Colorado Wedding Photography

My Favorite Colorado Hair & Makeup Artists

With very few exceptions, your wedding day is typically the most photographed day of your life. With so many images serving as proof of the day, it’s no wonder you want everything to look perfectfrom the flowers to the food and decorations. But nothing can upstage the bride, right? While it’s not the first priority in planning your dream wedding, your hair and makeup is a big piece of the visual puzzle. Sound stressful? Don’t worry! There are tons of great options for these services that will make your day easy and fun as you look your very best. But before we get to my favorite Colorado hair and makeup artists, let’s start with these five tips, straight from a wedding photographer herself:

• Take your wedding season into consideration. Unsure which shade of foundation to go with? Think about if you’re going to have a sun-kissed glow or if you’ll be rocking this look in the middle of winter.

• Choose a lipstick that’s all YOU. Nothing can be more uncomfortable than having a makeup artist suggest a color you’re not a fan of… Go with a color that feels natural and also gives you your favorite pop of color. 

• Drink plenty of water before the big day. Hydrated skin will allow for the best makeup application! 

• Don’t skimp on the makeup trial. Seriously, having a chance to try things out and change your mind means feeling confident and happy in the knowledge that the look on your big day is just right.

• Keep a few beauty products on-hand throughout the wedding day. It’s common to leave a makeup trial convinced you need to buy the translucent powder and lipstick. Truthfully, it’s very helpful to have these products on hand (ask your maid of honor to hold onto them for you) so that you can touch up between photos.
