You will be photographed more on your wedding day than any other day in your life. Your photographs and video will be viewed and treasured for many years and generations of your family.

You’ll be the center of attention—that’s absolutely guaranteed. You probably know the most popular saying heard at a wedding is, Congratulations! But, running a close second is “You Look So Beautiful!”.

No matter what kind of makeup guru you are, no matter how savvy you are with the airbrush and contouring, you need to hire a professional makeup artist for your wedding day. Dealing with a cat eye gone wrong and dripping mascara moments before you walk down the aisle is not ideal…it’s one of the biggest days of your life, eternalized forever so don’t skimp on the budget and hire a makeup artist to follow you around and make you feel like a Britney Spears for a day.

Makeup artist and spa owner Cynthea Hausman is an incredibly talented, fun, and hardworking person that you absolutely need to be part of your glamour team if you want perfection. She’s based in Vermont but you can fly her anywhere your dream wedding takes you! Cynthea’s Spa in Burlington is a petite urban day spa and focuses on a mindful spa experience, to nourish, heal and support your spirit, heart and mind. She takes that same mentality and brings it to her wedding day packages, from just the basics to the most popular ‘Princess Bride’ package.

We booked Cynthea and her team for our Tried & True Wedding at the Trapp Family Lodge this past January and could not have been any happier. The entire princess package included a trial run before the big day, a team on-site applying makeup to the entire bridal party and in-laws as we sipped mimosas without a care in the world, the luxury of Cynthea by our side for a full 6 hours of necessary touchups, and everything in between. (Though not a hair dresser, when one of our girls needed curls retouched she stepped in to save the day and de-frizz her!).

Cynthea and her entire team will travel wherever you are to take the stress out of your big day

Cynthea had her own schedule, kept the other vendors on time, and even snowshoed up to the magical chapel with us to make sure our bride’s lipstick was as fresh as the snow on the ground. She goes above and beyond to make every brides vision come to life, whether it’s a sparklingly glamorous or golden natural look you’re going for.

You can even add on a Groom the Groom’ package, dealing with any shininess, redness, or blotchiness that often accompanies a debaucherous bachelor’s party the evening before.

Having your makeup done allows you to sit down, relax, reflect and enjoy what will be one of the best, but possibly the busiest, days of your life.  This is your “get pampered moment” and time of calm before the wedding storm.

When you hire someone like Cynthea, all you need to do is wake up and let them get you ready.  No rushing around, driving back and forth or wedding morning chaos.  Relax in the comfort of your own home, hotel, or wherever you choose to get ready.

Let’s face it, you might be a little nervous and overwhelmed and today is not the day to test your skills with a new set of false eyelashes or perfect your liquid eyeliner.  Let the pros perfect this one for you.
