It’s also worth remembering that every bride is different with their own style and personality. Some love natural makeup, others want the full-on glam, and some brides request alternative bridal looks that are quite rare even on Pinterest. There are rarely rules when it comes to their big day, but throughout history, trends have come and gone. Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua

“I got interested in makeup when I was just a child,” Arber told Bored Panda. “The first drawings that I did were of eyes, girls or dresses. I used to take my mom’s make-up and play with it when I was only five years old, so I knew that I’ll become a makeup artist pretty early.” Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua

“When I finished high school, my family didn’t want me to continue my studies in the beauty industry because in our culture it’s considered tabu if a male works in this industry. So, at first, I got a master’s degree in economics and only then did I follow my dream and started working as a makeup artist.” Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua

“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 analyze their facial features.” Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua

“We serve more than one thousand brides in a year. The summer, in particular, is a very demanding season for bridal makeup. During this period, I and my team serve as many as 60 or more clients daily.” Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua


“Makeup is like jewelry for the face,” Arber said to everyone experimenting with makeup. “Play with colors and shapes. Don’t be afraid to transform yourself. At the end of the day, you can just clean it.” Image credits: arber_bytyqi_mua
