You understand how important beauty and makeup is on your wedding day and you want to be confident you will look fabulous in person as well as in pictures so you need to find a high-quality makeup artist. With so many makeup artists out there how do you start sorting through the good ones from the bad ones?
Decide what makeup style you want before looking for the makeup artist.
Already have a vision of what you want your makeup to look like that amazing day––it’s time to amass a few ideas so that you can narrow it down to a few choices. Look through books, magazines, and even in the hairdressing salon’s books for makeup ideas. Bridal magazines have great pictures or the Internet and sites such as Pinterest are useful.
Ask around and get referrals.
Ask your friends, family, co-workers and hairdresser if they can recommend a good makeup artist and if possible, look at the makeup artist’s portfolio to see if you like the artist’s work yourself! If you’re having your wedding planned by a wedding planner, ask if they have any makeup artist suggestions, because they should have at least one.
Examine Make Up Techniques
A true professional makeup artist has a keen eye for art. They view every clients face as their blank canvas to create a beautiful masterpiece. They are equipped with the proper tools and knowledge to use the correct colours and techniques that are needed to bring out your best features for your wedding day. Many professionals have received advanced training in makeup education, having gone to reputable schools and continue to take classes to keep up with trends and techniques for clients
Go for bridal trial
Be specific on how you would like to look on your big day. Use your collected clippings from magazines, etc., to show the makeup artist what your preferred style is. Check that they listen to what you really want. If you aren’t that sure, ask if your makeup can be done in front of a mirror, or if you can have a break every minute or so. Check in the mirror when doing this. Once your makeup trial is complete, the makeup artist should ask you if you’re happy with the results. If you are not, they should re-do the look until you are satisfied.
Make a booking
A good makeup artist will often be booked months in advance. If you are happy with your results, make your booking. Check out the makeup artist’s terms and conditions of business.If an artist needs to come to your place, discuss their availability for that date and have a plan B if this person does not show up for whatever reason, such as purchasing what the artist uses over the counter, and keeping a chart of the makeup routine, just in case.
