Wedding day makeup tips from makeup artist Taylor Fitzgerald of Rouge NY:

1. Your wedding day should not be the first day that you meet your Makeup Artist. Always do a trial!

It's important that you meet your makeup artist before your big day! Having a good rapport with your makeup artist is just as important as the kind of work that they provide. Make sure you take the time to discuss your vision and be open to suggestions. After all, they are the experts.

2. Don't be afraid to ask your Makeup Artist if they are comfortable working on brides of color. 

It's important to choose a MUA that understands your skin tone. Be sure to ask for references and a portfolio if you are unsure about your makeup artists' ability to capture your desired look.

3. Use airbrush makeup it last all day and it's light weight and doesn't feel caked on.

On your wedding day, you want makeup that can stand up to continuous smiling, countless kisses, and all night dancing. The perfect solution for long lasting makeup that doesn't feel caked on is Air-brush makeup. Temptu Airbrush Makeup, glides on like air and doesn't stick to your clothes. Best of all, it feels so light, you may even forget you're wearing makeup.

4.  Barely there makeup is in and looks flawless!

Gone are the days of overdone makeup. The fresh, natural, face is what most brides are aiming for. Natural makeup does not have to be boring. You can still looking glamorous without changing your natural features. Use makeup to highlight your best features and finish it off with either a fun lip or a pop of color on your cheeks.

5. Coral is a great color that works on every skin tone.

If you're looking to add color to your wedding day look, Taylor, suggest coral tones for lips, eyes and cheeks. This color works great with almost any skin tone and gives your skin a natural glow.

We had an absolutely amazing experience at Rouge NY! Not only did my makeup feel light and fresh, it lasted all day and I got tons of compliments about my glow. For more information on how to book an appointment at Rouge NY, visit www.rougeny.com.
