Many brides spend a lot of time coming up with their look for the big day. But when they find their wedding dress, experience that Cinderella moment with the perfect shoes, and spend hours scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest looking for just the right hairstyle, and tick almost every aspect of their bridal ensemble to-do list, all there's left to do is find a makeup artist that pulls it all together.

Makeup artist and beauty influencer Arber Bytyqi is one of those people. We already covered his work in an earlier article, but Arber has been keeping himself really busy, and continued sharing before-and-after pictures of his clients, so we decided to do an update on what he's up to.

For this one you can say "job well done", I think. Even, I must say, that young lady looks good even without makeup

Since our previous piece, Arber's Instagram follower army has grown by over 100,000. "When I meet my client, the first question I ask is what kind of occasion are they getting their makeup done for. I also ask my clients if they have any specific requests. For example, if they want a natural or dramatic look. Then I ask them [to show me] the dress that they are going to wear. The design of the dress and its details reveal the style of the look the client is going for. Then, I analyze their facial features," the makeup artist told Bored Panda.

Not such a big difference. This bride is looking very good, both with and without makeup

Arber wanted to become a makeup artist pretty early in life but when he finished high school, his family opposed this idea. "In our culture, a male in the beauty industry is considered taboo," he explained. "So, at first, I got a master’s degree in economics, and only then did I follow my dream and started working as a makeup artist."

Now, he and his team usually serve more than one thousand brides in a year. "The summer, in particular, is a very demanding season for wedding makeup. During this period, we serve as many as 60 or more clients daily."

You can see the difference, must say

That's a lot. But Arber's team consists of 25 people (15 makeup artists and 10 hair stylists). "I have trained these people myself. Some of them ar working part-time and some are full-time employees. We can attend up to 100 clients per day. We start our workdays early in the morning and make sure our schedule has absolutely no impact on the quality of services, satisfying all of their needs."

Of course, the coronavirus has had its toll on these numbers. "In the Balkans, the wedding is one of the biggest events in a person's life. But due to the pandemic, a lot of them were postponed," Arber said.

This one is okay. Not as extremely contoured or photoshopped as the others.

If I'd known this girl without make up, I wouldn't be able to recognize her when she has this full make-up face on

Kim Karkrash is responsible for this trend of porno make - up. This woman doesn't look anything like herself. Nothing wrong with getting made up for a wedding but turned into someone else?

this is a general comment and not for #33 above. seeing all the photos, I think, it's terrifying. As a man I don't want to marry some Barbie doll. If I love a woman I (hopefully) do love she as she is and without one kilogram of color on her face.

She looks pretty! It's sad how everyone thinks they use photoshop, or that they look like barbies. For ONE DAY, like THE BEST DAY OF THESE WOMAN'S LIVES, can we tell them they look great, and stop hating? You acting like you don't want to look like a queen when you marry. It's so happy, and you ruining it by acting like an uptight prick.

They all basically look like Ivanka Trump... some blonde some brunette. Their eye makeup is all the same.
