MOB & MOG Do's and Don’ts: 

Should the Mother of the Bride get Her Hair and Makeup Done?
The mother of the bride will likely want to get her hair and makeup professionally done, so be sure that she is included as part of your hair stylist's and makeup artist's schedules. Don't forget to take a few quiet moments among the craziness of the wedding day to spend some private time with Mom.


How Do You Do Mother of the Bride Makeup?
There is no set way the mother of the bride should wear her makeup. It is all about what makes her feel comfortable. Some tips include:
1. Enhance her Features
2. Be true to her Signature Look
3. Focus On Skincare
4. Go for Sheer Coverage
5. Use Pencil Eyeliner
6. Choose a Cream Blush
7. Consider a Smokey Eye


Does the Mother of the Groom Get Hair and Makeup Done With the Bridal Party? Should She Do a Trial as Well?

Yes and no. This is a personal choice and depends on the circumstances. If a trial will help her feel more relaxed on the big day, go for it! “Mothers that have done trials with me are unquestionably more confident and at ease on the day of the wedding,” says Linda. Many times it is not necessary if she has a picture of what she would like and you feel confident you can make that happen. She may want to spend a little time with both the bride and groom. If that is the case, she may want to start her morning with the bride and her group, then leave once she has her hair and makeup done. After that, she can head to the grooms getting-ready area to help him prepare for his walk down the aisle.
