On your big day, all eyes will be on you so you definitely want to look your best. If you can do your own makeup flawlessly then this would not be a problem to you however, if all you have ever learned about makeup is how to put on lipstick, then looking for a makeup artist is the best way to go. Here are a few tips on how to find a makeup artist and look your best on your special day.
1. Do your research
Look through websites, blogs, and social media pages for makeup artists and their portfolio or ask your friends and family for recommendations. Aside from looking at their previous work, make sure that you read reviews of their previous customers as this will tell you about how they work and if they can satisfy their clients’ requirements.
2. Invest in a professional makeup artist
You have invested in a photographer to document your wedding so it is only logical that you also invest on how you will look in these photos. There are makeup artists that can offer cheaper prices but you have no guarantee that you will get the look that you want. Remember that different people, with varying skin tones and facial features will need different makeup techniques to enhance their look. One makeup style may look good on another person but will not fit another person with different features. With professional makeup artists, you can be sure that they have the skills to determine what best suits you and the proper techniques and tools to help you look your best.
3. Have trial run
Once you have found your makeup artist, you can do a test run. Specify the look you want to achieve or look for inspiration in the internet and try it out with your makeup artist. This way, you will know exactly what you will look like on your wedding day and you have the option to change the look if you don’t like the way it turns out. A trial run will cost you additional money but it will definitely be worth it when you get the perfect makeup on your wedding day.
