If you are planning to get married this spring or summer, you want to have glowing skin and flawless makeup for your wedding photos. It is probably a good idea to enlist the help of a professional makeup artist for something so important. Here are some tips to help you find the right one for the job.
Look online at wedding blogs to get an idea of the style you want for your wedding day. Be prepared to show some photos to any makeup artists you meet with for a trial.
Find a few makeup artists in your area. Do research on their work and look for reviews from past customers.
If you are working with a wedding planner, he or she may be able to recommend a makeup artist. Wedding planners work with vendors related to all aspects of wedding planning and have likely received reviews from past clients.
Your makeup artist should have assistants available who can help with makeup for you and the bridal party on your wedding day.
When choosing a makeup artist, take into account factors such as whether the team can travel to your location on the day of the wedding, as well as the cost for you and your bridesmaids.
Meet with a few makeup artists for trials. Discuss the look you want to achieve for your wedding day and have them put makeup on so that you can see the quality of their work and make sure you are on the same page. Have someone take pictures so you can compare different artists’ work. This will also help to refresh the memory of the makeup artist you choose on your wedding day.
Choose a makeup artist you like and with whom you can have a good relationship. You will be spending time with that person on one of the most important days of your life, so it is important to have a good rapport.
A makeup artist should create a look that is comfortable for you. The artist should listen to your wishes and make recommendations but should not pressure you into trying a look that you don’t like. You should be able to communicate with your makeup artist when you do or don’t like something so that you wind up with the look you want.
