best. That means getting your hair and makeup just right. 

Plan ahead

To do that takes a bit of time, and planning. You will need to try out different looks and ways of making up your face and do so well in advance of the event. Doing so allows you to work out which looks, and styles, work for you and which do not.

Practice creating your special look

Planning gives you a chance to practice styling your hair in new ways and applying your makeup differently. Only with practice will you get the stunning results you are after. Practicing your new look will also give you the chance to work out how long you will need to set aside for doing your hair and makeup on the day.

Invest in good quality makeup

New makeup, hair products, and styling tools are not cheap. Planning your look well in advance of your party, special dinner or wedding allows you enough time to save up and buy the products you need to pull off your look.

Feed your skin and hair

If you want to look your best, you need to step up your skin and hair care regime. The sooner you start doing this, the better. As you can see from this article, it takes at least a month to renew the outer layer of your skin, and far longer for your hair. You need to deep nourish both so that you have a good foundation to work with on the day.

The easy way to do it

As you can see getting your look just right for a special event like a wedding, important party or award dinner is not easy. It takes a lot of time and effort to do so.
We all lead busy lives, so finding the time to get everything done can be tricky. Moreover, on the day you will often be feeling quite nervous, which means the last thing you need is the stress of having to do your own hair and makeup.

In my experience, a far better approach is to spend a bit of money and hire someone like Sarah Meredith Makeup Artist Manchester. This approach allows someone else to take the strain. Your MUA will make sure that everything is done on time, and to a high standard.

A professional makeup artist knows how to make sure that you do not need to spend the evening constantly touching up your face and hair. They will help you to avoid disasters like your fake tan leaching into the fabric of the dress you have hired for the event.

Sitting down and having your hair and makeup is done by a professional is a great way to relax. It gets you into the right frame of mind to enjoy your special day or evening. Without a doubt, hiring a professional makeup artist is a worthwhile investment. It is a sure fired way for you to look like a film star for your special event, party or other celebration.

    Fabulous tips! I keep telling myself I’ll hire someone to do my hair and makeup the next time a big event rolls around because it just seems like SO much work to do it myself.

    Planning the makeup look in advance is a golden rule, easier to do a proper makeup look then as well as having one that goes with your outfit! And practicing is also a good one, then you’ll know how much time you need later!! Xx

    I agree with practice creating the looks and hiring a professional 100%. I realized how much I spend on the day off trying to get my hair and makeup to look right and it’s so frustrating! If I don’t have time to plan ahead or practice ahead, hiring someone is the best way!

    I have great results with drugstore makeup as well! I tend to plan my hairstyle ahead of time but not my makeup.

    All very good points! It’s great to have the stress taken off you on such events, and well-worth finding a good hairdresser and makeup artist. A lot of hair salons also offer trials prior to the actual day of your event so that you can be assured that your desired look can be created.
