A wedding is a very special day for both the bride and groom, but for the bride especially, it’s the one day that’s all about her and fulfilling her fairytale princess fantasy. As we’ve seen many times, brides go all out with the picturesque venues, fancy gowns, and elaborate hair/makeup. One make up artist, has recently been making a name for himself, helping brides achieve their dreams by creating subtle yet dramatic looks that seem to come straight out of a movie.

“From my early ages of childhood, the first drawing I did was an eye, a girl and a dress,” Bytyqi said.

He has also confessed that he used to secretly play with his mother’s makeup.

Each look takes an hour or sometimes more to complete.

For his bridal clientele he recommends that the bride bring photos of the make up that they’d like in order to show whoever is doing their make up.

“The truth, is that I spend as much time and effort creating a makeup look as I do on something more creative and editorial,” he said.

In addition to doing people’s makeup for big life events, Bytyqi also works in the fashion and editorial world.

Bytyqi says a misconception that people have is they often think the “barely-there” makeup look is something that is simple to replicate, but in reality a result that looks natural takes as much time and effort as something more pronounced.

“Make sure to have a bridal trial before the wedding, style your hair and wear your jewelry so you can see how the total look will come together on the day,” he gave as another tip.

Bytyqi is passionate about helping brides, as well as all his other clients, feel absolutely beautiful.

With or without makeup, he says that brides always look radiant and he goes on to describe their reactions to seeing their makeup as “priceless”.

When his brides feel incredible with their look that’s when Bytyqi’s says all his hard work has paid off.

“My favorite part about doing makeup is the ability to transform people and how it makes my clients feel at the end,” he said.

Brides aren’t the only ones wanting to look radiant on their big day. According to the New York Post, grooms are seemingly getting behind beauty treatments and groom makeup as it’s growing to be a bigger part of the wedding industry.

“You create a connection with the client on a deeper level and you help them find the true meaning of ‘beauty.'”

As you can see, Bytyqi’s final looks can rival fairytales.
