Makeup isn’t about putting on a new face, but enhancing your already beautiful features and helping you look like the loveliest version of yourself. Elizabeth Betts of Betts Makeup for Weddings and Special Events takes this one step further, saying, the most ideal makeup look for a bride is one that lets her personality shine. “I love being able to provide women with a service that helps them realize their beauty. It’s so much fun!”
Betts Makeup is the newest makeup artistry business to Tyler and offers complete makeup services to brides and their bridal parties, including a color match and trial run. “My husband Michael and I are new to the Tyler area, as well as newlyweds. When we were planning our wedding it was hard to find an affordable makeup artist. I have about 10 years of cosmetic experience with brands such as Mary Kay and Estee Lauder. With the support of my husband, I decided to give makeup artistry a shot.”
Elizabeth is known for creating a unique look for every bride. “Everyone will be treated as an individual. This means I will not do the same look for everyone. Every bride will have an initial meeting, basically for us to get to know each other and go over what kind of look she wants.” Afterward, there will be a trial run about a month before the wedding or when the bride has her bridal portraits done. After that comes the big day when Elizabeth puts her makeup magic to work to bring out the best in the bride and her bridal party.
Since Elizabeth is also a teacher, mom, and wife, she recommends booking with her at least three to six months in advance. That gives everyone plenty of time to find the best makeup style, colors, and brands. “I am not trying to promote a specific brand because I think there’s awesome product in every brand. That’s what I think makes me standout from other artists.”
She also notes that if you already have a liquid foundation that you use, you can bring it with you to your appointment. If you don’t have one or not sure if it’s the best fit, let Elizabeth know what you want in a foundation (what kind of coverage, etc.) and she’ll dive into her makeup knowledge to find one that works best for your skin.
Whether you’re seeking a natural glow with minimal makeup or a bold look complete with
smokey eyes and red lips, Betts Makeup for Wedding and Special Events can help you achieve the look you’ve always dreamed of.
