There's no denying the transformative power of makeup - especially on an important occasion like your wedding day.
Somewhere in Prizren, the Republic of Kosovo, wedding makeup artist Arber Bytyqi illustrates just this - he has been turning his brides into Instagram-perfect, almost doll-like versions of themselves. He regularly shares dramatic before-and-after photos of brides he was worked with on his Instagram account, which has garnered over 273k Instagram followers.
In an interview with BoredPanda, he shared: “When I meet my client, the first question I ask is what kind of occasion are they getting their makeup done for.”
“I also ask my clients if they have any specific requests. For example, if they want a natural or dramatic look.”
“Then I ask them [to show me] the dress that they are going to wear. The design of the dress and its details reveal the style of the look the client is going for. Then, I analyse their facial features," he adds. "Makeup is like jewellery for the face. Play with colours and shapes. Don’t be afraid to transform yourself. At the end of the day, you can just clean it.”
While we're marvelling at his makeup artistry, we're more about less dramatic bridal makeup (y'know, looking like ourselves, only better. But that's just our take. Are you Team Natural or Team Glam?
