Ok. We love makeup. We love making people feel beautiful. We love our job!...Maybe not so much blogging? 

OK yes! It has been forever since we have last blogged! But confessions of a (GOGO) makeup artist. We are not avid bloggers (or computer savvy!)! BUT this year, we are going to try hard to put down the makeup brushes and curling irons once in a while to hop on here and drop a line or two with some tips and tricks or products we love <3

 Today's little tips are for all the newly engaged that are planning their wedding and booking their vendors!! 

When booking a Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist:

Make sure you look through their portfolio and are happy with what you see. Make sure they use camera friendly (or HD) makeup products so you photograph beautifully. Make sure they have a contract to offer you (if they don't this could be a risk not worth taking on such a big day!). Make sure they use primers and makeup setting sprays that will make your makeup last! And, its a really good idea to book a trial run! This way, you are'nt nervous the day of wondering if you will like your hair and makeup and you're confident that day to sit back and relax knowing you will love your bridal look when they finish!  <3

HAPPY PLANNING!!

Bridal Makeup & Hair 

Choosing a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist for your big day is sooo important! At GoGo Gorgeous our mission is to make you feel incredibly beautiful, have you kick back and relax while we come to you on site and get you gorgeous to walk down that aisle!

When we meet with our brides for their consultation, we tailor each look to fit her personality and style. Every bride is different and every bride has a certain look that she wants to achieve! Its our job to help you find what that is and achieve it!!

To all you lovely brides out there- choose your artists and stylists wisely. I will leave with a few key components to look for when choosing! 

1. ask if they use products that are HD or camera friendly!

2. ask if they use primers and/or setting sprays to ensure your makeup stays on for the entire duration of your event!

3. ask if they provide you with a contract that will secure your appointment (you definitely want this if you are hiring them to come on site and arent going to a salon). 

4. if they dont already have a portfolio gallery for you to view, ask to view their portfolio of work they have done previously! 

5. check ratings on wedding wire, ask your wedding vendors about them to see if they have positive feedback!

Hope this helps!! Congrats to all the brides out there planning for their special day!! 

If you aren't already booked with us for your upcoming wedding, we would love to chat with you and help you in any and all of your beauty needs!

From Ms. LaBrot-- To Mrs. Johnston 

We loved working with Jolie LaBrot and her friends and family. They were such sweet, genuine people. In the short bit of time we spent together, we felt as though we had known them for years.

When we met for the consultation, Jolie informed us that she never usually wears makeup. She was quite nervous to wear makeup on her wedding day, but wanted to for such a special occasion. All nerves were put aside when Jolie looked at herself in the mirror after we were done. Her entire face lit up and she absolutely loved herself in makeup for the first time.

We love transforming the idea of makeup to those that are a bit hesitant towards it at first. They go from hesitant to then confident in knowing they wouldn't be complete to walk down the aisle without it! We love making sure that each bride is 100% confident on such a special day of her life. Jolie is a beautiful woman naturally, we just ensured her natural beauty was enhanced  and her confidence was boosted for her big day! :)
