Why Bridal Hair & Make-Up Takes Longer Than Every Day Hair & Make-Up


Looking and feeling beautiful on your wedding day is an absolute must - it’s the most important day of your life and you’re going to be captured on camera for the whole day. For this reason, it’s vital that bridal hair and make-up is done to perfection (not to mention it has to stay put for the whole day), and perfection can take time.

Bridal make-up will inevitably take longer to apply than your everyday make-up look for a number of reasons. As a skilled and dedicated make-up artist, Liz Patey MUA takes time to blend the look, creating flawless skin and making your eyes truly stand out, all while ensuring it looks natural and radiant. Your bridal make-up should tie in with your every day look, just slightly ramping up the glamour. The products we choose will compliment your face admirably and be more a little more ‘wow factor’ than what you would normally wear daily - you’re the bride after all so you have every right to feel a million dollars!

Bridal make-up often is longer lasting than an everyday look too, which can mean it takes longer to apply. Bridal make-up will usually include prepping the skin, so the skin has a perfect glow - this can add on time but it is so worth it! Blushing brides need their look to stay in place right until their collapsing into bed in the early hours as a Mrs for the first time! From the moment you walk down the aisle until the first dance, Liz Patey MUA will ensure your wedding make-up looks utterly perfect.

Many brides also like their hairdresser and make-up artist to take short breaks in between styling and applying. This is so they don’t feel rushed or flustered, and that way brides can enjoy every moment whilst being made up and pampered before tying the knot! A glass of champagne or two certainly won’t go amiss. On the morning of your wedding you need to feel as chilled as possible whilst sipping on bubbles with your bridal party, so setting timings for your hair and make-up is absolutely key to a coordinated and stress-free morning. Allow yourself about 1 hour for hair and then the same again for make-up. That way no one is rushing, everyone is relaxed, and you can take in every second of the glam squad prepping you for the best day of your life.
