23 Photos Taken Before And After Brides Got Their Wedding Makeup (New Pics)

We already featured the work of Kosovan makeup artist Arber Bytygi, who makes such incredible transformations for brides-to-be that the groom might think he showed up at the wrong wedding!

While some might prefer a subtle, natural look on their big day, Arber specializes in glamorous, dramatic makeup, turning women into the Kardashian version of beauty – all smoky eyes, bold brows and painted lips.

To highlight the power of his makeup artistry, Arber takes before-and-after photos of his clients and the results are truly astonishing.

Having amassed over 300k followers on Instagram, it’s fair to say that Arber’s makeup looks have proven to be popular and inspiring for many future brides. His skill at accentuating the features of a woman is beyond doubt, even if a wide range of different and unique women do end up looking vaguely alike.

It all depends on the beautiful bride’s preference – if she prefers a more natural look, Arber can do that too!

“I got interested in professional makeup when I was just a child,” Arber said in an earlier interview with Bored Panda. “The first drawings that I did were of eyes, girls or dresses. I used to take my mom’s makeup and play with it when I was only five years old, so I knew that I’ll become a makeup artist pretty early.”

“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.”

“We serve more than one thousand brides in a year. The summer, in particular, is a very demanding season for bridal makeup. During this period, I and my team serve as many as 60 or more clients daily.”

“Makeup is like jewelry for the face,” Arber said to everyone experimenting with makeup. “Play with colors and shapes. Don’t be afraid to transform yourself. At the end of the day, you can just clean it.”

Oh dear. It's surely art to paint a face like that but those women look unrecognizable. A bride should look like her best self not like a doll. It's probably a matter of personal taste but I don't fancy that makeup style at all.

'look like her best self' - that's really nicely put.

FFS women, you're all beautiful as you are. Seriously, all the left picture is nicer to look than the over the top mask you put on yourself on the right. Yes, I'm a man. I strongly against makeup but I get it. A little makeup can boost someone confidence and it's oke, but this is simply ridiculous. You turn yourself into a completely different person. Please stop this clown act and be yourself and I can't point it out enough. You're all beautiful women!

For me personally most of it is way too much, the shine is unnatural, makeup of a Barbie doll, and I really dislike the mile long lashes and huge lips in superdark matte color. The women are beautiful and the difference is remarkable, but for me, other styles of makeup would make them even more beautiful.

I thought the same thing about the eyes and lips. 99% are overdone. I wouldn't have matched any of them with their original photo- they are so far removed from reality.
