Wedding day makeup!

 Wedding season is just about here! A girls wedding day is one of the most important days of her life, wouldn't you agree?! She should feel pampered, beautiful, confident, and worry free! Right?
This is why its so important for brides to leave their wedding makeup to a professional. A professional makeup is trained in makeup application for photography and lighting. The wedding photo's will be around forever and a professional is skilled in making the bride look and feel her very best in person and in the photo's. With all the stresses of planning a wedding, having a professional take care of the brides and bridal party makeup will make for one less thing to worry about. Plus, a makeup artist has a kit full of all the best products for every look and this should save the bride money on purchasing special wedding day makeup products.  The number one reason brides should hire a professional... because they deserve it!

Makeup and hair for Healthy Living Magazine August 2010 Issue by Nikki Smith Makeup Artist, Springfield MO

Back and June I traveled to a farm/ranch in south eastern missouri to do makeup for this cover of the current (august) issue of Healthy Living! Other than it being 105 degrees outside during this shoot it was alot of fun. The Photographer, Andrew Bowser of Springfield Mo did an amazing job as usual!
