5 Tips To Get Best Wedding Makeup Artist

So, you have probably spent close to a year busily planning your wedding. You have the most amazing dress, the venue is booked, you have perfectly seated every guest and your cake is something anyone would be proud of.However, you can be contemplated if you are good enough to get your wedding makeup done. That’s why you might need to go for a professional makeup artist for your wedding; the biggest day of your life.

Here are our top 5 tips on hiring the perfect wedding makeup artist:

Experience

Steer clear of cheap pricing/cheap package deals, as they are often too good to be true. Choose experience and expertise over a cheap deal, as don’t forget once your wedding day is over, all you’ll have left is your memories and wedding photos. And you want to look good in those photos.

Portfolio

Make sure the makeup artist you are considering has an extensive experience and bridal portfolio under his/her sleeve. Bridal makeup and Fashion makeup are quite different. Fashion makeup is often not worn every day and can be quite bold. It may be done for few hours and thus it’s effect can be transient. Whereas,wedding makeup will be put to the test. It needs to last from sometimes very early in the morning, right through to midnight; it also needs to look good in daylight, under flash photography, and sometimes on video.

Brand of Products

Find out what products your Makeup Artist uses, especially if you have any skin concerns.You don’t need a kit full of supermarket makeup! Makeup Artists don’t just stock one brand in their kits, nor do we just stock makeup that is targeted directly at the consumer. Whilst we still stock many well-known brands, we also stock brands you’ll have never heard of. Makeup Artists are always rigorously testing products, to make sure we are putting only the best cosmetics and skincare on our client’s faces.  We stock specific products for all skin types, tones and problems, and have perfected our techniques to make sure all of your best features stand out.

Reviews & Testimonials

Read their reviews and testimonials from their website, Facebook or online wedding directories the makeup artist may be listed on. Reading reviews from other brides may help make your decision.

Have A Conversation

With all that, having a face-to-face conversation will give you best understanding about the makeup artist’s capability. It will give you a pretty quick indication of whether you are going to click with this person and if you want them around on your wedding day.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this blog and that you’ll now feel confident in finding the right makeup artist for your wedding day.
