Tacoma Makeup Artist – Elizabeth White Artistry

Boudoir, Engagement Sessions, Elopements, Weddings & more!

I am so excited to be introducing to you my friend Elizabeth White with Elizabeth White Artistry. Elizabeth is a professional makeup artist with over 16 years of experience specializing in wedding and special event styling. She was chosen as the 2019 WeddingWire Couples Choice Winner, the 2018 and 2019 The Knots Best of Wedding Vendor Winners and has been featured in several online publications. Every client of mine that has worked with Elizabeth raves about her talent and how beautiful they feel!

When preparing for your big day, I know that there are a lot of details to think about. Elizabeth has been so kind to share a few tips for you as you prepare for your big day.

Every brides goal is to look their best and the most flawless as possible for all that comes with the big day. Here are a few essential tips to help any bride achieve that wedding day goal!

Tip #1: Prepare Your Skin

Your makeup will only look as good as your skin feels that day so invest in your skin the months and weeks leading up to your “I Do” day. You can do this with adding in a exfoliator to use weekly and being diligent with using basic skin care like a moisturizer with a spf and eye cream. If it is in your wedding beauty budget squeeze in a facial or two to work out any impurities and get your skin glowing. Facials are best effective in the months prior, not the week before as it can work out all the pre wedding stress.

Tip #2: Hire a Professional for Your Wedding Day

Solve you wedding day stress and invest in a professional to do your beautifying! You should focus on making memories with the ones that are surrounding you and not on your hair and makeup. It is worth the investment as it will allow you to enjoy the wedding day festivities if it is only a beautiful venue setting by yourself or mimosas with your bridesmaids.

Tip #3: LASHES! Need I say more?!

Do lashes! Even if you’re hesitant how they might feel or if they are for you, no matter how natural lashes really enhance any eye shape. There are individuals, clusters, and strip to achieve even the most natural enhancement. It can also help to try out a pair at your bridal trial, boudoir session, bachelorette party or engagement photos so you can really see how they make you look in pictures!

Tip #4: Long-Lasting Lip Color

Go with a stain or Lacquer lip! Makeup has come a long way and long wear is no longer an issue. If you opt for one of these long wear formulas you will not be disappointed and your groom will a thank you! My all time long wear favorite is Chanel Ultra Long Wear Lip colour because it really does stay on through kisses and toasts. If Chanel is not in your budget no worries! Colour Pop cosmetics offers long wear ultra matte and satin lip stains that do the trick with fun in trend colors too. Save yourself the touch up and go for long wear to enjoy your special night!
