About makeup services
Day makeup is excellent for young customers who are looking for a style that suits them and are just starting to get to know makeup. At the same time, our professional can also advise on make-up products, tools, brushes and skin care. Day makeup is also suitable for special occasions for people who are more inexperienced makeup artists and prefer natural and light makeup. Day makeup is also popular, for example, before an important trip to work or a photo shoot. Day makeup is a big part of everyday life for many, so even an experienced makeup artist can get a new perspective and ideas for their everyday makeup. As you age, the muscles, bones and skin of the face change, so age can also bring new needs for your everyday makeup. Makeup habits and styles also change over the years, so day makeup made with the same style for 10 years may no longer be the best fit for you.
How do day makeup and evening makeup differ from each other?
In our salons, less time is reserved for day makeup than for evening makeup, and typically day makeup is lighter than party makeup. Day makeup does not include applying loose eyelashes and the colors used are typically lighter and more natural in day makeup than in party makeup. The purpose of day makeup is to plan and guide you in your daily makeup and to create makeup that suits your lifestyle, which you can also carry out on a daily basis. Day makeup is therefore a good option when you want to get tips and guidance on daily enhancement that suits you. Day makeup done in a beauty salon is also suitable for special occasions if you are a more inexperienced with makeup and prefer natural and light makeup. Many customers also come for daytime makeup, for example, before an important trip to work or a photo shoot.
Party makeup takes more time than daytime makeup, and often very permanent, durable and careful base makeup plays an important role in party makeup. In party makeup, especially on the base and eyes, typically more products are used than in day makeup. When priming party makeup, in addition to foundation and powder, it is often appropriate to use concealer and highlighting colors, various powders for highlighting, shading, neutralizing and taming the shine, and blush. In party makeup, the eye makeup is also often built using several products. Party make-up eye make-up can use several eye colors, different contours and loose eyelashes.
Preparing for evening makeup
If you are a more inexperienced with makeup or you want to make sure that your makeup stays beautiful throughout the day and you feel like the best version of yourself, then we recommend you to turn to a professional who, based on your wishes, will create a long-lasting and beautiful party makeup for you for senior dances, graduations, important occasions, anniversaries or other festivities and special occasions!
If you have a picture of your party outfit, we recommend that you take it with you and tell us about your hairstyle so that the makeup artist can take these into account when planning the makeup. You can also show pictures of makeup that you like, as it helps the makeup artist to understand your preferences more precisely.
How do party makeup and wedding makeup differ?
The biggest difference between party makeup and wedding makeup is the trial makeup included in wedding makeup. Planning wedding makeup takes more time, and the products used in test makeup and their suitability are tested on the customer before the actual wedding makeup. Style wise, wedding makeup is often classically beautiful, while party makeup may use bolder trends.
Test makeup for wedding
In the test makeup, the foundation, powder, highlighting and shading colors and blush are chosen. In addition, we go over the customer’s wishes regarding eye contours and also choose the eye shadows used for eye makeup and possible loose eyelashes. In connection with the test makeup, the lip makeup is also planned and the products used for it are selected. Based on the test makeup, the makeup artist notes down the wishes of the bride, the products used for wedding makeup and other possible special considerations. Based on test makeup, the actual wedding makeup is easier to implement, when both the makeup artist and the bride have a clear unified vision and plan for the final wedding makeup.
The wedding makeup designed in connection with the test makeup is prepared for the customer from start to finish. If the customer wishes to include fake eyelashes in the wedding makeup, during the test makeup the eyes are not necessarily filled to the end with the loose eyelashes, but some of the eyelashes can be used during the test makeup. Based on the test makeup, the bride has the opportunity to test the durability of the makeup throughout the day, so that the bride’s observations can be taken into account in the makeup on the wedding day, if necessary.
We recommend all brides to have a test makeup done before the actual wedding makeup, and it is recommended to book both the test makeup and the wedding makeup well in advance of the wedding. It’s a good idea to do a makeup trial a few weeks before the wedding. With test makeup, we make sure that the makeup for your wedding party meets your expectations, and you will feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day!
We prefer the implementation of the wedding makeup in Blue Lagoon’s own salon, but if you would like the wedding makeup to be done in a hotel, at home or at a party venue, please contact our salon first.
We recommend coming to the wedding makeup with clean skin after the wedding hairstyle. The plan made during the test makeup guides the wedding makeup. Subtle changes can be made to the final wedding makeup even after the test makeup, if the customer so wishes. Good wedding makeup emphasizes the importance of high-quality makeup products. High-quality makeup guarantees good permanence of wedding makeup from morning to night, through tears and celebrations.
Wedding makeup takes into account all areas of the face. The final result is influenced by the customer’s wishes, style and personality, so the final result of the wedding makeup can be refined and moderate, really showy or anything in between these extremes!

Frequently asked questions about makeup
Is it possible to do fantasy makeup?
For special effects makeup, we recommend contacting the salon for a consultation.
Is it okay if I come in for makeup without having had time to clean off the old makeup?
It would be good to come to the makeup without makeup, so that the makeup artist does not spend a lot of time cleaning the customer’s makeup, especially if there is a lot of makeup. However, you are also welcome with your old makeup, because our makeup artist cleans your skin and applies moisturizer to the base of the makeup at the beginning of the makeup. In this way, we remove air pollution and e.g. possible impurities from the skin, so we can ensure that the makeup is even.
Can I make my own makeup base if I want the makeup to focus only on the eyes, lips and brows?
Makeup is always done according to your wishes. If you wish, you can come to our salon with base makeup and thus we use the reserved time for e.g. eye, lip and brow makeup.
