A comprehensive guide to bridal makeup, a transition into reception makeup, and all things bridal beauty!
POV: Your wedding date is creeping up on you and you still have no idea what you're doing about your bridal makeup. Bridal artist are all either expensive or fully booked, and you don't want to take a risk on a less expensive wildcard service (but don't want to mess it up yourself either!). Don't worry, you're not the only bride who's been stuck in this situation. Enter: My Ultimate How To Do Your Own Bridal Makeup, A Course.
Many brides do their own makeup, but may not have the understanding of what looks good on them, how to make their makeup long-lasting, or how to create a timeless look.
Many brides end up dissatisfied with their bridal makeup / bridal makeup artist. Makeup is so personal and sometimes another person is not able to translate your vision.
Due to the easing of the pandemic, bridal makeup artists are harder to book than they've ever been, often booking 1-2 years out. The odds of getting a great artist that's in your budget is getting slim.
The average rate for bridal makeup is $300. High end bridal makeup artists will likely charge $1,000+. While $300 isn't too bad, it still adds to the seemingly never ending wedding tab!
The Reality of Bridal Makeup Today
let's talk facts:
As a content creator and professional makeup artist, I am lucky enough to be sent so much makeup on a daily basis to test. This course includes the products that stack at the top of the top for me and are what I myself keep in my kit for my clients. They are my tried and true and are absolutely worthy of your big day. However, you can use your products at home for this look as well!
No two faces are the same so in this course I'll share how to customize this set look for your skin type, skin tone, and desired intensity. If you're a makeup minimalist that wants a little something without looking overly done- this is your course. If you're a full-on glamazon who wants to look like the most red carpet version of yourself, this is also your course!
Bridal makeup needs to be able to withstand tears, kisses, sips of champagne, and the weather, and that's a lot to content with! I'm sharing my top tips and tricks for keeping your makeup budge-proof from the First Looks, to the "I- DO's", to the dance floor and smashing of the cake to the face (ladies, don't let your man do that to the glam!).
I have created a signature look throughout my time working red carpets and luxury brides and it is a look I love and stand by. In fact, each bride I do gets a version of this look adapted to their skin tone, skin, type, and desired level of glam. Most of my bides like to keep things soft, but this look can be dialed up as you'll see!

You just need help to take your beauty super power to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what

I'm Megan, your new Makeup Coach/ Beauty Buddy
I moved to Los Angeles 4 years ago to pursue my dream of becoming a Celebrity Makeup Artist. Little did I know I'd not only work with celebs, but I'd become a TikToker, too! I now spend my time between red carpet clients, psoting about the latest makeup trends, and working with high end brides. I cannot wait to share everything I've learned from my time in LA as a beauty pro!
One of my favorite things about growing as an artist is taking other artist's lessons that I admire. After all, we're never done learning are we? I've expanded myself as an artist so much from taking classes with and assisting some of the biggest, most famous makeup artists in the world. For that reason, I made sure to include a vast amount of detail and technique in this course making it an excellent option for all makeup artists (whether you specialize in bridal or not.) My signature makeup look is very sought-after and my brides pay the same rate a celebrity would pay for my services.
As a makeup artist, my background is in red-carpet makeup. I worked for Charlotte Tilbury for years and was able to participate in major events like the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Met Gala, and TV Appearances for KTLA. After working with Charlotte Tilbury, I went on to assist celebrity makeup artists such as Katey Denno, Pati Dubroff, Patrick Ta, Beau Nelson, and Jamie Greenberg. This bought me on set of magazine shoots, major campaigns, inside of A-list celebrities homes, and helped me hone my skills as an artist.
My background in red carpet beauty served as the catalyst to my career working with brides as your wedding day is the ultimate red carpet!
