Is a Bridal Makeup Trial Necessary? Khuraira Musa Weighs In

Did you know nine in ten Americans get married for love, lifelong commitment, and companionship? You hold a wedding reception to celebrate this beautiful union of two individuals. This is as good as any once-in-a-lifetime event, so it must be executed with perfection. Considering your big day will be pretty tight on schedule, it’s best to communicate your desired makeup and hair look with your makeup artist beforehand.

For our brides this season, celebrity makeup artist Khuraira Musa has taken the time to share why bridal makeup rehearsals are a necessity for your big day:

How a Bridal Makeup Trial Works

You want to do your research for multiple makeup artists for your bridal makeup. After all, it’s the biggest event of your life. You want to ensure your makeup artist is a specialist in bridal makeup; only then will they be able to relate to the severity of this day. This will allow you to get to know their skill level on a personal level. They also need to display professionalism in the truest sense, such as bookings via a contract.

Thereon, you may schedule one or two bridal makeup trials close to your wedding day to ensure you’ve communicated all the details of your look to the makeup artist. Bridal makeup artists are keen on recommending airbrush foundation for the day as it lasts long and looks flawless in that Insta-bait moment.

When to Have Your Bridal Makeup Trial?

A bridal makeup trial is usually held days before the D day to give the bride an early glimpse of how they will look walking down the aisle towards the love of their life. Here are two important things to consider:

1. Where Will the Wedding Be Held?

First and foremost, before booking a bridal makeup trial, you should have the venue and date of the actual event squared away. Knowing when, where, and what kind of weather you’re getting married in makes a world of difference to the makeup style. For example, a beach in mid-summer or a ballroom in the dead of winter both call for different makeup protocols.

2. Are You Done with the Dress and Accessories?

Secondly, at this point, you’re expected to reveal the wedding dress and accessories for the big day to your makeup artist. Being informed about the wedding dress style helps a makeup artist determine how relaxed or formal your bridal makeup should be. As for the accessories, knowing the color scheme and placement of the veil, headpiece, and earrings makes it easier for the makeup artist to determine how dramatic or soft your makeup should be and what your hairdo should look like on the day too.
