There are two main types of Dallas cremation, direct cremation (which occurs soon after death without any services beforehand) and full cremation. If you decide that you want to do some traditional things before your loved one is cremated, full cremation is the way to go. You may have a visitation service for them or even a full funeral. You can even celebrate their life with the present. If you decide that you want to do some things before the cremation, you will have a lot of decisions to make about how things will operate. If your loved one is going to have a visitation or some kind of service, do you want them to wear makeup? Here are some ways to decide.
Will Makeup Help Things Appear Natural?
If you saw your loved one after their death, you probably didn’t even recognize them, completely. It’s still them, but they look different than they did when they were alive, which can help you to get the closure you need over their death. But makeup can help to give them the coloring they had when they were alive. They will look more natural, most likely, and that can help you to give them the honor you want for them.
Did They Wear Makeup Regularly?
Look at the pictures you have and love of the person who passed on and see what kind of makeup they had on in the pictures. You will want to pass off a recent picture of them to the funeral home so they can make them look similar. IF they wore makeup on a regular basis, you might feel like having them in makeup is the best thing for their appearance. If they never wore makeup, you probably won’t want anything visible on them.
What Would They Want For Makeup?
The things you decide about your loved one’s final services will need to be things you feel they would appreciate or want. They might not have made final plans and they might not have even told you what they wanted. But you have to do your best to guess at what they would most want for these things. Would they want to wear makeup? The ultimate decision is going to be up to you.
When you decide to have a simple Dallas cremation that is direct and to the point, you don’t have to do much other than buying a cremation package. That will take care of all of the needs involved. But if you want to have a full cremation, which might include a visitation and/or a funeral home service before the cremation takes place, you will have other decisions to make, like whether or want you to want your loved one should wear makeup for their final services. Consider what they would want, how they looked, and any other advice the professionals at Hughes Family Tribute Center have to give to you. We are here to help you honor your loved one in whatever way you feel good about.
